Yup, it's also better than my Adidas Adistar Cushion esp. when I go for long runs!

Just got the new version Asics Cumulus today. Put one landreth and Cumulus on each feet to feel the difference. Chose the Cumulus for cushiony feel all round. Will put it to the test soon.

Tested my new Asics Cumulus VII for today's SgRunners' 21km run. Passed the test with flying colours. Very cushiony feel and does not feel clumsy at all.

U overpronate? Can see that your choice are all stability or motion control range....if u r flat-footed or overpronate...maybe GT2100 not the best choice....it is under stability cushioned shoe...not motion control

yup i overpronate. From the asisc website they shown GT2100 for moderarte overpronators. From the pic of my foot (backview) compared to the pics on various websites, can guess mine is a moderate case.

Also from the wetfoot test, which l wet my foot and press step on newspapers. The footprint shows outline of flatfoot but the area at the arch area is not that wet compared to the ball and heel. So l guess mine is moderate over-pronate. That time l also dont know where to ask for help as l have not found this forum, also most shop-keepers cant give me good advices as they only know which model for flatfoot and thats all. So thats why l gamble for GT2100.

Now if its not the best choice also bo-pian already.

I will not conclude that it is due to the shoe...it might due to other reasons also like the way ur foot land, the terrain u run on, the intensity and frequency that u run per week...bla bla bla

read thru the thread on shin splint under injuries and discuss there maybe

You may wish to try out the new Speed Star. It is built for speed and prevention of blister. I wore that for NTU ultra marathon and after 2 marathons, I was still blister free.

i just went to the new balance tech centre to purchase a new pair of running shoes.

I guess those shoes that was mentioned are meant for people with normal or high arch. Recommended shoe for flat flooters would be
my new shoe: NB 1221(wide and with motion control/stability element)

i've tried shoes like kayano(good stability but too narrow for me)

I like Light performance shoes like the NB900 and the DStrainer, but for those who are flat foot and thinking of using this as a LONG distance running shoe, u better think twice.

But for those who still dunno what feet u r having,
try the tech centre, at least there's one guy who bother to ask u to remove ur footwear, take a good glance at your feet, measure ur feet and give u the recommended shoe and SIZE.

i think that should be the case if we do want to be serious in sports, since many of us are not expert. At least i dun feel pain in paying a shoe costing $202(before 40% discount)

consider a visit there, at least i am impress with the sales person that sold me this shoe. and the saddest thing is that i can only buy 3 out of their many designs since i am a flat footer.

I think taz understand flat footers quite well, we need a firmer and more durable in sole due to motion of the flat footers. so...
just visit the NB TECH CENTRE(i'm not a member of the company but i've spend quite a bit in shop)

my ex-shoes are:
asics Kayano
asics cumulus
adidas speedstar
