I have purchased ASICS shoes in the past but have gone to other running shoes just for the looks of them. Well, I am back to ASICS and am never leaving again. I have issues with over-pronating and these shoes were stated to be a good shoe for that, maybe that's why my feet in the past felt so good, I just never knew why. This is an extremely light weight shoe that never makes my feet feel tired..I work in healthcare and purchased another pair for work only. I am sold on ASICS forever!

I have plantar fasciitis and these offer great support and are light weight so are particularly comfortable. WARNING: Amazon's sizing is not accurate and even though Amazon said the length of the shoe was for a 28cm foot, when I received them it actually said 29cm on the tongue of the shoe and yes, they are slightly too big for me. I will add an inner sole to the shoe and they should be a bit better however when I already wear a Size 12 womens and buy the Size 13 because the measurement was wrong, it's very annoying - as if I needed to make my feet look any bigger than they already are!!! I live in Australia and returning them is not practical. I love Asics shoes - every time I buy any other brand I regret it and go back to Asics - for my money, nothing beats them. I just use my shoes for everyday wear around the house and walk about 2 miles a day for exercise.

I have been wearing this style Asic for about three years now, after purchasing my first pair at a runners' store. I use them for daily one hour walk and replace about every 8 months. As others have said, they are light weight and good for pronators. The price is very good. I wear a 10 1/2 which is hard to find--many manufacturers do not make that size at all. This pair feels a little short though. Maybe its just the difference between a new shoe and a broken-in one.

I've been running for 30+ years. I gave up my Nike Air Max's and my Mizuno Wave Runners for Asics and have not looked back. They are supportive, fit my feet well, fit my orthotics without the shoe feeling like it is falling off, and they last longer than my other shoes. And they look nice. Great shoe! They are also true to size, at least in my case, whereas I always had to go a 1/2 size up in Nikes.
