Great shoe - narrow enough in the heel for me with a wide foot bed to accommodate bunions!

I use these at the gym, mostly on the treadmill, and already since they've arrived I've had much less leg pain. I wear a women's 10.5 with an extremely high arch and didn't have to break these in at all, though I've noticed some numbness in my little toes after a really long run. I have another similar pair I use for work and those are also comfortable, but I love the color on these so much I'm making them gym-only so they don't get as dirty.

This is my third pair of Asics. They are very comfortable all day. I just wish that I could wear them to work. The width is very true to size but the length seems to be a bit shorter than normal. I ordered half a size larger than normal and they are perfect. I am a walker and the gel makes walking on pavement a breeze. I highly recommend them.

This product was recommended by my podiatrist to alleviate a knot on my foot. The shoes are very comfortable, give me lots of support, and the knot is gone.

I have had these shoes for about a month and so far I still like them. They provide good support and cushion. I use them for Jazzercise. The sole is probably better for a running shoe. We do quite a bit of pivoting and that is sometimes difficult with this type of sole but I manage to work around that. There is plenty of room in the toe box and the heel fits well also. I ordered my normal size and they fit perfectly.
