I've just tried to but another pair of Cumulus but the shop told me Asics have changed the colour and it will be a couple of weeks before they get their order in. Does anybody know if Asics have changed anything other than the cosmetics of the Cumuls? I had a bad experience last year, when Nike messed about with the Pegasus, which I don't want to repeat so if anybody has any info it would be great.
I was using the 2004 Pegasus throughout my marathon training and was really happy with them. Based on this I bought the 2005 version but I stopped using them after about 4 weeks. I found them narrower than the previous model and while I didn't get any blisters I did pick up an IT Band problem which I never had with my old Pegasus. I don't honestly know whether the new shoes contributed to this or not but I've changed over to the Asics Cumulus now and find them a lot better.
