5.0 out of 5 stars Training for my first half marathon!, January 24, 2013

This review is from: ASICS Women's GEL-Kinsei 4 Running Shoe (Apparel)
My 21 year old asked me to be her partner in the upcoming Disney Princess Half Marathon ... I have always been physically active, but knew that I had to step up my routine in order to be able to compete. A long time ASICS fan, I treated myself to the Gel-Kinsei after reading the reviews. From the very first time I laced them, I was able to run for miles - no rubbing, or irritation - no need to "break them in". Definitely worth the money, and the fact that they are different colors sparks conversation wherever I go. Please note that if you are looking for the new type of lightweight running shoe - these are definitely not for you.

Update: 12/28/14

I LOVED my Kinsei 4's, but could not wear the 5's. I switched to the Mizuno Wave Prophecy 2's and was very happy, until once again, the shoe manufacturer changed the design for the next model. I just discovered the ON Running Cloudsurfer in a specialty store. Despite the fact that it is a lightweight shoe, it felt great and I was able to run eight miles right out of the box. The shoes felt like a lighter version of the Kinsei 4's, and I am thrilled to run "on a cloud" again. Even better- there was no achiness in my legs after the run. Hopefully, ON will not change the model and I can finally stick with one shoe!
