Not as good as the Assert 6...
August 7, 2018
100% agree w/reviewer Bill - LOVED the Assert 6's - one of, if not the most comfortable running shoes I've ever worn...
So, when it was time to re-order, I was forced to buy the Assert 7 since the 6 was not available in my size. I ordered the exact same size, but the Assert 7 was extremely tight through the toe box.
I also agree that the material used in the Assert 7 (vs. Assert 6) seems more shiny and somewhat more cheaply made.
I hate it when companies try to "improve" products that are already great, and end up taking a step backwards - if it ain't broke, don't fix it!
