Celebrating our brand's heritage with this special edition GEL-CUMULUS® 21 Retro Tokyo running shoe from ASICS. Honoring the global heritage of Japan's history, the shoe features a retro color scheme and technical features designed to cushion and support your feet over long distances. The GEL-CUMULUS® 21 Retro Tokyo blends two different midsole foams - one for lightweight softness and another that adds a more responsive step. It also has rear and forefoot GEL® technology for premium level shock absorption. Our GUIDANCE LINE™ technology helps create a more efficient stride, while the internal heel counter holds your foot in position for added support. The shoe helps align your stride with smoother propulsion while a contoured EVA sockliner better matches the shape of your feet for added comfort. The durable outsole reduces wear at key impact areas and the engineered jacquard mesh upper helps keep the top of the foot cool. Reflective details on the outside of the shoe also promote better visibility in low-light settings.

So far, so goodThis is a very stable, supportive running shoe. I like the wider toe box and mesh topside that give my toes room and don't squeeze the ball of my foot.

RUNS SMALL/SHORTI like the mesh upper-- very comfy. Not sure yet how I feel about the firmness of the sole though. Most importantly, I ordered a 7 wide as I have done for the Cumulus 20, Kayano 25, and every other ASICS shoe but this one runs short. I am going to exchange for a 7.5, which is strange because I have never been a 7.5 in any shoe before.
