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.

Light, fast and efficient perfectly describes the Gel-Speed Star 5 running shoe from ASICS. The sleek, minimal design creates a low profile that even looks aerodynamic. The light-as-air mesh upper provides ultimate breathability while a unique lacing design enhances the fit while reducing the chance for irritation. A rearfoot GEL cushioning system compliments your own stride while an exclusive biomorphic fit technology creates a more comfortable and natural foot environment. A reinforced toe cap ensures enhanced durability and a distinctive treading on the outsole delivers traction on all types of surfaces.

    I should note that I purchased these shoes without first trying them on(damn you internet!). Normally I wear a 9.5, noticing some of the reviews on here mentioned these running a little small I purchased a size 10. Upon arrival, the shoes are very sharp looking, I received several compliments in the short time I did wear them around. Unfortunately ordering a half size large did not do the trick for me, the shoes fit fine length wize and the tightness around my heel felt good, but the front of the shoe narrows too much and the front half of my foot felt like it was being pressed together, needless to say it made for an uncomfortable run. Fortunately the good folks at Amazon have a wonderful return policy and I was able to get my money back, so just a fair warning. Very cool looking shoes, but not proportionately shaped for me.

    The first thing I will say is that for ANY shoe you should try it on before buying. Feet shape/size and running form are different for everyone, so a shoe may work wonderfully for one person and cause considerable pain for another.

    That being said, I have purchased multiple pairs of this shoe. I purchased the first pair from a local running store where I was able to test them out, and have purchased subsequent pairs from Amazon because they are cheaper and I already know what size I need.

    Some important things to note: I have a very narrow foot. A few other reviewers have complained about the shoe's toe being too narrow. Again, trying on the shoes will quickly resolve this issue. Also, these trainers are light- to moderate-weight, so they will not hold up as long as a heavier shoe like the Saucony ProGrid or Adidas Supernova, but they are (obviously) lighter to run in and are therefore better suited to running half or full marathons.

    Case in point: this shoe is great if it fits your foot and running form, but as with any shoe I would at least try it on and, if possible, have your running form evaluated at a running specialty store while wearing the shoes before purchase.

    I purchased these shoes after trying them on at a local store. I wanted a shoe that was very lightweight. This shoe was MONEY. I run between 15 to 20 miles a week. And also compete in many different races. I have a normal step and stride,so support was not a factor for me. These shoes (along with months of training) just helped me set a Personal Best 19:56 in a 5k.

    This is the 2nd pair of Speedstar 5s that I've worn. Before that, I went through three pairs of Speedstar 3s (the yellow ones) and two pairs of Speedstar 4s (the red ones). They've all been about the same, and in fact the Speedstar 5 midsole/outsole is identical to the Speedstar 4s. The upper of the Speedstar 5s is different than the previous models. It's pretty plain, but fits about the same. Maybe a touch narrower than the 4s, but that seemed to go away after a run or two -- maybe they stretch slightly. I typically use them for tempo runs and long runs that include some marathon pace work. They're also great for long races (halfs and marathons), although I've started wearing even lighter shoes now for those distances. I have run at least 6 marathons in Speedstars though and they've been great. I'm a heel striker (always have been/always will be) and they're good for that as they've got plenty of cushion. Essentially they fit/feel like a light version of the Nimbus (which I often wear for long easier runs and general pavement-pounding). My understanding is that Asics is discontinuing the Speedstar, with the 6 being the last in the line (I've got a pair of those too, but haven't run in them yet). Moving towards the 33 line I've heard.

    Great shoes, always buy Asics after the Consumer Report and Industry reviews consistently rank them as the best for comfort and quality. BUT, this style is a HALF SIZE smaller than normal. Narrower and much tighter than normal, after a month was able to stretch them out but were still tight. Should definitely order a half size larger than you normally would.

    I bought these strictly from online reviews. I noticed they run a bit large but that is fine since my feet tend to swell the longer i run. These shoes are very light, comfortable and let my feet breathe better than some old Nike shoes I used to use. Also, I took these to Disney World and used them all day for walking. No issues! highly recommended.

    These are just what i was after. Not quite as comfy as my other sneakers though and sometimes the tongue leaves a gap showing my sock a little, althugh ni do have wide feet so maybe thta is why. On the whole I am fond of these though
