They fit well (the wide width is accurate and roomy), have great support and are a reasonably stylish.

Amazon Customer "Hurtman" | Fit: As expected
I paired these up with some wigwam sock which made the fit perfect (for me) and improved comfort even more.

Product Description

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.

Comfortable on-road, the grippy outsole truly shines when you leave the paved path.

    Good value and expected asics fit & quality. My new running shoes. I guess I'm a bit biased because I only buy asics athletic shoes. If you have wide feet you can't go wrong... I always buy a 1/2 size up and 4E width, and everything works out great for me

    Color Name: Charcoal/Carbon/BlueSize Name: 14 4E US Verified Purchase
    These are good shoes, they fit well in most respects, but they are just not as wide as I'd hoped.I bought the 4E width, and it really doesn't feel any wider 2E. I have purchased other ASICS shoes in the past and have not noticed the toe-box being this tight. It isn't unwearable, it will just take for it to stretch out, I guess.

    Color Name: Black/Lightning/LimeSize Name: 9 D(M) US Verified Purchase
    These shoes are designed for the neutral runner. This is a surprisingly great trail running shoe for the price. It has a nice thick and well cushioned midsole with GEL in the heel, not sure about the forefoot. The fit is good and the quality is up to the ASICS standard. I use these as my daily casual shoes as well as run in them because they feel so good on my feet. They work well on the road as well as the trail. The mesh upper is a tighter/closer knit making the shoe a good choice for running in cold weather. The trail designed outer sole works good if you get to run in the snow. If I had to use two words to describe this shoe, I would say "versatile and comfortable" and they are a great value as well.

    I got these for my husband in blue for Christmas. They are a great color and style. He has a wide foot but he can normally wear a 10.5 medium width. I wanted him to be as comfortable as possible running because enjoys doing 2-5 mile runs a few times a week. He was a high school track star and 10+ years later has maintained his runner's routine and does 1-2 marathons a year for fun. The 10.5 4E was perfect for him and comfortable right out of the box. He wears them as every day shoes and has gone on one short test run with great results. He says they are the most comfortable running shoes he's ever had because he rarely is able to find the wides in his size. He can't wait to go for his first real run in them!

    I ordered another style from ASICS in an 11 medium for comparison since I wasn't sure which one would fit better. The size 11 shoes were still too narrow in the toe box for him to feel comfortable while exercising.

    Fits well and comfortably, a little tighter in the sides than expected but still good. A nice spring to them which helps in longer runs

    It looks good, feels good, and I use them everyday. I got the first pair for running and mud running. I found this pair online and it's as good as my first pair.

    This was my first attempt with these shoes, I usually purchase Asics in the $120-140 range and wanted a shoe with more versatility. I wear a 14 in all Asics, but this one feels about a half to quarter size smaller than ideal. Aside from the extra snug fit, surprisingly great stability and comfort. I really enjoy the looks too, so will wear it with jeans or shorts. I will buy again but might try 0.5 to1 size up (if possible). Go for it! Cheers
