Best Asics shoes for Men with achilles pain

Over the past 30 years, Asics has made some of the best running shoes on the market. The Gel-Kayano, Gel-Cumulus, and GT-2000 series have been three of the best selling running shoes on the planet. That's because Asics' long commitment to quality and wear testing has produced shoes that runners get hooked on--and never want to take off.

Achilles pain, which often stems from achilles tendinitis, can linger and derail a training season and even a running career. When the Achilles tendon comes under too much stress, it can become inflamed (the tendinitis) or even rupture. To prevent the debilitating issue, it's important to stretch the calves, not build up mileage too quickly, and avoid excessive hill work or speedwork. It's also important to buy the right running shoes. Wearing inflexible shoes, shoes that don't fit your stride (for pronators especially), and shoes with a low heel-to-drop can all cause Achilles issues.
