So I have to agree with those Asics reviews...quality has changed a bit and sizes are less consistent. But they are still the best running shoes available and these FujiRacers are amazing. Well made, very light and better than average arch support for Asics. Love them! May order another pair since they are perfect and who knows how long they will be available!

I have worn Asics for years. This style feels lighter and less sturdy. But after I wore them a couple if times, they are just fine. I would say better for running and wearing on errands, etc. not enough cushioning for walking long distances. Really cute shoe and great colors.

I love these shoes. I was hesitant to buy them, because some of the reviews complained about them being too tight. When I first put them on, they did feel too tight, but when I re-tried them on, they felt much better. I have worn them every day (running errands, doing Cross-Training and Boot Camp classes, running, chasing my kids, etc.) for a few weeks. I forget I am wearing shoes - they are so comfortable. And I love the bright colors. Highly recommend.

This is an awesome shoe! It is so lightweight and comfortable. I run and usually go up a size in my shoes a half size. I went up a full size and they work great. I ordered a second pair (I now have the black and the purple). The colors are true as well.

The Fuji runner was my less cushy follow up to the gel kayanos. I was pleasantly surprised that the increased stability of this shoe made up for slightly less cushioning. I have high arches and chronically inflamed metatarsus and these shoes accommodate both with style. Love these asics, as I love all asics. As with most running shoes size up though! Normally take an 8.5-9 and in these shoes I was happy with a 10.

Brands I'd also recommend: Merrell, Sketchers Go Run, Nike lunar glide.

I absolutely love these shoes! I have tried many shoes trying to find what works for me because I have Morton's neuroma. Normally my feet are numb after 1 mile but not with these! My feet don't go numb. They fit great, they grip wonderful so I'm not slipping on a rough trail. They are flexible yet give me enough support when I'm dodging rocks and tree roots. I hope they don't discontinue these! Overall great shoe! I highly recommend!

Brands I'd also recommend: For paved roads I recommend asics gel Lyte33 number 2!

I run 4-6 times weekly, on a combination of gravel and paved roads and do 10-20 K road and trail races. I bought these shoes primarily for the trail races, but they have also become my favourite shoe for the longer training runs on roads because they have enough cushioning and don't easily pick up gravel in the sole. They are light and flexible and the mesh is breathable and tough. The laces are easy to handle when muddy and soaking wet. The pocket in the tongue for tucking away lace loops is a nice touch. The outsoles are grippy on wet rock and in general the sole design offers a great protection from stubs, scuffs and slides while still feeling light and streamlined. Hooray also to Asics for making and Zappos for stocking my size (10.5). I love everything about this shoe.. I would say 5 stars all around, except that I would prefer different colours.

This is the first time I've fallen in love with a pair of running shoes in the first ten strides. I've worn ASICS for years and these have the same fit as other ASICS--slightly narrow overall with a goldilocks toe box. This is my second pair of minimalist runners. I did not expect the minimalist trail shoes to be so light and protective at the same time. These shoes make me want to run.

These are the most comfortable running shoes I have ever owned. I wish that they had other colors, not the purple...not a fan of purple. They are really light, but have wonderful instep and ball of foot support. They do have air holes in the forefront sole, so be aware before you run through a puddle.

I love the look and feel of this shoe. I didn't realize that there were vent holes in the sole and soaked my socks. I just make sure these are indoor shoes or dry weather shoes now.

Awesome shoe! Very comfortable with no break-in time at all! I ran 3 miles the first day I put these on and have run a lot more since then and feels like I have owned them forever! First pair of Asics and very happy with them. Only thing I don't like is they have 3 tiny airholes in the bottom and it lets water through to your feet! I just try to watch where I step but if not, no biggie! Would buy again!

I am an Asics fan. I have been wearing the brand for years. This pair is extremely comfortable and light. Especially love the colors of this shoe. I tend to be conservative, but have gotten a ton of compliments on the look of this shoe.

These are the best shoes I've ever owned. Had them for about 6 months, I wear them to cross-fit and to work in a doctors office. I am buying them again in another color.

I love these shoes. I wear them with black leggings and they look great, not to mention there is ample room for my toes to wiggle and are supportive for lengthy walks.

I used these shoes for the Tough Mudder 12 miles long and 26 obstacles in mud, water, sand and climbing over walls. They were fantastic! Wouldn't use anything else. There is also a flap to tuck in your shoe laces. My shoes were trashed afterward. I ended up washing them in a delicate wash cycle with a little bit of soap after I removed the insoles. Then I air dried them for a day outside. Good as new. The mesh built in the soles were great at draining out water during the swim. I'm used to a cushioned shoe but the I was able to adjust to the minimalist shoe.

Great shoe, lightweight and true to size. I'm an average runner, mostly on city paved trails but this does the job on short runs. Love this shoe for everyday at work also when I'm on my feet. True to size and color rocks. I wear a 9 and on the narrow side of shoes.

Really comfortable and light weight shoes - unfortunately, the arches are too high for me - they need to be returned.

This is a great shoe for running on the road. More support than a racing flat but lighter than a regular running shoe.

These are great looking shoes, I've had lots of compliments on them! I've worn them to a few Boot Camp classes and they were great, very light weight. I ran about 4.5 miles in them & have a horrible blister on my left 4th toe from rubbing so you might order about a half size up. I got the Aqua/cement ones and the pictures on here do not do justice to the orange color, it is more of a bright peachy color which is much better than the picture shows. I'm hoping the rubbing will stop after a few more runs in them, if not these will only work for my aerobics & strength training classes.

I ordered these Asics because I have a pair that I exercise in that I love. Received these today and they aren't very wide, not even as wide as a "normal" pair of tennis shoes. I wouldn't recommend getting these if you have wide feet because they are very tight. Other than the width the shoes are great, but I will be sending them back.

I purchased the shoes for Crossfit they are very comfortable but a little to much tread for Crossfit but great for short runs and general wear. They are more minimalist than regular Asics I wear for running. Great color and style!

I wanted to love these shoes - they were so lightweight. I ordered the Gel Kahana in the same order. Kahana fit like a glove and was immediately comfy. These Fujis are super tight and small. So weird. Sorry to say they gotta go back.

I love this shoe, the colors are great. I haven't been able to adapt to minimal support shoes for running, because I have flat feet, but these are super cute for running around town.
