too much cushioning for technical runners, looses responsiveness

The Asics GEL-Pulse 2 is a basic cushioned running shoe for runners with an underpronated or neutral gait. It uses an open mesh upper to allow for air flow, keeping the foot cool and dry with the aid of a sockliner. The midsole is made of SpEVA Material which offers some cushioning and keeps the shoe lighter. Part of the midsole is removed as part of the Trusstic system to control the way the shoe flexes. This ensures that the foot isn't twisted by the shoe as the runner moves from heel to toe. Impacts upon landing at the rearfoot are handled though the GEL Cushioning System.
