Shoe fits, and wears like it should. Heel is much more pliable than the other 6 pair of Asic's that I now have. One pair is 8 years old. Football game day shoes for one year and then casual wear. My first pair lasted over 10 years. Wore them alternate days for one full season.
The 'new' shoes, I don't care for all the splashy colors and girly designs. I want a basic shoe for coaches. Red, obsidian and black. My heels look like someone splattered paint all over the heel and sole.
Shoe wears and feel good. Would like some basic color combinations. We've used a combo of black, white - black, white and red or combo of that ilk.
