Who should not buy it

If you're somewhat skeptical about the lifespan of the Gel-Mc Plus' cushioning, try the ASICS Gel Lyte V instead. You're also free to insert a more padded footbed as the featured shoe is orthotic-friendly.

The ASICS Gel-Mc Plus' spot-on sizing

Scores of owners are united about the Gel-Mc Plus being a true-to-size sneaker. Note that such kicks translate to better heel and forefoot hold, resulting in blister-free first few days.

A replaceable footbed

While quite cushy, the stock insole of the Gel-Mc Plus is reportedly flimsy. Since the shoe in question is orthotic-friendly, some fancy replacing its stock footbeds with gel orthotics for extra plushness and support underfoot.

Denim Tears X ASICS Gel-Mc Plus

Tremaine Emory (a.k.a. Denim Tears), creative director of the Supreme brand, came up with his own design of this ASICS offering. Named simply Denim Tears X Gel-Mc Plus, this collaborative piece ravishes in a grungy sunset color blocking. Denim Tear's inspiration for this kick dates back to his childhood, where his and his brothers' shoes would turn dirty orange after playing around clay soil every summer.
