Men's ASICS® GEL-LANDRETH:™ 7 :: Take it light, fast, and far with the men's ASICS® GEL-Landreth™ 7. Inspired by the memory of distance runner Travis Landreth, this 11-ounce shoe is a favorite for neutral runners who like to have their heel locked down. With an asymmetrical lacing system and a streamlined fit, this is a great shoe for racers, while also appealing to a wider range of people thanks to the ample cushioning not always found in race shoes. 11.0 ounces
Feels lighter and more open in the forefoot with less strapping/overlays as well as a bit longer in the toe box so the fit is a bit more like the nimbus/cumulus. The ride feels a bit less portly than the 6 and less bulky. A very smooth and nicely cushioned ride. The best one since 1&2.

Love these sneakers
I recently bought these shoes because I was looking for a faster ride with a lower profile. These are great running sneakers, and since it appears the 7 is the last iteration, I may have to stock up.
With a 10mm heel-toe drop, there was an adjustment period for my body because I was used to a 12mm (amazing what 2mm can do). But these shoes are so comfortable, and while the profile is lower and they feel lighter than 11 oz., I wouldn't call these minimalist because they have such great cushion support. I've read that people complained about the Landreth 6 being too narrow, and I hate narrow shoes, but these feel perfect (maybe due to the asymmetrical lacing).
Bottom line is, I expect these to be my go-to shoes, ideal for training and racing. I will add that since I've only run about 20 miles in them, I can't speak to their durability.
Light and Pleasant
First impression was that this shoe didn't provide much cushion on impact. However, the more I ran in it the more I liked it. I would get black toe nails with past shoes after longer runs, but not with the Landreth 7. Very comforable and light weight.
