I love this sneaker. Fits well, love the colors! My husband calls them my "clown" sneakers (he has no taste)!

I love the looks of this shoe but I also found it super stiff. I tried washing them a couple of times but they still feel stiff. I am disappointed because they look so cool...I've reverted to wearing my old Asics. Sad.

Love them! They have great support, I can feel the cushioning in the ball of my foot and the arch support is great (I have high arches). I use them for all my training needs and they are perfect. The crazy colors look great too! I will buy these again and again.

I love these shoes! First let me say what a conversation starter these are. Every class I go to, there is a discussion about them. Even at the grocery store I get stopped! Second, they are awesome shoes! I bought these so I would have a shoe for CrossTraining and R.I.P.P.E.D. Classes. That would hold up to the pounding. These did not disappoint.

I was searching for a shoe to wear for zumba - the Rykas I was wearing were not comfortable and I was developing pain on the lateral aspect of my heel to the point I had difficulty walking for several hours after class. I read a review from a zumba instructor who used this shoe and recommended it. I wore it to class tonight - no pain in my feet! Great heel cushioning and lateral support - and the soles are smooth enough to pivot easily during zumba. I did replace the insole with my Dr. Scholl's. Never had considered a "volleyball" shoe for zumba, but it works. And the color is fabulous!

I really wanted to like these shoes. I read the reviews and had planned to use them for my Zumba classes. They are really cute but they have NO cushion in the sole. I needed something that gives a little bounce in the heel, these just weren't it. They are going back.

I do a lot of Zumba - usually 5 classes a week - and my knees are very touchy. But these shoes support my feet so well that my knee pain is minimal. Not true for other shoes (and I've tried many, looking for the perfect Zumba shoe). These, at least for me, are the closest to perfect. I think the cushioning is great - lots of bounce - and the circle under the ball of the foot helps with turns. I have them in all 4 color combos. Please, Asics, never discontinue this shoe!

Love these shoes! I have been looking for a good cross trainer for my P90X3 work outs - lots of jumps and lateral moves and my other trainers did not give me enough support, plus they are ugly. These shoes are fantastic! I have higher arches and need room in to the toes. Solid support throughout my workouts, my toes have plenty of room, and I love the bright color combo.

I love these shoes! They are very comfy and are really cute in the neon colors. The best part is that I was able to remove insole and put my custom made orthotic in. The heel is high enough that my heel doesn't slip out even with the orthotic in. I think I'm going to order another pair.

While they aren't as chshion-y as other Asics gels, they do offer nice stability. I mainly got them for work and standing all day on cement floors. And also for the colors. They are fun. My husband says they look like a cupcake on steroids.

I bought these shoes for myself because I have neuropathy, have had neuroma surgery and have a scar that needs room in the toe box or I experience pain. These shoes see me through 2 hours of Pickleball and I'm pain free. I, also, purchased these for a friend who has achilles issues and they seem to minimize her discomfort. I would recommend these shoes to anyone experiencing foot issues and wanting to be active. Also, when purchasing shoes online, there is not better way to do it than Zappos because of the free shipping.

I usually do not wear athletic shoes unless I am "doing athletics"...but I ordered these because they are so fun and thought I might actually wear them out to the grocery store or shopping on a really casual day. Because I generally have my walking/workout shoes professionally fitted, I really did just order these for the heck of it. Surprisingly, they fit great, feel great, have great support and I love them! So much fun to wear! I am a bright color person so these are perfect.

These are fun Zumba shoes! If you need support, slight grip, light weight shoe and luv the Asics brand, you need to get these for Zumba. Everyone likes the colors and I get the power that I need to use in some Zumba steps with support to go and go and go. These shoes came to my door and later that day I enjoyed Zumba class with them! Thanks to other reviews I tried this style.

I have received so many compliments on these fun, upbeat shoes! First and most importantly, they are super comfortable and perform well - I take kick box and step classes and they hold my orthotics well (I always get 1/2 size bigger, which I did here too). Love them. They brighten my day!

I love these shoes! I have gotten more compliments on these shoes, in the black color combination, than any other shoes ever. They are comfortable, true to size and work with well my orthotics. I am a fitness instructor and I wear them for step, spin, kickboxing and zumba.

As a Zumba Instructor these shoes go with all of my outfits! I like the additional density on the bottom of my feet as my feet have cried out for less barefoot feeling after 7 years of pounding. I can easily add my custom orthotics. I like them so much in fact that I bought a second pair for when my first ones have too much mileage! There is plenty of room in the toe box for me and the breathability with mesh helps my sweaty dogs breathe.

These shoes are excellent for support and lateral moves. I weight train and circuit train 5-6 days a week it's vital that I use good form and these shoes do the job. Yes, I would recommend! The colors are just so happy.

A nice trendy shoe with bright colors. Toed runs a tad large Stiff, stable shoe that would be good for runners as it has a lot of gel on the sole to absorb heavy pounding. I had to return shoe.I also ordered the Gel Noosa in a 9 which runs a tad small in the toe. I am returning the 9 for a 9 1/2. The Gel Noosa is lightweight and has good arch support for me. I love the black pattern multi color.
