About me: I'm a casual runner--a handful of miles a week if that. My exercise includes jogging, sprints, calisthenics, interval style work-outs and weights. I like to use the same shoe for everything and while a cross-trainer is most likely better suited for my needs I prefer running shoes and haven't had any problems. About the shoe: I purchased a size 7 wide with the bright orange accents. The orange is very bright: think neon. I happen to like this as orange is a color I like and the appearance of the shoe is invigorating... I went with the wide because previous reviews mentioned the shoe runs narrow and I have a somewhat wide foot. Feel... Fabulous. Roomy toe box gives enough room for my toes, good support throughout my movements, and excellent cushioning when I strike the ground. Previously, I wore Brooks GTS 12 size 7 wide & I enjoyed that shoe very much as well, though, if purchasing Brooks again I'd go with a normal fit because I feel that model runs wide. Zappos is a phenomenal site with excellent selection and superior customer service that is second to none.

The shoe looks great but when I tried on my normal size 9.5 medium width it was so snug, the shoe was stiff, and it felt like a trail sneaker. The inside cushioning feels up to quality. If you have a narrow foot maybe you ll like this shoe. In the picture it looks great but in person it looks cheaply made. I always have trouble finding sneakers but I've mostly worn Nike the more flexible ones not the stiff narrow air max tailwind series. Most recently Nike dual fusion and pegasus 28 models. The newer models are never made like the last great ones. Recently I tried the Brooks adrenaline gts 12 in wide width, The 9.5 medium gave me foot pain where I over pronate on the out side of the food, and the wide width fixed that. What a great ride, the sneaker does most of the work as you walk, it rolls of the ground. Good luck in your search. I love zappos super fast service!

I only wear Asics athletic shoes, and though I am not a runner, I am an avid walker. I also work as an x-ray tech and am on my feet for eight hours a day. These Gel-Kahana 6 shoes, along with the Exalt, are my favorites. They provide great support and the pain from my plantar fascitis and heel spurs has completely subsided. They are good looking and I like the colors and are reasonably lightweight. I have narrower than average feet with a very narrow heel and I find the medium to work fine for me. I find that all the Asics I've had are a little on the narrow side, which is perfect for me. I always wear a 10 1/2 in Asics and these are no exception (nice to find this rarely made size!). The mesh keeps my feet well ventilated...mine sweat a lot! All in all, a nearly perfect shoe!

Asics is truly the most comfortable running/training shoe. I've always bought the Kayanos because I'm a moderate-high overpronator. I wanted an additional shoe that would be good for outside running/jogging on and off road. The Kahana is perfect for this and has a great outsole. I love Asics because I can take out the insole and put in my Superfeet. I wear a 9 in most shoes but I always order 9 1/2 asics and they're perfect.

I'd also recommend: Brooks, Saucony

I have Kahana shoes that I purchased a few years back. They were comfortable on my feet but I am afraid that these shoes are not so comfortable. I found them to be really tight in width. I am a medium (B) width and these were squeezing my feet. I am returning them for different trail shoes. I also had an issue with the hot pink. These go beyond hot pink! The pink was just too much for me. Maybe this color would look good on a young lady but I am middle-aged and they were not me. I love pink; just not this pink. I love the bottoms of the shoes. Great tread. I am just sorry that they did not work out for me.

I'd also recommend: Sacony is OK if I can find an arch support for them.
