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 had my patellar tendon repaired 14 months ago and my surgeon told me if I wanted to start running I could. Slowly. I misplaced my other shoes, but I'd had them since I was 15, so going for last season's shoes at a discount seemed like a good way to slowly get back 14 years of atrophied quads. I've had Osgood schlatter disease since I was ten. For those unfamiliar, it's a common growth related condition that happens to adolescents during growth spurts, often affecting athletes. I played soccer and had to stop at 11. My patellar tendon took off a few chunks of my tibia. For most, it stops hurting in 6 months to 2 years. For me, it got worse. Thus my quads were a little wimpy. I haven't been able to run or jump since I was 10 without being in excruciating pain. So I finally has surgery at 24. And now my surgeon says I can run again. I check out the reviews for these shoes, get them, wear them for a few days around the house, walk in them, to the store, around running errands, and ease into a few walk/runs between. 75 and 1.25 miles. My feet and calves are absolutely killing me.
Not my quads. My calves. My muscular calves. I went slow. With my dog. Averaged 4 mph, max 6.5 mph. My normal walking speed is almost 3.5 mph.
My toes hang off the edges of these. I got a 12.5.im normally a 12-13 in shoes and so a 12.5 should be plenty roomy. I checked with reviews to see what people were saying, made sure they don't run small.
I can run faster in my TOMs with less pain. Or my sandals. Something is funky with the support in these that makes them painful, and makes my feet and calves just want to lock up. I know I'm not going to have good form and I need to build up strength in things that haven't been used for 15 years, but something isn't right with these. They're fine to walk in. Super comfortable for walking. But horrid for running. I'm going to keep trying because I'm not going to go far, and maybe just maybe it will feel better soon. Sheesh, how do people run? I haven't been missing anything all these years, have I?
This specific model, the Cumulus 14, seems much different than both past and future versions. The previous model, the Cumulus 13, seemed more roomy in the toe box with more cushioning all over, and it seems like Asics reverted back to that when they made the Cumulus 15s.
I am an underpronator and prefer semi-supportive shoes with moderate cushioning, a.k.a. the Gel Cumulus. While the Cumulus 14 did OK in the stability category, I found it severely lacking adequate cushioning.
I might suggest the newer Cumulus 15 if you are looking for the traditional feel of the Gel Cumulus.
