Reviewed by smartwork from Houston on Friday, February 20, 2015First let me say my love affair with Asics dates back to the very first Kayano. I have pretty high expectations that these shoes (currently loving the GT 2000 model T2K7N for the gym) will deliver. This one disappoints. First it's the foaming tongue that feels like the throw away sponge they give you on hot race days. Secondly it is the really cheap pull out orthotic (the thing that you can pull put of the shoe and replace with a higher quality supportive foot bed). It definitely feels less supportive and less contoured than previous Asics shoes. The neon blue is shinier than shown in the product picture and looks like a cheap plastic. My feet are not narrow nor wide and while my heel swims in this shoe (even with different lacing efforts to stabilize the fit) my forefoot and toes feel like they are in prison. One 3 mile run and my heel hurt and toes quickly became numb. With a half marathon on the horizon I bought my first Brooks (Adrenaline 11) and am much happier but still hopeful that Asics will listen to enough of us diehard fans and return to the quality they are known for. On the plus side, this shoe has a white bottom that would allow for its use on courts where black shoe soles are not permitted. It does allow for a variety of lacing pattern options and Asics is kind of known for that. The back 3/4 of the shoe is VERY rigid and some one with a wider heel and narrow forefoot might benefit from this shoe. It is true to size length wise. I would simply put in a better orthotic for heel stability if the forefoot wasn't so tight and the shoe wasn't so rigid. I do not like to return things but these cannot even be used for the gym.

Verified Buyer Reviewed by ckayrun from San Jose, CA on Wednesday, February 11, 2015I don't like to pay a lot for dog walking shoes. I go through a pair about every 3 months. So was happy to use a coupon and get a good deal on the Asics GT-2000. They have 3 weeks on them and seem to be holding up well. I really like the more cushioned Asics Cumulus better, but these are a good second choice. They seem to have plenty of cushion for walking on concrete. I'm not running much any more, but I would definitely feel confident about purchasing these for running. They have good support and good visibility. Color is not all important to me, but the blue seems to go a lot better with jeans and shorts than I thought it would. I was so happy with them that I picked up a 2nd pair!
Verified Buyer Reviewed by Mockingbirdvt from Vermont on Tuesday, February 10, 2015I always buy Asics for my running shoes. These fit well and help with my pronation. I was badly in need of new shoes and I noticed the difference right away. And, I love the color!
Reviewed by JMenard from Fallbrook, California on Tuesday, January 20, 2015I am a faithful and long time Asics fan. I usually purchase the Cumulus for running/walking, but this time I was looking for something a little different. Over the last year, I have suffered a stress fracture in my heel and a small tear in my plantar fasciitis. I wanted something to support the heel while running, working, and walking. This shoe is perfect for what I was needing! Lots of good support and cushion. And, as usual with Asics, I put them on and never gave them another thought. I usually wear a 9-1/2 for running but since I was buying these for work too, I got the 9. They fit perfectly. I'm definitely going to be purchasing another pair!
Answer I searched and it mentioned BR stands for Blue Ribbon indicating a portion of the sales goes toward prostate cancer research. Not really sure if they is the case. But, I love the shoes. They are very comfy and supportive.
Answer The GT 2000 2-BR is part of Asics Cancer Awareness collection. The "BR" standing for blue ribbon. A portion of the proceeds from the BR (blue ribbon) collection goes towards the Prostate Cancer Foundation. There is a small blue cancer ribbon on the heel of the shoe. Both the Men's and Women's version has a faux mustache on the tongue of the shoe, which just looks like a velvety material. All other components of the shoe are the same as a regular GT-2000. Same great shoe, just helping out a great cause!
Answer The 2-BR is only written on the box. The shoe otherwise says just GT-2000. The are identical to another pair I bought my daughter at a local running store except for color. These are a bright blue. I don't have the box from the earlier pair to compare.
