It's a very basic shoe. Flat insole. Little arch support. Cheap foam midsole. The rubber sole is pretty durable. Good shoe for $25. I wouldn't pay $35.

This was my post from the last time they were posted 2 weeks ago for cheaper:

I've got a pair of Jolt 3s on my feet right now from a previous Academy deal, so I can give some opinion.

Just last night I was looking at my Saucony Triumph ISO 5s I got during the pandemic for an outrageous price of $35. I was comparing what an MSRP $150 sneaker (Saucony Triumph ISO 5) to an MSRP $60 sneaker (Asics Jolt 3) gets you.

I pulled out the insole. The more expensive sneaker gives you an insoles with arch support wings, a heel cup, closed cell foam, and a tighter more abrasion resistant weave. The Jolt has a completely flat insole with an obviously cheap, low density open cell foam. In the expensive sneaker the foot bed (lasting board) is more anatomically shaped and has a layer of bouncy foam glued on top. The Jolt is more flat and is a bare fiber lasting board. The big failure point in shoes for me has always been the heel wearing through and foam coming out. The Saucony use some sort of slick fabric that literally shows no wear after two years. I can see the Jolts are fraying a little after 3 months. The laces in the expensive shoe are elastic and never come undone unintentionally. The Jolts have the same cheap laces you've seen in most athletic shoes. The upper fabric is softer and more stretchy on the expensive sneaker. No complaints from the rubber sole on the Jolts as they are wearing fine. After 3 months about half of the micro-texture in the tread blocks is worn away, but all of the tread blocks are still there.

The Jolts are a fine budget shoe, but the insoles are garbage. A decent insole runs $25 eliminating savings. I've always been cheap buying shoes, but snagging a premium pair has shown me that you do get a lot more paying $45-70 on slickdeals than paying $25-35 as I always have. Just my two cents and certainly not saying these are a bad deal, but you'll get a whole lot more shoe out of a $65 deal than the $35 deal.

Thanks for posting, but will wait to see if these can go closer to the $30 mark. Might be awhile. If ever.

Probably good for casual walking, but calling them a running shoe seems like a stretch

Thank you for an outstanding review and comparison. One of the best I have read here in 20 years. I purchased some Brooks Running shoes from Acadamy and the arch support is outstanding. I need to try the Saucony brand.

You're welcome. I bought the Jolt 3's for about $30. The soles aren't bad. I really considered just getting a nice Spenco insole, but when I saw they cost $25, I realized I suckered myself. I could have spent $55 on a midlevel shoe deal and came out ahead. If you need a set to tear up painting or something, the Jolt might make sense.

In terms of Asics shoes. They are Fashion class shoes. Every brand has this kind of model. They can be used if you need to run. But don't buy them for that reason.

If you don't see a certain Asics line that's sold in Traditional running specialty stores. It generally means they are the Fashion class shoes. You'll see Mystery models of Asics sold at discount shoe retailers too.

Garbage cheap shoes… not worth it IMO. Almost any running shoe that retails for less than $100 is garbage. Running shoes are worth spending more on or waiting for a good SD.
