Exactly, lacing does not sort the issue, even after sending a pair back to Asics for them to inspect they suggested and new lacing method, which helped but still same problems just a little later. Yes I would say there is an issue Kayanos 18, have googled it an we are not alone.
Gave the Salvations a 6 mile bash today and they fit better but are much harder, so will have to give them a longer run later this week and see whats what.
I suppose I have to wait for 2013 shoes to come in late Jan/Feb as sweatshop seems to have very few shoes my size (9) so I ended up with Salvations. All they seem to have was clearance lines in odd sizes. Bad timing on my side i suppose. thanks all
yes I have tightened the shoes right up using the method suggested by Asics directly. I think fundamently the shoes are not the right size/fit so I am having to really over tigheten them and even that is not stopping my foot from moving. I have been wearing a thicker sock also.
Will give the salvations a bash shortly. Maybe they will do what they say !
Hi, thanks for responding. I dont remember exactly, it was a Gel and I ran those trainers many miles without any issues. Its all started moving to Kayano's, even after Sweatshop used their treadmil/camera & fitting service.
Am going to give the Salvations a go today. Just felt that January is not the best time of year to get traininer as all the new ranges seem to be coming in over late Jan/Feb once they have cleared all the 2012 stock. So maybe I am just getting offered what is left and I should go back in March when there is the best choice to find one that fits ?
I was wondering if there are any people out there who are having size problems with their trainers. I have been using Asics for many years and last year switched to Kayano 18's. During last year i went through 3 pairs, a couple were replaced by Asics direct. The back of the heal inside is wearing out due to foot movement. Asics gave me new lace up method which helped but still i am wearing them out. Went to sweatshop 2 weeks ago and they advised I am running a half size too big (even after they fitted me this size in Jan last year), so took me down a half size to 8.5 on the new Kayano 19's, now my right foot is hitting the end after I am warmed up. Went back after a couple of runs and they tried various sizes and we ended up with Adidas Salvation 2 size 9.5. I got the feeling they are trying to clear last years stock and all the new 2013 running shoes are coming in the next few weeks. My problem is I have 3 half's coming in 4/7/10 weeks so need to get this sorted now. Any suggestions ?
