First off I want to say that it's about time a motion control shoe is actually cute. I've had many over the years that I would never wear any where other than the gym and to walk in. The comfort of this shoe is remarkable. There is plenty of room in the toe box, so my toes don't go numb because they are crowded. I love the fit. Definitely go up a half size or even a full size because the gel will push your heel forward. Thanks Asics for making this shoe!
Plan to order at least a half size up; extreme comfort!
Great cushion surrounding the back of the ankle and throughout the footed especially the heel. Supreme comfort and luxury. Would have been a 5 star rating but the shoe sizing is so far off...I measure a 10 and 10.5 and I purchased an 11 that was snug on my smaller foot and downright tight on the other. This was replacing another pair of Asics which was a size 11 with plenty of room to move in the toe, I don't like to be constructed (which is why I buy up). I ended up purchasing the nimbus 18 in 11.5 and it fits like my old size 11.
I was wearing the GT 2000 but the series 5 were not comfortable. The motion control gives a lot of support. Just got them the other day and ran 8 miles in them with no problems. I would recommend them to a friend.
I would not buy this shoe again
I did not like this shoe. I have had previous editions of this shoe and they have been fine. But this one seemed clunky and made my knees hurt.It also seemed to be sized a bit bigger - I always take a 7.5 but this one seemed long. It felt like a flat board with much less flex than its previous editions
Discovered a different Asics......
I ususally wear Asics Kayano, but decided to try this style based on reviews and the fact that it met my criteria for stability & cushion.....and so glad I did! Wore them all over DisneyWorld on a trip with our grandchildren this month....not one glitch. Awesome...no aching, tired feet at all.
These are wonderful on my feet! Nice cushion at balls of feet, good arch support, and very lightweight. I went to Brooks for a while, and they were comfortable, but felt like anvils on my feet (heavy). They are true to size and have plenty of room for my toes.
Love the cushion on the shoes, but they are not very stealthy.
they fit wide and it's like I need to curl my toes to get them to stay on my feet. I can't tie the shoelaces tight enough to make them snug.
I need to send them back unfortunately.
Love this shoe
Been wearing this model of shoe for over fifteen years. My favourite shoe for running. I go through two pairs of shoes a year. Love the model fits perfect every time. Thank you roadrunner you never disappoint
i would not buy this it
I have followed this shoe style for the past several years. This one is still comfortable as the others but the toe was made just a little too wide for me.
Will order again!
This shoe is just right for me! It provides the stability I need. The sizing is perfect. I wish this shoe came in less bright colors though.
Plan to purchase again.
Good: good fit, not bulky, a solid shoe.
Great for walkers!
Super comfortable!! Great for walking!
Love the look and comfort.
Nice grip, great comfort
My wife loves this shoe!
