Hit the road running and barely feel the miles as they tick by.
The human foot contains 33 independent joints that allow your foot to flex and adapt to the ground, giving you stability and speed. Asics gave the GEL-Blur 33 2.0 Running Shoe a glove-like fit and ample flexibility so you can take advantage of your foot's natural flexibility and never feel held back. Ideal for high-mileage training, the dynamic chassis provides support that will make supinators and neutral runner immediately feel at home. Mono-Sock construction eliminates the need for a traditional tongue, making it easier than ever to slide your foot into this shoe and achieve a snug, comfortable fit. Memory foam lines the heel pocket, ample cushioning absorbs the impact from the road, and ultralight midsole material makes this distance shoe feel virtually weightless.
While few shoes truly compare, the Blur33 is flanked in Asic's 33 lineup by the Gel-Neo33 and the Gel-Lyte33. The first is a mild stability shoe with more support for moderate overpronators; the latter, a featherweight option designed for under-to-over pronators who crave speed. And between these shoes stands the Blur33, with its slipper-like comfort, range of pronation support, and heavenly cushioning—time to fire up your marathon training regimen again.
- Mono-Sock Fit System utilizes an internal elastic sleeve which replaces a traditional tongue so this shoe fits close like a sock
- ComforDry Sockliner provides cushioning and resists the bacteria that causes odors
- Sockliner also encourages the movement of moisture away form your skin so your foot stays dry even if you work up a sweat
- Ankle collar molds to the foot thanks to dual-layer memory foam cushioning
- Midsole is made of dual-density foam that provides support and stabilizes your footstrike on uneven terrain
- Solyte midsole material is ultralight and extra durable
- 10mm drop (heel-forefoot offset) offers a more traditional running shoe feel and supports runners who naturally heelstrike (or prefer to) when running
- GEL rearfoot cushioning pod absorbs shock when your foot hits the ground so you get the smoothest transition from heel to toe
- Outsole is reinforced with high abrasion rubber in critical areas
- Sole uses vertical flex grooves that allow for a more flexible tread pattern

That review below me is pretty technical so let me give you the Devil Dog version. I pound the earth into submission when I run. I am not a runner. I run because I want to run. I buy a new pair of running shoes every year. I chose this shoe for this years' pounding because it seems like a good mix of straight up running shoe and more lightweight. It feels great. That is what I am looking for, a shoe that gives me no excuses only performance. Will I be a blur? No. I will be the guy icing his back and knees but my feet will look and feel great!

I like to run in a zero drop minimalist shoe on the road or trail but have found that it doesn't work for me on my treadmill during the winter so I was looking for a shoe with some padding and drop. This shoe has 10.9mm of heel/toe drop and a 24.2mm sole under the forefoot. I've read reviews that they fit snug but for me they were spot on - maybe even a bit of extra room. The sole is super smooth so they are nice and quiet on a treadmill and don't wear the belt unnecessarily. The shoe isn't a minimalist shoe at all - much stiffer than a Nike free (or any of the barefoot shoes we sell on here). The gel in the heel makes for a pretty cushy ride if you heel strike at all - some people won't like this, especially if you're running inside as it makes for a pretty squish ride, but it works well for me. Have only done short runs so far but I may not do any long runs this winter so I'm not going to promise an update.
