Jeremy - I have used both - Asics gel (various) and have been a regular New Balance user, for the last few years. I am a standard size 10 and I find that Asics in size 10 are a good fit, but if the pair I wear are bigger than my feet (for example size 11 or over) I do find them roomy.

New Balance - again if I wear a size 10 I find them a nice comfy fit, but as with Asics if the size I wear are bigger than my feet they also appear roomy,

A strange issue with the new Balance that I have not experienced with Asics, is that if I wear a size 9, they become tight, and the roomy effect of the size 11 disappears, it's a mystery how this phenomenon affects both brands, and I wonder if they could be made in the same location and just branded differently.

I hope this helps

Wow... The first person I've seen mention the gel foundations! I'm a woman do the sizing may differ but from my shoe - its roomy and very good width wise. I tired saucing and they felt a little restrictive on the top of the foot but the Asics are perfect for me.

Where do you buy yours? I find the regular stores (wiggle,sorts shoes) etc rarely have them in stock

Tried on quite a few pairs of motion contol shoes today and came to the decission that they are too over kill for me,i dont like the lump of plastic that you can feel on your arch,so iam going back to new balence and going to give 860`s a go..

I love nb 859 and i thought it was a motion control but iam now told its a stability shoe,prob why i thought motion c are not right.


back to drawing board!
