      Terrible Value, Mesh rips within 50 miles of use

      By Anonymous

      from Undisclosed

      Comments about ASICS Men's GEL-Kinsei 5 Running Shoes:

      I have bought several of the older versions of Kinsei (including 2 pairs of Kinsei 4) and loved the shoe. I was excited when this shoe came out. I loved the first runs and was convinced that Asics had stepped it up again. Unfortunately, after about 30-40 miles the mesh on top of the toes began to rip. The design is obviously flawed (read all the other reviews). Unfortunately, when I contacted Asics they pointed me to a warranty process that includes me going 2-3 weeks without shoes. This isn't acceptable considering the fact that I'm training for a half marathon and don't really have another $200 to spend on shoes in the meantime. Get with the 21st century, Asics. If you're going to consider yourself a premium product then follow the lead of premium retailers like Nordstrom that don't make it a hassle when you're not satisfied with the product. As of now I won't be buying another pair, time to investigate other shoe options.

      Great comfort and fit, but don't expect more that 3 months of use. It's a great disappointment, these was my favorite shoes, until the 3 month that they last.

      A maximalist shoe shouldn't try to be minimalist

      By Anonymous

      from Undisclosed

      Comments about ASICS Men's GEL-Kinsei 5 Running Shoes:

      The first few models of this shoe were full of gel and provided great stability and shock absorbing function. The last two versions have tried to be all things to all people and by going towards minimalism and a lower platform the shoe has gone to junk. PLEASE go back two models and pick-up where you lost the Kinsei mission, value, and durability.

      Not worth the $$ for how cheap they're constructed

      By Anonymous

      from Undisclosed

      Comments about ASICS Men's GEL-Kinsei 5 Running Shoes:

      For the past 3 years I have justified paying the money for this particular style of Asics by their durability and comfort for much longer than any other shoe I have worn. After the first month of fairly light use they began to tear near the toe region. Shortly after the other shoe began to tear in the same spot (along with tears and cracks throughout the uppers). My wife's response was "Aren't these shoe supposed to be a superior shoe?" To which I could not answer honestly. Disappointed in a product I thought to be much better quality. Hope it is fixed by the next release.

      I've owned every pair of Gel Kinsei since release

      By Anonymous

      from Undisclosed

      Comments about ASICS Men's GEL-Kinsei 5 Running Shoes:

      The original Gel Kinsei were loved by many but widely faulted for it's heavy weight. Gradually over the years ASICS stripped away at the design until whats left is a shoe that is light and comfortable, but falls apart with even light use. I wore this shoe daily for nothing more than walking and sitting. I played Tennis once and the entire front mesh ripped off the sole almost entirely. I have a habit of holding onto the previous generation of Gel Kinsei so I just put Generation IV's back on that I wore EVERY day in Afghanistan for over a year, and they're still solid and have no signs of material breakdown. I'd should buy another pair of Gen VI's since they've stood the test of time, endurance, and comfort. This latest iteration of the Gel Kinsei has left me skeptical of the line's future.

      Expected more

      By Anonymous

      from Undisclosed

      Comments about ASICS Men's GEL-Kinsei 5 Running Shoes:

      Kinsei 5 was an overall disaster compared to kinsei 4. Not bad as a shoe, the design seamed cheap and after a while it felt A bit boring wearing them. The worst of all was its durability, after 3 months of intense workout doing crossfit me & my wife's brand new pairs were full of cracks and rips. Disappointing for a shoe that costed 200€ each. Opened up my closet and searched for my forgotten pair of kinsei 4 that were still "running".

      Least durable Asics ever!!!

      By AngryStillLoyalConsumer

      from Undisclosed

      Comments about ASICS Men's GEL-Kinsei 5 Running Shoes:

      Had several other Asics before, including a Kinsei 4, that lasted 3 years. Kinsei 5 is an insult to Asics customers. Upper mesh is completely ripped after less than 3 months of soft walking 3x a week. A real shame! Asics should take this version off market and refund all customers who bought it.
