Not the best, but I still love them!,
Amazon Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: ASICS Men's GEL-Cumulus 12 Running Shoe (Apparel)I am 6'-6" and 240lbs and run marathons....Its easy for me to flatten a normal cushioning shoe and wear it out fast. I did however get 425 miles out of my current ASICS CUMULUS and the tread is still nice and thick...I will however change them out as I am sure I broke the cushioning out long ago with my fat arse. I only got 300 miles out of the Saucony Hurricanes before wearing down the tread so these are better.
This shoe is a bit 'soft' from what I am used to, but well cushioned. Almost like driving a Cadillac. Because of all the cushioning the shoe feel heavier and wider. However compared to a lot of other shoes I've tried, these seem to do me the best all-around comfort-wise and I like to race in these. For training I do prefer something a bit stiffer cushioning to hold up to the endless weekly mileage like the Saucony Progrid Rides and Glides.
Be aware this is a neutral, cushioning shoe....not for overpronators.
Someone lighter than me might not find it soft, but this review is for the heavies out there.
