                I use these shoes for running and when I go to the gym. I am female size 9.5 and the 8 men's fit perfectly. I couldn't find a color I liked in women's of similar price. I did not have to break in at all. They seem to be entry level and I don't expect them to last long but they are fine for now. I get ASICS for their arch support.
