ASICS GT-2000 v9
[Looking for the latest version? The women's ASICS GT-2000 v10 is now available.]
The women's ASICS GT-2000 9 is a lightweight stability shoe built for a smooth ride.
ASICS updated the GT-2000 9 with a fresh, clean look but kept the stability features that runners rely on. The ASICS Dynamic DuoMax system creates a stable platform over the life of the shoe, and the Trusstic system mitigates twisting for a more consistent transition.
Even with the stability technology, though, ASICS maintained a light weight. The men’s GT-2000 9 weighs 9.9 oz and the women’s model weighs 7.8 oz, making the shoe versatile for a range of different running workouts.
In the ASICS GT-2000 9 review, Fleet Feet runners praised the shoe’s light weight and smooth feel, saying it creates a confident ride for new runners and experienced marathoners alike.

The shoe is light and supportive. I find that it feels like there is less cushion under the toe, but I've gotten used to that. The heel feels more cushioned under the heel, which is what I need because have chronic shin splints. I can't run much but I frequently walk 5 miles at a fast pace and these have been great and I haven't experienced pain in these. (I've had them about 2 months and wear them about 5 days/week.) There was no really "break in" period, which was really nice. Also, in terms of fit, I'd say it's a normal fit, if not it runs slightly small. I usually wear a 7-7.5, so I bought a 7.5, but definitely felt it was a bit snug at first (I considered returning it for an 8). I decided to give it a few weeks though and about a month in, it seemed to have stretched enough to be totally comfortable. Also, as a heads up, the "regular" width (which I got) is quite narrow. That works for my feet, but if your feet aren't narrow, be sure to get a wide fit! Overall - 5/5 these shoes are great for me!
I am recovery from foot surgery, my doctor recommended a good running shoes to help with my recovery, I can walk if needed all day with my new shoes.
