Long Term Review
October 2, 2012
The GEL Frantic series is hard to place in the ASICS line. I can't tell if it is more of a running or fashion shoe, fairly lightweight, and are more cushioned than they appear but not nearly what you would call soft. The outside of the shoe actually covers the foam cushioning in the front giving the appearance of little to no cushion. They breath well and feel like a thick sock when worn (Comfortable and snug). I did run in these for several months (short distance runs 5K x 3 times a week) and they held up well. The heel seems a bit high as well which is great for those who need extra stability there.
Very Comfortable for Everyday use
Cons:A bit heavy
Higher than usual heel rise.
