This shoe fits great and is one of the most comfortable shoes I have ever worn.
Nickflyz | Fit: As expected
Buy lots of running shoes and find this to be one of the best pair that I gave ever word.
Steve | Fit: As expected
They fit perfect, phenomenally stable (even when lunging side to side), and the soles last forever.

    So I get it, spending this much on shoes is slightly retarded! However, I am a big fat guy and hate running so I wanted to try and mitigate the suck. I figured why the hell not buy some obnoxious shoes to help. First off it is not apparent from the pics but the L and R shoe are different colors which is pretty awesome. Second, you can feel the quality in the shoe as you pick it up. I can't quite explain why except that you will find suede near your ankle piece. Lastly they are comfortable and get lots of attn. I tried the minimalist shoes and would rather have a hot poker shoved... Well lets just say I like these better. So don't hesitate your kids don't really need to go to college. Buy these shoes!

    If you want the best, it'll cost you... These Asics are the flagship product of the company. I was running marathons with the Kinetic 2 and 3s, until I finally decided to invest in the best. Keep in mind that I tried Nike, Adidas, Newton and Saucony. None came close to my trusty Asics... Running is one of the most inexpensive sports out there, so don't go cheap on your boots.

    I read all of the reviews and I have tried hundreds of shoes over the 20 years that I have been running and this shoe is the best shoe I have ever run with. I'm a heavy runner ex football player 6'2 220 lbs and I run about 18-24 miles per week at about a 9.50 pace..I over pronate slightly and this shoe gives me tremendous support. In addition to the support the cushion under my feet is also incredible. I was hesitant because of the price but i read a review that stated how precious your feet are and decided to give them a try. I assure you if you are my size and are a moderate runner you will enjoy this show...I plan to buy several pairs as this is the only shoe I run in now. I have tried Nike, Saucony, Brooks and several other brands based on expert recommendations and this is the shoe for me. It truly is made like no other and lives up to all of the reviews on this website. I also love the styl as you do not see many of these shoes on the road. I love this shoe...it is the real deal. I'm also a power buyer on Amazon and the shipping and customer service was outstanding as it always is.

    Wanted to update my review....I still love these shoes !...,I have been very are on them running about 20 miles a week...threw them in the washer to clean them up and they still looks great and have held their form...this is an awesome shoe very comfortable...good cushion and awesome support...spend the money on your feet guys if you are running 3 plus miles several times a week...these shoes are worth every dime and I plan to buy another pair and won't run in anything else !

    I don't care what your brand loyalty is. I've worn Nike for 20 years, and goodbye to that. These are the best shoes I have ever put on, and it isn't even close. You owe it to your feet, which have carried you this far, to at least try these on. 2 pair, please.

    Color Name: Mosaic/White/MosaicSize Name: 12 D(M) US
    I am not a particularly good runner, but I am a dedicated runner and have tried numerous shoes over the years. My recent favorites have been ASICS Gel-Noosas (I prefer the Noosa 6's to the more recent iterations,) but now that I'm running longer distances, I wanted a somewhat more padded shoe that still has that excellent ASICS support that I love my Noosas for. With that in mind I spent the money and moved up to the Gel-Kinsei 4 (mine are in the jaw-dropping mosaic/white/mosaic color scheme.) I have never loved a pair of running shoes so much right out of the box. I kept the factory insoles, and have found them to be extraordinarily supportive and comfortable, yet reasonably light. I weigh a bit over 200 lbs., and am 6'2" so I tend to be hard on shoes (I run about 25 miles a week.) After running with the Kinseis I have noticed that my body feels better (especially my knees) than after running in most other shoes.

    I still run in my Noosas as well, but when I'm going to run 5K or more I now default to the Kinseis. While there are many great shoes on the market, if you're running relatively long distances and want to do your feet a favor, buy a pair of Gel-Kinsei 4's. Your feet will thank you.

    I recently ran my 3rd marathon and wore my new Asics Gel Kinsei 4 during this marathon. LOVE the shoe. I have always work the Brooks Glycerine as they fit my foot, were very comfortable and most importantly had a wide toe box. I get all of that, and even MORE cushioning with the Gel Kinsei 4! I've tried other running shoes in the past (Mizuno Wave Creation, Mizuno Prophecy) and had always come back to the Brooks Glycerines. Not this time. My new go-to running shoe is the Asics Gel Kinsei! My only feedback to Asics would be to make the laces longer! Otherwise, it is a very, very comfortable running shoe!

    Phenomenal shoe! Best shoes I have ever purchased. I run three times a week from four to six miles and my back and knees feel little if no pain which is new since my purchase. I also train on a treadmill and stair stepper three twice a week with a 50 pound training vest on. My low back and knees were sore after each weighted session. Not anymore, I'm stoked! Highly recommend these shoes!
