So, I did something I have never, ever done before. I ordered a pair without ever putting them on my feet! Scary!! When they came and I tried them on for the first time it was like the Heavens opened up and a band of angels began to sing, "Hallelujah!" It was easily the most amazing shoe I had ever had on my foot. Ever. The proof was in the run however. I was able to do my 4 miles without any knee or leg fatigue at all!! What a difference a new pair of shoes makes!
I have an average to wide foot and a high instep. My arch is average. I tend to run on my forefoot most of the time and the fit of these shoes feels like a glove around my foot. They are true to size (I wear a 7 1/2 in all shoes, these are no different). The memory foam around the ankle truly makes the shoe mold to my foot while on and makes it feel like it was custom made for my foot. The padding on the tongue runs the length of my instep and makes it feel wonderful in these shoes. The instep is usually where I find trouble in any shoe as mine is so high. But not with these--comfort all the way!!
It scared me to pay over $100 for a pair of shoes that I had never even tried on, but I am SO glad I went with my gut and bought these. Unless ASICS screws them up in future editions (which seems to be somewhat of a reality based on reading reviews of various shoes as they've come out with new versions each year), I will never change from these Kayanos!! I have found the perfect shoe for my needs!
This one just isn't doing it for me.
My running shoe previous to this was the GT2000, in an 11 (I wear a 10 in shoes normally, but generally need am 11 for toe/flex room in runners... have for the last 3 years) so I ordered these in an 11 as well and they fit when i first got them, Now, unless I wear really bulky socks (which I just don't own) or don't run over 2 miles, my arches ache from keeping the shoe from flopping around. Kind of like when you wear flip flops.
Not too happy with wasting the $100 + whatever that I spent on these.... I ended up changing tactics totally and going with a near-zero drop Brooks Pure Connect as my other running shoe to balance out - and have to admit, the Brooks are getting a lot more foot time than these Asics.
-Use it mostly for working out, sometimes to go out to do everyday or sporty kinds of things.
-Very comfortable, the arch position is in the right spot for my feet and fits well around my achilles
-Insert is easy to lift and replace when adding orthotics in
-Bright color, eye catching, easy to spot in a pile of shoes
-Materials are good quality, well made
-Bright pink, easy to show dirt if you're not careful
