Summary

We spent 5.7 hours reading reviews from experts and users. In summary, this is what runners think:

10 reasons to buy

  • A lot of runners commented that the Asics Gel Quantum 360 looked cool and endearing.
  • Many testers still felt comfortable even after using this shoe for longer runs.
  • The upper felt soft, and they didn’t restrict the motions of the foot, wrote some runners.
  • The breathable nature of the upper fabrics was appreciated because it kept the feet of wearers cool and dry.
  • The inner fabric didn’t rub uncomfortably against the skin of a tester, giving them blister-free running experiences.
  • A great number of purchasers used the word ‘comfortable’ to describe their time wearing this running shoe.
  • The Gel Quantum 360 stayed durable and resilient for those who have tried it.
  • Runners stated that the mid-sole unit was capable of delivering responsive and reliable underfoot cushioning.
  • Some of the testers felt that the mid-sole platform was able to support the arch of their feet, thus correcting supination.
  • The Gel® Cushioning System did a great job at absorbing impact, according to a reviewer.

3 reasons not to buy

  • Some runners found the Gel Quantum 360 to be a bit heavy.
  • Some wide-footed runners felt that the mid-foot area was a bit narrow.
  • The outsole rubber wore off on some runners after only a few months of use.

Bottom line

The Asics Gel Quantum 360 was generally well-received by runners. They felt that it was able to provide reliable cushioning and consistent breathable coverage. Many were also impressed by its colorful façade and its various colorways. Some runners didn’t sit well with it, saying they preferred another Asics shoe over it. But this road running shoe pleased neutral runners and those who needed some mid-foot support.

81 / 100 based on 16 expert reviews

  • 83 / 100 by Rob Andro • Rob Andro • Level 4 expert

    This is way more comfortable, way softer underfoot. Super, super nice. Very plush. Definitely fits in the premium cushion category.

  • 83 / 100 by Standford Bear • Standford Bear • Level 1 expert

    When you run in these, they are amazing in terms of ride quality. Very, very cushy but not overly soft.

  • 83 / 100 by Runner's World • Runner's World • Level 5 expert

    Like a concept car, the Quantum 360 is designed to draw attention, with its full perimeter of visible Gel cushioning units. The surprise is that it runs well, too.

  • 71 / 100 by Solereview • Solereview • Level 5 expert

    The soft cushioning comes from the foam midsole, and the combination of the Gel and plastic midsole plate makes the ride supportive and half-responsive.

  • 86 / 100 by Salt Marsh Running • Jason Saltmarsh • Level 4 expert

    The shoe provides a nice soft landing on the harsh paved surfaces most of us train on.

  • 82 / 100 by SK Running • Kredy • Level 4 expert

    This shoe is best suited for long runs and high mileage training. It is not suited for tempo and speed runs.

  • 81 / 100 by Heavy • Kate Halse • Level 4 expert

    Feet remain firmly in place thanks to a multi-directional stretch system with mesh material. 

  • 80 / 100 by Running Shoes Guru • Travis Trampe • Level 4 expert

    The key feature that sets the new Quantum 360 apart is the introduction of the first “360 Degrees” of GEL Cushioning throughout the midsole, the most GEL of any shoe in the ASICS line-up.

  • 79 / 100 by Sportskeeda • Kredy@Kredy10 • Level 4 expert

    This shoe is best suited for long runs and high mileage training. It is not suited for tempo and speed runs.

  • 85 / 100 by Fleet Feet Sports • Fleet Feet Sports • Level 3 expert

    The deep gel will provide many miles of cushioning, while the full-length Trusstic System delivers support and a spring-loaded ride to power your workout and the advanced barely-there FluidFit upper provides strategic support so the only thing you will feel is “Ahhhhh!”

  • 98 / 100 by Bit By The Running Bug • Ashley Lynn • Level 1 expert

    It may not seem like much to all of you fast runners out there.. but for me this is a breakthrough! IT MUST HAVE BEEN THE GEL QUANTUM 360's!

  • 92 / 100 by Busted Wallet • Ryan Stevens • Level 1 expert

    While I run, on the high end about three times a week, the Asics were designed to give a quality performance to novices like me as well die-hard runners seeking cutting edge technology and comfort.

  • 84 / 100 by Runner's World • Warren Greene • Level 1 expert

    They felt soft but not squishy, and transitioned smoothly from heel-to-toe.

  • 81 / 100 by Mark Newman • Mark Newman • Level 1 expert

    The discrete construction of the full length Trusstic System delivers support and a spring-loaded ride to power through each workout.

  • 80 / 100 by Sport Seasons • Stephanie • Level 1 expert

    The gel cushion in the mid sole is more firm and less flexible than what I am used to. It does soften up some as I wear them.

  • 75 / 100 by Marathon Sports • Erin Engelson • Level 1 expert

    It’s definitely heavier than I’m used to and probably heavier than I’d want in an everyday trainer. If you’re looking for a fast-feeling shoe, this probably isn’t your guy.
