I put these shoes on and they fit me like a glove. Since I wear a 10 1/2 this can sometimes be a problem, but since the Asics come in 1/2 sizes beyond 10, I was in luck. Very happy with these shoes so far. They may not have quite as much support as my Saucony for the overpronation, but I'm hoping there is enough.

I am athletic and have a difficult foot to fit--never mind plantar fasciitis and heel spurs. Asics Gels have been the best shoe for me. The Exalt is extremely comfortable with good cushioning, arch support, and lateral support and even accommodates my orthotics well. I cannot say enough about Zappos and their volume of offerings. I have been a Zappos customer for about 5 years now and their customer service is outstanding time and time again.

This is my first pair of Asics shoes. Most reviewers rated them highly so I had to give them a try. My other shoes were way, way overdue to be replaced and I was beginning to have my plantar fasciitis flare up again. These Asics fit me like a glove without any break in period necessary and my heel is already feeling better!

These are awesome. I have achilles tendonitis and these give all the support I need. I am a faithful Asics girl and have no reason to change. Plus, they are good looking shoes and a departure from all the bright colors that are so trendy right now.

Love them. I've got plantar fascia in both feet and nothing was making it better. I bought these shoes and added my inserts and I've got minimal amount of discomfort. I'll buy new shoes before I take another cortisone injection.

Comfortable, true to size. Good stability control without being stiff (though not as much stability as Brooks running shoes, in general). Was able to run in them the first day I wore them - didn't take any time at all to break them in.

These are a slightly downgraded version of the Asics that I run in. I needed a somewhat less expensive shoe for work where I am on my feet all day. They are extremely comfortable and fit well. I would buy these again.

One of the comfiest Asics I tried (out of 5 pairs), just wasn't available in a wide in a color I wanted and the medium width didn't quite fit right. Other than width, they were great feeling shoes and spot on size wise!

I bought this shoe for indoor aerobics and running track. Love the feel. Very light weight. I am glad I went with the white/lightning/turquoise. I have gotten lots of compliments on my shoes. So glad the wild multi color was not in my size.

I love these shoes. I always wear ACICS shoes and never have to worry about whether or not they will fit. I love the colors I choose, turquois and pink. I couldn't believe the expeditious service of Zappos. I ordered them late one afternoon and got them the next morning, free shipping!

I have to say these are the best shoes I have ever purchased! I have a great deal of trouble with comfort because of bunions. These shoes were comfortable from the first day. I also overpronate and these are very supportive. Think I might buy a second pair for the future!

Love these shoes. I've been wearing Asics for years now and these fit perfectly and true to size. I love the neon colors. They look just like the pictures. Zappos shipped them quickly and overall I had a great purchasing experience.

This is my second pair of ASICS Gel-Exalt shoes. I love that I can wear my actual size with thin socks. Other brands, I have to size up. They are very comfortable and light. The purple and orange pair went with me to a long weekend in NYC - between them and my FitFlop sandals I was walking in comfort and walking a lot! Very, very pleased.

These shoes are a great buy! Super comfortable from first wear, practically zero break-in time. Love the bright colors! You might want an arch support in these if you're fairly flat-footed like me.

I love the colors. I normally wear Gel Kayanos for the gym. These are for running around. The fit is a little different. I think the toe box is a little narrower so they feel a little tighter. Still comfortable at my normal 8 1/2. Slightly less cushiony feel then the Kayanos.

Brands I'd also recommend: Maybe high end Saucony for cushioning and arch.

These are amazing! They come and excellent colors and are amazingly comfortable. I should buy more now. These are flatter shoes. I absolutely hate the ones with heels. These make more sense.

These are excellent - comfortable right out of the box, light weight, reasonably cute, true to size. Toe box looks narrow but is very accommodating and does not squeeze my toes.

Love these shoes! They give me great support and comfort! My Podiatrist even said they are a great shoe for support. I have also had compliments on the look and color. I shop with Zappos because of the free fast delivery and return!

Just bought my 3rd pair of these sandals. They are extremely comfortable and they look great on The footbed is just right so the bottom of your feet do not hurt even when you are standing most of the day. I have them in Navy (great color) and the Pewter good dark gray color and now the greystone that is more of a beige then a gray to me! I would never buy 3 of anything if I didn't love the first one I bought.

Asics are my go to tennis shoe. I run and work out in them. Love the arch support and the colors. I bought the more expensive Nimbus last time, these were just as comfy and supportive and less money!
