I have several pairs of these shoes and love them for Turbofire, Chalean Extreme, Turbokick, or any other class you want to do. The Intensity is my favorite; however, these shoes provide the most bang for the buck. They provide lots of lateral support and cushioning. I use Superfeet Green insoles in them as a precaution as I have had bouts of Plantar Fasciitis in the past. These are excellent shoes for fit and comfort but not pretty shoes. As the old saying goes, "pretty is as pretty does." These are highly recommend!

I thought this shoe was going to be orange and white. It is really pink and white. I was disappointed when I opened them because on the web page, they look very orange

Excellent cross-training shoe. I have trouble with fit often since my heel is narrow compared to the rest of my foot Asics has a narrow heel that doesn't slide and rub. I normally wear a 6.5, but with a thick sock I bought these in a 7.5. An 8 might have been even better. Love them!

These were just what I was looking for. I've bought many Asics over the years, and these didn't disappoint. Very comfortable as well.

This is the second time I have ordered from Zappos. It is so easy to order and/or return through them. Delivery both times was faster than they had stated. I am Canadian but have a Florida address as well and I had them delivered to my US address when I am on holiday, so I only know how fast the US deliveries are. US Prices are also one of the main reasons I order in the US. Worthwhile savings over the same item in CDN stores. Thanks for great service and I will be a future customer.

Truly comfortable and fits exactly as hoped. The color is a wee bit bolder than shown in the photographs, but it's quite pretty just the same. The most amazing thing is the free shipping, along with the fact that the shoes arrived the very next day! I can't thank Zappos enough! You are my shining star!

I was a bit apprehensive about ordering a pair of shoes online which I had not tried on before. But, since practically nobody carries cross-trainers anymore, I went for it -- and I am very pleased with my decision! The shoes not only arrived earlier than expected, but they were in beautiful condition. These shoes are so comfortable and are also visually appealing. They're great for the gym, a nice jog, and even fitness class (zumba, salsa, kickboxing, etc). Thank you for great service!

Working outdoors in Floirda you need shoes that keep your feet cool during the summer and these do the trick. They felt great right out of the box.

I was a little hesitant to buy this shoe but, now I love it. Mostly I use them at the gym which, it has held up perfectly so far. Knowing that I can do over 6 miles and my feet won't hurt or feel sore is a very good feeling. Thanks Zappos and Asics.

These shoes are a perfect fit. I have worn Asics, and they give me the support and comfort that I need for my foot and knee problems. The only drawback of these shoes is that they don't provide adequate arch support. The insoles can be removed, so I will take them out and use my own orthotics, which provide the right amount of arch support. Overall, I give these shoes 5 stars!

I love this shoe and the regular width fits my wide foot. I ordered these a half size bigger and they fit perfectly. They are extremely comfortable and perfect for my long walks with the dog and physical therapy.

So comfortable. I have a wide foot so had to order the EE as the wide wasn't enough. My feet and knees feel very supported.

I have purchased 8 or 10 pair of Asics sneakers. This was one of the best pair I've worn. True to size, easy to get on and light. I walk 3 miles 4 to 5 times a week and didn't have to "break it in."

I love these shoes. They were recommended to me by my podiatrist and have helped me to avoid a bunion surgery for the time being. They have fantastic arch support and have a roomy toe box to accommodate my EE feet. I had previously worn nothing but New Balance but I think that in the future I will be purchasing more pairs of Asics Gels!

Lightweight, comfy, good support. Gel allows you to stand on your feet all day long. Eliminates knee and foot pain. Best shoe ever!

These shoes are much cheaper than the Asics Nimbus, and the cushioning is almost as awesome (very close). They have great spring in the step and will be great to reduce joint pain when running. These shoes are a great bargain.

As with all the shoes I have purchased from Zappos, I am delighted. Your customer service far surpasses any company that I have done business with. I will always use Zappos because I can find the perfect shoe for the hard to fit foot, whether it's a wide or, like my grandsons, size 15's. You are to be commended for your inventory as well as the excellent employees that work for you. I have always been treated with respect and consideration and felt that I was important by the person at the other end of the phone line. Thank you Zappos!

It runs small and narrow. I ordered a 1/2 size larger & in "wide" but it still didn't fit. I love the look & gel support so will see if I can exchange for even larger size. I wear a 9 D in New Balance & looks like I will wear a 10 2E width in Asics Gel.

Brands I'd also recommend: New Balance - comes in widths & good for feet.

Order a half size up or your toes will be cramped. Be prepared for a shoe that hugs your feet across the arch area (I pulled on mine to stretch them out a bit), while the toe box is roomy. The gel soles are like walking on cushions, which is what I need for some inflamed tendons I am nursing. In fact, this is the only shoe I can consistently wear right now!
