I bought these shoes because I love the color and they were on sale. After I put them on I hate taking them off. I have had feet problems my whole life and these shoes have seemed to improve my feet!
About This Item
Country of Origin: Multi Country
Love the support and cushioning
I am not a runner, but am extremely active and on my feet all day. I log 15,000+ steps a day. I love these shoes, maybe even more than my Gel Nimbus 18's? It's a tough call. I used to suffer from plantar fasciitis, but since switching to the gel Asics, it has gone away completely.
Perfect Crosstraining Shoe Great Price
I recently stepped up the hunt for new multipurpose training shoes for my wide/flat feet. The hunt has been even more challenging lately because I prefer less bright colors. This shoe is lightweight enough for east coast summer workouts, but substantial enough to support my foot without arch (where my arch should be) discomfort. The heel is low enough to use for leg training and to keep me off the balls of my feet during cardio (I'm not a runner). Bonus- this shoe is much cuter for wearing around town than the functional but not-so-cute dad sneakers I normally wear. Asics, please keep this line around and offer more non-pink and purple options for women.
I love these shoes!
The Gel Quantum 360 shoe is wonderful! They are amazingly comfortable, and shock absorption is the best I have experienced. Asics just really knows how to make great athletic shoes for really active people. I have had the Nimbus in the past and it is a great shoe also, but couldn't help but want to have EVEN more gel~ thus the 360 expands even further down the line of the shoe. I am enjoying them very much!! On a medical note~ I developed plantar fasciitis a couple years ago, and I found I needed a shoe with tons of shock absorption to facilitate healing without having to stop activity. It has worked! I thank the Lord for the healing, but my Asics shoes have really been used to help in the process~
These are THE best shoes.
I've had 4 pair of these shoes and although I've tried another brand in between, I just run so much better in the original Quantum 360. The cushioning is the best, they wear well, and they're very comfortable with no hot spots. I've stocked up with 4 more original Quantum 360 because I can't do without them and know how "you people" like to change shoes around - not always for the better .
Comfortable, flexible support
I thoroughly enjoy running in the Quantum 360. I switched to the Quantum about 6 months ago, just to try something different from the Nimbus, which I've been running in for years. I was quite pleased to find the Quantum is just as good a shoe as the Nimbus. It is very comfortable and flexible, yet fully supportive. The roomy toe area is ideal for me because it allows my toes to move and flex without contacting the front or sides of the shoe. In contrast, the fitted heel area keeps my foot firmly positioned in the shoe without sliding. No foot, ankle, or knee soreness for me. And what fabulous color selections! I wore the Quantum in a recent marathon and had no issues whatsoever, still cushioning and supporting after 26.2 miles! I will definitely buy these again. It's nice to know that I have a choice of two high quality Asics -- Quantum and Nimbus.
Like walking on a cushy cloud!
I was an athlete that ended up with arthritic knees early in life (34) so I am always on the search for a comfortable shoe to give my knees the support they need for my daily 7 mile walks (formerly a daily 12 mile runner) This shoe is sooo compfy! Like walking on a cloud while still maintaining great support!
Wanted to love
I ordered these shoes online after they caught my eye in the store. I thought about it for a long time since they are more expensive than the other asics models that I usually buy and love and finally went for it. They arrive and I was immediately concerned about the thin material on the top. You could see my toe through and other people had mentioned that theirs ripped after a short time. But I loved the color and style so much, I continued to give them a shot. I put them on and walked around the house and experienced some heel slipping, which I don't have with the gel nimbus. The further I walked, I noticed that the bottom cushion on my left shoe only felt like it was bunching up with each step. Almost the feeling if you were wearing a sock that was too big and kept stepping on the wrinkles. I noted that it was only in one foot and even tried various socks and compared to my old shoes and still felt the slipping cushion. Unfortunately, this is something I felt with every step and cannot be ignored. They did not seem like they were a high enough quality to warrant the price tag. I also noticed that they were a bit heavier and clunkier feeling than the nimbus, especially in the heel area. Overall, I do not recommend these and will return to my old style of asics.
