If you’re a light, quick runner who wants good-value, decently stable everyday size 14 shoes, look no further than ASICS Gel-Torrance Easy Running Shoe. This fashion-focused shoe features a Rearfoot GEL Cushioning System that absorbs shock during each impact and helps to stabilise the foot, ensuring you have a much smoother ride that puts less strain on your joints.
The lightweight design uses a mesh construction that gives less irritation and more breathability, keeping your feet cool and comfortable during tough training sessions.
Entry-level shoes are often reasonably lightweight because there’s not much to them, but the Torrance is amazingly so. It has the design of a day-in, day-out shoe and the weight of a good racer/trainer, and yet it’s not obviously flimsy.
It’s not a high-mileage shoe as you’d expect at this price. It isn’t built with the responsiveness of a performance trainer, but if you’re a light, quick runner who doesn’t need huge durability, you’ll find this a hard-to-beat basic model. And with its knit upper and sleek midsole, it looks good too.
