Customer Reviews

Comments: Love them!!! They are like the Kayano 17. I broke them in on 3 short runs, on Saturday went for an 11 miler and I felt great. I am already planning on getting another pair.
From: Tammy, Clay, NY, USA

Comments: These shoes are not worth the price. These running shoes are not comfortable and are super heavy. The worst shoes that I ever tried from this brand. Do not waste your money. Try any running shoes in person if you can. I did order my pair online. I do regret it.
From: Tina, Delano, CA, USA

Comments: Absolutely love this shoe. I won't wear anything else!
From: Suzanne, San Luis Obispo, CA

Comments: Love love love love love this shoe! I wore the Saucony Guide series through highschool as well as my first season of collegiate cross country, however, Saucony began to lessen their arch support and their Guide shoes didn't feel light enough. I overpronate quite a bit, and these asics have surpassed my expectations - they are lighter than my old saucony's but have greater arch support :D
