              I bought these as a gift for my dad - he would always wear another brand but we convinced him to try Asics last year. He's definitely been converted. The sneakers are very light weight and comfortable. Run very true to size. They were shipped very quickly, and he is breaking them in as we speak.

                    They are all the things I checked above. I would recommend them to anyone that wants a good quality running shoe cheap. They were marked down about $20. I'm very happy with them. I'll let you know about endurance in about a year.

                          Most comfortable pair of "sneakers" I have ever owned. First time I wore them was for an entire day of sightseeing and they were comfortable from the first step--no breaking in needed. The gel cushions very well. They are very light weight.
