      Comments about Mens ASICS GT-2000 2 Running Shoe:

      I've been running on the 2000 series for a number of years. While I am no longer a marathoner, I run daily in all conditions (-10 to 90, snow and ice to dusty dirt roads and hot pavement). The 2000 is a good durable shoe however it seems that the last is shorter this year. They also seem to be narrower that in past. I have returned them for a 1/2 size up and a wider size as well.

          Extremely light weight and an acceptable replacement for the Gel 2170. However not outstanding in terms of cushioning and comfort. After long runs, 8 miles or more, feet are tired and sore. Bought two pair to rotate. Still not certain I will keep these. will try training in them for two more weeks and make my decision. At this point I do not think I would recommend this shoe.

                I run 15 to 20 miles a week. Love the comfort and stability of these shoes. My only issue with them is that the sole, specifically the heel, wears out much too quickly.
                I only get three months out of a pair before I've worn through to the midsole. I have run in the GT 2000 series shoes for about 15 years and never had problems until about a year or two ago when they went to the 2000 series. I love the GT series. I've never had back, foot or knee problems and I am in the veteran of several marathons and many more half marathons.
                Even so I'm going to start trying some other brands in search of something with the same comfort that will last longer. Any suggestions?

                    I really like the shoe but as always it will be retired and a new model will be released. This series has been pretty good so far keeping the strengths of the shoe and I hope the new model will do that.

                      These are the shoes I wear to work everyday. I've done short runs with these and they do support my high arches. Wore a previous pair for a year before they wore out (mostly walking). These are my wet weather run shoes.

                      I walk 3-4 miles daily. I found the GT-2000 2 model to be the first ASICS shoe in a long while that isn't too tight for my 4E-sized wide foot. Had switched to other brands recently when my supply of the preferred older models finally wore out. The toe box in GT-2000 2 is wide enough that my foot doesn't feel too compressed, returning to the feel IMO of the GT-2110 and GT-2120 shoes. I just purchased the GT-2000 3 model (direct from ASICS) and first couple of wearings have impressed me even more than the 2000 2 model. Wish all color selections offered by the manufacturer were made available in wider sizes. Even ASICS site doesn't offer the more colorful versions of the 2000 2 and 2000 3 models.

                            As an avid runner, I was hesitant to purchase this shoe based on my experience with the previous version. However, I was pleasantly surprised, as it is much closer to the feel of the shoe it replaces, the 2170. I am very happy with the look and feel, but definitely a jump in price from prior versions.

                              I have a bad over-pronoation problem and have been struggling finding a good shoe. These shoes are great, they are cushy but yet provide great stability. I also really liked the Sauc. Omnis, but these ultimately won over, they did just a tad better with my pronation issues. Great shoes.

                                  I had given 2 coupon codes to see which would give me a bigger discount & assumed rep would put through the better deal. She did not. It makes me wonder if I should pay the extra annual fee for their "discount" program...

                                    Mostly on cardio machines (ellipticals etc.),running, biking. Great experience running 10ks in the past. Appears the quality has gone down in materials and workmanship compared to past asics shoes. The bottom rubber seems stiffer with less attention to detail and design.

                                    I love these shoes, they fit great, feel great, and so my feet are happy. The only thing I noticed is that they are slightly more narrow that the Asics Gel-NEO shoes I've had previously, but they still fit great. I ordered half size up as recommended and regular width.

                                    I use this mostly for my High-Intensity Interval Cardio training (think 30 sec sprints with 1 min moderate pace running). Great stability for my flat feet and stride. The sole has been durable and I've never had any issues with the shoe besides what I mention below. I even bought a second pair as my next set.

                                    What I dislike is how easy the layer just above the Dynamic DuoMax(tm) tends to rip away or seperate from the shoe base, especially when removing the shoe after a workout, so one should be careful about it, which is why it got 4 starts instead of 5. Aside from that, the construction of the material is good.

                                        I've run in Asics for 34 years. Occasionally trying Nike, Addidas and Brooks. Always go back to Asics. Im 200 lbs. now, 65 and a bit beat up with a little knee, hip, and back aches!!! The feel, and cushioning of these 2000 are terrific. I loved the old 2080s, and have worn some 2160s and 70s, and these remind me of the old 2080s!!!

                                        Only had them a few weeks so I don't know about durability yet.
                                        only 4 stars since they are still new.

                                        The toe box is very thin. Within 2 months of use my toe has broken through the mesh. Expected better than this for such an expensive shoe. Cushioning didn't last long.

                                          I switched to the GT 2000 2 after I developed some flexor hallicus longus irritation earlier this spring on longer runs in my Mizuno Wave Elixers. I was on my 3rd pair of Elixers (and was VERY unhappy that Mizuno no longer would be making them) when this developed. I mixed up my runs more, worked on some good mobility/strength/balance exercise and just couldn't get over the FHL pain once I got into the 9-10 mile range. I switched to the GT 2000 2 knowing that a bit more pronation control for those longer runs would unload that a bit. It worked like a charm and now these have become my go-to shoe for longer distances of greater than 8-9 miles. I rotate them with my Wave Elixers and Saucony Fast Twitch (sprint work, general exercise) and have been very happy with that group.

                                          These shoes have held up extremely well compared to the lighter weight Elixers and Fast Twitch so I am hoping to get a whole lot of miles out of these. Thanks to the RRS team for answering a bunch of questions for me when choosing to head to the GT 2000 2.

                                            I am in my 40s and a very long-time user of the Asics GT-2000 series (basically since they were created). I wear a 13B, 6'3", ~170 lbs. I train for and run two half-marathons per year, and use these shoes for most of my longer runs.

                                            This version is more consistent with historical models than last year's GT-2000s. Specifically, they are more cushioned and less flexible in the forefoot, and feel like they have more curvature in the forefoot sole which enables the transition to pushing off with less foot flex. For those the disliked the changes last year, you'll probably like these. For those that adjusted and now like the flexibility of last years GT-2000s (like me), these will take some adjusting to as they feel quite stiff. I had calf soreness from the first couple of longer runs.

                                            For others like me with narrow feet who need a B width, these remain a solid option.

                                              Comments about Mens ASICS GT-2000 2 Running Shoe:

                                              I'm currently training for my first marathon and started running into issues with pain coming from my forefoot when doing long runs in my Mizuno Wave Inspries. I have run in the 5 previous versions of the Mizuno's, and although they are a great shoe, I was having issues when the mileage really started to increase (running 5x a week). I do have ankle issues as a result of a previously broken ankle which does affect my foot strike so that might have been part of the issue. Anyway, after putting in 120 miles on the GT 2000-2's I can say I absolutely love these shoes. Long runs are no issue (the forefoot cushion in this shoe is awesome) and the ankle and foot pain that had become common place with the Mizuno's is now gone. Great shoe for my needs- I've recently added a 2nd pair to the rotation.
                                              I have noticed that the rubber on the sole does seem to wear a bit quicker than the Mizuno's did but it doesn't seem to be an issue at this point.
                                              Other shoes I also tried out: Asics Gel Kayano 20 / Saucony Hurricane 15. Both were good shoes but didn't have the same results as the GT's.
