These Gels turned out to be a fantastic show for this active 75-year-old who hits the treadmill at the YMCA for 30 minutes every single morning! Thanks Zappos, but you need to set up a website for aging customers to feature shoes that are foot-friendly to aging feet. There is a huge pool out there of aging actives, so set your marketing team to work!

After a few weeks of use, I developed a terrible pain on the side of my lower left leg--shin splints. Pain went away when I stopped wearing the shoes. Probably caused by the extreme cushiness of the heel--foot seems to wobble slightly when taking a step.

I do not run. I am 75 and have bad 11 1/2 AA feet. Running shoes are best for me but most are too wide. So I buy shoes a lot in search of a pair that will fit. Hooray! These fit me and are very comfortable. Love the Orange, my fav color.

Very comfortable and supportive for my various cross-training workouts. One minor comment...the thin mesh fabric in the toebox was an adjustment at first.

Second pair of Asics, but first time getting them from Zappos. Absolute great fit. They do seem a little narrower than my previous pair, but it is fine for my feet (or possibly my previous Asics ran big?) Either way, good support on the heel and the shoes bend the right way when I step off. Love the breathable mesh. Conservative black and silver is a great color combination. Plus, Zappos gave me free overnight shipping. Would buy from again and again!

If you have a wide forefoot with narrower heels, this roomy toe box fits great. If you have normal heels these would work, too. The point is the P.H.F. system surrounds and holds your heel in place--no slipping! Lightweight, breathable, excellent cushioning and supporting platform. Great for light running, gym, short basketball games, riding bikes, walking, every day getting around. Good lateral traction for side to side movement. Would prefer a color other than black, but one thing I knock Asics for is their designs. Wish they would stop using robot silver all together and colors like pea soup green. White with red is not practical to maintain a clean look. I would buy lighter colors if they looked decent. Not sure if Asics will discontinue these, so I bought another pair because I like them so much.

These shoes are at least as good as a pair I bought in the Mall of Georgia for $180 and Zappos price was over a lot less and no shipping cost. The whole transaction took less than three days and the shoes fit perfectly.

The shoe works fine. The depth of the shoe box was a little closer than most athletic shoes. This could be a problem for those using a thick orthotic insert.

I had recently started going to the gym and my leather hi-tops were too hot after a work out. Needing some comfortable shoes to work out in I came to Zappos. After I had ordered them I realized that I had ordered a half size to large. Getting the order changed took a simple phone call. When the shoes arrived and made their way to the gym I found them to be very comfortable and breathable and light on the treadmill and perfect for walking or jogging.

A good looking shoe with plenty of cushion for running, but dont get them if your feet are even a little wide. I ordered a half size bigger than I would normally thinking the width would be ok, but even then they were too tight.

Great product and the sizing is right on, very comfortable right out of the box, at 225 lbs I have no problem running with these cross trainers. very happy. As always, Zappo\'s service is the best in the business, ordered on Thursday, wearing them on Friday.

Good Shoes, lightweight, comfortable. I use them for weight workouts in the gym and they feel good and give adequate support. Also use them for short runs 2-3 miles about 2x a week. So far so good.

These shoes fit great. The size was right on as far as size and width feel. They fit just right and didn't need a "break in" period. Bought them, got them, and wore them without any issues. Great shoe for running (treadmilling) and walking, support is good.

This shoe is very basic. The design is ugly. The fit is fair, but it does rub against my outer foot more than I would like.

Very comfortable shoes. Bit larger than my usual size. I needed to return it to get a 1/2 size smaller one. You can feel the wind through the mesh upper.

These ASICS are good - but I have had better. Replacement for Gel FX and FX2 as a gym cross trainer. High level of cushion, immediately comfortable (both good qualities), but lateral support not as good as had hoped for is a cross trainer. Shoe is no different than any other in the TR line or other ASICS trainers - For those who know the classic comparison of Mercedes vs. BMW: It is the Mercedes Benz of shoes, where the FX/FX2 were the BMW's. As a Mercedes, you lose some feel of the road - you dont feel connected - but it is plush. As a BMW, you are more connected, feeling the bumps and enjoying the performance. Make your choice - cushion or connection. BTW the ASICS Frantic seems a good replacement for the FX2.

Great fit and very comfortable. But I have one big problem with these shoes; they have very poor traction on wet surfaces. I wore these shoes on a cruise and found the wet deck around the pool and damp decking around the ship very slippery. I would not recommend these shoes to anyone who needs to walk on wet surfaces such as smooth concrete or wood and vinyl flooring.
