Rated 5 out of 5Â by masseraj Nice Running Shoe
I can't believe these are on the Free People website. I just ordered these shoes through an athletic shoe website after reading reviews and much deliberation for the past six months and waiting for them to come back into stock in the aqua color. Every time I researched I kept coming back to this shoe since it seemed they would preform well and I liked the style. After I finally made my purchase, I decided to come take a look at the 'What's New" section on the Free People website and bam... there they where... the same exact shoe! I'm amazed at how coincidental this was! Anyway, my new Asics arrived yesterday and I put them on immediately and found that they where real comfortable and they look great on. I bought the aqua pair and they look exactly as pictured. I'm really super picky about my running shoes since I actually run in them. So I think its important to share what criteria these shoes had to meet for me to purchase them. 1. can't squeeze my foot. I have a normal width foot but sometimes this happens anyway with athletic shoes. These fit the width of my foot perfectly. 2. Room for toes. I can't stand it when I'm running down hill and my toes jam into the front of the shoe. This happened with my cross trainers and bruised my toe to the point that I thought I broke a toe. So far these seem to be ok. Need to go running when the weather is better. 3. Have enough cushion. These have just enough while remaining light and flexible. I wore heels in the city yesterday and my feet really hurt. They didn't after I put these on. 4. Handle a moderate arch. They definitely do that. There is no rubbing or blisters any where on my foot. 5. They are flat for cross training. Hard to do certain types of lunges when your shoe is angled higher in the back. 5. Have to be cute, which they are. In addition to that, I like the fact that when you wear these (unlike my cross trainers) the shoe strings stay tied. After wearing these for half a day now, it seems I don't even have to break them in. Size wise, when I order Athletic shoes I always order a half size bigger since this generally is the rule for athletic shoes. I am normally a 9 and ordered a 9 1/2 which I consider TTS. I hope this is helpful.

Best pair of shoes in my life! Very comfortable! There is much written about these sneakers - it's all true, and I took advantage of previous recommendations and bought half a size bigger.
Rated 5 out of 5Â by hayleycromer Love my new runners!
I bought these shoes as a multi purpose exercise shoe, mainly for walking and the gym (and a little bit of running which I haven't done yet, so cannot comment on supportiveness for this).
Super light and really comfy. Fairly high arch support, which is what I need.
I'm a 9.5 and these are true to size.
Bought the aqua/melon colourway and it's REALLY bright, neon to the max!, but I like them like that!
Recommend these shoes highly for walking/gym, cannot comment for running at this stage.
Rated 5 out of 5Â by planetqueen Another winner from Asics
Asics is my favorite brand of running shoes because they fit so well and are so comfortable. I just love the teal color in these, so when it was time to get new running shoes, these are what I bought. First of all, they are much brighter IRL than in the photo, especially the orange trim. It's a VERY neon pinkish orange. But because it's just the laces and trim, it works. The blue is also a richer teal that it appears on the website, which is fine with me. I think the colors are great. I always buy running shoes 1/2 to 1 full size larger than my street shoe size, which is 5.5 - 6. I went to a running website where you can do a comparison of these shoes to another shoe you already own, and it advised me to buy a 7. They fit great, with plenty of room in the front for thicker socks. I love Asics because they are work well for my feet - I have high arches, narrow heels and a wider forefoot. I have problems with running shoes slipping at the heels, but not these. They are also super lightweight, and have thick tread for trail running. They have lots of padding in the heel, but not so much in the front, so I would not wear them on a very rough trail, or for running on pavement. The shoes themselves are very stretchy, so I can lace them tight without cutting off my circulation. They're so light, they make me feel like I can fly. And the color really makes me happy. If you plan to wear these for running, I'd recommend going up 1/2 to 1 full size. If you're wearing them at the gym or just for hanging out, buying your regular size might work.

The color of the orange is more of a highlighter, but the blue is pretty similar compared to the pictures. These are my favorite sneakers i've ever gotten!! Super comfy, performance ready, and really fashionable. I've gotten several complements on them! The only hassle is to not wear any other crazy colored clothing with them! Otherwise you'll feel like a rainbow haha. But i Definitely recommend these sneakers! Great buy!
