If you checked out my blog resolutions post you will remember I am going to run a 10K this year. I’ve done many races but took a break after having my two kids. Then I got back into running last summer and I got a new pair of shoes for Mother’s Day from my hubby and kids! Of course they wouldn’t have went with any other choice than Asics! They know me too well! I laced those hot pink, cushy sole babies up and hit the pavement!
If you do races, take a minute to look around at the ground. You will see about 70% of the runners are wearing Asics. There is something to be said about this. These shoes are comfortable, designed well, and fashionable! Hands down, they are awesome!
I have tried other brands of running shoes, but once I tried this brand, it is the only one I will wear.

I started wearing Asics back in 2008. A marathon running co-worker recommended them and I have never raced back. (Looked back, ha ha)
What you will get… They have a gel system that really helps absorbs shock. They have different styles but I prefer the gel. This makes your runs much more comfortable. If you are getting up there in age, like me, they also help out the old knees!
Asics range in price from $40 to upwards of $100. However, unlike other brands of running shoes, the lower priced shoes are still very good quality. I have noticed the more popular colors tend to cost more. So if you are not looking for workout fashion, you can score a pair of Asics for around $40 and if you live in a nice climate and run outside all year, $40 is a bargain for a yearly fitness plan.
These comfy shoes come in different styles and colors. They have trail running shoes, cross- trainers and running shoes. There are many stylish choices and colors and they range in price. Be ready to spend a bit more for more popular colors. Here are some styles I have found on Amazon that have between a 4-4/12 star rating:
- ASICS Women’s Gel Kayano 22 Running Shoe, Indigo Blue/Pink Glow/Pistachio, 9 M US
- ASICS Women’s Gel-venture 5 Running Shoe, Titanium/Pistachio/Pink Glow, 7.5 M US
- ASICS Women’s Gel-Contend 3 Running Shoe, Steel Grey/Safety Yellow/Hot Pink, 8 M US
- ASICS Men’s Gel Venture 5 Running Shoe, Black/Onyx/Charcoal, 13 4E US
- ASICS Men’s Gel Kayano 22 Running Shoe, Charcoal/Silver/Lime, 12 M US
Tip: Keep your eyes opened for sales or coupons at Kohls, Marshalls or Amazon.
I highly recommend these running shoes and remember running outside is one of my best frugal fitness tips. Wearing a good pair of shoes, that are also a good value…priceless!
