Which ASICS shoe is right for me?


Choosing the right running shoe can be very difficult, especially if you are somewhat inexperienced or new to the activity. First off, there are a plethora of shoes to choose from, which can make the decision a bit overwhelming. Secondly, you have to know which shoes are the right ones for your feet and running style, because after all, every running shoe is designed for specific needs in mind. However, have no fear, because in this article we will show you three great runners from Asics and explain which models are best for different foot types.

Do your feet under pronate or have a moderate over pronation? If so, the ASICS GEL-Nimbus 14 is probably your go to option. The Nimbus line is known for their famously plush and stable ride, and the 14 gives you less weight and increased breathability for an all around more comfortable ride than any of its predecessors. For these reasons, the Gel Nimbus 14 has made our list of Editor’s Choice Runners, and is the perfect shoe for all of you under to moderate overpronators.

Next up, we have the ASICS GT-2000 for the mild to moderate overpronators. This model is packed chock full of some of Asics greatest technologies, including Personal Heel Fit Technology, a DuoMax support system for a stable ride. In addition, the GEL Cushioning Systems keeps your feet comfy mile after mile.

Don’t think we forgot about the moderate to severe overpronators, because we have something for you all as well. The ASICS GEL-Kayano 19 is great for these types of runners, and the award winning design of the Kayano line has only improved on the new 19th version. It’s equipped with a Heel Clutching System and Dynamic DuoMax for an all around comfortable and stable ride that weighs half an ounce less than its predecessor.
