A 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.

I run an average of 15 miles a week and these shoes feel GREAT!! And they're pretty darn cute, too.

Negative Reviews:

Not 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.
