Asics Gel Tiger Paw £55


Posted: 15 June 2000

Weight 225g
Evaluation If you’re a relatively efficient runner who wants a simple 10K racing shoe, the Tiger Paw will do fine. It would also be good for slightly less efficient runners over shorter distances – though, as with nearly all sub-250g racing shoes, it’s not a model for anyone with genuine stability problems. It’s built on a fairly straight last, so the ride is geared just as much towards comfort as speed; the cushioning is fairly soft; and the ride is pretty smooth. The upper is light and airy, too. There’s no wow factor here: it’s just a nice-fitting, acceptably light racer. There are models with smoother rides, faster feels and better midfoot stability (though not all in the same shoe), but the Tiger Paw is fine as an all-rounder.
