    Comments about Womens ASICS GEL-Cumulus 16 Running Shoe:

    Been wearing the Asic Cumulus for years. These shoes have great cushion and arch support. I run 20-30 miles a week on pavement and have had no issues with these (with the exception of the Cumulus 14's). I like the Cumulus better than the Brooks Ghost because I feel the Cumulus has more cushioning and is more flexible. Remember to order a 1/2 size up!

    Comments about Womens ASICS GEL-Cumulus 16 Running Shoe:

    I do 24 miles weekly. I run on the treadmill and on the road. It is a pretty shoes but the cushioning is poor. Not enough! I did my half marathon Friday and could not wait to finish. The shoes ran well on the road but without comfort. It is firm and the sole is too flat. My achilles tendon are tight as a result of using these shoes. THE SHOES IS NOT FLEXIBLE.

      Comments about Womens ASICS GEL-Cumulus 16 Running Shoe:

      I've been running in the Cumulus's for years, never ever a problem. Always could wear right out of the box. This was my first pair of 16's, avid to try the newest release. They felt small when I first got them. I thought it was because of all of the cushioning and would just flatten out after my first run. They were just okay. After a 10-mile race, my big toe turned purple and my foot was cramped the entire time. Needless to say, these were going back. Customer Service was very helpful. I'll be sticking to the 15's until I can go to a store and try on the 16's.

      Great cushioning but the wide version seems not wide enough. Would have liked more variety in colors. The gel is great. Haven't tested durability yet.

        I use this shoes for running on the treadmill. Its pretty but its not flexible at all. Too stiff. I need a shoes with proper cushioning. When compared to the Brook 5 and Saucony ride 6,these are far better to run in for neutral feet runners.

          Comments about Womens ASICS GEL-Cumulus 16 Running Shoe:

          I run about 15-20 miles a week. I have bought the Cumulus ASICS model since the 11. It is usually consistent but some numbers (like the 14) felt stiffer and not as "cloud like". They went back to what I love with the 15 and have done a great job with this 16 as well. There are no surprises in the fit and feel if you've used the Cumulus before. If you haven't, it has the most cushion I have found in a running shoe, which I really like.

            I like to zumba and jog. Very comfortable for both activities! I have pretty collapsed feet so I always wear custom foot orthotics in my athletic shoes--- so I'm not sure how supportive the shoe is alone as I immediately transferred inserts into them.
