Great, solid shoe for short runs

4

This is a great shoe, in general. I chose it instead of the $140 Asics Gel Kayano. I have VERY wide feet and I bought a 10wide. The shoe is very comfortable in size and Asics has always been great for me in that sense. The only thing I would say is this shoe is a lot heavier than the Gel Kayano and has MUCH less arch support. I am missing the arch support but I am a 10-minute miler so not a weight freak. For a casual runner like me, this is a great alternative and around $50 cheaper. My last pair lasted a year with running 3x per week 4-5 miles so I am very happy with Asics overall. If great arch support is what you need, spring for the Gel Kayano.

STELLAR, Sexy, and FANTASTIC!

I bought these sweet puppies 3 days before a marathon. I laced them up and they proved to be what I had anticipated...GREAT SOLID SHOES. I'm totally partial to ASICS anyway, as I've run in them since the age of 12. 24 Years later, they're still the most solid shoe. This particular model felt GREAT out there on the 26 paved miles enroute to the finish line. They are a solid distance shoe that doesn't feel like a clog, nor a pillow. I'm super stoked on them and I give them a double thumbs up. Happy RUNNING;-)

Aching feet? Try these on for comfort!

I wear these shoes nearly all day every day. Great for the gym or just walking outside. They are SO comfortable and provide great support. I used to have to wear custom orthotics in my shoes, but not with these. And, I haven't had a day of foot pain since I started wearing them! I do wish they came in colors other than white. The white mesh can be difficult to keep clean. I'm on my 3rd pair and will definitely buy them again!

Love these shoes!

I've been wearing these shoes for years and love them. I need motion control and these work great for me. I've tried other shoes over the years and have kept coming back to these. Now I don't even shop other shoes. The only con I have with them is that they are a bit on the big/clunky side so they don't look good with regular clothes and they take up a lot of room in the suitcase. But as far as running goes, I love them!

Great shoe, but not for me

4

With my full length custom orthotics, this shoe was just way too stiff. I've previously worn Brooks for my support needs, and I'll be going back to them henceforth. This is a great and comfortable shoe, but there was too much motion control and too much heel cushion--I could never find my stride running in these shoes. Like I said, they are VERY comfortable, but they didn't meet my running needs.

Solid stability running shoes

4

I have been a big fan of the Evolution 4s for many years. I wasn't sure if I'd like the 5s or not. I need a stability shoe and was hoping that the fit of the 5s would be as good as 4s. I've taken several long runs in the 5s and they seem great so far. My only complaint is the bright white color. I run on mixed road/trails and wish that they were grey.

I am recovering from a fractured lateral tibial plateau and these shoes provide me with the support and comfort needed to get back to walking again. I have worn them in the past to work out and to walk outdoors, but with this injury they have been a god send! I really cannot think of anything I don't like about them.

Having had 2 surgeries for plantar faciaitis this is basically the only shoe i have worn for years. My ortthotics fit, it is wide enough for my foot, anf d it gives great support. Whether teaching on my feet, walking the trails with my dog, exercise, shopping, you name it, I'm in my asics!

great shoe

I had to return this shoe because one of them began to pinch my outer little toe. Only one did this and I've never had that problem before. I always wear Asics. This is my first sizing problem after having worn the shoe for several days. The heel of this shoe is really snug which actually felt great and secure. I would give this shoe another try [...]

Great shoe!

Love these shoes. My physical therapist recommended that because i pronate. the have a good heel cup that really supports the ankle. I have never had a pair of shoes like it. Only down is the toe box feels really wide in the size i usually take. I think i would order 1/2 size down next time

My only sneaker

5

I love this sneaker- it's the only one I have used since I began running 4 years ago. After a recommendation from the folks at RR, I purchased these for the motional control. I buy up a half size as suggested and find the fit to be perfect. I run 5-6 days a week, currently training for a half, and my asics never let me down!

caused blister on heel

3

The Asics Gel-Evolution 5 felt great in the store. The toe box was wide enough for my slightly wider than normal feet. Even though I my arch is normal I would have liked for the shoe to have a little bit more arch support. The first time I wore the shoes I had gone for a one hour walk on the sidewalks and by the time I got back home I had a big blister on my right foot at the inside area of my heel. I think it was rubbing on the shoe insert that comes with the shoe. I can say that I would recommend the shoe aside from the issue I had with the heel blister. Sadly, I returned the shoes.

