Bought this shoes for my son. This is the only brand he will wear. We purchase him a new pair every year for his birthday. They last him all year....he wears them every day. His birthday is about the only time we can get him to travel home to visit...we think it is the shoes.

These look really awesome. However, I found out after a few times of wearing them the left shoe is crushing the back of my ankle. They fit fine, it is just the angle that the back of the shoe has is putting pressure on my tendon making it painful to walk/run or wear for days, so I stopped wearing them. Since I ran outside in the mud I figured Zappos wouldn't take them back.

Second time buying these shoes! They are the best pair of shoes I have ever worn. They fit great, look great, comfortable, and last a long time. Will buy again.

I only wear women's Asics running shoes for workouts. I wanted a casual walking sneaker. While these had great arch support, all other aspects of support fell short for me.

These are great shoes! I love Asics because they are so comfortable. I am a teacher and I am often on my feet all day. Sometimes I wear them at work with dress pants when I need extra comfort and support. They actually look good.

Love these shoes. They're super comfortable and look great. They have a slim profile, so they are easily worn with slim pants - which many shoes can't. Get 'em.

Feel great. Very Comfy, being on your feet all day. And very easy to wash. The dark sole doesn't stain, so they can always look fresh and new.
