The best pair of running shoes you can purchase. They range from 50 dollars to 190 dollars. Almost all dedicated athletes have used asics sometime in thier life. Smart Japanese engineers design them in Japan. Once you buy a pair, you will 90 percent most likely only have asics as your running shoes for the rest of your life.
14/15 track athletes at the city running club use asics for training

Runner's World Magazine: " the Asics GT-2110 is voted the best running shoe of the year. This shoe is an update to the GT-2100, which also won the running shoe of the year last year."

n. Killer running shoes. ASICS is an acronym that stands for the Latin phrase Anima Sono in Corpo Sono (Sound Mind, Sound Body). These shoes look clean, so a lot of people will wear them that aren't hardcore runners, but they run ridiculously well, so hardcore runners use them too.
I just bought some ASICS DS-Trainer XIII's.
