Comments: I love these shoes! I have been an avid Asics 2160 fan -- went through 4 pair. These are the closest I have found to replacing them. I love them for Zumba fitness too -- light, flexible, providing cushion with support (I pronate AND have arthritis in my feet.) I tried the Kayano's first, but they allowed my foot to move around too much within the shoe. Most importantly, I would like to say I am new and loyal Running Warehouse fan! When calling, someone in customers service is always helpful and informative. While struggling to discover a replacement shoe for my old 2160's, Running Warehouse was patient with my order/return/exchange on two occasions. This will be my new go-to shoe shopping site -- and I am encouraging my other Zumba fitness participants to shop here too!

Comments: I love this shoe with its narrow heel and wider toe box. I have narrow heels and have a hard time finding any shoe that fits as well as this one. I needed no break-in period - these were super comfy from the first mile...no blisters or hot spots and they provide excellent support for my pronation. I'll be buying these again to stock up in case the model changes next year.

Comments: I feel the 2000 is softer, lighter, but the heel is breaking down and wearing out much faster after about 4 weeks. Over all not as durable.

Comments: I like these shoes very much. I went up 1/2 size from my "street shoes" size and this worked beautifully. They are not too heavy, however, they provide good cushioning and didn't aggravate my shin splints. Break in period was very brief which is also a plus.

Comments: I love these running shoes. I'm an asics snob anyway but I am very picky on my shoes. I like a little bit of cusion; not too little like Nike Frees and too much like Nike Pegasus. I run a minimum of 6-10 daily. I have not had a problem with the GT-2000s. Even breaking them in was super easy. My mileage is already up and I am buying the exact same pair again :)

Comments: Nice looking shoes. But just did not work for me. I run 20-30 miles/week. After running 12 miles in them, i started experiencing pain after mile 3. I could not walk the next day due to plantar pain in both feet. My feet hurt during/after each run in them. Had to return them and get neutral shoes.

Comments: Love this shoe! Found it to be the most comfortable ever since the moment I put it on. I am so glad I found these; I wear them to work daily. I don't think I can go back to regular shoes now. Don't hesitate, give them a try :)

Comments: I have loved ASICS (2150 & 2170) but the toe box in the newly designed 2000 is much smaller and tighter than the 2170. I wear a narrow shoe so I have limited shoe options. The 2000 AA is too narrow and the medium is too wide. Hopefully ASICS will go back to the original toe box.

Comments: Nice shoe but the toe box is much smaller than the 2170, I ended up having to go a half size up. Hopefully the larger size will work.
