Asics 120 vs. Asics Gel Lyte V

        I would like to know people's opinions on the Asics Gel 120
vs. the Gel Lyte Vs.  The 120s are discontinued so I got them at 30%
off ($55) while the Vs are brand new so I got them around $77.  I can
afford both pairs of shoes, but I obviously don't want to spend more
money than I have to.  I bought both pairs and plan to return one.
The will be used for high-mileage training and (hopefully) a marathon
in March.
        The major difference is padding in the front.  The 120s have
none while the Vs have Gel in the front as well as the back.  How
necessary is that to someone who doesn't have "perfect feet" and is
especially prone to knee and shin injuries
        I would like anyone 's opinion about either one of these shoe
types.  Thanks.

        Personal note to everyone who requested information about
trail shoes (from a previous posting):  Finals just ended and I will
sift through my mail soon, I promise!  I just need to cat all the
messages together.  Sorry So Slow.
