Great shoe, not identical to Evolution

    Comments about Womens ASICS GEL-Forte Running Shoe:

    I really like these shoes. I like them better than the Gel Evolution, which I had previously. They are lighter and more agile, fit comfortably and snugly, and provide very firm support and pronation control. I also like that the shoes are not institutional gray... However, I do think the cushioning is less than with the Evolution, and that the shoes are not as wide as the Evolution. These aren't problems for me--I need structure more than cushioning, and my feet are normal to narrow--but may be for some others.

          These shoes are too narrow in the toe area. I've tried running in them for 3 weeks and have had nothing but blisters on my toes. I ordered the widest width available. I normally don't need to do that.

          I didn't want to do a motion control shoe. They are so clunky and large not this one. For the price it worked for me. No plantar fasciitis pain since I have worn this shoe. I was in newtons before and loved them but I had to have more support. So far so good .

            Comments about Womens ASICS GEL-Forte Running Shoe:

            This is a good motion control shoe that combines a light weight feel of a stability shoe with the increased support for overpronating. Most motion control shoes are clunky and feel akin to cement blocks with shoe laces. I use these for powerwalking and visits to the gym. My only complaint is the narrow toe box and all-around smaller fit; however, a few tweeks with a lighter sock adjusted the fit. I have found that the right choice of socks can often determine the effectiveness of a shoe which might be too big when increasing a 1/2 size or width.

              of note; i would say these run true to size, so that by ordering up as advised, i got a shoe that was just too big overall. i didn't feel mush cushioning, especially under the ball of my foot, where i need it more. i returned them.

              I got these as a replacement for my beloved Asics Gel Evolution, which I had worn since 2005.
              These are NOT a good replacement. They just did not feel right on my feet....didn't feel like they corrected my pronation, much narrower toe box, and they just felt strangely stiff.
              I'm sending them back. Trying some Brooks.

                    I have tried a lot of shoes to control my overpronation. I have been running about 20-25 miles per week in these shoes, plus circuit training, and I have noticed a major difference. They are comfortable and make me feel supported. There is not a lot of arch support but surprisingly my arches could care less! I think the overall stability of the shoe makes my feet/ankles/knees feel pretty darn good.

                      This is my second pair of these shoes. I remembered to go up to a D width and they fit perfectly. Most shoes in this category are big and clunky and look like mens. These are the cutest ones out there.

                        I love this shoe. It replaced my brooks addiction which I loved for daily walking but as soon as I started running in them the bottom of my left foot hurt. The asics were recommended to me by a store specialist. I wear othotics for extreme overpronation, have very flat narrow feet and bunion on left foot. I loved these shoes right out of the box and currently am not wearing my othotics with them. So as another reviewere indicated they may be too much for someone with only a small over pronation. I am not running any great distance in them but I find them much lighter than the brooks and way more comfortable. Ive had them about a month so I cant say about durablity yet or for really long runs. Im working my way up. Over all very happy with them and they really attractive!

                        As a over-pronator, I just don't have many choices for motion control shoes. I have bought the expensive ones, only to find that they never last any longer than about 3 months. So, this is my second pair of the Asics Gel Forte.

                          Asics Gel Forte have amazing motion control features. I run 9 miles in them everyday. I have a narrow ankle, and these shoes feel very snug around my ankle. I weigh 100lbs, and theses shoes are definitely not to heavy for my body size. No complaints.

                            I wanted a replacement for the Gel Foundations that are no longer available, but this shoe is not working for me. While I do have a narrow heel and I am an overpronator with flat feet. I also have bunions on my big toes which are squeezed by the narrow front part of the shoe. This shoe also doesn't have the arch support the Foundations had either. I don't feel I could run the long distances that I did in my Foundations. I am very disappointed and am searching once again for a different shoe. Asics, please try again!

                            I got my Asic gel with support as recommended by my sport's medicine doctor to take care of my flat feet. I'm not overweight, but I did get the weight support option. I ordered a half size too big and my normal size. I had to return my normal size shoe, (for store credit).

                            The color is cool and the support is fantastic.

                                  Definitely not a replacement of the Evolution 6. I was using those because they were the best for cushioning my feet whenever I got stress fractures. I didn't love them.....heavier and not so stylish, but they made my foot feel better and that is all that mattered as I just want to keep running. I got these and at first hated them. Not cushioned at all, Quite stiff. But I was determined to give them a try. After a week of breaking them in, I am beginning to enjoy them. But I am now looking for another highly cushioned shoe to protect my feel. I run a lot every day and need something to protect my pounding, flat feet. Might go back to the Kayanos or try the Nimbus. The Foundation 8's were the BEST. Wish they still had that one.

                                        I was leery having to change from the Gel Evolution 6 to the Gel Forte, but my fears were quickly erased after my first run! The Forte is lighter than the Evolution and they were so comfy, right from my first run! My 3rd run in my new Fortes was a half marathon, and I had no problems at all. Thanks, Asics, for another awesome shoe!!

                                            I wore the Gel Evolution series for years due to low arches, over pronation, plantar facititis and bunions. They are the best motion control shoes I ever found after much trial and error. I could always get a good fit by removing the Asics insoles and replacing them with my custom orthotic insoles. Unfortunately, the Evolution has been discontinued and the Forte doesn't have enough room in the toe box (even in D width) to accomodate my orthotic. My toes hit the top of the shoe and its quite uncomfortable even though its only mesh on top. Wish Asics had not changed the design. Back to the drawing board for me.

                                              I consider myself a moderate to sever overpronator. I have been wearing the foundation 10 and moved to this when they were discontinued. This shoe is much more stable than the foundations. It offers much more pronation control. It was too much for me. If you are severely pronated you'll probably like this shoe. If you're looking for a replacement for the foundations this may be a bit much for you. I am a physical therapist and I will likely recommend these to only my severe cases.

                                                Found out I had to choose a 'motion control' shoe in a D width and wasn't impressed with the choices until I came across the Asics Forte's. They are cute and don't feel like bricks on my feet. 20 miles in...so far so good.

                                                  When I first ordered this shoe, I ordered a 10 medium, and it had a very narrow fit. Then I ordered the wide version, it was too wide. I tried to wear a sock in the wide, it felt like the my feet were moving around alot. I tried to put my custom orthotic in 10 medium, and it helped some, but still really not comfortable. I like to walk/run about 4 miles a day. This shoe does not have the cushioning and the comfort level the previous shoe (Gel Evolution 6) they made for flat feet. The color of this shoe is very pretty purple and gray, but the comfort level is another story.

                                                    I like the Gel forte. I have been wwearing the Gel Evolution for years. I am glad these ones finally got some color in them, the evolutions were very bland.
                                                    These fit me just right. I do find the cushioning is less than the Gels. The balls of my foot have gotten sore...don't think I would use these for long runs. These feel much lighter and a little faster. Overall though I do like these.
