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.

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.

Due to how wide the shoes are, on the first day I wore them I broke them in on the side badly. My feet are narrow and the shoes are way too wide for me. They are comfortable, but way too bulky.

I was looking for cross trainers with good support. I have narrow feet but like a wider toe box. I love Asics shoes for running and wanted to try these, They are great. I also wanted shoes that were on sale as I just was not sure how much I would like the shoes. Not only are they comfortable but people actually stop and tell me they think they look great. That is just a bonus to the great workout that they provide.

I love my Asics Gel Flashpoint shoes. They are very comfortable and they are so fun to wear as I get remarks and smiles when I wear them. They are my comfortable fun shoes. Thanks Zappos for the good pricing, great free shipping to and fro.

Love these shoes! I normally wear 6/6.5 but I got a 7 and they were perfect! So comfy! I was having heel pain every morning when I got out of bed (probably from flat sandals.) I just try to wear these shoes for long walks and running errands and the pain is significantly less!

I love these Asics. I have tried numerous styles in the Asics range and although these are a little heavier in weight they are perfect in every other way. They are true to size true to performance and even better in color than the photographs. Asics never fail to please. A great shoe for gym classes.

On my third pair of these Flashpoints. These are great for the gym and also as a walking shoe. Have received many compliments on these from men and women, young and old. They feel great with super support. Thanks Zappos for carrying these in all offered colors.

Brands I'd also recommend: Only Asics or maybe some Brooks

I love these sneakers. It is the second pair I have bought. The only difficulty is that the top develops a hole after a few months of wear.

I have bunions so finding comfortable, utilitarian, attractive shoes takes some effort. These shoes are great -- right out of the box I wore them for walking or running, about 30 miles/per week. I've had them just over a month and no blisters, no hot spots. Comfortable. Also true to size. I will definitely order another pair when this one wears out.

Just received those shoes and got very disappointed finding out they are volleyball shoes! They are sold as crossfit shoes and nowhere on Zappos description it says they are volleyball shoes. I am very surprised by all those comments and good reviews of zumba/fitness/cross training people.

Colors are awesome! I hope I can find something to wear with them. Cushiony fit with good arch support. I usually wear narrow but this shoe tightens up quite well and the hell doesn't slip if you lace the top through the rear holes. I have problems about my balance and these shoes have good lateral support which is very important for feeling my balance and for protecting me as well. So I bought them for everyday stuff (and gym if I do what I should!). Asics is the best brand athletic shoe I have ever owned.They have been supportive, comfortable and these feel the same. The price value is great too.

Amazing comfort so glad I bought these. True to size colors are bright, people will see you coming, Received 4 complements in one day. People wanted to know where I got these because they want to purchase a pair. I bragged to everyone who stopped me to tell me how much they loved my shoes.

This is my 2nd pair of Flashpoints and they are as comfortable as the 1st. However the yellow part of the shoe is very shiny and is made of a different material than my 1st pair. So overall they're a bit more 'flashy' than the others. But as always Zappos is the best!

True to size excellent choice. Some of the reviews mentioned too stiff; however, found shoe to have excellent structure for great support. Comfortable yet sturdy.

Great shoe! Comfortable right out of the box. I did size up a half size after reading other reviews & it was spot on. I did add a gel insert for a little extra "cush" because I have very tender feet, plus I'm a diabetic. I wear these for work - I'm a nurse - and have had a significant reduction in back/foot/leg pain with these shoes. As always, thanks a bunch to Zappos for super fast delivery!

Comfortable shoe; nice arch support. But the colors are too wild for me. (I got the turquoise/hot pink/yellow). Actually I think the bright multi-colors are more suited for a teenager; which I am not. This shoe did not look good on me.

Brands I'd also recommend: I only wear ASICS

Love these shoes. I teach Aqua Zumba on the pool deck and land Zumba and these work great. Good support, great impact support , very light and easy lateral mad turning movement without knee tork. This is the second purchase of these shoes as I just love the fit and support. I use orthotics too that I wear from the Runner's store just because of personal prefer acme but I have worn without too and they work fine. I have them in the green and yellow color too. Both second purchase. I find them true to size. I take a 7 in sneakers.

Love this shoe! I've been getting a lot of compliments! The bright colors are just what I wanted to wear with my black scrubs. Not as much arch support as my other Asics, but still a very comfortable shoe!

I love these shoes. Comfortable from the minute I put them on and I did 12 miles the other day and not one sore spot on my feet. I was a little "nervous" about the colors being too bright. I get more compliments on these silly shoes that anything else I own. Worth the money!
