Shoe Review – Asics GT-2140 vs. Asics GT-2150

Asics just debuted their GT-2150 model and I am happy to report it is very similar to the GT-2140 https://drshoe.wordpress.com/2009/01/13/asics-2140-has-arrived/

I am a huge fan of this series as it is one of the few shoes that works for the narrow foot.  Although the GT-2150 model is ever so slightly wider than the GT-2140, I don’t think this will be a problem for most feet.

All in all, the 2100 series remains one of my favorite running shoes and I will continue to recommend it for many of my runners feet.

  1. I just purchased my second pair of 2140s. I’ve been very happy with this series as well, being that I have a narrow foot.

    I’ll switch to the 2150s when I stop finding 2140s on sale. 🙂

  2. I just switched from new balance to the 2150. Hoping that they are as good as everyone says.

  3. I have been running in the GT2140 for 2 years now and I just bought a of the GT2150. They feel great but I have noticed my left knee is hurting after 10+ miles. The fit is a little different, it is a little tighter and the arch is a little higher

    • My findings actually show a slightly wider last than Asics 2140 which would allow more side to side motion of the foot, in turn affecting the knees. Because the difference are minimal however, I would continue running in the 2150’s only keep the mileage lower for the first few weeks and see if the knee pain doesn’t just go away.

  4. have worn 2120, 2130, 2140 for 3 years of running. now 2 weeks into my 2150’s I have pulled both calf muscles running my usual easy 5km. not impressed so far, 2150’s seem rigid and tight
