Asics GT 1000.8 Men
Big G Says…
There is little to add to the GT1000.7 review. The 2 models are almost identical....the GT1000.8 has a slightly more padded heel collar and tongue and a softer inner sole for a more comfortable upper and underfoot sensation. The engineered mesh is basically a cosmetic up-date ...otherwise the meat and potato structure of the shoe remains unchanged.
It is still of course, great value for runners/walkers who need mild medial support, but probably should be avoided by hardcore mileage maniacs who should be looking at a better quality model such as the GT2000.8 or Kayano 26.
The price has not changed much over the last few years and remains an excellent entry-level stability shoe for the more casual runner and walker.
