I bought these shoes for walking. Normally, I use my worn running shoes for walking, but the last set blew out the heel support. I've worn Asics for years and always up size by 1/2, which I did with these. To compare with my running shoes, the heel is very wide, the cushion is non-existent, the seams rub, the shoe box is extra wide and if wasn't for my orthotics my ankle bone would be hitting the shoe sides. I will be returning these shoes.
I ordered to use at the gym mostly on the elliptical. I have a narrow foot but for the elliptical the shoe width doesn't usually matter. They don't need to be tight. This shoe was by far the widest "D" width Asics I have ever had. I have a neon -33 which is "D" width and fits me fine.
