It has been almost three months since I received brand new kicks from Asics South Africa. Since then, I have literally been gliding on the road in the Asics Gel Pulse 9. The shoes have so far helped me to effortlessly hit two personal 5k bests. I have covered a distance of 45kilometres thus far in these shoes and now feel that at this point, I can share with you a thorough review of Asics Gel Pulse 9. If I were asked on the spot to summarise my experience with the Asics Gel Pulse 9, I would say that it is an affordable, practical, beautifully lightweight and comfortable shoe built for short to medium distances runs. Now, let’s get into a detailed Asics Gel Pulse 9 running shoes review.
A wise person once said, “Running is nothing more than a series of arguments between the part of your brain that wants to stop and the part that wants to keep going,” and they were absolutely right! You have to win a few arguments with yourself in order to start running. Once you are over that hurdle and are 100% into this thing called running, you will literally run into another obstacle at some point – the weather. Running in extreme heat or cold is a battle on its own and if you want to win that battle too, you need to have the best running gear for summer or winter.
