1. I just received my third pair of GT 2140
down here in Melbourne, Australia. This makes them my sixth
pair of Asics. The World Tour Classics are just ageless,
comfy, durable, and presentable casually and for business
and travel and I just hope they never put them off the
stocklist. This last pair I am hiding away and keeping them
new just in case! I honestly have never worn a pair of them.
I still wear them all, some are really scuffy but still very
comfortable. Shoebuy took only a few days to get my shoes
down here at very competitive prices. An excellent service.
2. Shoe is as advertised. I bought this shoe for walking and
it did require a break-in period because one of my feet have
unusual bumps and contours. The insole should be about 1/8
inch thicker-that would be very helpful, as inserts are too
thick. The neck of the shoe is too high as it rubs on and
forward of the ankle. I bought Nubuck and it stains easily,
even from water drops, and the water marks cannot be
removed. I will not buy it again. I wish the shoe were made
in a smooth leather as I do not like tumbled leather. I wear
this sneaker For walking as much as 5 miles or more at a time.
3. They have been a steady winner for me for many years. I
have found it to be quite different, and much, much better
than Rockport's standard walking shoe--well worth the extra
cost. They are very comfortable for walking long distances
(though not hiking on rough terrain). I am on my feet for
long stretches when lecturing, and they are the only shoes
which prevent me from getting a backache. I am overweight
and they provide plenty of support. They are rugged, but
shine up nicely enough to wear to the office (though not for
formal occasions or business deals).
4. This is a well made, good looking tan suede for casual
wear, though looks a little like a work shoe. My feet are a
bit arthritic, and I can get gout attacks and pain if a shoe
is tight or too thin soled to cushion shocks. They have good
depth and width, provides solid support, can be laced to
vary the snugness, and cushions against shock. The steel
shank restricts excess flexion. A terrific shoe for me. I
have four pair in different colors, and hardly wear anything
else. No more pain for me.
