Asics GEL-Kinsei 5 Reviews:


I'm an average runner and I currently run in Asics, Solomon and New Balance. These are my new trainers for the road and they're replacing Asics Kayano 18s. This is the new hotness from Asics with all their new tech and I've already got over 20 miles on them. They're not a soft ride, I would say they're medium softness, and the fit is true to size. The upper is this mesh and breathable and comfy, looks pretty cool and modern. I found I have to be sure to wear thin socks with these so I'm not sure I'll rock these through the winter running season but they've been really great so far on runs up to about 10 miles. I'm really happy with these for running roads/paths.

These are expensive so it made me pause before buying for quite some time. However, this is a comfortable and well-made shoe and I have no regrets. Also worth noting I am a size 14 and often times M shoes are tight. Not these.

My son says these are the best asics pair he's ever had. They are light and comfortable and he says they aren't hot. I know they are expensive but we splurged and they have been worth it.

These shoes are awesome! I received them as a Christmas gift; and had to do a return because the initial pair were not the right color. Zappos had outstanding customer service! Great job!
