Asics Gel Foundation 10 is similar to version 9 in that it is highly structured and torsionally stable, with a firm heel counter and an inflexible forefoot.
The differences between version 10 and version 9 have to do with volume. Version 9 was available in narrow, whereas version 10 isn’t. Version 9 was also more shallow than version 10 which will affect those runners who choose this shoe based on volume.
For all other runners, as the following video shows — this remains a great shoe.
I am constantly amazed when patients come into my busy sports medicine practice with pain from a sprain or strain, who — because they can walk — assume nothing could be broken or seriously injured.
Just today, I treated a torn plantar fascia, a heel fracture, a sesamoid fracture and a metatarsal fracture — and every single one of those patients believed they were suffering from nothing more than a simple sprain.
I talk about this in the following video and hope that — after watching — whether you twist your ankle, stub your toe or even just plant your foot the wrong way and it continues to hurt or swell, you’ll seek treatment right away.
