Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

Is this model true to size?

Yes, this shoe fits regularly, according to the athletes who tried this model. Therefore, you can order your regular size for running shoes. However, if this is your very first pair of Asics, it’s recommended to test them in a shop to be safe.

I overpronate. Is the Asics Gel Quantum 360 6 adapted for me?

Yes, this shoe should be suitable for all people. Indeed, it’s a neutral running shoe. Therefore, it aims to suit all runners independently from their pronation type. It doesn’t have support features to correct the foot’s movement and prevent overpronation. However, science doesn’t back such a prop when it comes to reducing injury, so we recommend sticking to neutral shoes, except, of course, if you find stability shoes more comfortable.

Is this a shoe for heavyweight athletes?

Yes, this model has a medium stack height and comfortable cushioning that supports the foot comfortably and should be suitable for everybody, regardless of their weight.

Is the Asics Gel Quantum 360 6 suitable to run a marathon?

It depends. In principle, it’s a comfortable shoe with good cushioning suitable for long distances, including marathons. However, it’s a heavy shoe that is more about style than performance, so it may not be the best option on the market. It’s up to you based on your experience and sensations.
