    I have the charcoal /electric blue version, which has the white rubber sole. They are wonderfully light and fast, but also give good support. I was really happy with the way they felt, however after only 3x40 min runs there is substantial wear evident on the heel - indeed, about one third of the AHAR rubber has already worn away. I am a light, efficient runner - and a 20+ year ASICS user - and have never had this problem before, even with ASICS lightweight shoes. Maybe the black rubber soles are more robust? Anyway, I will try a few more runs to see what happens - however, if my experience so far is any guide they will have worn through the top layer of rubber within a couple of weeks - in which case they will be winging there way back to ASICS for comment!

    Just ran my first four miles in these shoes. Early take is that they are super light, springy, and comfortable shoe. Great cushion and a tight fit for the sides. I have wide, flat feet and these shoes felt like I wasn't wearing anything. The only complaint I have is the plastic on the upper and side. The design of the shoes where the first lace is threaded is a little brittle and rubbed in the beginning. I suspect that this will disappear as they are broken in. Overall, very good shoe. I paid $73.95 for the apple green/blue version at a military base exchange, so don't expect to pay much more.

    I really like these shoes, but at 6' 200lb I need a bit more impact protection. This might just mean that these great shoes aren't perfectly suited for me. I love the light, cushioned, and the minimalist feel with some forgiveness, but I need a bit more as I'm not a "light" runner.

    My requirements: I run for about 3-5 miles about 1-2 times a week on the treadmill or on the road or running track. I was looking for light weight shoes with some cushioning for my feet and at a less than $100 price.

    To begin with, let me just say that I went for a 4 mile run with the Asics on and had an amazing experience. These are my first pair of Asics and I just love the new experience.

    Fit- The shoes fit well and are extremely comfortable for my requirements.

    Comfort- In fact, I have been wearing other shoes and running for about 4-5 years now, but no shoe has even come this close in terms of running comfort. The shoes are also extremely light and which makes long distance running less of a pain than with heavier shoes. The lesser weight also helped me to run faster and finish before my normal average times.

    Durability- This is something I would be testing over the next couple of months and maybe come back and update. Right now, the shoes do look durable and tough and I think they might last me 12-15 months- just about what other shoes running shoes have lasted me in the past.

    Look/ Style: I purchased the Black/ White/ Onyx shoes and they look great- which is an added advantage. The white sole gives a very sleek, compact and stylish look to the shoe

    Price- the price of the shoe is fantastic and it offers extremely good value for the price.

    Recommendation: I would be buying another pair in a couple of months. I would recommend these shoes to anyone looking for light weight running shoes.

    Size: 14 D(M) USColor: Charcoal/Black/Electric Blue Verified Purchase
    First things first, you may need to order one size bigger. I normally wear Men's 13, exceptions have been size 14 in Nike and Under Armor. After reading reviews, I took a gamble and ordered these shoes in a 14 since I couldn't try them on first. The gamble paid off, size 14 fit was the right size for this shoe.
    These shoes are ridiculously lightweight to me . They don't feel like they weigh any more than my Adidas flip flops. In contrast, my work boots weigh about 7 lbs.
    They breath very well. All of the grey around the front is a mesh material that you can see your foot through.
    If you need a reflective shoe, this is it. Almost all of the silver around it is reflective.

    My one issue with this shoe is the sole. I think it's too soft. I can feel more through it than I would like to, such as small rocks, when running on the paved jogging path I'm on most. It was enough for me to give this shoe 4 stars instead of 5, but it wasn't so bad that I quit wearing it.

    This is the third time I have bought this pair of shoes. The reason I keep buying these shoes is because they have been a perfect combination of fit and weight for running long distances. They fit my feet like an extra pair of socks. The weight is less than many other running shoes I have tried, but still manages to provide me the support necessary for long runs. The lack of a solid piece from the sole of the shoe up the back keeps my heel has resulted in my never having blisters from these shoes.

    All in all, one of the best pairs of shoes I have ever worn. Unfortunately, after running a few hundred miles in them, I have replace them twice a year.

    This is the 2nd pair of these shoes that I have purchased. They fit great, very light and last a long time. I am not a runner, but I try. These shoes have helped prevent shin splints and are very forgiving on old, long legs.

    I am a big fan of ASICS running and training shoes, as it is my go to brand. I purchased these with hopes of replacing my other athletic shoes. When I put these on, the forefoot was entirely too narrow for my foot. At this point, I wore the shoes for less than an hour before taking them off with intent of returning them. I have since purchased two other pairs of ASICS that work better for my foot type.
