Don't know if this is any help, but I was wearing the same pair of Asics (for far too long), don't recall the model, but they were superb for accommodating my orthotics, never had a problem. Recently moved over to the Gel Kayano 19's and I cannot stress enough how many problems they have caused me. They actually have less mid foot support (lower arch), and seem to have replaced this with the plastic sole support which restricts natural foot movement. I would not recommend these at all. I'm not in search of a better pair!
Ha didn't even notice the date! Hopefully it gives someone up to date knowledge who searches on Google.
I have done quite a few gait analysis over the past few years. When someone comes to me with Orthotics I will always recommend a Neutral shoe , if the orthotics are correct they should be doing the work. The best shoes i find with orthotics are Brooks Glycerin, Asics Gel Nimbus and Mizuno Wave Rider
