Thank you for your feedback.
Comfortable right out of the box, fit true to size, colors as pictured.
They performed very well while providing comfort, a great fit, and flexibility.
Fits perfectly, first time out the box I did a two hour zumba thon and forgot I had on new shoes.

Product Description

With a lightweight design and breathable upper, these ASICS GEL-Venture 4 High-Performance wide trail running shoes let you take over the trails.

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 have been wearing ASICS most of my life. They fit me much better than most running shoes. This is the first pair I have been disappointed in. It makes a weird noise when I walk, the front end sort of bending and "breaking," so to speak. They are not comfortable. They have no cushion. I feel like I'm running in some cheap shoe. They aren't expensive, but they were $50 and I expected them to be as good as all the other ASICS I've used for the past 40 years. Also, the shoe laces are constantly coming untied. Annoying.

    I was looking for a good pair of running shoes and these were on sale at a local store for $39.99 so I tried them on, liked them and brought them home.

    I did not give it too much thought as my husband was asking me to make a decision (after 1+ hrs looking) so I liked them and they were the last ones I tried on. With that being said, lets start my review:

    Color: I really liked the charcoal/black/magenta ones, they are really nice and not too in your face

    Size: I usually wear a 8.5 but my toe was already touching the end so I got a 9 instead

    Width: I felt the 8.5 was a bit tight as well, so getting the 9 helped with that

    Heel: When I tried them on in the store, I wore thicker socks, when I tried them at home I wore the small, thin socks. My heels kept slipping and it felt as if the shoes was going to come out, so every step I took my heel was moving up and down. Maybe the 0.5 bigger did made a difference after all.

    Arch: shoes have some arch support, which might be great for some but unfortunately for me I have a low arch and after walking around the house to see how they felt, I realized they were not for me. This is for someone with a higher arch probably

    Sole: multi surface sole, it looks like trail running would be no problem. It is a hard sole though, if you are used to softer soles, you might not like this one.

    I gave it 4 stars because regardless of the fact that these are not for me because of my arch, that is not a shoe related issue but more of a "me" thing. The sole being so hard is what made me give this shoe a four star review.

    Great colors - subtle and bright at the same time. Comfortable well fitting shoe. Removal insoles. Deep enough for orthotics. Only negative is that nylon shoe laces come untied

    I've been running and doing intense cardio in Asics Gel sneakers for years. These are the cheapest made shoes I have ever purchased. I regret purchasing and will discontinue wearing because they cause pain in my ankle and shin.

    Shoes are falling apart and are barely a month old. The sides are bowing and don't remain flush with your foot. Complete waste of money.

    These ASICS GEL-Venture 4 were nearly 1/2 inch too short! I compared them to another pair of ASICS I wear (the exact same size) and couldn't believe the difference. Needless to say, they were quickly returned.
