      Comments about Mens ASICS GEL-Cumulus 18 Running Shoe:

      I bought these as I am a big asics fan having been a runner for over 20 years. I preach asics, but this one let me down. I love the feel but the top of the shoe is an issue. A small hole developed on my right shoe at the point of pressure where my large toe touches the top of the shoe from within. This hole developed within 2 weeks. Now, the hole is huge and my left one has started. I have seen this happen to other people over the years and just thought they must have some sort of foot issue. Well, again, been runnng over 20 years and this is the first time it has happened to me and on both shoes none the less. Something is inherently wrong with this shoe. Do not buy!

        I usually get 5-6 months on this type of training shoe, going 15 - 25 miles per week. Cushioning progresses as anticipated, you'll know when it's replacement time. I'm a 5' 7" 170 lb lifelong runner, it's a good shoe, I would recommend it.

        By Kyle

        from undisclosed

        Verified Buyer

        Comments about Mens ASICS GEL-Cumulus 18 Running Shoe:

        I've been using Asics running shoes exclusively for well over 10 years and and have been very pleased. Thankfully Asics hasn't changed the fit of the upper in that time frame, so I can just order my size and know it will fit perfectly. This works particularly well when ordering on line. The Cumulus and Nimbus shoes that I have bought work well for me and maintain good cushioning for the running life of the shoe. Then they are relegated to light duty where their good looks is more important. I would recommend these shoes to anyone needing a cushioned, neutral, training, running shoe.

        Comfortable feel, but causing holes in socks

        Verified Reviewer

        Comments about Mens ASICS GEL-Cumulus 18 Running Shoe:

        The shoes feel great when I run, but for some reason, my sock keeps wearing a hole in it by my big toe. I don't know if it's the size or the way the material across the toe is located. I am going to have to go into the store and talk to one of the experts. I might have to change shoes. My Cumulus 17 never gave me this problem.

        Comments about Mens ASICS GEL-Cumulus 18 Running Shoe:

        Had the shoes two weeks; great shoe with lots of cushion. I have had several pairs of the Cumulus and Kayanos all were sized the same. At that same size these Cumulus 18s fit too snug, so I exchanged them for a 1/2 size larger and the fit was better. I appreciate the simplicity RoadRunner has developed for such exchanges.

        Comments about Mens ASICS GEL-Cumulus 18 Running Shoe:

        Have been using cumulus series shoes for 22 years, now for recreational jogging, the past few series had been too tight, and then too lose after time, the series 18 feel like the originals, though I've had foot issues and at least one operation, theses new pair make my feet feel comfortable and cool, even when jogging in the Texas afternoon heat. I'm in my sixties and retired, but I still try to get out there, excellent "hoof covers" for the "old doggies". Thank you

        Comments about Mens ASICS GEL-Cumulus 18 Running Shoe:

        I've been in the Cumulus since 2005 and each year I hold my breath that the new model doesn't change to the point that it's no longer the same shoe. This 18 is true to the Cumulus fit. They're comfortable and durable. Roomy toe box and snug throughout the mid foot and heel.

        I have been running in the Nimbus for 25 years, but I found I did not like the hard heel counter since version 18. I tried the Cumulus and found them to be a nice cushioned ride, and no firm heel problems.

          Comments about Mens ASICS GEL-Cumulus 18 Running Shoe:

          I used to run in the Cumulus for years, but at some point they changed the mold and made the toe box very narrow and not true to the other models of Asics I wear. I had hoped they have improved over the years, but such is not the case, so I have returned these shoes and gone back to the Nimbus which is true to size. Of course the are quite a bit more expensive.
