Ordered these and the Nimbus 15's. By comparison, these ran much smaller, felt narrower and were not as cushioned under the front of the foot. Returning these and keeping the Nimbus 15.

These are gorgeous shoes, not your old white running shoes. I loved the color and the cushioning was great but the size 6 (even in wide) was just a bit too short and made my big toe sore. I usually wear a 6 but since I have a wide foot, thought the extra width might do the trick. It almost did but not quite. Definitely recommend buying a half size up from what you usually wear. If you're a size 5 and 1/2, these shoes would be a great buy; they're comfortable and the colors are really eye-popping!

Great shoes. I have been running for 10 years, 3 miles a day. I have always used neutral Asics shoes. This time I decided to try the Cumulus 15, and I like the extra support. I run on asphalt. This were also the only Asics shoes I liked in terms of color. The only thing I would ask Asics would be to provide better colors choices/ combinations. The ones they have ( particularly for they high end models) are tacky and gaudy.

I have been wearing Asics (2000,2100 series) for the last 18 years and a friend suggested I try the Cumulus. I was so happy with them I bought 4 pair! Besides loving the color combo these shoes have super cushioning! - which is a compliment because I was formerly wearing orthotics and at first try, other shoes felt flat In reference to the sizing I am a 7 1/2 but always go up a size in running shoes and was also wearing a wide (D) to accommodate my orthotics. Although I am no longer wearing my orthotics, I like the extra width so I stuck to 8D. (I am a long distance runner and Ironman Triathlete.) Hope this helps!

This was my first pair of Asics. i have typically purchased Saucony for runners for as long as I can remember. these are great running shoes so far! They were comfortable right out of the box and had good heel support. Felt snug on my feet and didn't "eat" my ankle socks. I wasn't 100% crazy about the color and style but i am much more concerned about the comfort and fit. Since I am not running really long distances (about 2.25 miles 3-4 days per week), I did not size up and the shoes felt spot on for sizing.

These shoes are amazingly comfortable, they do run about 1/2 size small though. I am wearing them at work as a nurse.

Finally, my Gel Cumulus is back! After years of purchasing Gel Cumulus, the last model to fit me was the 12. Luckily I had stocked up because the 13's and 14's were like completely different shoes. Those models felt 1/4 size too short, so I couldn't go up a size, and because they were too short the arch support hit in the wrong part of my foot. Well, the 15's are finally back to the original length of the 12's. I feel like there is a little less cushion on the base of the toe box than in the past, but I'm dealing with it because everything else feels good. If you've been a devoted Gel Cumulus fan in the past, these are as close as it's been to the Cumulus 11's and 12's.

Previously had GEL-Flux and loved them out of the box. These Cumulus were slightly less expensive so I thought I'd save a few dollars - what could be that different?! Bad idea. These are good shoes, but I wish I'd spent the extra money and bought another pair of Gel-Flux. These are just not as comfortable and the arches are just different enough that my feet aren't adjusting easily to them.

I love Asics, they are the only athletic shoe I buy. I have a big foot - I can wear an 11 in women's dress shoes, but I usually buy a men's 10-10.5 in sneakers for adequate toe room. I am so sick of boy colors - black, grey, red, green - so I was really excited to buy these. I bought a 12 (!) and they were still just a little too short in the toes. A 12! I am trying a couple other Asics models, including a wide, maybe they'll work better. This pair is unfortunately getting returned.

I bought these in a wide and they were still too narrow. After wearing around the house for about an hour my toes went numb. The colors were fun but the fit not so much, back they went. Thanks Zappos for taking things back from me all the time, I just have a really hard foot to fit.

Based on the reviews, I ordered half a size up and they were too big. I had to exchange them for my normal size. I do not feel like I have broken them in yet, but so far they are not up to my expectations. The right shoe feels a bit too big but not enough to justify going down a size. The left shoe hurts my foot a bit as I run, but that does seem to be getting better. I hope these will work for a while as I am getting back into running.

I love the Asics Gel 15. I had a pair of 14s, tried the 16s, but now prefer these! Very comfortable shoe. I use these for running or just going to the gym. Love the grey color! I normally wear a 10, but always order a half size up in Asics.

I am a beginning runner and was looking for more cushioning as I increase my mileage. These shoes have exactly what I wanted. They are extremely comfortable, breath well, hugs the foot without being too constricting (including a nicely padded heel), and looks good! I wear an 8 in other sneakers and an 8 fit great. I am very happy with my purchase.

This is a great running shoe. I was assessed at a running store and determined that this was the right shoe for me. Several years later, and I'm still buying the newer versions when I need new ones. I have feet that are on the wide side but not enough to go to a wide size. And I tend to supinate just a tad while running. These have perfect support for me. I get a full size larger than my normal shoe size.

I purchased a pair of the Asics cumulus shoes on the recommendation of a podiatrist. This specific shoe recommendation was in response to the discomfort I had after walking any distance. I can take long walks without discomfort now. A tribute to the podiatrist and the Asics.

I always wear a size 10 but had to return the size 10 and order 10-1/2 which fit perfectly. Of course, Zappos handled the exchange with ease and speed. The shoes are super comfortable and good looking. I am very happy!

Heaven. That is all I need to say. The difference from my previous "cheap" shoes to what I experience with the Asics GEL-Cumulus 15, is remarkable. This last month I spent a week at Girls Camp without my ortotics in because I forgot them and our cabin was the furthest away from the main camp activities, and a week at a large university campus attending classes and my feet were the most comfortable they have ever been. I am overweight and wear orthotics and I usually experience foot pain, knee pain and back pain. I don't mean to sound over exuberant, but I literally felt like I was walking on a cloud, no pain, LOVE the shoes. I will be buying a pair for my son who runs cross country....no more cheap shoes! The only thing that I would have liked better is more variety in choice of colors. :)

These shoes are supper comfortable, and it doesn't feel tied on my toes, which I had to wrap before or I had blisters. I did put inserts because I have to, but they are pretty, and super comfortable like I said before. Totally recommended. I do run 2 to 3 miles every other day, and they feel fantastic, sometimes I go 5 or 8 miles, and still great. I am usually 7.5, but order 8 because I like thick socks.

Love the shoes. I put a large majority of my weight on the outside of my feet when walking/jogging. These shoes have additional cushioning to better support my stride. I have always heard great things about Asics, I'm extremely happy with my first pair especially for the price.

With the previous reviews in mind, I ordered these a half size larger than I usually wear...but they were a half size too big. Many also said that the arch support was too much (but it was too little for me). So I gladly traded my sister for her new Salomons that were too small for her. We're both happy!

ASICS are the only athletic shoes that work for me, this is my second pair of these. These are very comfortable and supportive, and seem to be wearing well over the long term. I have medium width feet but other athletic shoes tend to be too wide; these are perfect. They do make my feel look huge, but at size 11, there's not much to be done about that anyway!

I was very interested in purchasing these shoes but when I pulled the trigger my size was sold out. After reading reviews that they ran a little narrow I decided to buy the wides (also I just wanted to see what they really looked like). When they arrived they fit perfect. Nice bright colors and much more cushion than my previous Nikes.
