Rated 1 out of 5 by Nickname Knee problem, coming right up!
I am healthy and have never had knee problems. I bought these shoes because the tread looked good, and the price was right. I'm not going to pay $150 for tennis shoes, you know? After training for my first half-marathon for about a month and getting in some long 10 mile runs on the weekends, my left knee started killing me. I decided not to run in the half-marathon, and took several weeks off. Bought a CVS knee sleeve and resumed running. Now, both my left and right knees are killing me! At the advice of my running friends, I will be throwing these shoes in the garbage. I don't want anyone picking these up at the Goodwill Store. Gel-Sidelined would be a more appropriate name for these cheapies.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Doozie47 Very comfortable
Someone told me to try Asics tennis shoes. Penny's had the best deal of all. I ordered the Asics Gel-Contend and loved them. They have a lot of cushion and support. I liked them so much that I ordered another pair of a different color.

Bought the shoes when I started a new job at a hospital where I would be on my feet for extended periods of time. They are very comfortable.

I've been buying this brand of shows for more that 30 years, and this latest pair continues the happy tradition of total satisfaction.

Rated 5 out of 5 by AstronomyBoy Wide width and comfortable running shoe at a reasonable price
ASICS provides non-leather running shoes in a wide width that I need to be comfortable. Like many people, my feet are not the same size and they are wider than normal. My ASICS Gel running shoes are quite comfortable and the extra width helps both my natually large width and accommodates the size difference between my left and right foot. I like the style and the lightness of the material; they are also reasonably priced. I only buy ASICS. As a vegetarian I appreciate the man-made material.

These shoes fit well and are comfortable. I have not had them very long so I do not know how long they will last.

Rated 5 out of 5 by donreno Good quality vs competitors
Have heard Asic's are chosen often by professional runners and wanted to try them at my budget. Great fit and comfort. I require a 4E wide shoe and these were available, hard to find athletic shoes in this width. Would recommend these for people with foot problems associated with pain caused by arthritis.

Asics are my brand for "tennies". They fit great and are so comfortable, (which is important because I have hard to fit feet).
I always look on JCP website for sales when it's time to buy my next pair and have always found a pair that will work for my needs at a very reasonable price. I pick the shoes up at the store so I can try them on there and make sure they fit, plus no shipping!
