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!

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!

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!

Overall, these Asics are great, versatile sneakers! I'd already decided on this style a while back at the shoe store, but now that I know my size, Zappos has the best price, and ordering them here is a breeze. Because of my arches, I always need to put innersoles in these shoes, but even by themselves, they have very good arch support - much better than I've seen in a lot of athletic sneakers. They are very sturdy and stand up well to my active lifestyle, from working out, to a day at the office, to running errands. And they wash very well too - when they get stinky, I just throw them in the washer with a little mild laundry detergent, and then in the dryer on regular heat, and they come out like new. For the price and quality, I can highly recommend the Asics Gel-Exalt to anyone looking for a sturdy, versatile sneaker!

Love the shoes,they are very comfortable and look nice. I have orthotics and was able to remove the lining and insert the orthotic when I was going to be walking for a while (although I have gone back to the regular lining and my feet have been fine).

I was pleasantly surprised by this shoe, especially for the price. It has excellent cushioning and support. I have failed miserably trying to wear orthotics and arch supports. I now just go with the shoe and am much happier and more comfortable. This shoe works for me! It controls my mild over-pronation without making my feet feel pushed over. The colors are fun! I hope Asics keeps this one around for awhile. Thanks Zappos for making a challenging process (finding shoes) easy.
