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.

    I am really picky about shoes but I needed a new pair of casual shoes and decided to order these. They are the most comfortable shoes I have ever worn. I was a Skechers fan forever. For years that's all I would buy/wear but I have a new shoe now! The main thing is they are light and well made.

    I really like these shoes and like that I can purchase a half size (not available in stores near me). I do a lot of high impact aerobics and have had problems with heel pain and these seem to support, but give me enough flexibility to comfortably move around. Overall a great shoe.

    I love how these shoes are light and fits my foot just right. I do notice that when I wear thin socks, I feel a draft.

    I have very wide feet and these shoes were too narrow. I had to send back and order a wide pair of Asics that I love.

    I wore these shoes for 8 months and absolutely loved them. I live in NYC and walk to and from work every day (1 hour) and they provide great cushioning on the hard sidewalks. I also trained for and ran a race in this time and they are great for running. I only stopped wearing them when I noticed the cushioning had worn down a little, which is fair enough after hundreds of hours of use. After I "retired" them from daily use I wore them to boot camp classes and found them to be flexible enough for all the jumping, twisting, kicking, etc. that we had to do, as well. My next pair of ASICS (GEL-Contends) were not anywhere near as good, so I am returning to the GEL-Equations. I love them!

    I like these shoes, but they are very different than the previous model of ASICS Women's GEL-Equation 4 shoes I've been running in for a few years. They are more like the ASICS GEL-1150s/1160s/1170s model of shoes, meaning they have more support in the midfoot than I was wanting. They are true to size and fit well. They take longer to break in than a higher model shoe (for example I just found a pair of ASICS GEL-Nimbus 13 clearanced out and they only took 1 run to break them in). Will still be a decent addition to my rotation of shoes.

    I bought this very same shoe about 2 years ago. Loved them. Couldn't find the same shoe when it was time to buy another so I bought another pair of asics. They were good, but I kept going back to my old shoes. They are way too worn out to be walking in. Someone suggested looking on amazon to see if they still had this shoe and was so happy to see them. And, yes, they are just as comfy as the first pair, except I need to break them in a little. This is a good walking shoe for someone with a wide, flat foot.

    I think these are just OK because I am on my feet for 10-12 hours a day on concrete, and my feet get tired. I switch my shoes out every day, which helps. I think I need more support and I have found a hiking shoe that seems to work out better. They are OK and seem to do fine when I am not on concrete, and just working outside. I have no complaint with the shoe, it didn't fit the need I have.
