Alistair Cameron, President and CEO of Asics Europe B.V said, “Asics is proud to receive this award from the readers of Runner’s World. The Gel Landreth has always been a popular shoe, winning best update in Runner’s World’s Autumn Winter 2011 Shoe Guide and the award demonstrates Asics really is the runner’s choice.”

Runner’s World readers added, “We particularly love the reduced weight, asymmetrical lacing and lower profiled midsole amid a myriad of other impressive tweaks. The Gel Landreth 7 is a shoe with a lot of bang for its buck.”
