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 am editing this review to add: I have tried both the pink/gray color and the blue/white color. The blue/white shoes seem to run a bit smaller than the pink/white shoes and gave me blisters in the toe area. The materials in the pink/white shoe seem to be more flexible, and the toe area seems wider than the blue/white shoe. I'm not sure how that can be, since they are the same exact model and size only just different colors (maybe they are manufactured in different places???). I have not tried the purple version of this model.
These shoes follow on in the Gel Pulse tradition (three years now; this version is the third release in the Pulse line), with incredibly soft, almost pillowy, insoles that are immediately comfortable from the first wear. This particular model runs a bit on the small side, and I've had to purchase them at half a size larger than normal (although I have a somewhat wide foot, as well as a high arch), but they are ridiculously cushioned to where you feel you are walking on gel, much more so than Asics' Cumulus, or even their Neo Walker, models. And although they are labelled as "running" shoes, the cushioning and comfortable fit also makes them ideal for walking (although the Neo Walker 2 will have a more supportive side and heel). As I say, they will run a little small, so consider purchasing a half size larger than normal, and they will take a day or two of break in before you really feel the comfort on the tops and sides (the soles will feel amazing, however, the first second you put them on.)
They are one of my favorite shoes. I highly recommend them. Five stars.
