      I'm coming up on a replacement soon

      By Anonymous

      from Undisclosed

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

      I love these shoes. I will replace my gear with this same style again. After running in this shoe for months, I can say that this shoe is perfect for people running on the outside of their feet, heavier runners, and runners that run on sidewalks. I have a little wider foot so it took me like 3 runs to get the toes to feel comfortable, but that's what I have to do with like 90% of my running shoes anyways. This shoe is incredibly well designed. I love how it supports and feels on the strike of hard pavement. It just works. Quick note: the mash on top does not do well with any other activity but that of running. Of course, we should only use running shoes for running. Therefore, if you use these shoes for running, the mash on top will hold up until the time that you should be replacing that ran-out shoe anyway ;0) Get it! You'll love it!

      Love This Shoe!

      By Anonymous

      from Undisclosed

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

      I bought the Gel-Kensei 5 and love them. They have tons of cushion, are wide in the toe box and are not too heavy, given the cushion. Since they provide the right overall support for me, I rarely have back and knee issues when I run in these shoes. I can't say the same for other shoes. Something about the biomechanics of those other shoes mixed with my body wreaks havoc on my joints. I am surprised at all the comments about the Kinsei falling apart after 6-13 weeks. I bought mine in 2013 and still use them, though I now need another pair. To be fair, I did not run much in 2014, but have put about 400 miles on them since February 2015, in addition to the couple hundred miles from 2013 and 2014, and they still feel comfy and are intact. I am getting a new pair because I supinate (under pronate) and have worn the outside of the heel down enough that I can now feel the "tilt." I have been looking for the Kinsei 6, but alas they are not out yet. I tried both the Nimbus and Cumulus in previous years and neither shoe worked well for me. I had to replace each within a few months because they were worn down too much on the outside heel. I know I am in the minority as a supinator, rather than a pronator, and maybe that is the issue. The Kinsei is a great shoe for those that under pronate, maybe not so much for the overpronator.

      These shoes lack durability

      By Anonymous

      from Undisclosed

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

      I love the comfort of these shoes but my toes began ripping through the seams immediately. The colors are fantastic. The comfort is terrific. But, I would never recommend these shoes to anyone or buy another pair. Generally love Asics but not these.

      Comfort and Performance...lacks durability!

      By Anonymous

      from Undisclosed

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

      I bought two pair of the Kinsei 5 because I loved my Kinsei 4's so much. While these shoes are very comfortable and they perform well, the mesh fabric began splitting between the rows of detail on the toes of both shoes. VERY disappointing for the money I paid! I love everything about these shoes but the mesh outside! Bring back the durable fabric of the 4's! These shoes look terrible and I've only been using them for 2 months!

      Didn't last 6 weeks

      By Anonymous

      from Undisclosed

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

      I've been running for 7 years and am used to buying new shows every 4-6 months but the new kinsei barely last six weeks before seams started ripping all over the place. I run more than average (45-50 miles a week) but this is ridiculous. It might be time to try a new brand.

      Not very well made!

      By Anonymous

      from Undisclosed

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

      I bought these shoes about 6 months ago. I only wear these at the gym about 4 times a week and the seam on the toe had already ripped. These is very disappointing considering the price. They ate very comfortable, one of the best shoes I have ever worn condor wise. I would not consider buying another pair though just because of the poor quality. I'm not sure why this is one of the most expensive shoes when they are so poorly conducted. I really hope they fix this problem for the future.

      Comfortable but not durable!

      By Anonymous

      from Undisclosed

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

      I bought these to wear to work as an OB nurse. I have worn them three days a week for about 2 months and within the last two weeks I noticed that the outer material is separating on both shoes. Very disappointing for the money that they cost. As for the fit and comfort they are great! I would have bought them again for that but obviously I won't if they are going to fall apart again. Wish I had read the reviews first! Luckily I was able to return them and get my money back.

      I bought two pairs of Gel-Kinsei 5!

      By Anonymous

      from Undisclosed

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

      They're the most comfortable shoe I ever owned. Bright colors! Get a lot of compliments! But, I am very disappointed how they wore out the first 3 months I purchase them.... They ripped across the toe area. I am affair to wash them, I will have to throw them away if I do.... I have a lot of money invested in to pairs.... I will have to wear them until my toes start popping out:( I love them but then I hate that fact they're not lasting as long as want them too for the price I paid:( I would like to buy a new pair of ASICS because I do love the comfort.....I just wish I knew which ones would be comparable to Gel-Kinsei 5? That will last longer then 3 months..... Tana

      worst shoe I have ever purchased

      By Anonymous

      from Undisclosed

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

      I purchased 2 pairs of the Kinsei 5 in Australia because I liked the colours. I have only worn I pair about 6 times over about a 6 klm jog. I am 63 years old. The shoes are falling apart at the seams across the front. It's unbelievable how this Company can sell this shoe at the premium price it does. I suggest you buy something else.
