As far as arch support goes these are great stability running shoes! It’s also very comfortable for the most part. To start with the nylon mesh in the upper shoe is very breathable, which I consider very important on long runs. The midsoles are made of ethyl vinyl acetate (EVA) so you know it is light weight and has plenty of cushions. But just to sweeten the pot, it also includes the Asics Gel impact system. If you’ve never experienced the Asics Gel pack then you don’t know what you’re missing out on. I will complain about a lot of things with various shoes but this is one thing I’ll never whine about. Seriously comfortable. Anyway, back on track, the sole of the shoe has pretty decent grip and of course all the wonderful things that makes it a stability shoe.
The bad part? The heel has a tendency to slip. Nothing more annoying than having a shoe that rubs against the back of your ankle. Of course from what other people I’ve talked to and reviews I’ve read not everyone has this issue. In fact the majority of people have no complaints about this shoe. But if you choose to purchase this model I suggest you don’t waste any time testing them out, just in case you need to make a return.
Overall these are great stability running shoes. It’s crazy comfortable and does a great job of correcting your gait. All in all I’ll give it 4 stars. I know I’m knit picking with the heel slipping thing because I’m one of the few who got affected, but if you don’t have that problem then you’ll love these shoes.
