Asics Gel Forte Men's Shoes Grey/Blue Customer feedback

Comments: Wore the Asics Evolution for 4 years and bought them all from Running Warehouse. Great shoes- so of course Asics discontinued them this year. This was the replacement and they are terrible. Narrow, very firm shoes that make me feel that I am running on metal plates that force my feet out to the edges. Wore them about 5 times hoping to get used to them. I went to my local running store and got fitted with Brooks and they are great. Avoid this shoe.

Comments: I have been running in Gel Foundations for years (2E) and just bought a pair of Fortes, same size and width. I am having to return the shoe as it is narrower in the arch and toe area. I am going to try a 4E to see if that does the trick. Disappointed in the change of design as I loved the Gel Foundation.

Comments: Way too tight and narrow. I've been in Asics Gel Foundations and the ocassional Gel Evolution for the last 4+ years. This is a really poor substitute. I'm not sure what they were thinking???? Mine are going back.

Comments: This shoe Runs Very Tight.  Followed Shoefitr Recommended size according to the shoe I am currently wearing  which is a NB MR1012. Said the same size in the NB and Asics.  Not True! Very Tight across the top of the Foot and Not Wide as stated.
Will return for Refund.
