Although I am a big runner (200+) I have always had great luck with Asics 1050, 1060, 1070, 1080, 1090, 1100 & 1110. In the last 4 1/2 years I am closing in on 20,000 miles. I get 500-700 miles out of a pair, they never have required break in time, not too much cushion and cheaper.<br><br>
I've tried the 2100 series - Too much cushion.<br><br>
I tried the 1120's and they suck! They made some major changes and now its time to find new shoes to get broken in by the time Boston rolls around.<br><br>
I like a shoes with light stability control, light cushion and are fairly lightweight trainers. I have run the last 6 marathons in my Asic Magic Racers (Racing Flats) but I am too heavy to run this one in flats.<br><br>
I am not brand loyal, but once I find a shoe that works I do not experiment.<br><br>
Any Ideas? I was thinking maybe NB 826

Sounds like the 1120s have the same issues as the 2120.<br><br>
Note that the Racers and Ohana were replaced by the Gel Bandito. With Asics, the DS Trainer 13 is the next one up, termed "performance stability". They are pretty light for the stability they offer.<br><br>
Mizuno Wave Elixir would be another "performance stability" option. Very different feel from the Asics - lower and seemingly not as cushioned.<br><br>
I'm not a Nike, Brooks or NB fan so can't really comment on them. Never tried the Saucony Grid Tangent.

Brooks has some shoes that are between stability and neutral. Check them out on brooksrunning.com. They look like really good shoes. Also the ds trainer would not be an ideal shoe for a marathon. Good for training and shorter distances as per experience and from the people at the shoe stores. I also wear the brooks adrenaline and they have been a good shoe for me. Also the brooks T3 racer is the racing shoe to be considered for stability.

I agree, it's too heavy. <img alt="smile.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/smile.gif"><br><br>

I should have responded to the OP...<br><br>
I agree with RunAsics, take a look at Mizuno, specifically the Wave Elixir.<br><br>

Thank you for the ideas<br><br>
I am going to work on getting something ordered this weekend. I have 4 pair old 1100s and 1120s that I am making due with right now, but the 1100s have seen better days. Its funny I had bought 10 pair of the 1100s when they were $49.95 - I should have bought 20.<br><br>
Thanks again
