In 1949, Mr. Kihachiro Onitsuka began his athletic footwear company (Onitsuka Co., Ltd.) by manufacturing basketball shoes out of his living room in Kobe, Japan. He chose the name ASICS for his company in 1977, based on a famous Latin phrase "Anima Sana In Corpore Sano," which, when translated, expresses the ancient ideal of "A Sound Mind in a Sound Body." Taking the acronym of this phrase, ASICS was founded on the belief that the best way to create a healthy and happy lifestyle is to promote total health and fitness. Today, ASICS offers a full line of performance-driven athletic shoes and technical active sports apparel and accessories dedicated to bringing harmony to the body and soul.

    Hi there!

    First of all before buying a running shoe you should know what is your type of feet. I was searching for the right shoes and when i entered to ASICS Web page they have a well explained description of how you can know the type of feet you have and the kind of shoes you need for your feet. I'm a under pronator and i need shoes with good support and cushion.

    Now the shoes:

    Pro:
    1- They feel soft when your foot hit the ground running. It is like they absorb the impact.
    2- Lightweight.
    3- Nice fit
    4- Nice design

    Cons:
    1- Shoe's lace are little short for me

    Overall i think this is a good pair of running shoes. There is a review that said this shoes has not GEL( enter ASICS for explanation) but my shoes have 3 labels on them saying they have it.

    Sorry for my English, hope this help you!

    Great shoes for my son who has hard to fit large/wide feet. He's worn them almost daily for a year now, has several pairs, different colors. Durable, attractive, good support for sports. highly recommend

    Two year update--these shoes still look decent after two years of weekly wear. AMAZING!!!

    I'm going to echo some of the other reviews on here and say that these wouldn't be my first choice for running, I'd go with a more expensive and cushioned shoe for that. These shoes feel a tiny bit on the stiff side. Insert your own entendre here. However, I got these for about 40 bucks and they are a very good deal for the money. I use them at work, wear them on my bike commute and do a lot of walking with them and they work great for all that. No complaints whatsoever. They do have a bit of cheap look to them, especially the silver bits around the shoe laces. A bit "plasticky" looking if you get my drift. The pair of similarly colored Nike Air Max shoes I'm replacing were definitely cooler looking but they also cost twice as much. If you're buying 40 dollar shoes you're probably looking for value and not high style and these definitely deliver in that department.

    My shoe needs are a little more generic then running but I find runners and cross trainers are my most common shoe types. Primarily, I'm looking for comfort and support. Longevity is desired and expectations are influenced by the price.

    Not having had these before, there was some risk, however I must simply say that I'm SO glad I bought them. The comfort and support in this early stage is spot on, and the reduced weight as a runner is very evident.

    At the price I paid, I wouldn't expect the longest life, but judging by the quality and finish I feel confident I won't be disappointed.

    I have to put a plug in for Amazon too, as the shoes were shipped very promptly and arrived very quickly.

    Buying experiences such as this reinforce my willingness to do online purchasing from Amazon.

    These feel strong and supportive from the minute you put them on, making my old pair of New Balance feel like socks in comparison. I spent 8 hours yesterday walking around Six Flags the other days in these with almost no discomfort, despite my old knee injury (most shoes I can't walk in for very long).
    I'm glad the size 12.5 were on sale so I didn't get the 12's. They fit nice and snug but I think the 12 would have been too narrow. I wear standard with in every other shoe brand, usually 12-12.5.

    It is extremely difficult for me to find shoes that fit well and are comfortable, having a size 15 foot can be a bummer, God have mercy on those with even larger feet. As a nursing student and a full time nursing assistant on top of that i have a lot and i mean a lot of time spent on my feet running back and forth, standing, and doing things the human body wasn't meant to do. These shoes have proven themselves over and over again to be a great shoes of the utmost quality. They fit wonderfully, and still do almost a year later.

    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.

    It is advertised as a running shoe but it is really an everyday shoe.Very nice shoe,good design,shoe is relatively comfortable but if you want a real running shoe you will have to spend a little more and serious runners will not bother with this type of shoe.Pretty out of the box.So far so good.

    March 27,2014....... Still have the shoes,very well made,worth every penny. I wear them everyday,No holes or excessive wear.
