Good Stability, Good Substitue for Kayano,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: ASICS Men's GEL-Evolution 6 Running Shoe (Apparel)
Running shoes are admittedly a matter of personal preference. The main criteria for me are acceptable comfort with stability, wear then price.
There are a lot of choices at about $140. The ASICS GEL-Evolution 6 as far as I can tell is as good as the Kayano for $30 to $40 less. The alternative, for about $10 more is one model out of date Kayano, if you can find the right size. I go through about 5 pairs of shoes a year. This is my 3rd pair of Evolution 6. I've had 6 pairs of Kayano's. Also run in Nike's, New Balance from time to time, but the ASICS over all seem to hold up longer, particularly on the outside of the heal and the upper is never a problem. FWIW I also use sorbothane material sole inserts removing the originals, but those are good for several years.
