I'm a regular runner. I usually run 4-5 times per week, 3-5 miles each time. When I started running, an associate at a local shoe store turned me onto the Asics GT-2150 because of my WIDE feet and neutral pronation. I have pretty serious heel spurs and a history of plantar fasciitis, so I need a fair amount of cushion in my running shoes. The 2150s were great. When they were discontinued, I found a good deal on the Equation 6 and tried them out. Loved them, they were a very suitable replacement. So, now the Equation 6 is discontinued and I was ready to try the 7. I read a pretty bad review about them changing dramatically, no longer as cushioned, different fit, etc. I decided to go with the Nike Air Pegasus 30 instead, which is also available for my Buick sized feet. It's a great shoe, but it's too cushioned. My feet felt tired from trying to keep stable. Back to the Equation 7. Amazon spied on me enough to know that I had looked at them, and sent me an email one morning with a great price on the 7s. I bought them, and as I had read they really felt different from the 6s. They are definitely not as cushioned, but provided the stability that the Nikes did not. The fit was pretty comparable to the 6s. My first time on the road with them I ran 15k, my longest run ever. I thought if there was going to be a problem with them, I might as well force it out on day one. My feet felt great throughout the run, my old knees and hips were the limiting factor. In the end, it's true. They are not as cushioned as previous models, but I'm a fan. Asics always comes through for me and my wide feet.

These feel narrow, and there's barely enough room for a cushioned insole. I feel they are cutting corners with these shoes. The cushioning in the shoe doesn't feel as though it will last very long. A disappointment.

Having bought Asics of the exact same size for years, I was surprised that these were skimpy with the upper material, and even the laces were shorter. Just seemed cheaply made.

I run a lot, sometimes long distances over asphalt, and other times at the track. Either time require a lot of cushioning, and these pair of shoes deliver very well. They're very well-cushioned, and the insoles have not too much arch support. They look good, too! These were the replacement for my Puma Mobium, which were awesome while they lasted. I'm getting the feeling that these Asics are going to be with me for a very long time. Very happy with this purchase!

These are reasonable sneakers. Have owned many Asics running shoes in the past, and I do think the quality in this pair isn't up to previous standards (although I paid around $60- for these and between 80-100 for other Asics). Now owned for around 6 months (with most wear on weekends) and feel that the shoes are already showing more wear than I expected. However, they are comfortable and pretty lightweight.

I bought these sneakers for my gym workouts only.
However, after just 2 wears, I decided that they would be my everyday sneaks.
These sneakers are so comfortable! Great support.
Even with the 1st wear, which is usually a little uncomfortable for any new shoe, I forgot these were new!
They feel great, and great to wear all day!

I have been wearing ASICS athletic shoes for at least the last 20 years and there use to be a time I thought they made a quality product.
Unfortunately for me the quality and consistency of these shoes have diminished to the point that I can no longer wear them.
I have wide feet and and normally need 4E width shoes. Where in the past I did OK fitting into 2E shoes, I now need 4E.
These last 2 pairs (different styles/extra wide 4E) that I'm returning are because it physically hurt my feet just trying to get them on.
Use to be when they were a little tight I could count on the shoes loosening up over time, but not anymore.
I've discussed this with my foot Dr. and he told me it's not all due to my feet getting wider it's most likely the shoes getting narrower.
This does make sense because my orthotics are becoming tighter fitting as well and require more trimming to fit the shoes narrower width.
Oh well I'm sure this isn't the only brand that's been skimping on materials and labor over the years to keep profits up.
I now go off in search of a new brand that actually sells 4E width shoes- without breaking the bank!

I have giant feet and these shoes fit perfectly. I use them for exercising and everyday wear. I will be ordering another pair in the future.

I like these shoes, but i do have some issues.
I have been wearing these for 6 months now, I waited this long because i really wanted to see how they held up.
The insoles are pretty worthless, they are good for maybe a month tops. So, i got custom insoles made and still not 100% on these shoes.
Running shoes aren't always that stiff in the upper part of shoe, but these need it. Wearing a size 15 - 4E, my feet are rolling a bit more than i like. I have mainly worn these when i work out, but after being in them for 3 hours or more, one shoe starts squeaking when i walk.
For a big wide shoe they do fit great and right to size and as i said I do like them, but not really for extended wear.
But, 6 months of working out twice a week (upto 10 hours/week of wear time), they are still like brand new.

I suffer from extreme over pronation my size 12 foot needs just a qwosh more room and these fit the order. Asics to me has always been the best out of the box true jimmy jam fit. I hope they never compromise the high standards of quality and research that we as customers so desperately need now days. There just to many junk shoes on the market , poor construction , No arch support, hard soled worthless shoes. to much unneeded expense experimenting and pain threshold evaluations. could not be more pleased , comforted in the 1/2 size increments, Pa lease don't ever stop this helpful addition . superb customer cost, they truly meet their motto of CUSTOMER satisfaction .
