About me: I'm a casual runner--a handful of miles a week if that. My exercise includes jogging, sprints, calisthenics, interval style work-outs and weights. I like to use the same shoe for everything and while a cross-trainer is most likely better suited for my needs I prefer running shoes and haven't had any problems. About the shoe: I purchased a size 7 wide with the bright orange accents. The orange is very bright: think neon. I happen to like this as orange is a color I like and the appearance of the shoe is invigorating... I went with the wide because previous reviews mentioned the shoe runs narrow and I have a somewhat wide foot. Feel... Fabulous. Roomy toe box gives enough room for my toes, good support throughout my movements, and excellent cushioning when I strike the ground. Previously, I wore Brooks GTS 12 size 7 wide & I enjoyed that shoe very much as well, though, if purchasing Brooks again I'd go with a normal fit because I feel that model runs wide. Zappos is a phenomenal site with excellent selection and superior customer service that is second to none.

The shoe looks great but when I tried on my normal size 9.5 medium width it was so snug, the shoe was stiff, and it felt like a trail sneaker. The inside cushioning feels up to quality. If you have a narrow foot maybe you ll like this shoe. In the picture it looks great but in person it looks cheaply made. I always have trouble finding sneakers but I've mostly worn Nike the more flexible ones not the stiff narrow air max tailwind series. Most recently Nike dual fusion and pegasus 28 models. The newer models are never made like the last great ones. Recently I tried the Brooks adrenaline gts 12 in wide width, The 9.5 medium gave me foot pain where I over pronate on the out side of the food, and the wide width fixed that. What a great ride, the sneaker does most of the work as you walk, it rolls of the ground. Good luck in your search. I love zappos super fast service!

These shoes were comfortable right out of the box. I have to wear custom-made orthotics and these are perfect. I bought the color for a reason. I live on a crazy-busy road and need to be seen. These do not disappoint. I have another pair in a more sedate color to wear around because they so comfortable and keep my feet and knees happy. They did feel a tad large but that is okay for me because I need that for the orthotics.

I'd also recommend: New Balance

These are great shoes for the price. I have been a long standing customer of Asics running shoes. However, I purchased these shoes for walking the dog around the neighborhood 2 to 3 miles per day. They were comfortable from the first wearing. Light weight and supportive. The price is terrific! Less than I would normally spend on a running shoe. For knocking around these are perfect and I love the color!

I wanted to like these - fun colors and great price. I severely over pronate and these did stabilize my ankle. I just don't know if I have the faith in them to last like my Mizunos (I'm training for a 10-mile run and need shoes that will last). The biggest negative to these shoes though, has to be the laces. They're thin, short, and flat. They make your foot look like it's too fat to be in the shoe (and I'm a size 5.5 shoe with thin ankles and feet). Unfortunately, these were returned.

I am writing a review after having this pair of shoes for just over a year. I'm writing because while I really liked the shoe for running (I jog about 2-3 miles 3 times a week), I'm not a competitive runner, enjoying a leisurely jog partially on asphalt road and dirt/gravel paths through a park. I liked the shoes very much when I purchased them, having listened to the reviews that say they run rather narrow, so I believe I bought an 8 and 1/2 wide. The only complaint and that is why I am writing this review is that the outside tread of each shoe has really worn down. I had a previous gel model, much older than this pair, and the outer tread has not worn down as much. Perhaps jogging half the year during nice weather results in tread wear, but I think this seems more than I would have expected. I can't use the newer pair as my feet lean toward the outside of my step, so I'm looking for another new pair. I'll stick with Asics, but wanted to mention this as I didn't expect to be paying for more shoes a year later.

I bought these to replace the Kahana 3's that I've had for years. I work retail and had come to rely on Asic shoes for very hard to fit feet. I use custom orthotics and wear heavy socks and the Kahana 6's are still too wide across the ball of the foot and the heel was wide as well. Seems Asics has lost the recipe for these. I figured they would stretch out even more in a short time so, unfortunately, am having to return them. I may have to go back to a Brooks shoe.
