I have to write a LONG fan letter to Asics. I was a hard-to-fit size 13 and then broke both of my feet, leaving them a size 13.5-14. I have always been forced to wear men's shoes (and those awful colors) which is hugely embarrassing to me. So when I saw these and they had size 13, I had to try them on. With free shipping both ways, it wasn't too much of a risk. To my ABSOLUTE DELIGHT not only do they fit (so they are about half a size larger than marked, at least when you get the bigger size), but they are comfortable and the most amazing pink ever. I love these shoes and I seriously need 10 more pairs so I always have backup. I read a lot of reviews on this site and others that said they run small and the shoelaces are too short. That may be true in the smaller sizes, but if you are a lady with big feet, go ahead and give these a try.

They changed their design from the original. It it much wider and looser both in the forefoot and heel. My narrow foot was perfect for the original; nice and snug and kept my foot from sliding on uneven terrain. This one lets my foot slide all over, creating an unstable base for trails or gravel. I am a neutral runner. Asics: Please bring back the original!

These are amazing tennis shoes! They are very comfortable and true to size. I am wearing them for training with TRX and they have a lot of support.

I am so sad I had to return these shoes. I have an "average" foot, size 7.5. The size is on point 100%, not too snug. However, this style was a little too short around the ankle area for me, making the shoe feel lose, and because it kept rubbing my ankle, I didn't take the chance, and returned them. The orange color I got was wonderfully fun and happy. I did notice not as much padding in the toe area, like similiar shoes from this brand. I would recommend this shoe for an everyday live in shoe. For me, it didn't fit my working out, and running needs. I was disappointed in that because other reviewers felt it was a great running shoe, but it didn't have enough support as an all around shoe for me for that. If I needed an everyday shoe, I probally would have kept them.

I purchased these (my first Asics!) in March of 2013 and I do a variety of high-impact workouts (running, group classes at the gym, etc.) approximately 5 times a week. I love these shoes! I have bad knees and ankles and these shoes provided support to significantly ease my pain. It's now October 2013 (almost 6 months to the day!) and I have just now started to feel pain again. So...I'm on here looking for another pair! I also got a lot of compliments on them, which doesn't hurt. Overall, true to size, maybe slightly longer. Med width was dead on.

Great shoe! I ordered these mid way through training for a 1/2 marathon and was pleased with the fit right away. They provide good support for a light shoe. I never notice my shoes, which is exactly the way they should be for me. Doing their job and not rubbing or cradling my foot too tightly. I ran my 1/2 marathon last weekend and the shoes did great for that distance.

I absolutely love these shoes! They have the most amazing support, vibrant and energizing color, and provide me with great stability. I didn't have to worry about breaking them in either. I am a true Asics fan, and always will be because of these running shoes! The first day I wore them, I ran a full 5 miles and wasn't sore at all the following day.

Nice, lightweight running shoe. Asics are always true to size. (I know I'm a 7.5, and any 7.5 I've bought has fit just right, even when I buy online.) They aren't too narrow (my feet are a bit wider than 'normal', and there's plenty of room in the shoe, including the toe-box.) The heel ate my no-show socks the first time I wore them, so my heel rubbed raw. But I got socks with slightly higher ankles, and it's been good since then. (Only caveat: these shoes don't have the second set of lace holes near the top to help adjust the tension of your laces over the top of your foot versus the tightness at your ankle. I've used that for past shoes, but these are light enough that I don't feel like they are flopping around without tightening them around my ankles.)

I love these shoes, but I read a previous review stating they ran big...I usually wear a size 7 but I ordered a 6.5. I had to return them and reorder a 7. Took a while to reorder because I was waiting for Zappos to credit my account. Now that I have them I get lots of compliments when I wear them!

This show fits very well. I have narrow feet and it fits me perfectly ,so I could see how it might be very snug for people with wide feet. I use these shoes for cross training and aerobics and it provides me great support for jumping, running, and lateral moves. I also really the colors!

These are my first Asics, and I'm really happy with them. I wear these for walking and they are really comfortable -- no pinched toes, decent support and lightweight. I bought the black with turquoise/pink/neon yellow and I love the colors.

I saw these shoes on Facebook advertising and fell in love with the color. I was walking the Susan G Komen 5K for Breast Cancer and thought the color would be great. I had the hardest time finding them - But a shout out to the guys at Dicks Sporting Goods in Buford Georgia they helped me locate them. When I got them I was worried about comfort but to my surprise they are the most comfortable shoe I own - I can't think of wearing any of my other shoes to walk in. Thank you Asics. I give them a firm 10+.

Ever since the 2012 Olympics, I knew I had to have hi-liter colored shoes. I love pink so these were the clear choice. I live in these shoes. I work, go to school and workout in them. The are my go-to for my busy workweek. They are extremely lightweight and cushioned. One day I mixed it up and wore a different pair of shoes to work, and regretted it right when I stepped into them. None of my other shoes have the same comfort level that these have. The only thing I do not do in these is long runs. I need more arch support than these provide for running, but for everything else I do, they are perfect. I always get compliments on these shoes, no matter where I wear them. I am even considering buying the black pair for days that I may need a more subtle look.

I love these shoes. They're lightweight and extremely comfortable. I do regular HIIT workouts (a lot of rapid movements, reps, working with weights) and these shoes withstand everything! They do run a bit wide, but that is perfect for me (I believe that's an Asics thing).

By far the best athletic shoes I have ever owned. I am moderately active - participating in spinning two days a week and elliptical/treadmill workouts other days. I needed a shoe that was versatile enough to handle a variety of exercises, while still comfortable enough to use for general walking. I have bunions on both feet, so finding a shoe wide enough for exercise is always a problem. From the moment I slipped these on, I knew they were perfect. I have been using them for about three weeks now and I couldn't be happier. Perfect amount of arch support and adequate width across the toes. I am amazed at how light this shoe is - and it doesn't look boxy. I'm so pleased! The bright orange is just that - bright.

I love Asics, and these are no exception. My very narrow heel fits well in these shoes, despite their regular width (I wear a 9 Narrow in Asics, but the half-size down in regular width fits almost as well). I wore these for two days walking around Disneyland (without breaking them in) and my feet have never felt better after two full days of walking and standing. Plus, neon! These shoes are very stylish and comfortable, would recommend to anyone for walking/exercise or just everyday wear outside of the office!
