Cumulus 13 lovers, this is not the same shoe. The Cumulus 14 is missing all the cushiony goodness that I loved in the Cumulus 13. I ran through 4 pairs of Cumulus 13's the Cumulus 14's have been returned. Runner's World provides an excellent comparison of the Cumulus 13's and Cumulus 14's. http://www.runnersworld.com/shoe/gel-cumulus-13-0 http://www.runnersworld.com/shoe/gel-cumulus-14-0 I am on the hut for a new pair of running shoes. :(

Normally ASICS gel Cumulus is my go-to shoe, and has been for some time. I was so disappointed in the fit of Cumulus 14. The "wide" is closer to average and the size length just barely fits. I do like the lowered feel in the heel, however. My orthotics always fit, so that is a good thing. Come on, ASICS! You can do better! This pair is just about worn out; I am looking forward to the Cumulus 15. Just a thought--please make the wide version in more than one color choice. Thanks! PS. I always purchase my Asics from Zappos--your service is the best!

I have had a wide 7 in the cumulus 12 and this is much more narrow. It's too bad because I have loved these shoes

This is my fourth pair of Asics Cumulus. They are not the same shoe. The padding in the ball of the foot has changed and it is not as cushioned or comfortable. I am returning and trying a different Asics style.

Brands I'd also recommend: none Asics are the best

This iteration of the Asics Cumulus series has two major drawbacks: the toe box is not nearly as roomy as my former pairs, and the cushioning is not as good. I'm making do with less than cloud like comfort because I need the Cumulus for pronation stability and because I use my own orthotic in the shoe. I'm wondering if this model may be the result of Asics attempting to economize on the cost of their product.

Hate these shoes. Have worn Asics Cumulus for 4 years happily. Cumulus 14 is light weight, no arch support and like a board to run on. Give me Cumulus 13 anytime. Have scoured the internet to find extra pairs of them. They are light weight, good arch support and like running on clouds.

I agree with previous posts - the shoe size runs small in the front/toe portion of the shoes. Consider ordering a larger size.

Great shoes! Very comfortable, I don't run but I'm on my feet all day and these shoes feel great. No "break in" period just put them on an go. Everything about them is great, color, fit and comfort. Great shoe for the price!

Asics are my go to running shoe. I just replaced my cumulus 13's with this version. I love them as much as the pair before and when time to replace will be sure to stick with Asics.

I love my new athletic shoes! I usually wear New Balance and wanted to try something new. Sure glad I did. They have been comfortable since I first put them on, No "break in" period needed. Really like the color. The fit is perfect! Really hard to find a size 13. Thanks Asics!

They seem comfortable and supportive, but they run a bit short and tight--I'm normally a solid 9.5 in Asics, but these 9.5W were too small for me.

Great shoe! Much better than my last non-Asics choice! Very lightweight and comfortable. The gel on the bottom is great. I could instantly feel a huge difference on the gravel I do part of my runs on. I've run 60-70 miles in these in the first 3 weeks of owning them and have been injury free and very comfortable. Also...love the design and colors. Woot woot!

The Cumulus & the Nimbus are the only Asics for high arches. Do not find, as I've seen reported elsewhere, that this shoe is narrow. Now run about 30 miles per week, scaling back.

Brands I'd also recommend: Have tried every top running shoe--ONLY Asics

Love these shoes! Very cute and so comfortable. The only thing that has seemed to change since my last ASIC Cumulus purchase is that the arch support isn't as high, so I was a little bummed about that.

Love the comfort and support! I got the narrow, and really like it. I've worn normal width Asics before and thought they were fine, but the narrow feels much more snug and secure on my feet.

Love the shoes! Extremely loved the service from Zappos as well. I ordered these shoes late in the evening one night and they were on my doorstep the following day... FREE SHIPPING! Awesome. They have me hook line and sinker as a customer!

Great shoe. I've been wearing this style shoe for years. It is supportive, roomy, well cushioned, and comfortable. I tend to supinate and, even though this shoe is considered neutral, it works well for me. I am not a runner, but I do a lot of walking for exercise. I have always been happy with the Asics Gel-Cumulus series.

I was so afraid to purchase the 14 after reading the reviews. I have a slightly wide foot and love the roomy toeboxes you find in the Asics Gel Cumulus. I read a review that stated the roominess was gone. I considered ordering wide. So glad I didn't. These shoes are perfect! In fact, I was able to wear them to an hour kickboxing class right out of the box. My 13's took a little wearing around the house to break them in. These shoes are cushy and feel like I am walking on air (peppy air!). The purple and lime color is so much fun! If you are a Cumulus lover, don't be afraid of the 14's!

I really like these shoes. I like a real cushiony neutral sneaker for jogging and these fit the bill. My only complaints are the color choices and my feet get hot in them.

I am on my third pair of Asics Cumulus 14's. They are the only shoes I've encountered that spare my ankles. I pronate slightly so I have gone for more stability in the past, but these truly have felt the best. Also...they come in snazzy colors! In everyday shoes I wear around a 7.5, but because these are running shoes I go for an 8.5.

OMG! I LOVE my new shoes. I had heard for years to buy ASICS.... Why am I a slow learner?!? I am so happy with them. I am walking MORE than ever because my feet don't hurt! PLUS, I have gotten many compliments on my new shoes. I'm a believer.... My next pair will be ASICS, too!
