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.

lateral stability: 10 out of 10
heal cushion: 10 out of 10
arch support 10 out of 10 (for a training shoe running shoes have more by design)
I use these for doing Beachbody workouts like P90X and Insanity. Insanity is really the reason I purchase cross-trainers though. The biggest difference between running shoes and cross-trainers is that cross-trainers are designed for lateral movement. Doing plyometric exercise in running shoes will allow your foot to slip right or left just a little bit then when your foot eventually catches the side of your shoes it strains your knee causing inflammation. I learned that the hard way and it took time, rest and ice to get better.
I have never found a training shoe that I have purchased twice. Either because I have not liked them enough or the company stops making them. So far I like these enough to purchase them again hopefully Asics continues to make them. I they are still here in 6 months I change the review to five stars.
