For the last 6 months or so I have ran in Asics 2070's.
I got on with them well, but felt I could do with a little more cushioning. I went into Northern Runner the day before the GNR, and tried 5 different shoes on.
There were two Saucony brands, the Brooks Beast, the Asics 2070, and the Asics Koji.
I wanted the Beast but they didn't have them in my size, so I bought the Koji which felt equally as comfortable.
However, I went for a run in them yesterday and was not impressed at all. It was my first run after the GNR (which was my first half), and my legs felt dead and heavy.
The shoes felt as though I was running with two planks of wood strapped to my feet.No power from them at all, and extremely stiff.
Now, obviously the issue is that I don't know how much of this is the fault of the shoe, and how much is the fault of the after effects of the GNR.
I expected the motion control shoes to feel different, but this is just horrible.
I'll give them two weeks (6-8 runs) and see how I get on. If no better, then I'll buy a new pair of 2070's.
They are noticably heavier (almost twice the weight) of my old shoe, so that'll take some getting use to as well.
