ASICS GEL-Persue Review

Before I get started in talking about these awesome new shoes that I have been using for about a month I want to thank all of you for taking the time to read and comment on our story yesterday.  It was clearly the hardest post I had ever written and one I wrote quite some time ago that just sat in my draft folder!  In any ever we are so excited about our miracle coming early next year!

Now onto one of my addictions and loves… running shoes!  The Hubs and I are often having conversations about the amount of pairs that I have but I’m sure many of you agree that you just can’t have ONE pair of running shoes!!  Right!??!  Don’t get me wrong, I do recycle and get rid of them but I do have quite collection.

In my running “life”  I have gone from running only in Adidas to expanding to Mizzuno and now I have found a new love!!

Introducing the new GEL-Pursue™ designed for the neutral runner who desires a more responsive ride. Engineered with technical features like Guidance Trusstic™ and Guidance Line® to provide a smooth ride and superior comfort. The Heel Clutching System™ and Discrete Eyelet construction hugs the foot while the sleek FluidRide™ midsole allows runners to hug the road. Sure to delight mild underpronators to mild overpronators over any distance.

The ASICS Gel-Persue have been amazing!!  I was given the chance to try them out and they did not disappoint! They are incredibly light weight and it took no time at all to break in!  I always seem to get at least one blister at some point in the initial break in and this was NOT the case the ASICS.  Having never run in ASICS before I didn’t know what to expect but have been blown away!!  IMG_1395.JPGI’ve taken them out on long walks, runs both inside and outside and they are just so comfortable!

IMG_1228-0 ASICS GEL-Pursue has been awarded “Best Debut Shoe” this month in the Shoe Guide issue of Runner’s World. Here’s what Runner’s World had to say about the GEL-Pursue,

“A new shoe from ASICS delivering equal parts cushioning and stability in a package that rides slightly lower to the ground. The Pursue™ delivers a good dose of stability via a segmented crash pad in the heel and a plastic shank in the midfoot.”

As someone who runs in a neutral shoe the Pursue was perfect!!  Even with a growing belly I felt stable on my feet and great when I run!

I am excited that I will be able to continue to  use these shoes throughout my pregnancy and hope to continue to run and jog as long as I can!!

    I’m typically a Gel-Nimbus girl. I wonder how these compare to those? They sound great!

  2. So wait…are they a stability shoe or a neutral? You said you were a neutral but the description says stability. I absolutely LOVE my Asics and am so glad I switched!
