I wore numerous pairs of ASICS GT-2130s through 2170s before they redesigned for the GT 2000 series. The first edition had much less cushioning but a more aggressive and faster feel, which was a big change. The GT 2000 2 has more stability and cushion although I have to admit they don't feel as fast as the first release. But for anyone that liked this model before the redesign, you will be happy to have the old feel back.
**Update** I've run about 100 miles in these including a 10 mile run over the weekend and they feel great - the cushioning and stability are much stronger than the first release and on per with the previous GT-21XX models.

Great For Wide Feet with Neutral Pronation / Neutral Gait11 Feb 2014
- Published on Amazon.com
I have wide feet and low arches (darn near dead flat before wearing Vibram Five Fingers on off days to build foot strength), but I'm a neutral pronator. Thankfully a very helpful pro at a running store helped evaluate my gait / pronation several years ago, and introduced me to the GT 2100 series. These GT 2000 2 shoes take up right where the 2100 series left off. The Asics brand is one of the only options, if not the only option, for neutral pronators who need a 4E width shoe. Since I've also ventured into the world of minimalist footwear between my last pair of 2170s and these 2000 2s I notice the forefoot geel even more, and it's great for both runs and long days standing on concrete floors at work. Highly recommended.

Solid shoe for high mileage training / bigger runners22 July 2014

I wore the ASICS GT2100 series of shoes for years because their fit and ride were perfect for me as a bigger runner (6'4#, 200#) who does 30-50 miles/week and ~10 half marathons per year. Then ASICS came out with the "new" GT2000 shoe, which was a disaster (major structural changes led to me developing plantar fasciitis within a week). So I switched to the ASICS Kayanos, which I liked well enough until they messed with the fit on the Kayano 20. So, I tried the new and improved GT2000 2, and have really enjoyed it. The ride is improved, with better cushioning and less stiffness in the structure, but with excellent road feel. Weight is light compared to other shoes (like the Kayano) and light enough to be a good race shoe (just ran a half marathon in them in 1:56:21). With over 200 miles each on two pairs (I alternate shoes during the summer), the cushioning is still excellent, and all materials are wearing well.

Great cushioning and quality, but watch the size11 July 2014

I'm a recent convert to the ASICS family after being lured away from Saucony. I have the GT2000 trail running shoe and love it, so I figured I'd get the GT 2000 2 for road-specific training.
The good points about the shoe include its cushioning (excellent) and build quality (also excellent). I expect these shoes to last 500 miles. I'm a mild pronator, and these shoes do a great job of providing the support I need for long runs.
The colors displayed online are just as bright in person, and it's safe to say that one won't see too many other shoes on the road with the distinct "Orange Clownfish" accent color. If you're looking for shoes that scream "I LOVE COLORS!", these are probably right for you.
Here's where I provide a word of caution, though: When compared with other brands, this particular shoe fits a bit small, both in terms of length and width. This is most pronounced in the heel area, and for me, it caused a slight rub on my heel at first when I was wearing standard cotton athletic socks. A switch to a thinner running sock fixed the fit issue for me, but this issue may be a bigger deal for those whose feet tend to be close to the next half size/width up. If this describes you, I would err on the side of caution and get the next half size/width up. This is the risk you take buying shoes online.
In summary, you can expect great build quality and cushioning from the ASICS GT 2000 2 running shoe, but be forewarned that these shoes are on the smaller side, and you may need to consider the next half size up. Size issues aside, these shoes are great, and I intend to use them for a long period of time.

initial impression - similar to my 2170s31 Mar 2014
After reading a number of mixed reviews for the GT2000's, I decided to wait and pick up the GT2000-2. I'm a huge fan of the 21XX series and have been running in them for years. I have a wide foot, and the 4E's are just right. I've been running in these for about a week and so far, I'm impressed.
