Best Running Shoes I've owned,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: ASICS Men's GEL-Cumulus 12 Running Shoe (Apparel)
A little about me, I'm a regular runner, cover 5 miles 2 or 3 times a week, 6'2 190 lbs with high arches and narrow feet. I have tried most of the New Balance, Nike, Adidas running shoes atleast once and I must say the very first time I put on these Asics, it was like heaven! I am a mid-foot striker so I like a lot of fore-foot cushioning and most shoes seem to load all the cushioning in the heel, not these Asics. My only con would be that I need one more eyelet to keep the shoe firmly in place for me (very narrow heels). I've had these for a little over a month and have seen no drop off in cushioning or ride. I do have some after market insoles that I always use and swap out every 6 weeks. For bigger guys with high arches, I couldn't think of a better shoe.
