Long time listener, 1st time poster.
I have ran 2 marathons & a few shorter distance races over the last 3 years, using Asics Gel - 1170's. These were the recommended shoe by Asics after I paid the £30 to have my feet analysed in stoire.
I understand they have now discontinued this model & have replaced with the GT-1000? This may have happened sometime ago, the last time I bought runenrs was around a year ago.
First query, is someone able to confirm that this is indeed the replacement for the 1170. I'd speak to someone from Asics but I'm not particularly near an Asics store.
Secondly, is the shoe different enough for it to be a risk in just mail ordering them (as opposed to heading to the store to try them 1st). I appreciate there are improvements but is it a much different fit?
Thanks in advance,
