Customer Reviews

Comments: I love this shoe and agree with both of the previous comments. However, less than 300 miles, it already has a hole in the toe box already. Not sure if other people have the same problem.
From: Ken. August 28th 2014

Comments: Coming directly from the Kinvara and Virrata (pretty firm), which I really like, this is the first Asics in 15+ years. First impressions: Noticeably softer than the Sauconys, but much better road feel, and I really appreciate the lack of a plastic heel counter, although the Sauconys were minimal. Excellent forefoot room. I did have a day or two of achilles come-and-go twinges, but they subsided and I'm in the shoe full-time now. I'd buy it again. Nicely done, w/ no overlays.

Comments: This is a really amazing shoe for tempo training and it can also be used in races as well. I've been told also this shoe can be used for a marathon. It is very well cushioned and gives you a lot of toe room. Order this shoe true to size.
