ASICS Gel Landreth


ASICS GEL-Landreth

Although designed as a replacement for the Praleus, the new GEL-Landreth actually has more in common with the ASICS GT-2090. The appearance and materials of the two are similar throughout, but the Landreth sports a single-density midsole because it is designed for neutral-gaited runners. The upper’s design and materials have given the Landreth a lightweight feel, though it is on the heavy end of the lightweight range. One need not be a whippet or an ultra-efficient runner to benefit from this shoe, even for daily training. It is appropriate for tempo runs and faster paced running.
