Asics GEL 1150 Review
The 1100 series from Asics has always been a best buy for budget-minded runners. It is a moderate stability shoe that works for a wide variety of runners. Every update, it benefits from technology advances developed for its more pricey siblings. This model features a retooled upper with better materials and an updated look that makes this budget runner look like an upscale model. The midsole is also reworked and now offers a great blend of cushioning and stability. At only 11oz., the 1150 is even rather light weight compared to other models in its segment.
Our testers, normally treated to $140 techno-marvels, were shocked at how well the 1150 performed. One tester took these on a 15-mile weekend endurance run right out of the box, with no issues. The Asics GEL 1150 is available now and retails for $85. For more information, visit asicsamerica.com.
