Have you ever had to stop running because your feet were hurting? Or you couldn't wait to make it to that 3 mile mark so you can stop because of uncomfortable shoes? That has never happened to me in my Asics Gel-Pulse 3. I started out buying Asics, then tried a few other brands, and ended up going back to Asics because no brand was the same. I do a lot of running and training for sports, so I wear these shoes for long distance runs, sprints, and short lateral movements/change of direction. No matter what type of workout I'm doing my Asics always make it as comfortable as possible. The shoe is very roomy in the toe area so my toes never felt crammed together. They have a lot of cushioning on the heel which helped for running and jogging. These shoes are very durable as well, I put these shoes through a lot and I only buy 2 or 3 of them in a year. The downfall to these shoes are that they aren't very aesthetically pleasing. I bought another pair of tennis shoes to wear for day to day use that are a lot cuter. These are great for runners and athletes.

I was comfortable at first but after about 1/2 hour my feet were killing me. They are nice looking I am trying desperately to find a comfortable sneaker.

These shoes are adequate at best. I was disappointed by both the appearance and fit. The mesh is bright white, with metallic silver and florescent pink trim, far from the colors pictured on the website. The fit is true to size but the shoe lacks cushioning. They aren't uncomfortable but could definitely be a lot better.

I love these shoes! I am on my feet for 8 hours a day and they make my feet feel wonderful! I ordered a size up just because I am kind of in between and 11 and 12. The best part is that I didn't even have to break them in before wearing them all day at work! Highly recommend these!

I'm on a quest to replace "the perfect shoes that got worn out" and this is the closest so far. Out of the box, it seems to have nice cushioning. I wear an 8 or 7.5 and ordered an 8 but it's too big. Too bad Zappos is out of 7.5s.

I wear these shoes to jog on a treadmill and they are very comfortable. I have high arches and find that Asics provide the best arch support for me. They are the only running shoe I buy.

Super comfortable shoes! They ran a bit big on me. I usually wear a 9, which is what I ordered. Depending on the sock, they can feel big, I should have sized a 1/2 size down but I still love them and recommend them. I also have a normal to narrow foot and these are great as I've found a lot of running shoes to be too wide and roomy on me. If you have wide feet, they might now work. Very cushiony and I think they look great with black yoga or running pants/shorts!

This is my third pair of Asics Gel-Pulse. I have worn the Gel-Pulse 2 for two years. They fit well, are comfortable to run in and look great. I have terrible feet and these are the best runners I have tried.

I had been walking 4 miles daily for two years, yet I had never tried Asics before a friend told me that they would help clear up a sudden and first case of plantar fascia. And they did. Now all I wear are Asics, and particularly this model. My only wish is that Asics would make a prettier shoe for exercise. There's no reason why we can look as good as we feel.

I have always been a Nike person, but after these I will never go back. It is like wearing a glove on my feet. I have a bad back and with the arch support my back doesn't hurt as often as it does when I wear other shoes. I highly recommend.

I bought these to replace the original Gel-Pulse. They seem to be very similar, comfortable, good support. I am happy with them so far. FYI, in the photo they look red and grey, but they are definitely hot pink!

These rock, and really help you feel the ground, but don't buy them for everyday sneakers or take them hiking (i made that mistake) or for aerobics classes (i made that mistake as well). They are a RUNNING shoe, so they don't have a ton of support, and are meant to be sleek and comfortable and cushiony, but not overly supportive. They're built for speed! Also, I normally wear an 11 or a 12, but should have ordered an 11.5 or an 11... the 12s are a bit too big. Order a half size to one size down!

Love the Asics Gel-Pulse 3. Very comfortable with excellent support. I bought the shoes so I could walk/run my first half marathon. After 13.1 miles, my feet didn't hurt. And the customer service from Zappos was amazing. Thank you Zappos.

I lvove these shoes! I am a nurse and am on my feet all day. These shoes are very comfortable, and do not make your feet hot. I have bought this same style of Ascis for years now, and have tried other shoes. None even come close to the comfort of these shoes.

One of the things I most like about Asics and especially the Pulse series is their consistency. This was my third Gel-Pulse and they have consistently maintained sizing and the cushion level. Other features I particularly like are the low cut around the ankle bone and it is one of the few shoes that fit my narrow heels well enough. I like the large amount of mesh, keeping the shoe breathable. This shoe doesn't have too much cushioning and the arch support is just right for me.

These are the best running shoes that I have ever worn. I have a high arch and plantar fasciitis and this shoe supports my arch and cushions my feet very well. I will never go back to Nike.

Love this shoe, however, with this style of Asics I had to order a half size bigger than I normally wear. Also, with a discontinued style of Asics I did not have to add extra arch support, with this one I do. Not as flat as some other shoes but definitely not as much arch support as I need with my heel spurs.

Very comfortable for walking/running/working out. I have very wide feet, and these shoes are flexible enough to be comfortable. They also have room to accommodate orthotics, which is great. I would recommend ordering up a full size - Even my short toes needed more room than was provided by my usual 7. Ordered an 8 and it fits great all around.
