      Like this model as it has ample box for toes. Previous model was too narrow. Thanks for addressing this issue. The material also seems to be more durable in this shoe. Love that it comes ready to run immediately with no breaking in period.

        The 19 model has changed. I've been wearing the DS Trainer for years and have had no problems. As soon as I switched to this model, they were very tight around the top of my feet and they wore blisters on my heels. I cannot remember a running shoe ever creating blisters. Same socks, same everything else.

          I love this shoe although it took some time to break it in. I got pretty bad blisters, but I think part of that was because my previous shoe (Mazuno elixir) had a lower trim line.

            I love these shoes. I have been running in DS Trainer's for many years and have been less than impressed with models in recent years but these - these remind me of why I loved these shoes so many years ago and they remind of the very first pair of Tigers (yes, Tigers) that I purchased many moons ago (and it's not just the hot pink laces). The soles feel good, the shoe fits my foot nicely, they are lightweight, and have a good feel when my foot hits the road.

                I love the DS Trainer for Half-Marathon and Marathon racing. This version rides the same, but I hated the fit. It feels a titch longer, but not enough to size down 1/2 size. My chief complaint is the leather overlay on the heel collar. I blistered both times I wore the shoe and it has to go back. The DS18 flexes nicely as the foot bends and has no overlays that cause this problem. It could break in eventually, but I'm not wrecking my achilles heel area hoping it resolves itself.

                  Comments about Womens ASICS GEL-DS Trainer 19 Running Shoe:

                  I have been wearing the Asics DS Trainer for years. I started with the 16's and have moved up with every year. I had three pairs of the lovely purple 18's. I am in my first pair of 19's currently and have had no trouble straight out of the box. Only complaint is the color. I am not a huge fan (LOVED last year's purple). I have trained and raced in these for my half and full marathon's and plan to continue using them. ** I will add that I DO use orthodics so I am accustomed to just throwing them in and hitting the road. No issues with blisters. They are very lightweight and the new model seems even more flexible than past model's.

                  These shoes are beautiful and have a great firm, snug feel. Walking around, I loved them straight out of the box. But, I went for a 13 mile run, and got terrible blisters between my toes, and thought I was going to have to return them because they were too narrow. My feet seem to have adapted to them, though, or else the upper has stretched a little, and they are now perfect. So, if they aren't perfectly comfortable straight away, you might want to give them a bit of time before returning or sizing up.
