I weigh about 12st 7lbs, give or take 2 or 3 pounds, and have been running for over 30 years; completing 32 full marathon races in that time.
I have used a variety of different makes and models of running shoes in that time but, for the last good few years, I have been a big fan of the Asics 2000 series and have had many of the models. Apart from the 2050 which caused blisters in my arches, I have been pleased with the shoes but I have noticed that, on the last few models, the heels where my foot hits the ground are wearing out far, far quicker than they used to and should do. Have others in this forum noticed this? By about 250 or so miles, the rubber on the outside of the heels has almost worn away down to the next level. This seems to be pee-poor value from a top manufacturer.
I have bought and tried using the old-fashioned Shoe Goo on the heels but only get about 20 or so miles from each application before I have to apply some more. Apart from being messy and difficult to apply, this adds to the cost of my running and really bugs me.
Are there any decent running shoes out there where the heel rubber gives better value? I could end up running races in my wellington boots if I can't sort this out !
