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 also agree with the reviewers who stated that the laces come undone very easily. I tied knots as tightly as I could but I still had to adjust or retie after each mile. My advice is to definitely swap the laces out for a different pair.
I also have little to no arch and I didn't feel that these supported me well at all. They do have removable insoles so you could replace them with an arch support, though. I am not going to bother due to the poor fit and will be giving them to a friend with very narrow feet.
I'm have trouble with my ankles and bought these for support while walking. Gel soles won't wear down and offer more cushioning as I step. The back is a bit high, but there is a cut out so my Achilles didn't rub. The top part of the sides are cushioned. The main part of the shoe is mostly mesh, making it lightweight. I didn't wear them enough to sweat in them, but I imagine my feet would have stayed drier than a full leather shoe. I wore them around my house for a bit and they were almost exactly what I wanted. Almost.
I do not typically need wide with shoes. The first pair I ordered were very narrow and hurt my little toe. I exchanged them for a half size bigger and had the same issue, but with more room for my big toe. With no option for wide width in my size, I had to move to a different style. I love Asics. The shoe design and the support are great. This was going to be my third pair. Try this style on in a store if you can to avoid multiple returns.
I've never tried Asics before. I've always been a Nike Shox kinda girl.
Well, after getting these I may never buy Nike again!
The funky highlighter yellow was the spunky safe shoe i was looking for.
I love,love,love this shoe!
So far I've only run 5miles a day for the last Week in them. I'm not sure how the quality will hold up for a marathon but definitely will get yu through a 5to 10k no problem.
Only negative for me are these darn flat laces.
They come untied very easily.
You've gotta put a runners knot or tuck them in.
The picture is of the original 8.5 (bottom, pink/green) I ordered next to my same-sized old Asics (top, grey/teal/purple). When I got the new ones in a 9.5, they were the same size as the old ones.
