    The REI Member Dividend

    The REI dividend is a unique benefit of membership in the REI co-op. It's comprised of your member refund—typically 10% back on eligible purchases—and/or your REI Visa® card rebates.

    Each March, active REI members and REI Visa cardholders who earned a rebate receive a refund in the form of an annual dividend notice.

    Only active members receive annual dividend notices. To maintain your active status as an REI member, you need to make net merchandise or shipping purchases of at least $10 per year, unless you joined that year. Member numbers are issued in one name and only that person receives the member refund. Your number can be used by others in your family, but it cannot be transferred to someone else.

    ASICS GEL-Forte Road-Running Shoes - Women'sis rated4.2out of5by5.
    Rated5out of5byfromSidewalk walkingComfortable, cushy and my feet don't get too hot. I do a lot of walking every day as my exercise and needed a shoe that would hold up for 7 or 8 miles a day, so far so good!

    Rated2out of5byfromNot a typical Asics - too badHad to go a 1/2 size larger to fit into it and then it was too wide. Not good control while walking due to inappropriate sizing.

    Rated4out of5byfromA Worth Successor to the Gel Evolution?I've worn Asics for years and have always worn a size 9.5 but I had to go up to a size 10 in these shoes. Though I know feet tend to grow with age, that's not the case here. This model definitely runs small. A local store that specializes in running shoes had advised me that the overall fit of this shoe is snug and that has proved to be true. I have what one REI salesperson called a "low volume foot" and these shoes feel snug all over, which is good for me but not good for someone with a traditional medium-width foot. I bought these to replace the Asics Gel Evolution, which has been discontinued. Asics advised that this model is supposed to replace the Evolution. I am a severe pronator and the Evolution was terrific for me. I haven't worn the Gel Fortes enough to know if they're a good successor.
