but like a lot of running shoes I buy on sale
on April 28, 2017
I purchased these 2 years ago on Amazon, but like a lot of running shoes I buy on sale, I have them on the shelf until I wear a pair out. In this case I had my Kinsei 5's on the shelf for exactly 1 year. Start wearing them a little over a year ago and rotating them with other pairs for long walks and runs. Very comfortable shoe, but the toe box start ripping so much along w/ the heel area inside. Very disappointed in this $200. SRP shoe even though, I got them on sale. Other Asics I have been great performers, but as a former pro athlete, I wouldn't recommend the Kinsei and feel the company owes me a new pair of shoes. I am a person of influence in the sports world and have tried all the top performing shoe brands and these just were not tested properly before going to retail in my humble opinion. Can't recommend the Kinsei 5's and will think twice and really look over the shoe in person before purchasing Asics again.
