This is my fourth pair of AVIA 5020 running shoes over the last three years; sometimes when you find something that works you stick with it.

Fit:

Having slightly wider feet than the norm, I usually have to resort to E, EE widths shoes, but these (medium width) fit perfectly. etc. widths. Almost all other brands of medium width (the norm) are usually too narrow for me.

Performance:

I use them for cross training - running 2-3 miles / 3 times per week, along with weight training the other 4 days. I don't log a lot of miles running so they suit me just fine. I own a Cleaning Service and wear them the remainder of the time...So yes, I practically live in these most of the year.

Comfort:

Like I said, I spend most of my time in them.

Durability:

No more or no less than any other athletic shoe - average. Like all sneakers, I tend to step into them without untying the laces, often crushing the back heel. This results in the internal structure breaking in short order, creating "sharp" plastic poking into your ankle. If your like me and can't be bother untying the laces, take time to use your fingers as a "shoe-horn" to avoid crushing the back of the shoe. If you do this, they'll last until the tread falls off.

Value:

As good as it gets. Sure I've owned eighty plus dollar athletic shoes, some being more durable with possibly slightly more comfortable and greater support, but....It reminds me of a story. I was talking to a wine connoisseur about his experience drinking that $100 plus dollar bottle of wine, "Yes it was fantastic, but it wasn't eighty dollars better than the twenty dollar variety.

I have worn AVIA shoes for a number of years. They seem to fit my feet like a glove and are extremely comfortable. They aren't readily available in stores, so I buy them online.

This pair is not so great. There is a decorative strip along the sole which ends in a little emblem on the inside arch of the shoe. Almost immediately, both of these emblems came loose and started to flap alongside. My family saw this and joked that they looked like curb-feelers.

I recently pulled them off as much as possible, cutting them at the end, so they wouldn't trip me up. That's how bad they were. One of them was like a loose shoelace.

I am a little disappointed with this pair, for this reason. They still feel good, and are comfortable, but to have parts of the shoe just start falling off, after only two weeks of wear, seems a little chintzy and off to me.

I prefer either ASIC, Saucony, or Avia. Avia are the least expensive. I wore this model to run a marathon and they worked fine. They can double as tennis shoes and I haven't (yet) sprained an ankle. The toes don't seem to wear out as fast as shoes made for tennis. The size fit was consistent with other brands I've used (Nike, Adidas, Saucony, ASIC, New Balance). I'm not that big (170) and have a pretty neutral (albeit flat) foot, so I like these because they don't have a lot of "motion control." Also I only run about 12-15 miles per week so these may not be as good for bigger or higher mileage runners.

Nice shoe, had them for about a week so far and no problems. Remember that Avia shoes run small so always get a size bigger. I normally wear 12s but get 13s when I buy Avia.

Read other reviews that helped me determine size. Normally buy 9EE but I went w/ a medium D width & went 1/2 size larger to accommodate my wide foot, so I purchased a 9 1/2 D & it works. I had always wore a 9EE(wide) suddenly you couldn't find EE only 4E (which were too wide). I've had other AVIA shoes usually Cross-trainers and like them. AVIA fits me better than FILA or New Balance. Seems to have more arch support and the sole of the shoe covers the bottom of foot better than others w/ my wider width. These are not cross-trainers but work providing lateral movement support. The top of the ankle pad feel lower compared to my old cross-trainers but are ok because I don't feel any pressure when squatting deeply which requires a lot of flex in ankle. Use for exercise & walking. The shoe is very light.

This was the most comfortable shoe ever for someone with wide feet and needing a larger toe box. WHY OH WHY did Avia quit making this shoe. For years, I purchased this shoe in 10.5 4e and should have bought 10 pairs of them had I known they were going to quit making them. I wrote Avia and they said "too bad so sad...we don't make them anymore.' Avia gave me these alternate shoes to look at and I bought a pair of the gray ones. JUNK. Total JUNK. Bring these back!

Folks you need to put the item # when writing these reviews!!!! Okay - I got a pair of these 5 years ago if not longer. They have lasted through many days at the gym and miles running - I was just looking for a new pair of running shoes - Asics and Fila but they were either too expensive - too fancy with Flamboyant Colors - than after some browsing noticed this same model that I have - I'm going to order them again - they are a GREAT all around sneaker - for every day - working out and running. Light yet firm and well made - I just hope that they are made with the same integrity as the pair I have. This is probably the best all around sneaker I"ve owned. (* nice to see a "classic" in the makings don't waste your time looking for a sneaker of the month - buy this model it's a GREAT one!!!

I usually wear Nike running shoes with air components in the front and back. I bought the AVIA's as an inexpensive but comfortable, supportive everyday shoe. This is my first pair of AVIAs and I would recommend them. We'll see how they hold up in the long run. I took the advice of several people on Amazon who recommended ordering a half size larger than my normal shoe size and they were right on. I only give them 4 stars because they are so new and I haven't worn them for a long time at this point. For the price (compared to what I normally pay for my shoes), they are a bargain so far.
