Probably the best shoe I've had after trying various brands ove rthe years.

Comfortable to wear, and the extra wide fitting suits nme to a T. It's good that with a 7.5 foot I can wear a shoe that isn't tight on the width.
Non so far, except my right lace keeps coming undone a few times whilst running?

Uncomfortable - gave me blisters

I've had ASICS all my life and they have all been so comfortable. I have 2 pairs of Gel Nimbus 12 and they both give severe blisters on the heel and toe. I can't understand why but very disappointing.

Problem on change from Nimbus 12 to 13

12's excellent, ran 1/2M in 2:19:40 (at age 70yrs) with no problems, changed to 13's and 6 weeks later could only do 2:42 with aching feet. Shop replaced 13's with Adistar ride 3,12's unavailable. The 13's have a much softer midsole and are unsuitable when you need hard arch support.
No problems with 12's. Be careful with switch to 13's.

They took a bit of getting used to after my old Nimbus 9s, but now I wouldn't swap them for anything!

Comfortable, much nicer looking than Nimbus 9s. Very cushioned. My toes don't go numb in them either, which has happened in every other shoe I've ever tried.
Nothing really!
I can see why some people would have trouble getting used to them - they're very comfortable for my feet, but my feet are weird!

I think these are great

I started wearing these when I was suffering with pretty bad shin splints. Along with a couple of massages, these trainers sorted me out just right and I've been injury free ever since (touch wood).
I run 125 miles a month with at least a half marathon every weekend, and I've had these for 5 months and they show no sign of needing replacing yet
Bit pricey but I think you get what you pay for.
I've read some of the negative reviews on here and I couldn't disagree more. It must just be that these shoes suit my foot and running style (neutral to maybe very slight underpronation) perfectly, because these are the best trainers I've owned and I wouldn't hesitate to replace like for like.
