The Nike LunarEclipse+ may be getting all the media attention but it is the ASICS GT 2160 that is winning the attention of the Great British running population.
During the next few weeks we will be giving you a sneak peek at all the major running shoes in the pipeline from ASICS, Nike, Saucony et al. This week we will start with the ASICS GT 2160 and follow it up with a quick look at the ever impressive ASICS GEL Kayano 17 next week.
For those who don’t know the ASICS 2160 is a performance running shoe with Structured Cushioning and will hope to continue the prestigious reputation of being one of the worlds best selling running shoes.
Some users may have been disappointed by the ASICS GT 2150 (please read our previous review). However it looks like ASICS has decided to right some of the wrongs with the GT 2160. For instance the Space Space Trusstic System has been greatly enhanced, the ride is improved for mild overpronators with a super soft lining with memory foam which reforms after use. The sock liner has also been modified for maximum comfort, greater cushioning and a really dry and healthy environment for the feet. As ever two new colour choices will be available.
In the next few weeks we will be providing and in depth review of the ASICS GT 2160 and hopefully establish if the modifications have improved the shoe and returned it to the top of the stability shoe rankings.
