AE This is my go-to shoe. I've worn my versions and love them all. I run 60-80 miles a week. My only complaint is they wear quickly.

Highly Disappointed Dear Asics...It would seem you have succumbed to the nemesis of textbook publishers, releasing a new edition with very little or rotten changes and charging customers more for the "latest and greatest".



I have been a HUGE fan of Asics running shoes for many years and many miles. However, this latest "release" is something worse than horrible. It started with a tiny toe box (in the medium width) that produced numb toes that lasted thru the 6mile run, despite numerous and creative lacing trials. Then it traveled to a knee twinge and then settled in the low back. I am quite certain my chiropractor, who managed to get my back into running shape again just 3 mos ago after nearly a year's hiatus, will not be pleased with you either. Because my heels were nowhere near secure in the heel cup, my trail run was tenuous at best and I nearly face-planted on more than one occasion.



I have run in the Cumulus 12 and other generations for a long long time--the last 2 pairs I bought to rotate were the 12's. Why, oh why, did you mess with perfection?? I would rather have laced up my 12's (and they've been thru the WASHING MACHING for cripessake) than suffer this--there is more cushion in those old gems than this brand new pair. Even my orthotics didn't really fit in the shoe. Come again? Nope...nada, not happenin'.



So, dear Asics, PLEASE go back to your collective engineering drawing board and dust off the prints from the 12's--give us our good shoe back!!!



Sincerely,

A long time nearly gone customer

Lokelani I had the Cumulus 12, which had a lot more cushioning. I bought the Cumulus 14 after trying on other shoes, including the Pegasus, Saucony, and Brooks. I have bunions, so I look for cushioning, room in the toe box, as well as good arch support. I returned to Cumulus because it had the right support and cushioning, without the extra weight. My Cumulus 12 is noticeably heavier and bulkier, and after wearing them out I was starting to get shin splints. So I happily upgraded to the Cumulus 14 to run my first 10k without worrying about pain. I think Asics made some good improvements to make this shoe more lightweight without losing the comfort or changing the fit. Thanks!

midwest gal I have been wearing the Cumulus line for many years and I've never had any issues with them. This model is not up to snuff. I've had mine for 6 months (haven't put a ton of miles on them), and the cushioning is terrible. I remember them feeling weird in the arch and heel when I first started running in them. I just wrote it off as 'not broken in yet.' Well, that weird feeling never went away. The heel/arch of my foot just aches after I run in these shoes. I went back to wearing my old Cumulus 13's and I felt they still had way better cushioining (even after being 2 years old) than the 14's. I'm going to try and find some new 13's online and wear those.

Nurse in Tri-training I've worn Asics Narrow width shoes for 10+ years. I'm loyal to Asics however their fit does not work for me in all their narrow shoes like they used to. May be because I'm getting older (lol), but Asics fit for narrow foot is lacking consistency. I run 30+ miles a week and tried the Asics Cumulus 14 for 2 months. After each run, I experienced a painful friction blister at lateral base aspect of great toes. I would alternate other Asic running shoes without this problem, so I decided to return and search again for my next great running shoe.

B I have run in the Cumulus for MANY years with NO problems whatsoever. Unfortunately, this shoe is NOTHING like the previous models. I'm so disappointed in the changes, and wish that Asics would just leave a good thing as it is. I cannot run in this shoe, and might have to start trying out other brands. The toe box is way too narrow now, and the "cushioning" is absolutely horrible and ridiculous in this shoe. I'm going to look online and at other stores for the old models that are tried and true. Asics, PLEASE go back to your old model, and stop with the "upgrades" that totally change the shoe, and the reason we loved it!! :(

ak13 I have been a Cumulus lover/supporter for many, many years and I have to say that the 14s are a huge disappointment. Typically I can run at least 10 miles on a pair right out of the box and it is perfection...as the Cumulus used to boast, "clouds for your feet!" Indeed! Well not this guy. I could barely eek out three miles without pain in the balls of my feet. I returned them right away and proceeded to buy up previous years models from every place I could find. Not sure what I will do without my beloved Cumulus. Please change them back. Change is not always progress.

krisom I whole heartedly agree with all the reviews below. I've been an avid Asics Cumulus product user for many years, until now. The toe box is cramped and by mile 3 my toes on both feet are numb; by mile 5 toes and the balls of my feet are numb as well. I've tried different lacing techniques, which either ended with heel blisters, toe blisters or numb feet again. This is the first time I've had to return a pair of running shoes. Very disappointed in the Cumulus designers for ruining a good product.

Maureen the runner I have run in the Asics Cumulus for many years. I ordered this model and immediately when I put it on, it felt completely different than the other models. I returned the shoe and had to go online and find the older model to buy. My toes feel restricted in this shoe and the cushioning is not what it used to be. Hightly disappointed. Please bring back the older style!!!!
