Asics Trainers Review

The Asic Gel Cumulus 12 Trainer
RRP £85

The Asic Gel Cumulus 12 Trainer

The Asic Gel Cumulus 12 Trainer were a perfect fit and where customized to the shape and style of my running. The asics store in London have the technology to  design a trainer around the runner which is very important for anyone who trains seriously.

The major focus of gait analysis is to measure the degree of pronation.
The Gait analysis matches the runner’s degree of pronation with the correct shoe type, with the aims of counter-balancing over or underpronation, helping reduce the risk of injury and improving running efficiency. 

3D Foot Mapping is the most advanced version of video gait analysis which, in addition to video, uses both lasers and micro cameras to create a highly detailed 3D image of the foot. A range of information obtained from the scan, such as arch height and the alignment of the achilles with the leg, is assessed to source the perfect running shoe and could even help runners get to the root of any recurrent injuries.

Then onto the video gait analysis. It involved running for a few minutes on a treadmill while a video is made of the runner’s feet. This footage is then slowed down and analysed in detail by an ASICS professional who will explain the findings.

From all of this and after trying on a few trainers I was matched to the Asic Gel Cumulus 12 trainer.

I tested the trainers on a concrete and a running track terrain to really see what these trainers are made of. The support on the balls of my feet was great, as I run in a Sprint style a lot of my weight is on the front of my foot and I could feel the trainer stabilizing me throughout. The trainer now has a full-length Solyte 45 which means more cushioning for the forefoot!

With most runners when fatigue sets in I tend to place more weight on my heels.

The new double personal heel feature makes such a difference to those horrible moments when you’re a mile away from the finish line. I felt like my heels where bouncing which felt great compared to other trainers where they initially start to ach slightly. Asics once again have taken that extra step to give runners what they want and need! A trainer customized to a personas individual need, so where are the flaws in that? 5 star!




The GEL-NETBURNER PROFESSIONAL 6 is an elite Netball shoe packed with leading ASICS technologies. Built for the player wanting the look and feel of a running shoe.

Asics-Gel Netburner Professional 6

The Gel netburner was reviewed by a member of our team at WSR. She has been an avid player of netball for a long time, so was thrilled to be able to review these specific trainers.

The outcome was superb. What a fantastic, well made trainer. Support throughout the game. Support for the ankles in netball is the most important thing, so many ankles straps are worn on court after years of ankle twisting, stretched ligaments. Once I put the trainers on I could feel quality, comfort and support. She suffers heavily with shin splints and the Gel Netburners kept the pain away, no recurrent shin splints for the last two weeks.

Well recommended. 10/10
Good Job Asics
