Asics Gel Blur33 2.0 Running Shoe Review


Asics are well known for the out of the box appeal their shoes offer customers and the Asics Gel Asics Gel Blur33 2.0Blur33 2.0 continues this legacy. The Blur33 2.0 was released less than a year after the launch of the original Blur33 with a redesigned upper that offers a better visual appeal than its predecessor.

According to customer and tester reviews, the change in the upper resulted in a shoe that feels much better and very different from the previous version. The out sole, cushioning and insole were all retained, which means that most of what made everyone fall in love with the Gel Blur33 was retained while introducing new improvements.

Key features of the Asics Gel Blur33 2.0

Design features

Just like its predecessor, the Asics Gel Blur33 2.0 has an open mesh design which is highly breathable and features supportive under lays around the Asics logo. These under lays hug the mid foot area but not tight as to cause discomfort. The shoe’s heel collar consists of memory foam designed to provide a firm fit while maintaining the shape of your heels.

The Blur33 2.0’s toe box is wide, which is typical of Asics as it provides an accommodating fit and allows the toes plenty of room to splay. Asics used oval laces on the Blur33, which may pose a slight problem for some runners as it easily comes loose unless you pull them tightly when tying the laces. This may be distracting, but can easily be remedied by getting a pair of flat laces.

You do not have to worry about odors after long runs thanks to the ComforDry Sock liner that provides resists odor causing bacteria and directs moisture from the skin to keep your feet dry even when you sweat.

Asics-Gel-Blur33-2.0-4Stability and comfort

The Asics Gel Blur33 2.0 running shoe was designed to provide the foot with all the natural freedom of movement it needs (the 33 stands for the total number of joins in the foot). The uppers offers a more traditional fit as the upper material stretches a little to accommodate your foot properly when running. There also is a healthy amount of wiggle room for your toes at the front and you can adjust this to your needs by tightening or loosening the laces.

Due to its minimalist nature, the Asics Gel Blur33 2.0 doesn’t use any motion control technologies such as wedging and dual density foam, but this doesn’t stop it from offering a supportive feel in the foot. The critical areas of the out sole are reinforced with high abrasion rubber which provides better stability and traction. Moreover, vertical flex grooves are provided to allow for a more flexible tread pattern.

Product weight

The Asics Gel-Blur33 2.0 is considered to be a fairly lightweight running option coming in at just under 10 ounces in the men’s 9.5 size, quite reasonable for training shoes.


What type of runners was this shoe designed for

The Asics Gel Blur33 2.0 running shoe is a great option for runners looking to benefit from the core technologies offered by Asics but with a more minimalist, stripped down look compared to traditional training shoes. It has a low foot bed which makes it possible for the shoe to be used by a wide variety of runners. However, the Blur33 shines on long runs over interval/shorter tempo workouts.

Last thoughts on the Asics Gel Blur33 2.0

Available for both men and women, the Gel Blur33 2.0 running shoes from Asics offer a great deal of quality throughout the shoe design. They are incredibly comfortable and will mold around your feet.
