First of all, I am not a runner. I bought these for working out at home and for my occasional walks/runs outside with my dogs. I have high arches and have been having some pain in my heel in my recent months and figured my other shoes were getting broken down. I have worn Under Armour shoes the last couple years, but decided to give Asics a shot this time and I'm really glad I did. I do Jillian Michael's workout DVDs and in my old shoes my feet were slipping out of them in plank positions and making it hard for me to keep form in my workouts. Also, I had been getting pain in my heel and shins during the cardio, especially the jumping. These shoes have been a huge relief to my issues. No more slipping in plank, no more pain in my feet or shins, and I find I am doing moves with much smoother mobility. I'm not clunking around. At first when I put them on I didn't think they were going to have the arch support I needed, but after I began my first workout in them I quickly realized I was wrong. Seriously, they were comfortable from the first workout for me!! As for sizing, I wear an 8 in Under Armour and I ordered an 8 in these. They fit great. These shoes fit my foot like a glove. I guess some might think they fit tight, but I have a narrow foot and I'm glad that my foot finally isn't swimming around inside my shoe. The color is awesome, love the brightness, especially during these dreary winter months! I love these so much I want to order another pair and put them away I'm case they don't have them when mine wear out!

I bought both the 8 1/2 and 9. I normally wear an 8 1/2. It was much too small. The 9 is much too big. Plus, for a crosstrainer. There does not seem to be as much support of the outside edges of the toe box.

I love these. They are even better color wise in person. They fit well and are comfortable. I always tear up the toe box area so I double checked these for durability. The material is light and thin. That is great for some, but not so good for me. These are great shoes for people that get happy looking at the color and need support with feeling the least bit clunky. They are not so great if you are hard on the toe box.

Love these shoes! The color is bright and wonderful. The shoe is very comfortable. The first time I wore them they rubbed a little on my heel but that always happens to me with sneakers. I would definitely but another pair.
