I don't know what is going on with Asics. I first bought the Gel Nimbus 15 shoe, which I loved. When the 15 was being discontinued, I followed their suggestion and hurried & ordered another pair before they sold out. I received the exact same shoe, size 7D, and stored them in the closet. It wasn't until a year later, when I pulled them out, that I realized they were way too small. Yes, the label said the exact same size & the soles matched up, but the tops were made so tight, I couldn't get my foot in them. I waited until now to try the Nimbus Gel 19. I ordered my size 7 D, and the 7.5 D, just in case. The 7.5 are close to what I need in length but the shoe is so narrow, I can't wear them. I am extremely disappointed they don't make a wider shoe. If you have a wide foot, forget about these. Don't even bother.
