I've worn Asics 2130, 2140, 2150 and 2160. For some reason the 2160's never felt as comfortable than 2150's, which in turn didn't feel as comfortable as the 2130/2140 models. It has felt as if the toe section has got narrower and something about the arch support in the 2160's doesn't feel quite so good for me (I have two pairs, both the same).
Before I buy my spring marathon training and racing shoes, I was just wondering if anybody else has suggestions for alternative manufacturers and shoe series? Since I'm effectively taking a chance with yet another update to 2170's, I may as well take a chance with a different brand entirely. I might get pleasantly surprised.
I don't spend an absolute fortune on shoes if I can help it, generally 50-65 quid per pair when I can find them cheaper in sales/online.
I would have stuck with Asics 2130 for life if I could have the annual updating is a pain (I know it's not just Asics to blame for this).
