2010 Winter Running Shoe Review Homepage

If you were told to pack one pair of running shoes for a run in a mystery destination, not knowing the weather, surface or distance, this shoe would be a reasonable choice—especially if you have a higher-volume foot and value a little extra space in the shoe, both rear and aft. Testers appreciated the cushioning qualities and stability that made for a measured bounciness with a smooth heel-to-toe transition on road and trail alike. As a hybrid trail/road shoe that uses an element-proof Adrenaline road upper, the ASR weds the comfort and performance of the Adrenaline line with a water-resistant upper and moderately aggressive outsole.
