Product Description

ASICS are back with their flagship running shoe... Now even more cushioned and even LIGHTER!... welcome to the new ASICS GT-2170 from the Spring/Summer 2012 range The 2000 series has always been favoured with runners for its fit, ride and stability, the GT-2000TM series just keeps getting better and better. Weight reduction combined with a larger Rearfoot GEL® Cushioning System improves an already amazing ride, and makes the GT-2170TM the lightest model in its storied history. The full length Guidance Line, a groove on the underside of the sole, focuses the runner's tread reducing energy wastage and fatigue. The main benefit of Guidance Line is a more efficient path through the gait cycle, but it also helps the shoe shed some weight as well.

I had a lower leg injury where my left leg would lock up under my gastroc muscle, probably caused by weak muscles all over the leg and the impacts from running on concrete. I switched to these shoes from a pair of Brooks. There is more cushioning in the heel and midfoot which means I can now run longer and with little stiffness/pain, the stiffness has almost all gone in a very short time. I seem to be able to land midfoot with these more easily, and my running form feels better, I feel like I'm gliding along.

I bought these after suffering sore feet and minor injury running in cheap trainers.
Doing some research on which trainers to buy for flat feet, I found these had good recommendations.
Their qualities include; cushioning, lightweight design, comfort and support; and more importantly priced within my budget.
After 200 miles of treadmill use, they are comfortable, fully supportive, I no longer have sore or injured feet, and show no signs of ware.
I have only used these trainers on a treadmill, but based on that experience will give them top marks; and recommend to all treadmill users.

The ASICS GT 2170 is an excellent trainer. Recommended by my physio post spinal surgery, the item arrived on time from Amazon. I had tried the shoe in a sports shop 1st before ordering online. The store price was 120, Amazon's price was 74, can't beat that. The trainer is very comfortable, especially for my physio's workout. The Duomax support is superb. Can't fault with this product. I would recommend this trainer highly.

I was off on holiday and needed an alternative to my Asics trail shoe which as being goretex lined would have been far too warm for my feet in sunny Rome (it was in the high 90's). Several years back after a running shop had examined my gait they had recommend a GT2120 and so that was what I was after once again (still have the 2120 but they are looking a bit sad now) as they were very cool in the hot weather and fairly warm in cool weather as well (leaving the trail shoes for rainy and cold days).

I soon discovered that the 2120 was no longer produced and so called Asics (in the UK) and explained what I had and what and why I was looking for in a replacement. They could not have been more helpful, I was put directly through to their technical team who listened very careful and gave me their recommendations, it was a genuine pleasure to talk to them.

I ordered the 2170 and they arrived the following day, not having a chance to wear them (except in the house) I took them on holiday 2 days later as my only pair of shoes.

For 4 days I wore them around Rome and Venice in temperatures approaching 100 degrees and these shoes did an admiral job in preventing my feet from boiling over and therefore I was extremely pleased with them. I did manage to get a whopping blister on the inside of my heal where the insole meets the fabric of the shoe on the first day but I don't blame the shoe for this for the following reasons... 1) I was wearing thin trainer socks for the first time, I normally wear thicker sports socks 2) The pronation of my foot was trying to go one way and the shoes were going "I don't think so" as exactly as they should, 3) It was the first time I'd worn the shoes for more than 2 hours, 4) It was almost 100 degrees..

got these as replacement for my saucony pro grid stabil trainers. Their size was true and I took them for a 8k run straight out of the box. Must say I'm happy with them, they are light yet strong and stable. I'll get another pair next year.

I bought 2 pairs having read good reviews and having previously owned 2000 Series Trainers. I usually buy 3 pairs at a time as I enjoy STEP aerobics and other fitnes classes and get through them really quickly.

I always purchase ASICS Duomax soles as they inhibit mild pronation (rolling outwards) important for me.

Anyhoo the short of it is, these are incredibly soft, snug, sprung shoes. Wel made & finished. But (despite being an advanced 'Stepper/ ex dancer) I weigh 19 stone and the Gel Supports in the outside rear edge of the heels cannot support the weight meaning even when walking there is a lateral rolling action through heel strike to toe. Standing in them can make them pronate outwards and diagonally backwards.

I noted some other reviewers couldn't put their finger on calf muscle annoyances when using this shoe. Matbe this, to a leser degree is their problem.

Sadly a cursory fitting (they felt comfy) saw me throw the boxes away to save space at home!
My brother (half my wieght) takes same shoe size and I fear is about to get a decent better behaving pair of trainers!

I purchased these trainers based on the review of others last week. I weigh in at 118kgs, so I need a performance trainer to take the load and offer comfort, security and support. You know how sometimes you have to 'break in' footwear? Not so with these trainers. I put them on, hit the treadmill for 40 minutes - on a slope, and it was as if I had been wearing them for months. They are remarkably comfortable. As is usual with trainers, I added one half size up to my size 10's and ordered the 10 1/2's ... Excellent! I am so impressed, I think I will treat myself to another pair.
