Customer Reviews

Comments: Fairly happy with this revision of the Asics Cumulus. This is the 3rd revision I have ran in. I didn't like the 15, but the 14 and 16 have done a good job for me I think. Good cushion without feeling unresponsive. Good mileage out of all 4 pairs of the Cumulus that I have ran in. Being 5'-3" and 118lbs, I'm not the roughest person on shoes, so I can speak for people or larger weight. I feel that the shoe is slightly heavy for my liking, but as a daily trainer, and mild tempo runs, the shoe works well. For interval/track/hard tempo runs, I am using the Asics Gel NoosaFast 2; also a solid shoe.

Comments: This is a very good shoe. It has a lot of cushioning for long runs, and is just light enough for speed training.

Comments: The best, by far, Asiscs Cumulus model yet. More forefoot cushioning (larger gel pad) and yet it feels flexibile and not, at all, mushy. Have used for both longer training runs plus in 10K race and I am very pleased overall. Lighter weight and yet a consideralbe improvement over the prior 15 model! Highly recommend these for neutral runners looking for solid cushioning, nice fit, durable outsole plus a responsive shoe.

Comments: RunningWarehouse does a great job of shipping your order. This is a very comfortable, cushioned shoe that does not do any gait correction which is what I was looking for. May possibly buy another pair. Size 9 4E.
