I bought these shoes for my job, which entails a lot of running around and climbing on shelves - I work in a warehouse - and for walking my dog. These were great initially - tons of cushioning, and they molded to my foot perfectly. Just recently, however, I wore through the inner front part of the sole area (where the big toe is) on both shoes - so much so that I'm limping by the end of the day. Four months seems a little too short of life for shoes. I usually can get around six months of wear from my shoes. Maybe I was just too hard on them, but either way, buyer beware. If you are on your feet a lot and give them a good pounding daily, I would look at something more durable. If you are looking for more casual wear, these are perfect. Pretty sad these didn't last longer, but they were pretty inexpensive, I guess.

I tried twice, but could not get either pair to work. I even tried mixing and matching. On the first pair, I could see that the sole was not properly placed on the right shoe. On the 2nd pair, there was just something poking me a bit on the right shoe in the heel area. I have bought Asics for years, and I will still stand by them, but something may have happened to the quality recently.

I have a moderately wide foot and these shoes fit me perfectly. Zappos does a great job shipping quickly and returns are not a hassle.

Nice looking shoes! I bought these for my husband and he's very happy with them! Look great, feel great, & what a value! Love shopping at Zappos. Everything I have bought over the years has been as described. Shipping is fast & reliable. What more can I say?

I recently developed a sharp pain in the arch of my foot but wasn't sure why. Turns out it was my old pair of shoes which I will never wear again. Switched to these about a week ago and my foot pain has healed entirely. I'm working out again with zero problems, where before it was simply my day to day movements that were causing me pain. Comfortable, a nice bit of bounce in the sole, and excellent arch support. I think I'm an Asics man from here on out.

Great shoe. I love Asics sneakers. I buy a pair every 7-8 months. If you find a pair that fit you well and the style you like, you will never go back to anything else.

The silver is a little too shiny for me, but overall the style is fine. I chose the shoe to be wider than normal, and for me the width and the easy fit is what hooked me to this shoe.

I recently purchased this shoe and I'm so happy with them. The first time that I wore them I walked over 6 miles and my feet felt great at the end. I would definitely recommend them to anyone that has foot problems.

These shoes look good and are quite comfortable. The only downside is that the front third of the shoe seems to fit wider than the back two thirds which makes it feel sloppy when running.

I was a bit disappointed with the lack of sole support. The sole pad is thin and you can feel "bumps" through it. Other than that, a good shoe for the price.

This is great shoe at a great price! I'm a big guy and finding shoes that fit can be hard so I saw this came in a 4E and was glad. Buy this shoe! I love it.

My husband wears an 11 4E width. Finding shoes that are the correct size and feel good is not an easy task! He usually wears New Balance but we tried these and are please with the fit and comfort. He does a lot of walking on concrete at work and the the gel soles are great. His only complaint was that the shoe laces could have been a little longer. Wider widths need a little longer lace. The laces tied but there was not room to do a double knot.

Extremely comfortable and lightweight. If you are looking for a good all around athletic shoe, you should take a serious look at the Asics GEL-Express 3. And let's not forget the stellar customer service that is found no other place on the planet than zappos.com!

I'm pleasantly surprised at the level of comfort of these shoes. I didn't expect this width of shoe to fit as well as they do- as I sometimes wear a wider shoe. Standing all day at wok, my feet feel good wearing these shoes. I'll probably get another pair for working out as well.

Even at extra wide, these shoes were tight around my toes. I really wanted to like these, but I knew I'd get blisters. Great ankle support, no slippage. Length was true to size.

Too tight/narrow. I wear 4E and is okay in other shoes. This one restricted, though not as much as the "ASICS GEL-170 TR." By loosening the laces, I was able to get it on my foot, but it was very snug. The cushioning felt great. If they made a wider size, I'd definitely try it. I've tried two ASICS, and each was too tight/narrow compared to what I usually wear.

Anyone can find deals at discount shoe warehouses, but it's always a limited selection. Zappos.com carries a much broader array of styles, sizes and prices. My third order!

I purchased these shoes to wear both at work on a concrete floor and sometimes out walking a blacktop one mile long walking trail. I normally where Asics Gel Equation 3's for my everyday after work shoes but have found these are almost as comfortable. Like my other Asics shoes, they run true to size. Comfortable and look nice. A good combination! Would recommend them.
