  • Breathable upper
  • Stylish looks

The ASICS Gel-Cumulus 18 women's running shoe is extremely comfortable to wear. I wear my gel-cumulus 18's all the time. I love going for walks. So I wear my gel-cumulus 18's and walk around. The mesh upper keeps my feet cool while the sock-like upper gives a soft, comfortable fit.

The gel heel also makes the night a lot more comfortable. You can really feel the cushion between your heel and the back of your foot when taking long strides. The impact guidance system helps the Gel-Cumulus 18 keep your feet light and flexible at all times, giving the best posture possible.

The upper is more breathable than the sole on some of my other running shoes. I do a lot of running on trails instead of on a gym track. I really like that. I have found that the gel makes my feet feel really good. It does take about one to two weeks to get used to the cushion, but I really like that feature.

I don't know if this is really a good running shoe or a good walking shoe, I guess its both and that's what I like about it. It is advertised to be a neutral running shoe, but I have found that it really feels like a stability running shoe.
