Sizing Issues

By Sheri

Verified Reviewer

Comments about Womens ASICS GEL-Cumulus 18 Running Shoe:

I should have listened to the reviews regarding sizing issues. I ordered a 10 in this brand/model - as I usually do - but not only were the shoes too small, lengthwise, but they also seemed narrower than usual. Unfortunately, I will be returning these shoes asap.

Love the shoes but hate the toe box

By Deanna

from undisclosed

Verified Buyer

Comments about Womens ASICS GEL-Cumulus 18 Running Shoe:

I studied these shoes for a while before purchasing. Almost all of the reviews denote the small toe box for these. That is indeed true and that would be my only complaint about them. I do like the support but I am not at a point I can wear them for a long time yet, as they are tight across the top of my toes and become uncomfortable. I even adjusted my size from what I normally wear to accommodate for the small area across the toes.

Narrow toe box

By Dawn

Verified Buyer

Comments about Womens ASICS GEL-Cumulus 18 Running Shoe:

After running in the Asics gel cumulus 17, the 18 was disappointing. The toe box is considerably more narrow so I was unable to wear them. I wear an 8 D and they were entirely too narrow for me.

Comments about Womens ASICS GEL-Cumulus 18 Running Shoe:

I recently purchased a pair of Asics Gel Cumulus 18. I have had issues with Plantar Fasciitis and was in need of a good shoe. I went to get properly sized at Run Moore in Westminster' Md and I was matched up with this shoe. I then purchased a pair through Roadrunner sports. I received the shoes around May 10th and immediately began wearing them to work. Last week which is barely two months and not even 250 miles of walking, holes developed in the front. I try to baby my shoes no rain and office only. I am very disappointed because I love them other than that. I can't say I would buy again or leave a 5 star review at this point, which is a shame.

      Comments about Womens ASICS GEL-Cumulus 18 Running Shoe:

      Even though I read the comments about the Asics running small now I just didn't believe them. I ordered my regular 8.5 D and I couldn't even get my foot in all the way they were so small. Very disappointing as the Asics are so comfortable. I returned and I am not going up in size because I don't have to in any other shoe! I also bought the Nike Pegasus 34 in the same size and will keep them because I need new sneakers. I've never worn Nike before and they feel good, just not as good as an Asics that is sized correctly.

      Why change a good thing??

      By Joanne

      Verified Buyer

      Comments about Womens ASICS GEL-Cumulus 18 Running Shoe:

      Asics had made A few very undesirable changes to their sneakers this year. The size has changed, the christening has changed and I warn anybody that is ordering online "as usual" we should go to the store and try them out first. I had to go up an entire size and they're making them go to the store and try them out first. I had to go up an entire size and they're making them narrower more narrow.
      Returned them to the store and tried on several other styles and brands. Even the sales associate said they made changes that people aren't happy with. Bummed!!

      Comments about Womens ASICS GEL-Cumulus 18 Running Shoe:

      This was not a good fit for me. I run 20 miles per week and my toes went numb 1/4 mile into my first five mile run. Afterwards my feet hurt and I could feel a blister coming. I purchased the B width, but may have been better off purchasing the wide. The toe box seems narrow.

      Cushy shoe, great for long walks/runs

      By Larbi

      from undisclosed

      Verified Buyer

      Comments about Womens ASICS GEL-Cumulus 18 Running Shoe:

      I've returned to my Asics Gel-Cumulus after trying a few different brands for my long 2 hour walk/runs. The cushion in these shoes makes those long walks especially comfortable, but when they start to wear down, the cushion feels like a 'too soft pillow' that can't withstand the weight. I like the shape of this shoe and the not too wide toebox that shapes around your foot for a snug fit that, again, is super comfortable until the cushion breaks down.

      A strong alternative to the Nimbus.

      By Allison

      Comments about Womens ASICS GEL-Cumulus 18 Running Shoe:

      I typically run in the Nimbus, but the last one was not as roomy in the toe box, but this Cumulus, while stiffer through the midsole, offers a good return in the heal and strong support through 6-8 mile runs. It also doesn't feel as heavy as the Nimbus, which is also nice.
