Comments about Mens ASICS GEL-Foundation 8 Running Shoe:

I have been an Asics user for years, including the Evolution and Foundation. Like previous versions of the Foundation, it feels a little heavy. My comparators would be previous Foundation and Evolution models as well as a recent purchase pair of Brooks Beast. I have been running on paved trails, and the heel-toe transition is decent, though not as smooth and effortless as the new Brooks Beast. I would choose the Beast over these easily, but this makes for a good second shoe.

    Comments about Mens ASICS GEL-Foundation 8 Running Shoe:

    I was a former Gel MC+ user for years...nothing even came close when they discontinued them until I tried this new Gel Foundation 8---YAHOO!!! We're back in business with Asics, BIG boys! Very comfortable, great cushioning (I'm 210 lbs), excellent strike cushioning (fore and aft) and great stability. After 15 x 50-minute runs on these I am very happy and just bought my second pair to match the others. Finally something that substitutes for the MC+s's...bye bye to New Balance 1540 - what utter useless junk! (what planet are you people on?). So happy to be back with Asics!!!
