I teach Jazzercise classes 5+ a week and I needed a good quality shoe for dance, weight training and so be supportive and flexible. This shoe feels wonderful. I have a wider foot, flat foot. The shoe hugs in all the right places. Asics never lets me down.

These are really cute and when you put them on you get that "aahhhhh" feeling, so I thought I had finally found the right pair of cross-trainers to hold up during my daily high-impact Jazzercise classes. I taught one class and by the end, they were stretched out and my forefoot was moving side-side in the shoe...no lateral support. I have this problem often, so I'm used to buying many pairs before finding a decent pair, but I'm disappointed because I really thought these were the ones. Bummed that no sneakers are holding their support anymore!

I was searching for a crosstrainer that I could use for both Body Pump style gym classes as well as Zumba. I tried a bunch of different brands and styles and this was the only shoe that felt like it would provide a lot of stability as well as cushion and comfort. The first time I wore them I thought I made a mistake and would be stuck with an uncomfortable sneaker, but the next time I wore them I wore very thin socks and left the laces a little looser and now I love them! They were everything I was hoping they'd be...very comfortable, supportive, well-cushioned, and they look cute too. I love the berry color...pretty and not too over-the-top bright.

I normally wear a 7.5 in running style shoes. Was looking for a cross training shoe for Kaia (intense training similar to Insanity/P90x). When doing jumps and push-ups my running shoes were catching on each other and I was ready to shave the sides off. So far these seem great. I did have to buy a size 8 as the toe pinched doing push-ups when I tried them on.

This is a great shoe that I believe will benefit me quite a bit. I ordered these after reading good reviews on the shoe and hearing good things about the Asics brand. I am going to use these for my workout classes and cannot wait to use them. I also like that they are flexible and very supportive. They are comfortable and stylish and very good. My only complaint is that they do seem to run a little bit small. I'm an 8.5 and that's what I ordered, and I think I could have used a 9, but that's okay. I do these and am keeping them. I'll just order a 9 when the next time.

These shoes are extremely comfortable! I bought them for circuit training and the keep my feet stable when jumping around and when balancing on one foot. Love the style too! Have received many compliments on these.

These shoes were my second attempt at finding athletic shoes to work for both my bootcamp style workouts and my cardio. At first the shoes seemed very snug and narrow. As I wore them I realized that was from the lateral support. I am very happy with this purchase.

These feel amazing. Touching my feet in all the right places. Perfect support for my high impact plyometric workouts. Asics are kind of crazy looking sometimes...but these are actually really cute.

Striking bright blue, nice gel cushion, great movement. Slight narrow toe so not a running shoe but, a run around town fashion shoe. Good looking shoe for a light workout.

These have been great workout shoes for me! I do a boot camp that has running, jumping, balance exercises and everything in between and I have felt supported. I would definitely recommend them. I have SUPER high arches so I would like to have a bit more arch supper in my next shoe, but as I said these have been good to me.

Asics are the only brand of athletic shoe I wear. Tennis, walking, cross trainers- all are Asics. They fit the shape of my foot, size is consistent and true. When shopping for a new pair of cross trainers I fell in love with the Craze! The colors are in my favorite color palate, 'snappy' but not too wild for this grandmother!

I purchased these shoes t wear in Group X classes where stability and cushioning are important qualities for me. The Gel-Craze did not disappoint. I felt both the support and cushioning as soon as I put them on and they've performed well during classes.

I love these shoes. I have another pair of Asics Gel-Breez which are also a 6 1/2. Unfortunately these are too long and I have almost an inch beyond my big toe which will punch through the mesh even sooner than my last pair, so I will be returning them.

I was wearing the Rhythmic for Zumba class. and I like them, but they didn't have enough padding which is why I like Asics. The Gel-Craze TR has better padding and works okay for Zumba, but it would be great to have the Rhythmic bottom design with the padding of the Gel-Craze. I find it helps to rotate wearing the two different styles. However, I am happy with my purchase and as always, Zappos shopping is a dream.

Love the color and fit of this shoe. I always have to order my sneakers from Zappos. They have the best selection and customer service. I usually order a few at a time. I ordered another Asics sneaker but this one had great color and felt so right to the size. I wear 11.5, this 12 gives me enough toe room for swelling yet doesn't feel too loose.

Brands I'd also recommend: I always fall back to Asics

These sneakers are extremely comfortable while simultaneously providing necessary support. I have flat feet and can not wear all brands. This is my first experience with Asics; however I am hooked. The colors are great as well.

Really like how comfortable this shoe is, seems to hug my foot perfectly and give the right amount of cushioning without being too bulky. I was looking for a shoe to take me from a gym dance class, to a kickboxing class and this shoe so far has been great all round.

I bought these for Jazzercise after trying lots of different shoes. These are great! I have flat feet and need a lot of support. These shoes have the perfect sole for aerobic dance and for lateral moves. They are well-worth the cost because you will get better at what you're doing. The looks are just OK for me. I hope they come out with some new color schemes in this shoe.

I bought these shoes for weights and other gym training (e.g. lunges, squats- not walking or running; I have different sneakers for those activities). I love them! Very supportive and also roomy in a good way. I always buy Asics sneakers and like the way they fit, but I do buy one size up. I'm 6.5/7 in heels, sandals, and I buy size 8 sneakers.

I bought this shoe for cross-training in the gym. Asics fits me very well as a rule, so choosing this model was a no-brainer. The sole is very flexible and the upper is very breathable, which is exactly what I need in a gym shoe. In my opinion, these are terrible for the treadmill. My go-to is the Asics Gel Nimbus line for doing any kind of running, but this Gel Craze is fine for the elliptical machine.

I tried a few shoes before this shoe. I use it for a interval training fitness classes and power walking outside. So far the grip has been great. It supports my feet (arches, heels and toe bed) well while doing quick lateral movements.

I really wish these shoes fit! I am bigger than a size 11, so I usually have to buy guys tennis shoes because I can't find women's in my size. I was so excited to see these in a 12 for this reason. Most of the time if I find a size 12 in a dress shoe, it will fit me or be a little big. These however were too small. :( My toe on my right foot ran into the end of the shoe. My left foot is about half a size smaller than my right foot, and it fit great. I could tell that these shoes would have been really comfortable if they would've fit. So sad! I would say order half a size bigger in these shoes.
