Asics Gel DS Trainer 20 running shoes review
Any shoe that reaches its 20th incarnation must be doing something right. Longevity certainly breeds confidence, reflected in the lively orange trim and luminescent yellow laces.
Yes, this is a shoe that looks fast. It features a midsole post (Propulsion Trussic, in Asics talk), that adds stability, while gel cushioning in the front and rear increases comfort.
A heel counter on the outside of the shoe adds to the stable feel. All in all, it’s a shoe packed with well-thought-out features that elicits a good ride.
The only issue is the impressive and deep feature line-up, coupled with its 297g weight, makes it feel more of a training shoe than an out-and-out racer.
Verdict: Fine shoe and provides a good ride, though more of a trainer than a racer, 83%