Asics is the best

Great for folks with flat feet and pronation control. Wide toe box prevents my toes from hitting the shoe and getting blisters.

no more knee/back pain

4

I run between 18 and 25 miles a week on roads and no longer have knee or back pain since trying this shoe. I added an insert on the advice of a roadrunner advisor and am glad I did. The standard insole is not very cushioned, but is easily switched out for a better feeling insole.

Terrific Sneakers

5

Bought a pair of running sneakers that are another brand and had to get these and use the others for just regular walking sneakers. These feel great when you take them out of the box and don't hurt at all. You can just put them on and go.

LOVE this running shoe!

5

Have always been the "buyer" to get the shoe on sale. Finally decided to buy the shoe that suits me best. LOVED the Asics Gel Evolution. Might be on the pricey side but for the lower-arched / over-pronator, 100% worth the price. Would definitely buy again!

I love these shoes and ...

I love these shoes and wear them everyday! I pronate badly and these give me enough motion control support that I can get through my day without twisting my ankles. I use to wear the evolution 2 and loved them. I tried the evolution 4 and could not wear them. I have not had any problems with blisters like some of the other reviewers. My guess is they got the wrong size. I was told when I purchased my evolution 5's that these run short so go up a size. I am normally an 8.5W and got a 9W.

Comfort and support for low arches

5

Already bought one pair so this was my second. I have low arches and RoadRunner helped me to pick out the perfect Asics. These provide great arch support, are lightweight for running, are comfortable, supportive, and roomy.

I have finally found the perfect running sneaker for my flat arches! I had the toughest time finding the right ones......and here they are! They offer great support and have a wonderful wide toe box! I'm sold on Asics! This will be my forever brand of sneaker! :)

Great Shoe

I have had arch problems in the past...having run 30-40 miles a week, I hate to be sidelined with a injury. These shoes are reliable and my arch supports fit in the shoes easily!

Very good shoe. Have been wearing for several years and very happy. I have an extremely flat foot and this is one of the few shoes I have worn that do not break down my feet. Will continue to buy over and over again,

This is my third pair of the Gel Evolution 5. I just recently had my gait reassessed to find out that I should be running in a neutral shoe, but I like this motion control.

These were not a cushy as usual. I am trying to embrace the new trend of 'less is more', but I guess at the end of the day, I really like cushy shoes.

Feels much better on bunion area than the Asics Foundation; more cushion in general. Haven't worn it long enough to evaluate wear or best use. Comfortable right out of the box.

Finding a running shoe ...

5

Finding a running shoe with adequate arch support for flat fleet has been a challenge. The Asics Evolution is my go to shoe. Great support and all around comfort. For very flat feet like mine, I would suggest using an even more supportive insole (ie, Superfeet GREEN).

Love this shoe. Asics is great for runners with narrow heels but wide forefeet (or bunions), and the Evolution in particular has really solid motion control. They take an orthotic well without compromising the shoe's structure, and they have never given me a single blister. So comfortable I want to wear them all the time, but not heavy either.

These shoes are great! My right foot is a little flat, and these shoes provide support help with knee and low back pain. My arch support inserts fit well which makes this shoe a great all around shoe, for running, x-cross traning and walking or even running errands. I had several pairs of the Ascis Foundation shoe before I updgraded to these. This is the second pair of the Evoultions and I am still loveing'em.

i've ran in evolution 2s, 3s, and 5s. 2 and 5 have definitely been the best for me. never had a problem with the 5s and just bought my second pair of 5s to start training for a marathon. i tried on the evolution 4s when they first came out and instantly knew that they didn't fit right for me.

Ran a half marathon in these and would do it again. Recently switched to half a size up to prevent balck toe. Need I say it worked wonders? These are better than the Evolution 4, but not the 1 or 2s.

This shoe gave my pinky toes blisters. There is stitching on the outer part of the shoe that causes a "nub" on the inside of the shoe, that rubbed against my toes causing blisters. Had to return them after one run. I've never had a blister in my life until now.
