      Comments about Mens ASICS GEL-Intensity Cross Training Shoe:

      I bought these specifically for P90x after reading the reviews, in particular the Plyometrics. This is my second time through p90x (the first I only made it about 1/2 way) however I remember how big of a mistake it was wearing a pair of an old pair of running shoes the first time I did Plyo. My feet were DESTROYED, blisters, aches and pains.

      Well after this morning, the other reviews on this shoe are completely dead on. Maybe not the best crosstrainer, I don't know, I don't have much to compare it to but I know that after doing Plyo my feet are good, no blisters and no rubbing. Now if I could just say the same for my quads and calves.

      I'm not a professional and I know that buying the best will not improve my performance dramatically however I am a believer in the equipment not hampering your performance. If you are doing P90x, P90x+ or Insanity, give these shoes a look.

      Comments about Mens ASICS GEL-Intensity Cross Training Shoe:

      Versatile and sturdy all around trainer. It's amazing how difficult it is to find a good cross-training shoe. Obviously not as much arch support as Asics running shoes, but great ankle support for lateral movement and cutting. Can definitely double as a tennis shoe. The added rubber to the front of the shoe provides nice padding and protection that will keep your soles intact. I typically wear a 10 in Asics, but found that a 10 in this shoe is a bit roomier (suggest going down half a size).

        My knee had been swelling and, once I switched to these from what I had been wearing, it began to subside. The shape is perfect for support and alignment of foot and ankle, which took pressure off my knee. Love these!

                  I have bought 4+ pairs of these shoes during the last year. Terrific fit, great heel protection, light weight, very durable. Use them for the gym, for short runs and, most importantly, for fencing practice. Fencing is brutal on shoes, but these hold up really well.

                          These shoes provide good stability during weight training workouts. Was looking for a little more stability for in the weight room than my running shoes provided so I gave these a try. I am happy with the purchase.

                          Awesome shoe. Very good stability, good cushioning. I've been playing racquetball in them and have been pleasantly surprised how well they have performed. They are a true cross training in that I think they would be good for a number of indoor sports; racquetball/squash, tennis, vooleyball, aerobics, weight training, etc. The only reason I gave 4 stars instead of five is that they are a touch narrow in between the fore and mid-foot area. But then again, I have weird-shaped feet and have a hard time finding shoes that fit well so they probably would fit most people very well. I intend on ordering at least one more pair to make sure I have a supply after they are eventually discontinued.

                          Versatile and sturdy all around trainer. It's amazing how difficult it is to find a good cross-training shoe. Obviously not as much arch support as Asics running shoes, but great ankle support for lateral movement and cutting. Can definitely double as a tennis shoe. The added rubber to the front of the shoe provides nice padding and protection that will keep your soles intact. I typically wear a 10 in Asics, but found that a 10 in this shoe is a bit roomier (suggest going down half a size).
