    By Anonymous

    from Undisclosed

    Comments about Womens ASICS GEL-Intensity:

    I do not like to spend a lot of money on cross trainers (I paid the list prices), but this shoe is absolutely worth it. I use these in the gym for wt training and different types of aerobic classes instead of my running shoes. They offer great stability for lateral movement and a lot of cushioning for impact. I only wear Asics (have been wearing them for 10+ years), and this has been my favorite shoe so far--I have even run in them a few times. Lately I have been suffering with issues with my toes and my feet seemed cramped in my regular running shoes-- this shoe offers plenty of room in the toe box. Overall, it is a very comfortable, light-weight, good looking shoe. I highly recommend it.

    This shoe offers the best arch support I've ever experienced in ANY shoe. I have high arches. It has nice cushioning and great fit. Order half size up as suggested.

    This is the absolute #1 cross trianer I've had! Lots of cushioning in the forefoot and heel for impact training, and stability for weight training. I am so impressed! Buy 1/2 size up for best fit.

    Comments about Womens ASICS GEL-Intensity:

    The fit and support on these shoes happily went beyond my expectation. I have chronic plantar fasciaitis and like the arch support I get from Chaco's sandals. This is the only pair of shoes that I have tried that allows me to go 3mi daily w/o causing the inflation to worsen to the point I have to skip a day. I also love the fit. I have narrow heels and have a hard time finding a shoe that doesn't let my foot slip or make it sore from being too tight across my forefoot. The conforming heel really works and is super comfortable. I love the asymmetrical lacing design. It allows me to tighten the shoe enough to hold my foot in without cramping the toebox/forefoot area. Wish all my shoes had it.The lateral support is above average allowing me to make quick turns or pivots without having to worry about ankle rollover. Would definitely buy again, just wish the colors/styling was more sophisticated so I could wear it with stuff other than sports clothes.

    By Shannon

    Comments about Womens ASICS GEL-Intensity:

    I have worn these for a step class, another group exercise class, and on the elliptical and at first I had to adjust the laces a few times for a better fit, but my heel still slightly comes up. The ankle "support" is fairly stiff but does provide lateral support. Overall nice and lightweight and fairly comfortable after adjusting the laces a few times (too tight= my feet felt like they were falling asleep, too loose= my heel comes up).

    By MM8

    from Undisclosed

    Comments about Womens ASICS GEL-Intensity:

    Great shoe...lightweight and not bulky like some crosstrainers. I use these for gym classes (BOSU, STEP, sculpting) and elliptical workouts instead of my running shoes, which provided the wrong type of support and made my feet and ankles hurt!
    The overall aesthetic of the shoe is a nice bonus...there is a flower detail on the metallic portions and the color is pretty neutral.
    The only drawback (if you can call it that) is the cushioning/support around the ankle...some people might find it awkward or even painful at first, but it defintiely serves a purpose.

      I am a real gym rat who participates in numerous classes including boot camp, step, and strength training. These sneakers are great. They offer enough room for my inserts, great lateral support, and overall comfort and support in the gym.

      I have a solid medium foot and ordered my normal sneaker size which is 1/2 size larger than my everyday shoes. I'd definitely purchase another pair.

      Comments about Womens ASICS GEL-Intensity:

      I ordered the 9, which is what I've ordered in past in Asics. There is NO extra room. I did not send them back because they seem to fit OK, but there is no extra room in toe and they are very snug in width. Maybe they would say that it was good fit, but they just seem to run tight. I don't remember my old Asics fitting this way at first (of course, now they are really loose since I've had them so long). I did forget how bouncy new shoes were. I am thankful for the comfort and squish!

      Comments about Womens ASICS GEL-Intensity:

      These are great shoes for cross training and weight lifting. They have good lateral support. My only complaint is that the heal slips a little, I wish the heal fit like my Nimbus running shoes. As a personal trainer, these are much more comfortable than running shoes while I am working.

