The ASICS Gel-Neo 33.20 is cool for sure. We like the colors and the overall look. As always we're going to suggest your Specialty Running Store if you have one. We found not all of them brought in this model, although most Specialty Stores carry the ASICS brand. On pricing the suggested retail is $100. We found them on East Bay for $89.99, Roadrunners $99.99 and Amazon for $80.58. Finishline carries the Gel-Lyte 33. for $89.99
The second round of the the Gel-Neo has set the tone for the model: stability and support for mid-mileage running. While they are light, their function is less about a performance feel and more about moving with the foot.
The upper is mesh and synthetic overlays partially destructured - the rearfoot has little structure in the heel counter, and the smooth no-sew overlays provide just enough support to keep the shoe secure. The midsole is little changed from the original, quality foam with a second density under the medial side, with vertical sidewall flex groves allowing the foot to flex the sole while it moves. The outersole is AHAR and blown rubber decoupled for flexibility. Overall the shoe offers good comfort, but is not as plush as other ASICS shoes making it best suited to low or moderate mileage.
“Great weight to cushion ratio, not too heavy with cushion it has, soft, comfortable shoe. I do notice a little more wear and tear in my calves from the long runs, but for mid-mileage runs (6-8 miles) they do well.”
