Thank you for your feedback.
They fit great and are very comfortable.
These shoes keep up the standard of the Asics brand and meet my expectations of what I expect from Asics.
I so badly wanted Nike's because they were cool and came in the best colors BUT.

Plush tongue and collar for added comfort. ComforDryâ"¢ sockliner offers antimicrobial properties for a drier, healthier environment. FluidRide midsole technology delivers a supreme combination of energy return and cushioning with reduced weight and optimal durability. Rearfoot Gel® cushioning system attenuates impacting shock and allows for a smooth transition to midstance. FluidAxisâ"¢ features deep, anatomically correct flex grooves that align with the 33 joints of the foot. It is designed to recognize, adapt and respond to a runner's load and positional change from impact to toe-off. AHAR® (ASICS High Abrasion Rubber) is known for its supreme durability and is strategically placed throughout high-wear areas of the outsole. Imported.

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'm a runner. So I put these shoes through the wringer. I've run recently in rain, in mud, on trails full of rocks, gravel, roots, leaves, and packed dirt. These are the BEST running shoes I've ever had. The fit is superb - at first I thought it was too tight across the middle but once I'm running I don't notice it and whatever it is they've put in this shoe it holds my foot. I feel much more stable in this shoe and have had no issues with my achilles. I've been running in more minimalist type shoes (more accurately low drop shoes) and the last 3 months I've consistently had sore achilles no matter how much I train. This shoe has a 10mm drop and apparently that is the sweet spot for me. My knees do not hurt, my calves are good. I feel like I have more speed. They are cushy but not squishy or marshmallow'y. I'm not fond of "sinking" into a shoe (e.g. Asics Nimbus) as I feel it causes me to have less energy where the shoes are almost a drain on my ability to speed.

    There is plenty of cushion. These are way more cushioned than they appear. If you want complete ground feel ala Merrell barefoot these are not your shoes. If you need some cushion for the roads these are great without having a huge stack height and with still keeping your foot close to the ground. The mesh is breathable and comfortable. There is NOT ONE SEAM to rub or irritate in the toe box. The toe box is wide enough to satisfy even my wider feet. The heel is interesting. It's got a different type of counter - so far it's working but I do have to tighten the laces. It's probably the only area I'd tell Asics to try and improve.

    If you have a high arch, you know that ASICS are awesome. I so badly wanted Nike's because they were cool and came in the best colors BUT.. much to my dismay, not a single pair felt even remotely good at the store. With ASICS, it was love at first step. ;) I once described them as walking on a cloud.

    Since I run quite a bit, I will never know how these hold up. I will have a new pair in 8 months or so. What I can say is they feel awesome and I don't just run in them; I hike, do drills, walk to coffee, etc... They are a very good "all round" shoe.

    They breathe nicely and are not too heavy, I highly recommend for high arches.

    These were great running shoes that I have been wearing twice a week since mid-August (we're in mid september now). The treading on the right foot is already coming off. That's pretty poor performance for something that's not being used that aggressively. Really hoping someone from asics reads this as I am happy to provide pictorial proof!

    I'm in love with these shoes! Wear them to the gym and everywhere else. They are light and make running easy. Great support. From first day on I didn't have blisters even, so that was an extra bonus. They look great, probably even better than the photo. My toes have room and don't get tingly while working out. My feet don't get too hot either. Probably the best running shoe I've had in years.

    Always wear Asics walking 5 mi @ day. Thought it might be a good idea to pay for a more expensive pair for more support but my reasoning was incorrect. These are okay for daily wear but I can't wear them for my walking work outs. Seem to have less support and cushioning than my old Asics venture 4. Also seem too wide and offer less side to side support. But I like the way they look and will wear them for errands, etc. In the future I will stick with the tried and true!

    Great shoes! I've run about 80 miles in these so far and they are great. Lightweight, but I don't think much cushion is sacrificed for that. Fits so well on my foot. I've also had no toenail issues since running in these. I rotate these, Nike Pegasus, and Asics Gel Electro 33s (like to keep my feet guessing). Out of those 3, I look forward to putting these on the most. They didn't take long at all to break in. My first run was 3-4 and it was like I've had them for awhile. My second run was 8 miles, and foot felt a little achy - maybe getting used to the arch I think.

    Shoes are great, comfortable and light. Exactly what I had been searching for. Not clunky and help with my under pronation by helping me run more neutral. Only had for a couple months so I am hoping they will hold up to the wear and tear. I only use these for running.

    I use these running shoes for my short runs and track runs and they work well. not a ton of support, but I use my custom insoles inside. they are like slippers, very flexible, but still quite comfortable for me.
