My last few pairs of cross trainers have been Rykas, but I recently decided to try something different, and a friend recommended these. They are probably the most comfortable athletic shoes I have ever owned -- and yet also the most expensive! The extra cost, in my opinion, is definitely worth it.

The gel cushioning makes these so comfortable, especially if you do any sort of workout that involves plyometrics or jumping. I have a tendency towards tendonitis in my right knee, and jumping in these shoes makes such a difference on my knee! They have fantastic arch support and great cushioning throughout the footbed. (The gel in the footbed is what makes these so comfortable.)

I've used them for plyo workouts, weight training, kickboxing, and step, and they work well for all of these workouts.

As for fit, I noticed on the Asics website that they said to go up a half-size in these shoes, and that's exactly what I did with these. I usually wear a 7.5 in "street" shoes and an 8 in athletic shoes, and the 8's in these were perfect; while a 7.5 probably would have fit, the 8 gave me good toe room, but didn't make my feet wiggle or move.

I'm a new convert to Asics shoes, and will definitely be replacing these with another pair when these wear out!

These shoes were comfortable from the first time I wore them for a workout. They run true to size, feel very light, but have plenty of support. One of my fitness magazines awarded these as one of the best shoes for cross training (I have used them for doing cardio and resistance DVDs) and so far they seem to be right.

These sneakers are excellent for plyometrics training, weight lifting and cardio workout on gym equipments. My only issue with it is that it is not really great on hard wood floors because the front part of it gets slippery. Other than that it has excellent support and shock absorption. I would probably pick a different one for aerobic classes on hard wood floor.

That's right. They are the BEST. CROSSTRAINING. SHOE. EVER. MADE.
I love these puppies--slip your foot in. They hug it perfectly. Even if it's wide. The offset lacing adds extra support. The great, hard-plastic arch is so supportive. When you jump, you land safely, soundly, happily. If I could, I would wear these every moment of my life. In the shower, to bed, to work, to work out, to meet with friends...seriously. They are that amazing.

Buy them. Or you're lame.

I am an avid exerciser and have found these shoes to hold up to everything! I am an RN on my feet all day, workout 5 days a week, including
aerobics, martial arts, walking,and running... these shoes hold up in all categories.

Bought these to replace my worn out Asics 260 TR. These are stiffer but not uncomfortable. Very supportive too. I wear these 3-6 times a week to the gym. I do weight training along with elliptical, treadmill, and biking. I'm not a class person so I can't comment on how they fare on wooden floors. I am very happy with these. I have a narrow foot and wear Superfeet orthotics and these fit perfectly. These have great cushioning on the treadmill walking hills as well as no more numb toes on the elliptical. No break in required. These are great for lateral lunges and squats on the Bosu. No more turned ankles!

I never buy tennis shoes without trying them on but I stepped out on faith due to all the great reviews and I am glad I did. They are super comfortable. They have a nice cushion inside the shoe. I took the advice of some and ordered a half-size up. I think that's good advice, there is a little toe room that way and makes for a good fit. I use these mainly for circuit training at Curves and they work great.I highly recommend them, definitely worth $80.

These shoes are great for aerobics and weight training...not so much for the treadmill. Having a foot injury, I am very careful about the shoes I wear. These shoes have enough cushion to allow me to get through some pretty tough workouts without even worrying about the injury. The only downside is that the laces could be a tad bit longer.

I have been using these crosstraining shoes 5-6 days a week for over a year. I use Cathe Friedrich DVDs, which include very high impact HIIT plyometric workouts as well as step aerobics and weight training. I have high arches, but these support my feet well and provide lots of cushioning for all the jumping I do. I also really like the slightly asymmetrical laces. They prevent the tongue from slipping down the side of the shoe, which often happened to me while exercising with other shoes.
I have been careful to only use these shoes for exercising, never as casual wear, and I use a separate pair of dedicated running shoes for running, so that has helped to extend their life. They did start to wear out a bit after 8 months or so, but that is to be expected of any workout shoe used regularly. I recently added orthotics for a minor skeletal issue so I have been able to put off buying a new pair of shoes even though I know mine are ready to retire, but as soon as I get the cash I will get some more of these!
Edit: I forgot to mention that the white metallic trim has yellowed, so they look fairly dingy. Again, I've never worn them outside and I've even washed them a couple times, so it's not dirt.

While I haven't had the chance to try this during a workout, I will say that my initial feelings are that they are VERY cushioned and comfortable just while walking around the house.

I took the advice of several websites and a bunch of reviews and ordered up a 1/2 size - I should have just ordered my usual size 7 because the 7 1/2 were much too big. Maybe size up if you wear very thick socks or have wide feet, but if you have narrow feet and are usually a true size __, order you normal size. Just re-ordered in a size 7 and can't wait to get them so I can really try them out.

My only real concern is that there is some rubbing on my outer ankle bone, but I seem to experience this with most running/training shoes. I'm thinking that with my usual size, the rubbing will be lessened.
