      Switched to the Excel from Nike Free's after the Free's latest (and not so greatest) changes to the sole & tongue. Really happy with the lightness & cushioning. I ran about 50 miles in my first pair, then ordered a second because I like them so much. My max run in them has been 6 miles & they are super comfy. I also use them in the gym for tabata workouts & they're great.

      Comments about Womens ASICS GEL-Excel33 3 Running Shoe:

      I love these shoes! I ran a half marathon in them today actually (pavement) and these felt wonderful! I came from a slightly more minimalist shoe, and this feels like a huge step up in cushioning without all that extra shoe. I used the runner's knot with these and have had no issues with sliding (even without the knot these are wonderful on your feet), and the toe box fit my tootsies nicely. These are super lightweight and won't feel like bricks during those last couple miles. I definitely sweat during any type of exercise, but didn't have sweaty feet issues in these due to good breathability. I wish they had more crazy colors (I'm a big fan of obnoxiously bright shoes), but I have the purplish grey ones and totally dig them :)

      Comments about Womens ASICS GEL-Excel33 3 Running Shoe:

      I purchased 2 pairs of this shoe to replace my other Gel-Excel 33s (previous model). I was really looking forward to getting this shoe, after trying quite a few brands before finding my last excels; however, the excitement didn't last. The fit has changed a lot from the former model. This shoe was very tight on the top of my foot, especially just below my big toe. In fact, it left a significant indentation/red mark on my foot no matter how I tried to lace them. I thought this tightness might be an anomaly to one pair, but both pairs presented the same fit. I do wear orthotics, but this was not an issue with my former excel 33s. I sent both back, and now I'm back to trying to find a good running shoe for me. Urgh!

        I tend to have sensitivity in my achilles and like the low shoe back and lack of pressure around my tendon. I had tried the Gel-Lyte 33 and liked them but they were not quite supportive enough. These are one notch up in cushioning and work well. Size chart said buy a half size up. I did and they are perfect. I can get my Superfeet insoles in them without making them too tight. Only about 30 miles on them so far but no problems, I would buy again.

          Comments about Womens ASICS GEL-Excel33 3 Running Shoe:

          I'm a runner. So I put these shoes through the wringer. I've run recently in rain, in mud, on trails full of rocks, gravel, roots, leaves, and packed dirt. These are the BEST running shoes I've ever had. The fit is superb - at first I thought it was too tight across the middle but once I'm running I don't notice it and whatever it is they've put in this shoe it holds my foot. I feel much more stable in this shoe and have had no issues with my achilles. I've been running in more minimalist type shoes (more accurately low drop shoes) and the last 3 months I've consistently had sore achilles no matter how much I train. This shoe has a 10mm drop and apparently that is the sweet spot for me. My knees do not hurt, my calves are good. I feel like I have more speed. They are cushy but not squishy or marshmallow'y. I'm not fond of "sinking" into a shoe (e.g. Asics Nimbus) as I feel it causes me to have less energy where the shoes are almost a drain on my ability to speed.

          There is plenty of cushion. These are way more cushioned than they appear. If you want complete ground feel ala Merrell barefoot these are not your shoes. If you need some cushion for the roads these are great without having a huge stack height and with still keeping your foot close to the ground. The mesh is breathable and comfortable. There is NOT ONE SEAM to rub or irritate in the toe box. The toe box is wide enough to satisfy even my wider feet. The heel is interesting. It's got a different type of counter - so far it's working but I do have to tighten the laces. It's probably the only area I'd tell Asics to try and improve. The shoe fits like a glove, feels like running a comfy slipper that gives you energy, and it gives me more support than I've ever had in a shoe - it's not a stability trainer but I can immediately tell the difference on gravel or rocky terrain because my ankle doesn't even think of twisting in these shoes. I wouldn't necessarily use them for trails all the time - but I like them so much I just can't "not" wear them.

          The only bad thing is I am not keen on the color. I got the blue/orange. It's kind of yuck to me. I like bright colors so I can be seen. I run distances at all hours from 3 miles to 14 miles and increasing. I'm training for a marathon..these are my shoes. I will buy multiple pairs because I know Asics will change them. I most strongly can say these are it.for.me. Really great!

              I did the unthinkable and used these shoes for the first time on the day of my first 1/2 marathon race...and I am glad to report that these shoes made me and my feet happy for the entire distance. I trained for the 1/2 marathon wearing Asics trail shoes (FujiRacers)which I love, but I needed more forefoot cushion for distances above 9 miles. The Excel 33 was perfect. The only drawback to this shoe is that it seems like it may not go the distance for long-time wearability...I only wear these shoes for my racing events.

                I was pleasantly surprised by this shoe. I had tried to stay clear from Asics for several years now. Since Nike has changed all the shoes the I used to like I was looking for a light shoe that would be able to transition from short runs to long runs and this shoes is a winner. I tried the Asics Lytee but had no cushion to land... this one added enough. I love the soft material, since I had a really bad bunion anything too restrictive makes me suffer the consequences, but this shoes felt comfortable from beginning to end of my runs. The only issue I have is durability, but I have not been able to find a shoe that fits that criteria since I am hard on all shoes! I say get this shoe a try, I think you will LOVE it!!!
                * I tried the 2 version of this shoe and sent back since it was too stiff, but this version is AmaZiNg!
