Asics Gel 1120
This is a smooth, stable and cushioned shoe at a keen price.

Our Review

Asics's 1100 series is the little brother of the GT-2100 range, inheriting their older features. For this update, the 1120 now has a full-length SpEva midsole. (The 1110 simply had a forefoot insert of this lighter, more durable EVA foam.) It has a smaller medial post than the new GT-2120, ...  Continue reading

I wear custom orthotics, but found a neutral shoe caused me problems, so switched to these and they've been great! Continue reading...
If you are looking for a good all round shoe for a mild over pronator then you can't go wrong with the 1120. Continue reading...


Boring I know but which are the best long distance socks out there on the market?

Hi Kev, there was a recent thread on this, though I am having trouble locating it. Personally I use Thorlos and have never had a blister.

I've tried Aldi's crane socks,hilly mono skins,sky runner,1000 mile but my two favourite makes (which I've recently discovered) are Thorlos and running bear.They are both comfortable and I haven't had any blisters since using either makes.

Another big thumbs up for Thorlos from me.

Falke RU3s.

Think I may have to invest in some of these Thorlos socks - I get a recurring blister in the same place after every long run wearing Nike dri-fit socks! So annoying!

Posted: 05/10/2007 at 21:56

Falke RU3 or 4

Depends on which shoes I'm wearing

I seem to wear just about any sock.  I prefer the thin cycling style socks though - they seem the best.

I'm a big fan of Aldi's Crane socks too, but they never seem to have them in when I look ny more - you have to be there on the exact day they appear to get them. Any idea if you can get them elsewhere, or is Crane their own brand?

Sock Thread!

I'm with Sean G and B on this one...Thorlos (mini-crew) are the best socks (IMHO) and i've tried a few over the years.Wish i had a £1 for every time i've said that...

Aha - will keep an eye open. Thanks

X-Socks Rock!

1000mile Tri socks are the thinnest and most comfy. Like running with the freedom of no socks but the blister protection of lots of sock.

I'm loving the x-socks sky run socks. Never yet had a hot spot, let alone a blister! 2 marathons, 1 Ironman (cycling as well!) and the thames ultra (50 miler), among many miles of training.

But we all have different feet and gaits, so whatever works for you. It's totally personal.

It's thin 1000mile ancle socks for me.

I love Smart wool socks, medium cushioning - marathon distance tested

Best anti-blister socks I've come across are Wright Socks.
