The Asics brand is a Japanese owned corporation which produces a lot of different kinds of Asics runners from the cumulus to the nimbus to the GT and the stability Kayano. They have different weights and materials but overall they are considered light weight runners. The Asics “means “healthy mind in a healthy body”.
This is why the company mostly produces shoes that are actually for physical activities such as running. There is a wide range of shoes that are under this brand and is well known around the world because of the comfort and stability and the gel technology that it is made with. There are people who would go for brands but it is very important to remember that there are other things to be considered before getting a new pair.
Paying more would not mean that it is healthy for you or the person who will use the shoe. It is still important to know what the needs of the person are. There are things like needing support for the arches of the feet. There are the need for more padding to the heel and or the forefoot for shock absorption. It is important to know the activities because that will decide what kind of shoe is needed. It is also important to know if what you are buying is for activities like running, jogging or walking or if the activities will involve court sports. There are differences when it comes to these because the supports for running, jogging or walking are mostly seen on the forefoot and the heel. On the other hand, court sports would need a shoe that has lateral support because with court sports you just do not go forward or backward but you also do move laterally or sideways. If the shoe does not have support for this kind of activity, there is a risk of injury.
It is better to go into a specialty store like a running shoe store so that they would be able to assess and give you the correct kind of shoe that is needed. It is very important to have the right shoe fitted because having a wrong sized shoe will open you up for risk of injury.
Asics runners would have the support and comfort that a runner is looking for in running shoes. There are different kinds of Asics runners one would just have to consider the features because each kind has a different feature from the others. There are kinds that are newer but not better than the type before it. There are some which were made to have more improvement than their predecessors.
