**Updated** Boo, toe holes...
on May 18, 2012
I have been suffering with planters fasciitis pain for about a year. I tried inserts, always wearing my Nike running shoes, icing, stretching, nothing was helping. I decided to fork out some money for a good pair of shoes. I am glad I did! When I wear these shoes, I don't have any pain when I walk. I wore a pair of sandals a few days ago and was in pain again afterward. These shoes are a Godsend for me! I'm hopeful if I continue to wear these shoes, I might be able to increase my exercise and hopefully start running!!! Yayyy!!
One of the things I like about these shoes is the heel cushioning. When you push with your finger on the heel, you can actually see the gel absorb the pressure. My daughter gets a kick out of pushing on them! I love the color, very bright and fun! And the cushioning around the achilles tendon is super awesome! :)
All around just a great pair of comfy shoes. I am new to Asics (I usually wear Nike or Adidas) but I think they have found a new loyal customer! I even bought a pair for my daughter who was experiencing some heel pain (Sever's Disease) and they have helped her pain level as well!
I think these shoes may have converted our family to an Asics family!! :)
After wearing these shoes for a couple of months, there is a toe hole forming in my right shoe. This happened not long after wearing them. I am not happy that I spent the money I spent on this shoe to have them practically unwearable after a few months. It did help with my heel pain, but I don't wear these shoes very much anymore, usually around the house. I wear a different pair of Asics (that don't get toe holes!) when I go out. :(
