Product Description

Runners seeking a lightweight trainer with the feel of a racing flat will enjoy the lightweight cushioned ride of this veteran road shoe. Top performance features include a new breathable upper and a new lightweight Propulsion Trusstic.

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 ran my 1st marathon in the Speedstar 4's and can recall putting them on a few weeks before the run and being so dissapointed that I hadnt purchased them earlier in my training. I had been running in the Asics Cumulus and Asics Nimbus models for years, and these were noticeabley much lighter from the second I put them on my feet. My strides were lighter and faster. Im now in the Speedstar 6's, and still very happy with these sneakers.
    It's also worth mentioning I have had knee problems for years, so I was skeptical about having less cushion in my sneaker. No problems whatsoever in that regard.
    As for the sizing, this style is no different for me than other Asics in the past. Im always an 8.5. Love the Speedstars!

    Last year I bought the Speedstar 5 and I was really happy with it. The speedstar 6 is a comfortable shoe that doesn't need to be broken in. Perfect fit from day 1! I just ran a half marathon and I felt great!

    Wow, I don't know what the gel is made of, but these sneakers REALLY stink! I didn't want to wash them, because I imagine that isn't good for the gel, but they won't air out! They smell like fish!! It's awful! Won't be ordering online again anytime soon... they stunk up my closet! Guess I'll have no choice but to wash brand new shoes...

    A little loose across the toes but a good fit. Love the textured shoe case and LOVE the colour! Very effective design. Great shoe laces. Great for Zumba and other activities with spinning and varied foot movement as they slip just enough to on indoor floors to make movement easy and comfortable.

    I am new to jogging/running. The previous shoes I wore, gave me bad shin splints & I would be in pain for a week. I decided to try some real running shoes & bought these. Success. Have not had any problems & thinking of getting an extra pair.

    Not only are the colors bright and the design one of ASICS better concepts, the running shoes have been the best purchase I have made in the last year. Granted, those with broader feet might find this style a little snug, the durability of the Gel Speedstar 6 with its outer mesh makes the foot seem more secure on less than ideal terrain. Not for rocky surfaces, like mountain trails, the shoe is fine on flat, sandy, or asphalt /concrete areas -especially nice support in grassy paths through parks or fields..

    A few things about my feet for context:
    - they are tragically small, like a size 5/5.5, causing me to often have to buy ill-fitting shoes or resort to children's shoes
    - one foot is a half size bigger than the other
    - they are also tragically wide given their short length
    - they are flat, so I get sharp foot pains from any physical activity that is higher impact than walking, including burpees, jumping jacks, high-knees, running, step aerobics, etcetera

    Fit: these run small. I typically wear a size 5 but found that I am always a 6 in Asics.
    Comfort: the other reviews are right, you don't really need to break these in. They feel stiff at first but I didn't experience any pain from my first few uses that normally would have had me limping (including running on asphalt). Keep in mind I got these with the blue SuperFeet insoles so it might be a tag team effort leading to this success.
    Style: These are a bit on the ugly side for my subdued taste but I liked the fit of previous Asics and the other options were similarly if not more obnoxious.

    These are probably the most comparable to the NIke Free line in terms of looks and the lightweightness but are better for people with wide feet. I have the Nike Free 3s and found them extremely painful. They have more color options though and I got a pair grey/white that is super cute but I pretty much can only wear those when going to brunch on weekends when I pretend to have worked out but really just got too lazy to get dressed for real.

    But back to these shoes: I like them a lot so far and will continue to buy them after these wear out. I hope they come out with some more subtle color, non-flourescent color schemes in the future.

    I really like these! They fit true to size and feel great on my feet! The only thing I don't really like is the white part of the shoe. It gets dirty quite easy and I'm constantly wiping them down after my workouts. But that's probably me being OCD lol.. :) The shoe laces seem a little flimsy. So I bought some neon yellow/green oval strings to match the shoe and I like them much better now! I feel more secure in my shoe when I can tie myself in nice and tight before my circuit classes. Great shoe... you won't be disapointed if you're loking for more of a gym type shoe rather than just a running shoe. this works really good for both!
