The best-selling technical running shoe enters the back half of its second decade with a plan: Be consistent. The design stays as near as possible to previous versions, only tinkering with improvements to materials, especially those at the top of ASICS’ impressive line. The similarity with the 2140 extends from the upper, with minor adjustments in the overlays, lowered ankle collar for better fit, to the midsole, through to the shank and outersole.
The great cushioning and stable ride are well dialed-in, providing long-time users what they expect: a well-protected, securely delivered run. Runners with stability needs should seek out the GT-2150 and give it a test run.
Testers: “Snug, comfy and feels good. Cushioning is great; my feet are fine even after a 12-mile run. They seem a little lighter than their predeces- sor: keep what works and fix the little things.”
