The Asics GlideRide Mens Running Shoe lets you run longer while expending less energy. GUIDESOLE™ technology in this sole is the key function in the GLIDERIDE™ shoe. Here is how it works: Improved cushioning reduces muscle load at foot strike. It does this with a combination of FLYTEFOAM™ technology and GEL™ technology cushioning. The stiff forefoot and dynamically curved sole increase running efficiency by reducing the movement of the ankle joint. A lower degree of ankle flexion means other muscles, such as the calf, don’t have to work as hard. Too much ankle movement at speed wastes energy. The shoe’s center of mass is closer to the heel, so it’s easier to swing the foot forward. The rolling motion you feel in this shoe actually propels the foot forward for increased efficiency by reducing the forward movement of the ankle. This lets you run farther with less effort. These characteristics give runners an experience unlike anything they’ve felt before. The GLIDERIDE™ shoe with GUIDESOLE™ technology lets you conserve energy for efficient runs. It’s something you have to feel to believe. Features:

Asics GlideRide - great long run shoes
Love the look of the shoes and the comfort is great. Nicely padded in all the right places, but because of this found them a bit snug. Overcame this by wearing thinner socks. They are a weighty shoe, but on long steady runs this has not been a problem. Wouldn't suggest racing in them, there are lighter alternatives. Overall very happy with my purchase and would definitely buy again.
Always buy ASICS running shoes, but cheaper version (Gel Nimbus etc.) around the �60 - �70 pound mark. However, been doing a bit more running so decided to try a more expensive pair and see if they actually made a difference. Well now totally converted. Don't know all the technical jargon, but the impact is softer and they seem to propel you forward. End result my times have come down significantly. 10km down by ~90seconds. 1 point I would make is I buy a normal day shoe at size 9 and always bought an ASICS size 10, but with these I could have potentially got away with a 9.5.
A smooth ride eventually
I haven't ran in Asics for many years but decided to give these a try. First impressions were not good. Whilst the fit is true to size, my feet became numb and the lacing system began to rub on my left foot. I wasn't best pleased.However, after some tinkering with the laces, I managed to find a comfortable fit. Even so, I found that it took me some time to learn how to run in these shoes, about 30 miles or so. The rocking motion is different to my other runners but once you get used to it, the ride is rewarding.Glideride is a daily trainer, and whilst a little on the heavy side, good for long steady runs. The rocking motion aids your run particularly on tired legs. I wouldn't race in them but they are now a popular option in my running shoe rotation.
something you have to feel to believe
Bought it as a gift for my partner & he surely loves it! Cushioned & comfortable shoe to wear. The colour is strikingly amazing.
