I love Asics running trainers and have used them for years. I am normally very pleased with Asics trainers. However, this trainer was disappointing. I always buy a size larger than my shoe size to allow for foot spread when running. These trainers come up as very slim fitting and my foot feels slightly cramped when running. I have a slim foot, anyone with a wide foot will have problems with this trainer. I shall keep using the trainers and hope with use, they will become less cramped. The style is bright, not too garish, as some trainers can be. Very light and well made, the usual Asics quality. But be warned, they are slim fitting.
