This review is from: ASICS Men's GEL-Kanbarra 6 Running Shoe (Apparel)I've had the Kanbarra 6's for about a year and I've been pretty satisfied. I recently walked 16 miles in one day (I was on vacation in NYC) and although my legs were tired, my feet were feeling okay. I've walked similar lengths in other shoes and had horrible, blistery pain.
They've also worn well. I use them pretty heavily, playing racquetball and tennis and basketball, but the soles are still hanging in there pretty well.
And they are serviceably stylish compared to other athletic shoes. They can be worn with a nice pair of jeans without looking terribly awkward.
My one complaint would be that they fit a bit wide on my feet compared to other shoes, especially in the front of the foot. This is not a problem for walking but is definitely noticeable when I play a sport like racquetball where quick changes of direction are necessary. There have been a couple of times when my feet have almost rolled inside the shoe, causing moderate pain and risking a pretty serious ankle injury.
Overall, I'd recommend them, and I will likely be getting myself Kanbarras again.
