My first pair of Asics,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: ASICS Women's GEL-1160 Running Shoe (Apparel)
I walk oddly, apparently.
I put a lot of pressure on the ball of my foot and my shoes get worn down more in that area after about 2 years. I also roll my ankles quite a bit. I did some research and found that 'stability' shoes would be best, or shoes designed for tennis players.
These shoes were very comfortable from the start. I enjoy wearing them. The mesh keeps a lot of air flowing through, so my foot doesn't sweat as much as with most shoes.
I tried on a pair first in a store, to make sure the fit was accurate, since I have never worn Asics. I got my 'usual' size, so I would say that the fit is true to size.
So far, so good, after about 3 weeks.
Edit* 3 months later
One shoe has developed a small hole where the tip of my big toe is. I mostly wear them for taking walks and wearing out and about, but nothing major. It is unfortunate, because otherwise they are still very comfortable. The mesh is just really thin in that area.
And, I can't return them because it is past the 1 month window.
I have spoken with Amazon's customer service, and they were very helpful in returning the shoe, because I couldn't get in touch with the manufacturer (neither could they).
