I love my new Asics! I had the Kahana 6 before. These feel about the same. My left foot was hurting really bad prior to getting these shoes as my previous pair were worn down and I purchased a pair of North Face Water Proof hiking shoe which were horrible. Though these are not water proof, my foot pain is gone as well is my sciatic nerve pain. I walk about 2-3 miles a day on paved roads. These are perfect for what I need them for. It's summer right now and I find myself reaching for the bootie socks to wear these shoes instead of sandals because my feet feel so much better in these than anything! I have flat feet. I will stick with this line of shoe from now on. As far as fit, I usually wear an 8 1/2 say in Payless shoes, but already knew that I was a size 9 in these as that's what my last pair were.
Great support shoe. Asicsnwere recommended by Podiatrist for Plantar Faciitis and I've loved them ever since. Got the Trail Runner because the mesh on the regular running shoe is too flimsy. These are much more durable. Love that Amazon has a wide range of sizes available.
Well, I did want to love the new Kahanas because the 7's were bad all around, narrower, and the soles had pieces coming off of the shoes in less than 2 months of use. I am comparing all the newer versions to the 5's and specially the 6's, which were just ideal. Wider, very good lateral suport, and roomy to where you did not feel like your feet were being squeezed on the sides. And just to clarify, I am a regular 8.5 (B) size. The Kahana's 8's are even worse because besides the too narrow fit, I also feel that they run somewhat small, as if I had ordered them in a size 8. Don't know why this Asics style has undergone so many changes, as none of them, after the 6's, maintained its integrity as a super good trail run shoe at a decent price point. Bummer. I ended up keeping the 7's I bought last year, which I could not really wear for fear of some piece in the soles coming loose during activity and risk injury, but these brand new ones are going back. And now that Amazon...
