      Great pair of trainers, I love mine - always run with Asics

      I've always said this and I'm not afraid to say it now "real runners run in Asics!"

      There that wasn't so bad was it, and for those that don't "the truth hurts doesn't it!" The GT2130 are my absolute faves, I go running twice a day, 5 miles in the morning, hence my being online now at this ridiculous time having just returned and showered. And I go out again at 6pm and have a steady 7 miler around the countryside.

      I love the 2130's because there so light on my feet, there snug, no rub no movement, completely fitted - its just as though they mould around your curves, bumps and lumps. There probably the only training shoe that I have never had any sore spots, redness or abrasions. There quite a wide trainer, much like all Asics really, which is much the reason why runners use them as they allows your feet to swell when hot.

      The light fabric and open woven material lets enough air to pass through to stop any real sweating and maintain that "fresh" run from start to finish. Great training shoes, whether your a runner or just want a nice stylish pair of trainers to go with your jeans if your out and about shopping.

      A real foot inverstment.

        My fave, one trainer for everything

        Asics are my favourite trainers, I've tried most of the others but I just don't get on with them.

        I have quite wide feet that are a bit flat, Asics 2130 really accommodate this and I've never ad a blister or rub from them.

        I run about 5miles a day and they are really durable, a pair lasting about 10-12 months. The colours are nice too-for ladies trainers- and if you get last year's colours, there is a big discount.

        The blurb says these are good for runners with different gait styles, personally I am a pronator and they do he trick for me. They aren't too heavy either even when they are wet.

        These will see you straight from beginning your fitness campaign to running the London Marathon, injury free and looking pretty stylish to be honest.

        The laces do come undone a little though, I swapped mine for flat laces and haven't had any problems.

        A worthwhile investment

        I started running regularly in June of this year, and was advised to invest in a decent pair of running shoes due to suffering from shin splints whilst running on the road in my basic trainers which I'd had for some time.

        Asics have a superb reputation for the quality of their running shoes & equipment, and I've not been left disappointed with my purchase.

        Although these were relatively expensive at £55, and I was tempted to buy a cheaper running shoe, they are honestly the best investment I could make in the improvement to my running. Since I've had these trainers, I've not suffered any form of pain or discomfort in my legs or knees.

        This trainer came recommended to me as I had my running style analysed and was told that I required a running shoe that helps to stabilise foot movement in a natural way; the midsole area of the shoe is soft but still firm enough to offer good support to your foot, and this model of shoe is suitable for running both on track & road. Each shoe is also very light, which helps your tired legs not to feel like they are dragging a huge weight along as you start to tire! The material of the shoe in the main is made of breathable mesh which ensures your feet don't get too hot as they begin to work; the trainers also feature several reflective patches for aided visibility when running in poorer light quality.

        I wasn't 100% convinced that a decent pair of running shoes could make as much of a difference as I kept being told; yet it was the first piece of advice that everyone who I spoke to gave me; I'm so glad I listened!
