    • 5 out of 5 This is my second pair of Asics (first model was discontinued). I'm a power walker who damaged her plantar fascia. Podiatrist said get running shoes for stability and "live in them." Research said these were great for pronation issue, and they are. (I added gel heel lifts.) Love the fact that I can buy online and know the Asics last will be the same, so I'll have the same fit.

    • Stay w/Asics

    • 5 out of 5 It is a very good shoe. I last had the 2160, but on two pairs the seam teared near the toe. I tried on every other brand; but nothing fit me like the asics. I tried this instead of the 2100 line, and so far it has been good.

    • Comfortable!

    • 5 out of 5 A slightly updated version of the 1160's which have always been the only Asics that fit me perfectly. The 1170's feel slightly more sturdy, but the fit seems to be the same.

    • Great fit!

    • 5 out of 5 Bought these shoes for my wife and she already commented that these are lighter and better to run in than her last pair of Asics. She runs everyday on asphalt so she needs shoes every 6-9 months. She is very happy with this new
