I usually don't put more money than 100 euros in running shoes. For these pricey gel quantum 360 4, i got a nice deal, the second pair of shoes at 80% off. When i tried them at the asics shop, they felt great. Cushioning is important when you run a lot and are not light (i weigh 85 kg). Asics is usually an excellent and my favourite brand for running, and i ve never been disappointed until this product. When i buy a pricey Asics, i have some expectations. After 18km of in wood running, my knees are sore. Really disappointed. Be careful if you choose this product. Mine was made in Vietnam. Coudln't find any similar comment on the internet.
