Asics Gel -1150 running shoes is a beauty. When I tried them on at first I was laughing but to run in them was a different story- they felt tight and uncomfortable. I am not sure why .
They are the same size as my Asics Gel- 2l50 running shoes, but the fit is not the same.
Even if the fit was right I would not dare to run a marathon in these because I would feel every lump and bump on the ground. For me personally they are too light in weight. I could probably run 6 miles maxium in a race.
To be honest I have not worn them for months because of the discomfort, but I am going to try and wear them again.
I suppose one could easily mistake them for one of my Saucony running shoes.
Apparently Asics Gel-1150 weighs 10.9 ounces and Asics Gel-2l50 weighs 11.7 ounces
(half an ounce lighter than the previous model). You live and you learn!
There were many runners wearing their Asics Gel-ll50 yesterday at Brooks Last Friday of the Month-
25 June. I did not see any runners wearing their 'Vibram five fingers'.
Folks I found the Asics Representative for UK and Ireland His name is Mr. Tom Orange, also
the sixth member of the famous Asics pro team (the one with his hands folded). His nickname is the product expert.

I'm afraid we've had a complaint regarding your language in your post on the following thread: http://www.runnersworld.co.uk/forum/forummessages/mps/dt/4/UTN/161331. Here at RW we do generally try to let the forums bubble along without too much interference, but we have to appreciate that some forumites have different tolerance levels to others when it comes to swearing. I'd also like to gently remind you that although differences of opinion on the runnersworld.co.uk forum are to be expected, we do not tolerate bullying. I've therefore deleted that particular post - please do get in touch if you have any questions.
Come on who complained? - all I asked was for some one to translate all the waffle on this thread into English
Wasnt me, I cant remember what you said!
Karen ... wjhy have you changed..............if the shoe shop had advised you that your over pronation has now reduced and therefore you needed a different type of shoe...............then why don't you go back to the shop and explain your problems to them........
If you just changed type of shoe because you fancied a different number or colour then you can't complain if you get pain when running......carry on and you are likley to get injured...........
If you read the articles on these things......why have you just changed??????

Blow me down with a feather, there's alot of runners who own a pair of Asics Gel ll50. I can't stop myself looking at runners feet. But on the other hand there's a hell of a lot runners who own the Asics Gel 2000 series. Asics claims that their Asis Gel 2000 series is their best running shoes. My Saucony running shoes are definitely much more comfortable than my Ascis Gel ll50.
Why would you wear your brand new Ascis Gel ll50 on a trail run? A young boy did so in Joydens Wood 5k. I bet it is now completely black. My pair is clean and is as 'White as Snow',
I wore my Ascis Gel 1150 again and they don't feel so bad, I think my rubber feet have now adjusted to them.
I have never owned a pair of of Asics Gel Kayano, I have seen them in the running shops they appear more bulky and heavier than the Asic Gel -1150 which is light and airey on the feet. Also it is much cheaper than Asics Gel Kayano- so I think the answer to your question is yes it is less durable.
