I ordered a size 6 (I usually wear a size 5 shoe) which I always do with asics as I wear inner soles and thermal socks in winter. Because the trainers are secured with velcro they are very slightly loose. Given the choice, I would purchase with laces in future. Also, I'm assured by my family that these have a very definite walking shoe appearance, not to be confused with a sporty trainer look!

Loved this shoe when it was in the lace-up style but as they are discontinued now, decided to try the Velcro. Apart from the fact they are very old-fashioned looking, it's impossible to get the Velcro tight enough. Sadly going back and my search for the perfect walking trainer goes on.
