    Asics GEL-EXCITE 6

    Asics didn´t keep us waiting for too long and with the new Gel-Excite 6 as a successor of Asics Gel-Excite 5 entered the market by the beginning of this year and definitely made some changes. So, let´s take a look at it :)! First of all, the newly appearing attribute of this model is the AmpliFoam midsole. That one specifically, promises a real strong flexibility of the shoe and all above, it is combined with Gel cushioning in the rearfoot. While AmpliFoam inside of shoe made a really good impression and allowed the model to really well adjust to the shape of the feet, the Gel cushioning I found a…

    Asics Gel Quantum Infinity

    In the fall of last year, 2018, Asics came to the market with a completely new way of cushioning. The gel layer that was inserted into the midsole is in case of Asics Gel Quantum newly laid over the whole surface of the shoe. In comparison to previous Asics models that had only gel in the heel part, this main modification here will provide you with exceptionally strong cushioning and real softness at each tread when stepping forward. The quality of cushioning is something that this model can really show off. It is comparable to technologies that we can find for instance at Adidas Boost, Saucony Triumph ISO 5 or…

    Asics GEL-SONOMA 4

    Despite not being a big fan of trail running shoes, I sometimes simply like to exchange the terrain and instead of comfortable park roads go for a wild run into the real forest. For such a situation, Asics Gel Sonoma 4 are an ideal option. First of all, they surprised me by the firm top. A lot! After having them tested on 250 kilometers, I dare to say that the upper really is durable. Forest roads, unmarked roads in the woods and steeper slopes, for this shoe are definitely not a problem. The rubber outsole wasn´t an exception. I barely noticed any changes. Plus, I appreciated the reversed-oriented, diamond-shaped lugs…

    Asics DynaFlyte 2

    After the first model DynaFlyte from 2016, Asics didn´t let the customers wait for too long and the new DynaFlyte 2 successfully entered the market in 2017 as a successor of the first version. What does the second shoe show off in this case? Similarly to the first model of this product line, Asics bets on using the foam instead of gel for the overall midsole layer. That´s a really big difference for this shoe, because with other running shoes, Asics was predominantly using the gel in order to create a highly absorptive tread shocking layer. The disadvantage of usage of gel technology is unfortunately a higher weight. So that…

    Asics Gel Kayano 25

    Having to find an appropriate pair of shoes for your leg imbalances might sometimes seem as a real struggle. If you take a look at most of the running shoes offered on the market, they are predominantly made just for neutral tread runners. But this is definitely not the case of Asics Gel Kayano 25, which is explicitly solving the problem of overpronators. As most of overpronators have wide, flat feet, it seems as if the producer really wanted to try to solve the two main problems.  The gel cushioning in the midsole from heel to front toe part, combined with the fact the shoes are really wide enough will…

    ASICS GEL-PULSE 8

    If you are trying to find an OK shoe for your every-day exercise in the gym or half an hour cardio training, this shoe should not be an omitted part of your inventory. The reason? Because when searching for a model that offers some nice features and is not excessively expensive, this might be the golden mean for you. The shoe has everything that a beginner or casual runner can expect. Actually, the sort of cushioning that is nowadays put into every midsole, EVA, in this case, it is even boosted to an alternative called SpEVA, which raises the bounce effect of the shoe after each tread. That is a…
