The most comfortable, lightweight shoe in the GEL-Cumulus series will make you want to run all day.
In 1949, Mr. Kihachiro Onitsuka began his athletic footwear company (Onitsuka Co., Ltd.) by manufacturing basketball shoes out of his living room in Kobe, Japan. He chose the name ASICS for his company in 1977, based on a famous Latin phrase "Anima Sana In Corpore Sano," which, when translated, expresses the ancient ideal of "A Sound Mind in a Sound Body." Taking the acronym of this phrase, ASICS was founded on the belief that the best way to create a healthy and happy lifestyle is to promote total health and fitness. Today, ASICS offers a full line of performance-driven athletic shoes and technical active sports apparel and accessories dedicated to bringing harmony to the body and soul.

The Asics Cumulus shoes have been very consistent for me. The fit is the same from one year to the next, despite the "updating". The usual advice is to get Asics shoes a half size larger than your street shoe, and I suppose that's right, but I find street shoes vary quite a bit in size also, so some street shoes I've bought have the same exact size number as my Asics. The toe box has a good amount of room.
I have two grumbles about the Cumulus 16. First, the mesh is quite thin, and it lets water in immediately. I went out for a run in a very very light drizzle (not much more than a mist), and my feet were damp within 10 minutes. I've never had that happen before. Yes, if I'm running in a downpour, my feet will get wet. But this was unexpected.
Second, it seems like there is slightly less cushioning than before. Over the years, whenever I switch to a new pair of Asics, I'm used to feeling a softer ride immediately than how my old shoes felt. This time, I didn't feel any greater cushioning in the Cumulus 16s. If anything, the shoes felt slightly less soft than the pair that had 700 miles on them. Now that's very subjective on my part, and I couldn't swear to it. But that's how it feels.
Perhaps Asics went with the light almost transparent mesh and reduced the cushioning to save a few grams of weight.Read more ›
