I ordered a pair of Asics 2130 running shoes from Zappos.com which turned out to be slightly short. Since I do more outdoor walking than running, I decided to order the Asics 2130 trail shoes instead, and was surprised to discover they are not the same shoe. The running 2130 is on the left, whereas the trail running 2130 is on the right.
The 2130 trail shoes are much wider than the Asics 2130 running shoes. The Asics 2130 trail shoes are much deeper than the running shoe version.
And the Asics 2130 running shoe is shorter than the same length 2130 trail running shoe.
Once again even though both shoes have the same name and outsole design, they are entirely different shoes. Make sure you thoroughly check the different version of the same shoe, because more and more, they will not be the same.
I am trying to find a running shoe that accomodates my orthotics; a shoe with a deep foot-bed. Do you have any recommendations? I have a pair of Saucony that are great, but it’s the first pair that has been good, and other Saucony shoes have not fit the same.
