Comments about ASICS Men's GT-1000 2 Running Shoes:
I am 63 years old and have run in Asics since high school. I've always had good luck with them. I just ran my first 3 miles in a pair of GT 1000 2's. They felt pretty good. They actually have better road feel and feel just about as good on my feet as the GT 2170's I'm retiring. I don't think I went wrong with the sale price I paid for them either.
