                                      These are a solid value. With the coupon code and the free shipping it was a no brainer. These are perfect for normal wear and light to medium activity. I love mine and wear them often. Stylish and comfortable. Whats not to like?

                                            Got a great price on these Asics - was concerned that they would feel cheap. That is not the case at all - very comfotable, true to size fit and very springy for jogging. Beat purchase I've made on athletic shoes in years!
