Product Description

Asics Women's GEL-Speedstar 6 Running Shoes. These running shoes feature a synthetic and mesh upper with a mesh lining, lightweight, a rubber sole, a Rearfoot GEL cushioning system, and a lace up style.

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 ran my 1st marathon in the Speedstar 4's and can recall putting them on a few weeks before the run and being so dissapointed that I hadnt purchased them earlier in my training. I had been running in the Asics Cumulus and Asics Nimbus models for years, and these were noticeabley much lighter from the second I put them on my feet. My strides were lighter and faster. Im now in the Speedstar 6's, and still very happy with these sneakers.
    It's also worth mentioning I have had knee problems for years, so I was skeptical about having less cushion in my sneaker. No problems whatsoever in that regard.
    As for the sizing, this style is no different for me than other Asics in the past. Im always an 8.5. Love the Speedstars!

    I read another review that said there was a strong chemical smell to this shoe. It's true; probably because the shoe is mostly a soft plastic material. That's not a fabric mesh you see in the pic, it's plastic, or rubber. There is a strong smell, but I've had them 2 days, and they're already airing out.

    I've used Nike for years, but decided to try something new. I tested other ASICS shoes, and as a rule, I'd say they run narrow. I had to buy a 1/2 size up. These shoes, however, seem to be a little more roomy through the top, for my high arches, AND they felt really stable on my first run! I've read some other reviewers say that these shoes were lightweight and added speed to their run - this is true for me as well. Also, I didn't get too much skin irritation or blistering trying to break them in. That was nice. The shoelaces are too small to lace them up all the way, however, so they kept coming untied during my run. Overall, great for running for the high arched foot - which the ASICS website verifies:

    Last year I bought the Speedstar 5 and I was really happy with it. The speedstar 6 is a comfortable shoe that doesn't need to be broken in. Perfect fit from day 1! I just ran a half marathon and I felt great!

    Very little arch support! Light weight but not good support at all if you need it! Not worth my money, would rather spend a little more for Nike Shox.

    They are super cool! However, when I wear them all day, Say shopping, they hurt my feet to the point were it is hard to keep them on.

    Neutral, light and fast. I have had 4 over the years. Not that well known, but loved by those that know about it.

    Wow, I don't know what the gel is made of, but these sneakers REALLY stink! I didn't want to wash them, because I imagine that isn't good for the gel, but they won't air out! They smell like fish!! It's awful! Won't be ordering online again anytime soon... they stunk up my closet! Guess I'll have no choice but to wash brand new shoes...
