Asics Gel Quantum 180 Review

Asics Gel Quantum 180 has 180 degrees of the famous GEL cushioning, making it a fine choice for all day wear. This running shoe features seamless uppers of a knit mesh that is reminiscent of Nike's Flyknit - in other words it's breathable light and good looking! Definitely a step up for Asics. Padded tongue and collar help prevent pressure and sliding. The heel footprint is wide and has a heel counter for stability and direction. Full length Trusstic System delivers energy return with each step, and a light Solyte midsole provides cushioning.

The Asics Gel Quantum 180 is really quite flexible and responsive, and it's no slouch in the cushion department either. It feels like it can do anything, and is kind of a best all around shoe. The one thing our runners report is that it is a bit heavier than they expected. It is an odd cushion/weight ratio, being more of a stability daily trainers. It's so responsive but its weight class prevents it from being a top choice for a speed trainer. The Asics Gel Quantum 180 could be a great shoe for intervals. It's an unconventional combination of features, and the marketing tagwords like "powerhouse performance" and "strategically placed support" from Asics lead us to believe that they designed this shoe with heavier runners in mind. Given the dense cushioning and wide footprint, this would be a great trainer for big and tall runners.