        I have had a nagging case of plantar fasciitis and some peroneal pain for the last year and a half, so I HAVE to get the best shoes I can afford for the high impact interval workouts I do. I am so happy with this shoe. Granted, I only did one workout so far, but they were so cushy and kept my feet from sliding laterally, which my running shoes (Asics Gel Cumulus) were not designed for. Also, I wore them as is, without superfeet insoles I normally wear, and no pain! Yay! Thanks to all the other raters on here, whose reviews helped me decide on this shoe! It really helped with my decision, and I couldn't be more pleased.

            I use these shoes for general circuit/aerobic training with occasional running. Very comfortable with room for my toes and good lateral support for aerobics. I bought 1/2 size larger than I usually buy. While they feel maybe slightly larger than typical I like the extra room, so I would say they are generally true to size. Already my favorite workout shoes.

                I purchased these for cardio and body sculpting classes. Even with inserts, they do not provide enough arch support and the rubber soles are very stiff and do not have good traction on the wood floors in the gym. They are ok, but I am going to try something else. (I wear Asics running shoes, which is why I tried Asic X-Trainers).

                  Asics will never let you down. I ordered these a half size too big based on the reviews and had to send that back for my usual size. They still feel a little long but I'll keep them. I needed something other than a running sneaker for classes at the gym. Light weight, comfortable. They feel a little high around my heel but not to the point where they're uncomfortable.

                    Great shoe- bought for use with lifting, cross training, and bootcamp style classes. Great support and excellent for pronation. I saw many reviews that this shoe runs small and I was nervous about getting my usual size 8 for Asics. The shoe is a bit snugger than my Asics running shoes (I've been wearing Asics for 7 years now), but I would have been uncomfortable if I went a whole size up. Fabulous shoe!

                      great for aerobics and other "gym" activities when you need less traction on the floor to slide/turn. More severe pronators will need inserts but there is plenty of room. Finally a supportive shoe I can wear in the gym.

                        I am a nurse on my feet many hours a day. I work out 5 days a week and wear these shoes everywhere I go! They are awesome and now my legs don't hurt anymore after a long day at work or while I'm exercising. I finally found the perfect shoes for me!!

                        I do not like to spend a lot of money on cross trainers (I paid the list prices), but this shoe is absolutely worth it. I use these in the gym for wt training and different types of aerobic classes instead of my running shoes. They offer great stability for lateral movement and a lot of cushioning for impact. I only wear Asics (have been wearing them for 10+ years), and this has been my favorite shoe so far--I have even run in them a few times. Lately I have been suffering with issues with my toes and my feet seemed cramped in my regular running shoes-- this shoe offers plenty of room in the toe box. Overall, it is a very comfortable, light-weight, good looking shoe. I highly recommend it.

                        This shoe offers the best arch support I've ever experienced in ANY shoe. I have high arches. It has nice cushioning and great fit. Order half size up as suggested.

                        This is the absolute #1 cross trianer I've had! Lots of cushioning in the forefoot and heel for impact training, and stability for weight training. I am so impressed! Buy 1/2 size up for best fit.

                        I have worn these for a step class, another group exercise class, and on the elliptical and at first I had to adjust the laces a few times for a better fit, but my heel still slightly comes up. The ankle "support" is fairly stiff but does provide lateral support. Overall nice and lightweight and fairly comfortable after adjusting the laces a few times (too tight= my feet felt like they were falling asleep, too loose= my heel comes up).

                        These are great shoes for cross training and weight lifting. They have good lateral support. My only complaint is that the heal slips a little, I wish the heal fit like my Nimbus running shoes. As a personal trainer, these are much more comfortable than running shoes while I am working.

                        Great shoe...lightweight and not bulky like some crosstrainers. I use these for gym classes (BOSU, STEP, sculpting) and elliptical workouts instead of my running shoes, which provided the wrong type of support and made my feet and ankles hurt! The overall aesthetic of the shoe is a nice bonus...there is a flower detail on the metallic portions and the color is pretty neutral. The only drawback (if you can call it that) is the cushioning/support around the ankle...some people might find it awkward or even painful at first, but it defintiely serves a purpose.
