Asics GEL-DS Trainer 18 -

Getting up for an early-morning run just got a little easier with the Asics Women's GEL-DS Trainer 18 Running Shoe. Not only does the new, bright color scheme jolt your bleary eyeballs in alertness, but the smooth, cushioned ride takes some of the sting out of that first mile. Asics knocked nearly an ounce off the weight of this perennial runner's favorite to pump up your speed on the intervals, and improved the Dynamic DuoMax system to offer lightweight stability to all from slight underpronators to mild overpronators, and everyone in-between.


  • Midsole, sole, and cushioning are linked together by Impact Guidance System to provide the most natural gait from heel strike to toe-off


  • Soft materials and seamless upper construction allow a chafe-free fit


  • Heel Clutching system features a lightweight external heel counter that enhances fit and stability

Support and Cushioning:

  • GEL cushioning pods absorb impact at the rear and forefoot as the foot rolls from heel to toe
  • Breathable mesh in new upper design is reinforced with lightweight, welded support overlays
  • Dynamic DuoMax support system in midsole features dual-density foam that's positioned to enhance support and stability; features lightweight Solyte compound that offers enhanced cushioning and durability

Traction and Grip:

  • Durasponge-infused rubber in outsole provides superior flexibility while remaining durable


  • Propulsion Trussic system mimics connective tissue in the foot by creating tension as foot enters propulsion stage to propel you through your stride

Asics GEL-DS Trainer 18 Reviews:


I've been wearing Asics for 15 years and the DS trainer for 5. I really like the fit of the new update - much less bulky than previous models. However, I've worn an 8 in this model for years (last pairs were DS trainer 16s) and now need a 7.5. I wear a 7 in other brands and typically size up a full size for Asics since they run small. The major difference is a much wider toebox that on my narrow feet bunches up when I tighten the shoe properly. Basically if you have wide feet maybe stick with the same size as in the past, but folks with narrow feet may want to size down. As for the color, I'm not crazy about it - I'm a bit more of a low-key girl, but I like this shoe so much for the fit that I'm going to suck it up.

These shoes are fantastic running shoes! They're very lightweight, extremely comfortable, and they look cool, too! In fact, I just ordered a second pair so I can leave one pair in my gym locker at work. I highly recommend these shoes!

I have gotten the DS Trainers the past 3 years and these are the best yet - they shaved an ounce off the weight so it's a lot lighter and less bulky. Super comfortable and I love the color scheme

I love asics shoes. These do not have as much padding as the regular running shoes but I wanted a light version for travel. Very happy with these.

These are the most comfortable running shoes I've owned. I needed something with post on the inside and these did the trick. I wish they had other colors.
