    by fromSidewalk walking Comfortable, 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!

    by fromAbsolutely love these shoes! As a pharmacy technician, I stand on my feet all day every day. Before wearing these at work, I was wearing an expensive brand of nurses shoe. I have to say that these shoes do not even compare. I have extremely flat feet and according to the website's recommendation, decided to try the Gel-Forte. Best decision I have ever made. When wearing my expensive nurses shoes, there were times where I would get home from work and barely be able to walk. However, while wearing these I have not had any problems at all. Seriously, NO PAIN! They have definitely been a life saver. I will definitely wear this pair into the ground and order the exact same ones next time to do it all over again. Thanks ASICS!

    by fromA 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.

    by fromNot a typical Asics - too bad Had 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.
