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.

    Size: 10 D(M) USColor: Navy / White / Yellow Verified Purchase
    I have had issues with my knees, calves, Achilles, feet for over 2 years. I had to stop jogging because of the pain. Many days I was walking with a cane because of what I assumed was either gout or broken bones in my toes. I had been to a knee specialist and the last visit I was referred to another specialist for knee replacement. This wasn't because of running it was only because of the daily pain from walking. To me, knee replacement was not an option. During my research on knee issues I came across articles on over pronation. I started looking up shoes and chose these shoes because of features and price. I have never had ASICS before and was very cautious but most reviews on over pronation had many models of ASICS shoes listed. From the minute I walked with these shoes on, the pain stopped. I am not exaggerating at all. I have had these for about a month now and not the slightest of pain. I am cautiously considering some short jogs.

    Better than I expected for the price. I'm a heavy heel striker with moderate pronation, and the shoes have made my feet feel better than shoes I had purchased that were made for my "situation." I'm in no position to be authoritative, but they work for me, and that's all that matters right now.

    I am an overpronate when i walk or run. Due to this I had injured my ACL, MCL and Meniscus. I had a knee surgery a few years back. I was suggested to just walk and not put much pressure. Recently, I started with a light jogging. This shoe is made for people like me. Fits perfectly and light as a feather. Next up, I will go with an advanced version of ASICS.

    I haven't bought ASICS in a long time. Usually I have another brand that I'm sure of the fit. (My biggest problem with shoes is my high arches.)
    I bought a pair of ASICS before I purchased these. The arch support was more than I thought it would be. (It was good.)
    That being said, I purchased these. (I liked the look & the price was good.) Although the support was there, I was surprised at the weight.
    I have had slippers in the past that were heavier and not as comfortable. GOOD DEAL.

    I saw the clown-colored version of these shoes on a discount rack for $65, but they were a size too big.
    I bought and wore them anyway, and the shape of the lasting of the insole brought me back for a proper size for running. Enough cushioning for my heavy frame but the neutral/pronation lasting that I needed.

    I miss my Kayanos, but I am not running near my old 25 mile a week training so this shoe is the perfect compromise for cost and fit.

    Great shoe for me to work in I'm a nurse and do lots of standing, walking, and a bit of running. No sore feet or knees at the end of the day. I tend to over-pronate and these help with that as well. This is my second pair and I watch for sales to get more as back-ups

    Size: 14 D(M) USColor: Lightning / Royal / Black Verified Purchase
    I tried a 13 on in Kohls, all they had, and like the fit and feel, but these days I'm usually ending up with size 14 or maybe 13.5 if available. So I ordered a pair of size 14 on Amazon. So far the are great. I've not gave them a great workout yet, but I anticipate no issues. They are a D width, but are narrow for a D. But for me that is great because I have torpedo's attached to my ankles and often my feet swim in size D. So if you are snug in a D, these will probably be too snug for you. The 13's at Kohls and these 14s feel the same way so I think it is common to all sizes. I saw another reviewer comment like that as well. As for length, it really depends on the manufacture of the shoe. I wear both 13 and 14, just depends on the type of shoe and/or who made it. I have an ASICS shoe that I use in the gym (weights and elliptical) that has lasted for years. I'm finally replacing them because I can't imagine the inner sole support hasn't decayed, although they still feel very good on my feet. I have high arches, so I may add a little additional arch support to these at some point, but for others, that may not be a factor. Five stars for now, anticipate no changes.

    I was pronating badly on my left feet and started aching near the heel area.

    After getting these, pain did not get worse after runs (2-3 miles average). I only wished that I have gotten these sooner so there would be less injuries on my body.
