    Comments about Womens ASICS GEL-Cumulus 16 Running Shoe:

    Just bought these shoes on Friday and tested them out on Saturday. Went for a 10.5 mile run on pavement and had no problems. I found them to be better than the 15's. My previous pair was a Cumulus 15 which took a couple of days to break in. I had no issues with the toe box and found they had more room. This pair was great straight out of the box. Great cushioning for heel strikers. I always buy 1/2 size bigger and found the fit to be fine. Happy with my purchase.

          Comments about Womens ASICS GEL-Cumulus 16 Running Shoe:

          I've worn lots of Asics Gel shoes - my current favorite is the Gel Excel 33.3 which is a fantastic shoe. My favorite everyday shoe for walking is the Nimbus. Enter the Cumulus.

          I do not know what they did but this shoe is stiff like a board and has no flexibility once on your foot. It is not comfortable - the fit is totally off. The upper feels stiff and a bit almost scratchy to me - with light socks. They are far more narrow than previous versions - and I'm talking about the wide version! My toes were not comfortable. Going up another 1/2 size didn't work because then the arch and fit was off. I'll stick to my other Gel versions - I strongly recommend if you've liked other Asics Gel shoes that you try these on first and do a test run on the treadmill at RRS to see if these are going to work for you.

            Been wearing the Asic Cumulus for years. These shoes have great cushion and arch support. I run 20-30 miles a week on pavement and have had no issues with these (with the exception of the Cumulus 14's). I like the Cumulus better than the Brooks Ghost because I feel the Cumulus has more cushioning and is more flexible. Remember to order a 1/2 size up!

            I do 24 miles weekly. I run on the treadmill and on the road. It is a pretty shoes but the cushioning is poor. Not enough! I did my half marathon Friday and could not wait to finish. The shoes ran well on the road but without comfort. It is firm and the sole is too flat. My achilles tendon are tight as a result of using these shoes. THE SHOES IS NOT FLEXIBLE.

              I've been running in the Cumulus's for years, never ever a problem. Always could wear right out of the box. This was my first pair of 16's, avid to try the newest release. They felt small when I first got them. I thought it was because of all of the cushioning and would just flatten out after my first run. They were just okay. After a 10-mile race, my big toe turned purple and my foot was cramped the entire time. Needless to say, these were going back. Customer Service was very helpful. I'll be sticking to the 15's until I can go to a store and try on the 16's.

              Great cushioning but the wide version seems not wide enough. Would have liked more variety in colors. The gel is great. Haven't tested durability yet.

                I use this shoes for running on the treadmill. Its pretty but its not flexible at all. Too stiff. I need a shoes with proper cushioning. When compared to the Brook 5 and Saucony ride 6,these are far better to run in for neutral feet runners.

                  I run about 15-20 miles a week. I have bought the Cumulus ASICS model since the 11. It is usually consistent but some numbers (like the 14) felt stiffer and not as "cloud like". They went back to what I love with the 15 and have done a great job with this 16 as well. There are no surprises in the fit and feel if you've used the Cumulus before. If you haven't, it has the most cushion I have found in a running shoe, which I really like.

                    I like to zumba and jog. Very comfortable for both activities! I have pretty collapsed feet so I always wear custom foot orthotics in my athletic shoes--- so I'm not sure how supportive the shoe is alone as I immediately transferred inserts into them.
