I and members of the running club I belong too have all noticed the drop off in Asics running shoes over the last year or so. Still a great shoe otherwise regarding fit, out of the box and running comfort, look etc but the inner heel mesh has started to wear very quickly to the point of then making the shoe prone to cause blisters where the plastic heel cup then protrudes. We are now all trying a different pair of shoes in parallel for a comparison and depending on the results, unless Asics get there act together, will be permanently swapping our shoes provider for 2018 (which would be a great shame as I have loved this manufacturers shoes for over 20 years!)
Reason of review: Bad quality.
Monetary Loss: $200.
Preferred solution: Let the company propose a solution.
I liked: Mail order service, Use to be my and others go to running shoe, Were great shoes.
I didn't like: Cheapening of product quality.
