ASICS offers a stable ride with remarkable reflectiveness for low light runners.
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 a fairly thick body frame, weigh ca. 180 lbs, my feet are somewhat overpronated, and I attack the ground with my heel first when running -- this is why I need a lot of protection and a solid base in a shoe or else I risk an injury. The new Cumulus delivers what I need. Although I should probably wait another couple of months before making a definite judgment on how much punishment the shoe can take, I can say already that it is well-designed and well-made, and so far it looks like good buy.
About the size: the shoe does tend to run small compared to other brands. When I first put it on, I was afraid I would need to send it back. But after I gave it a try, I actually decided that it is good for size, but snug. In particular, the upper lining in the back is high and thickly padded, pushing your heel a bit forward. But when you are running rather than standing, your body leans forward a little, so the angle at the ankle joint changes, and so does the shoe fit. If you want a shoe that holds your foot tight for protection and a balance, it really should not be very loose. If you do want it lose, order half a size larger than usual.
About the laces: they are kind of short. Again, no complaint there: I actually prefer them short in running shoes, so that don't drag or bounce. Also, if you tie your shoes tight, you would obviously end with more lace to tie with.
About the stitching and sole: the outsole is solid, bends well for all the gel they put in it, offers a good grip on asphalt, dirt, and gravel. The stitchings are nice; in the pair I got there were no loose ends, excess glue, etc. so the build quality looks good.
It may be due to my favorite running socks being exceptionally thin on the top of the foot, but I still don't think this should be happening. These are the socks I use: http://www.amazon.com/Resistor-Socks-Under-Armour-black/dp/B004NLHXL6/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1408116308&sr=8-1&keywords=under+armour+running+socks
I'm probably 50-60 miles into them and still experiencing this.
UPDATE - Again, the style and color are actually the best I've ever had, however, they aren't working for me. After 130 miles in 6 weeks, I have not been able to stop the back and leg pain. As much as I really want to like these shoes, I'm to the point that I have to go back to Mizuno Brand. Having said all of this, everyone is different, so I don't think it's the shoes, especially at $100 price tag, but for some reason, I can't continue to wear them for running. I'll wear them around town, just not for running!
Update, these are incredibly comfortable, just bought the 16s today. Just couldn't bring myself to buy any other shoe despite only getting 200 miles put of the Cumulus 15 very disappointed in the longevity, I hope the Cumulus 16 will last more miles. If not it will be my last pair of asics.
208.5 miles to be exact, the rubber at the heel is gone worn completely through into the foam.
