SPEVA foam and a wider toe box are the main drivers of the new Asics GT 2000 7. Made to support excessive inward rolling of the foot, they are designed for those who are looking to run various distances. Asics is also very proud of its Dynamic Duomax technology. Its name has been printed on the side of the shoes. Most importantly, the technology is recommended for supportive cushioning. There is an engineered mesh upper as well. It is among the materials to consider for plenty of support and flexibility.
The Asics Nimbus 21 running shoes have what it takes to go the distance. Suited for long distance running, the shoes feature some of the most popular Asics technologies. At the same time, they come with a lower weight making them the lightest midsole design from the manufacturer. With a new Jacquard mesh material, they come with better breathability. Most importantly, they fix some fit issues present in the previous version.
The Tartherzeal 6 is one of Asics’ latest premium designs. It comes as the latest release of the speed series from the manufacturer. Incorporating technologies which enhance a springy feel and proper cushioning, the shoes are used across various surfaces for runs of various lengths. Among its main characteristics, the Propulsion Trusstic technology is worth having a look at. As its name suggests, it comes to boost propulsion. But there is more to these shoes than propulsion.
All major areas of the shoe have been updated for the Mizuno Wave Inspire 15. The upper is new, the inside of the shoe is new and even the outsole sees a new approach. At a first look, the shoes seem like a worthy upgrade. Judging the number of technologies considered by Mizuno, the Wave Inspire are still true to the Mizuno Wave support, but more modern than ever before.
The Saucony Kinvara 10 offers an energetic ride. The series have always been pushing technologies and materials further and maybe this is why the 10th release is so similar to the Kinvara. However, there are a few upgrades and adjustments which might make some runners consider the shoes. With the Everun technology in the midsole, there is plenty of energy and shock absorption to consider for all types of runs.
With a supportive underfoot for neutral and mild pronation, the Asics Gel Cumulus 20 LE is based on the Flytefoam technology. The technology is known for its responsive foam which can offer the same level of comfort on both short and on long runs. But there are other smaller technologies and principles applied by Asics in the Gel Cumulus 20 LE. For example, the HG10MM heel gradient shifts the weight of the body forward while the gel system works to limit the shocks ligaments feel.
Running on gel insertions while out on trails may sound like a dream. But Asics Gel Fujitrabuco 7 aim to improve an already popular shoe. It includes the comfortable shock-absorbing gel into the shoes. With a redesigned outsole, the shoes also offer a better grip. If the 6th release was judged for its poor performance on mud, this is not the case anymore with the 7th Fujitrabuco. With good mud-shedding abilities, the shoes are a powerful choice for uneven surfaces.
Asics has always made inspired running shoes. But it has never actually appealed to those who wear them as casual shoes too much. Can things be any different with the Asics Gel Quantum 180 4? The shoes are now very distinct in how they look. Apart from coming with a running platform to envy, they also offer aesthetics worth watching.
The New Brooks Anthem 2 shoes are now available for runners. The shoes are an immediate upgrade to the first Anthem and they look as modern as many Brooks fans expect. It goes without saying that the first Anthem release was a good release. It lacked a bit of cushioning compared to other neutral shoes. But the shoes were not bulky, they had good responsiveness and they were even chosen for their versatility as casual shoes. One problem they came with was the durability, which wasn’t helped by runners going out in the rain. However, the Anthem 2 fix many of these issues.
Brooks came a long way from its humble beginnings in 1914. The Brooks Ravena 10 are living proof of just how far the manufacturer can go to offer runners reliable shoes. All eyes were on the Ravena series to fix the comfort issues it came with for some runners with the 9th release. So has Brooks managed to improve the series while adding something new and appealing for today’s runner?
