Asics Gel-Blur 33 2.0

10.5 oz.; 8.5 oz.
$85, Asicsamerica.com

Fit: The interior is comfortable and soft with a slightly wider fit than most shoes, especially in the toe box. It’s not loose or sloppy, but it’s not as locked-down tight in the heel or mid-foot as some of the other models tested.

Feel: This “cushioned yet responsive” neutral trainer is fairly flexible and soft throughout. It is also moderately high off the ground with a robust heel-toe drop of 11mm that is well suited to heel strikers and runners acclimating to minimalist shoes.

Ride: The Blur 33 offers a bit more support than most lighter cushioned trainers. “It’s a good choice for someone who wants a flexible, lightweight shoe but needs more support than some of these options provide,” said one tester.
