Bouncier sockliner and reduced overlays
 
Narrow forefoot

What's new? Asics has enhanced its top-end stability shoe by focusing on fit and feel. The midsole is redesigned to encourage a more efficient gait, while a bouncier sockliner, asymmetrical lacing and reduced overlays are designed to offer a more comfortable ride.   

We say While cushioning and support were praised, the foot-hugging fit divided our testers: some loved the snug 'slipper-like' feel, while others found the forefoot too narrow. But if these 'agree' with your feet, this is a competent shoe well-matched to heavier overpronators. 

Wear testers say "Plenty of forefoot cushioning but the fit was a little tight in the toe area." Richard Berry
