This is the 1st time I have seen this shoe and I am underwhelmed.
One of the things I like most about many Asics running shoes is that they are generally well structured and stable which makes them a perfect choice for many runners. The Gel Frantic on the other hand is anything but. It strikes me as a Nike Shox wannabee in design without any of the rigidity associated with many of the Shox shoes. This shoe rolls up like a ball with very little effort and anyone who pronates at all would be ill-served by this flexible shoe.
In summary, I would probably never recommend this shoe for a serious runner, especially one having foot, knee or iliotibial band pain.
