Thank you for your feedback.
They fit perfectly and were true to size.
For reference: I run 10-15 miles/ week, weigh 145 lbs, and have a normal arch and foot strike.
I was so excited when the 15's came out because I read a review that they were similar to the older, more cushy, models.

Product Description

Lightweight and responsive, this neutral trainer delivers cushion and comfort mile after mile.

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 honestly LOVE theses shoes However I rated it one star b/c I know most people (myself included) only read the negative reviews.

    I ordered this pair because I already owned a pair that I purchased locally so size was perfect. I LOVED them SO much that I decided to order another exact pair. I felt safe ordering online through Amazon.

    I was shocked that the shoe was WAY TOO SMALL. The box and the shoe both read size 6 which is the same size of my existing pair. I immediately read the negative reviews and came across one who posted the exact same story...and mentioned that they noticed that the two boxes were from two different countries. The reviewer was not specific.

    I drove myself to the local athletic shoe store and showed the manager my two pairs of shoes. (the one I purchased their and was a perfect fit and the one from Amazon) I pointed out that my two pairs came from two different countries. I asked the manager to bring out every size 6 they carried. I had 9 boxed brought out and I tried on ever pair.

    The 9 boxes came from 3 different countries. China, Vietnam and Indonesia. ALL the shoes from China (including my 1st pair) were all a perfect fit. All the shoes from Vietnam and Indonesia (and my 2nd pair from Amazon) were at least a whole size too small.

    Amazon was not able to accommodate my request for a REAL PERSON to cherry pick a pair marked from China, however they were willing to keep returning (at their expense) shoes until I received the correct pair.

    I decided to order a whole size up, size 7, sure enough my 3rd pair came from Indonesia and was a fairly good fit. A tad bigger than my original pair, but I was satisfied.

    Bottom line...
    China=good fit
    Indonesia=too small
    Vietnam=too small

    I would HIGHLY recommend purchasing these great shoes in person if at all possible.

    I have high arch's & a normal width foot & am a distance runner. I had stocked up on the 12's years ago because they were the best shoe ever. I finally wore through my stash training for 4 half marathons & my first full marathon. I never had an injury aside from normal muscle aches. I credit that fully to wearing the proper footwear for my foot & turning them in when they hit their prime. I heard the 13's had a narrow footbed & when I tried on the 14's I felt like there was no side support. I waited until my local sporting good store got the 15's & couldn't wait to try then on!
    I was beyond thrilled with the new Nimbus 15's! I feel like they went back to the basics on this one & restored the shoe to it's awesomeness. It is supportive, cushioned, & attractive. I feel like I'm running on clouds again! I really love the normal lacing that they brought back too! I've taken my 15's on 3 runs so far, & as always with my Nimbus', have not had a single blister. My husband even commented that I should stock up on them & that they were his favorite (as far as looks) of all my running shoes in the past. I got the pink color which is a very neon pinkish coral, which looks great with my red, pink & orange colors that I usually wear. I also tried on a few other recommendations at my local running store (Brooks, Asics Cumulus), but knew from the first try that these were my soul mate shoes again. If you have high arch's I would recommend these all the way! I'm in love with them!

    If you liked the Gel-Nimbus 13's (as so many people do!), then I think you'll love the 15's. I searched and searched for a replacement pair for my 13's and couldn't find any in my size. I tried the 14's and they felt terrible on my feet. I was so excited when the 15's came out because I read a review that they were similar to the older, more cushy, models. I bought them without even trying them on, and I am ecstatic with how they fit :) I have tendonitis in one of my feet and after wearing these on 10 runs now, I have no pain whatsoever.
    To recap: if you like/need a cushioned running sneaker or just liked/loved the gel-nibus 13's, then get the 15's! Thank you asics for bringing back such a comfy shoe!

    Edited to add: I ordered these shoes with regular shipping and they arrived the next day. Yay!

    Size: 7.5 C/D USColor: Lightning/Hot Punch/Marigold
    Let me preface this review by saying: running shoe fit is a very personal thing. This is my first running shoe, and after spending some time trying on various pairs at the store, I strongly agree with others who've told me this. If you're not familiar with the fit of this shoe, in this version or prior versions, I recommend comparing it, on your feet, to to other shoes before you take it outside the house.

    Every online wizard I tried said I needed a neutral shoe, mostly because I am an underpronator (i.e., I tend to run on the outside of my feet). Because I run less than 20 miles per week and am not a heavy person, the wizards were mostly steering me toward neutral shoes with lighter cushion. Every single online wizard I tried suggested the Brooks Ghost and the Asics Gel-Cumulus for me. I tried both of these shoes in the store, and neither kept me from running on the sides of my feet.

    So then I tried the Brooks Glycerin and the Asics Gel-Nimbus (along with some other shoes that I liked less than both of these). For both shoes, the salesman was most pleased with the pairs that were a full size (not just a half size) up from my normal shoe size. Feet swell when you run, so you need the extra room. Plus, I suspect this shoe tends to run a tad small to begin with.

    Once we went a size up, I found the Glycerin too wide for me. Although the toe was the right distance from the front of the shoe, the toe box felt too big. And even with a runner's knot, my heel didn't feel secure. Maybe it was because the shoe wasn't quite snug enough, but I wasn't truly feeling the cushion the Glycerin was known for. It could be I needed a narrow fit in this shoe, but I never got around to trying that.
