Rated 4 out of 5 by Jack's Mom Wish I Didn't Have To Return
I'll start with the good stuff. I bought a pair of ASICS GEL-Kayano 19 after visiting my local Dick's store and having a great experience and fitting there. I had previously ordered a pair of Reebok's online and found that after wearing them for about five minutes that the outsides of both of my feet were in excruciating pain. I overpronate so I decided to take my old sneakers to Dick's and talk to someone in person. The sales rep was super helpful and we decided that based on my gait and an ankle issue (seeing an orthopaedist currently), that a shoe with a lot of stabilization was the right thing for me. I really wanted to baby my ankle and get a quality shoe so I went with the Kayanos even though they were pretty expensive compared to most of the other shoes on the wall. Unfortunately, the store didn't have my size in stock so I had to order them. They arrived within about a week and I took them out for a walk the following morning. They were incredibly comfortably in every way. My toes had plenty of room, my ankle loved them, my knees loved them, everything was great. And, I know this shouldn't matter, but I really appreciated the subdued color scheme. I'm a 35 year-old mother of a toddler and I just feel kind of foolish in a neon sneaker.
However, after about 15 minutes, I started to experience a slight pain on the outside of my feet. It was similar to but much less intense than what I had experienced with the Reeboks, but still, you don't really want to feel any odd pain when you're wearing an expensive, new pair of sneakers. I looked it up online and some folks said it was just the stabilization acting on the overpronation and that I'd get used to it. Other people said, no way, a shoe shouldn't do that. I took them to my orthopaedist and he said he didn't think that it was a great thing and why not try to find a shoe that doesn't do that in the first place. So, although I love them in every other way, I'll be returning them and heading to a running store about 45 minutes away to see if they can find me the right shoe, which will probably be hot pink and glow in the dark (sigh).

Rated 5 out of 5 by running mom love this shoe
This is one of the best shoes I have found to run, especially for long distances. I run 30 to 35 miles a week and regularly run 1/2 marathons. After trying several models I have found this is the best for comfort and support. No blisters no bruises. I have been wearing this shoe for the last 3 years and, I will continue to buy this model.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Amy73 Best running shoes ever!
I absolutely love them. I bought them because after running in my previous shoes my feet hurt so bad and felt like my arch was collapsing. Since wearing these my feet have not hurt! Great shoes!

Rated 3 out of 5 by Nichole Overall just meh
I find many shoes are much better. They do have more cusion compared to big box store shoes they are probably the best. They have nothing on cloud surfers or one ones for serious runners or people with incredibly high arches like myself

Great arch support -- Great platform -- I love Asics - But this pair was like an old friend on it's first day of four miles. No need to break them in.
