Asics Patriot 13 running shoes tested

It is not very often that we test clothes or shoes but from time to time we like to show off with favorite products.

Today we are taking a closer look at the Asics Patriot 13 running shoes which were used for almost a month now so it is time for our consumer feedback.


The Asics Patriot 13 is a comfortable running shoe but it is a bit heavier than some other competitors in the segment. These running shoes rely more on stability and durability rather than lightweight comfort.

Also, in the summer season it felt a bit too warm and not very well ventilated. After a long hot day with these shoes my socks always smelled like...

Generally speaking, I am quite satisfied with the Asics Patriot 13. I wish they were a bit more flexible and better ventilated.

There are many similar models from Asics' model line up, with different colors and materials and also quite good for running. So, I would basically recommend you to pick your color and style and then if possible just test them at the shoe store.
