We've been getting asked this a lot since the new shoes dropped from Asics in December and January of 2016/17. The new Nimbus 19 and Kayano 24 Cumulus 19 2000 version 5 and DS Trainer 22. In 2016 there was some complaints about people poking their toes through the top of some of the previous models so Asics addressed the issue by making the upper stronger and redesigning the toe box as a result though the shoe fits smaller.
We've been doing a bit of research in the shop's at the moment and the trend seems to be something like this 50% of the customers that were in a previous version of the shoe have moved a half a size up, 30% of the customers have gone a full size up and only about 20% have stayed with the same size.
So the important thing is when you are in store make sure you at least try on the half size bigger just to see how it feels on your foot. If you're in one of our stores the guys will already now this and bring you out different options to try as well.
