    This is my first pair of ASICS and I love them! I followed the advice given in other reviews and ordered 1/2 size up. I have a narrow foot with a high arch. These shoes are a perfect fit. I wear them for walking with interval jogging.

    I'm a runner and have completed several half marathons and marathons. I've been a faithful Asics user for years, and was extremely disappointed in these. Despite ordering wides, the toe-box is extremely narrow and caused blistering. Order up a full size.

    Really enjoyed a pair of Asics I had in the past. Frugal person that I am figured that adding an over-the-counter pair of arch supports would prolong their life. They did. But I lost sight of the benefits of a fresh pair of Asics until I finally broke down and invested in a new pair. Oh my, there's a bounce in my step again...first time in years. There's really no substitute. Don't spend money on arch supports when your shoes get old. Just get a new pair of Asics!

    I saw the other reviews about this version being narrow so I ordered a wide in my normal size. It was too short and too narrow. I need to find a different Asics model to try. I have been wearing Cumulus for 4 years. I still love this shoe. I will have to wait for the next version and hope it gets better.

    I have purchased the Gel-Cumulus shoes for years in the same size and was always pleased with their performance/fit. With this version though I found that the toe box was more narrow, and about 2 miles into my run my pinkie toe was being pushed under my other toes. I ordered the shoe again in a half size up and would suggest others adjust their order the same for this shoe if they want to try it.
