4 user reviews of Asics Gel DS Trainer 13 See all
Has anyone on the forum tried the new Bandito's? I think they are a replacement for the DS Racer but they look to be mid-way between the DS Racer and the DS Trainer. I am looking for something to replace my beloved DS 10's.
Sweatshop stock them...
Any comments welcome.

We got them in stock yesterday, and its slightly heavier than the DSR, but loads lighter than DST, Very comfortable, good level of support, and seems to be some cushioned in the heel than the DSR. Major difference though is (in a similar way to Nike Marathoner) is the 360 degree "ventilation". What this effectively means is that there are holes (yes, HOLES) in the sole of the shoe. Thus allowing for extra "cooling", it also means that if you wanna run through puddles, you're gonna get wet feet!! Mind you, I've got the Marathoners, and its never been a problem. I think they'll be a valuable addition to the Asics range.

Does anyone know what the sizing is like with the Bandito. I've run in the DS Trainers for the past 2-3 years and have always had to take a size 11, whereas I had a pair of Kayanos on the go this time last year which were a size 10.
Given that the Banditos are also a lean shoe (=snug fit) I'm wondering if I will have to stick to an 11. Any thoughts very much appreciated, so that I can grab a pair asap!
