I have been wearing Asics Gel-Kahana for 5 + years. These have been fabulous! I power walk, run, or hike dirt trails daily. They are the best. I noticed from photos that the Kahana 7 has a different heel. Therefore I ordered a Kahana 6 and a Kahana 7 to see if they were improved (which I felt needed no improvement). I am returning the Kahana 7 and not only keeping the Kahana 6 (which is true to size and with cheery orange trim) but I just ordered two more Kahana 6's (another orange trim and the hot pink). The reason is that the Kahana 7 does not have the same thickness gel heel that the Kahana 6 or its predecessors has. It is slightly thinner and it changes the entire fit and comfort of the sneaker. The real difference is very noticeable when you wear one of the Kahana 6 and one of the Kahana 7. The Kahana 7 Does not fit true to size as all the previous Kahanas including 6 does. It is slightly shorter and narrower. I am a med width. Why Asics decided to mess with a great thing I can only surmise it is a price point decision. I've worn every number Kahana and the Kahana 7 is the first dramatic change in the line. Asics Gel - Kahana has been fabulous until 7. I am stocking up on Gel Kahana 6's as Kahana - Gel 7 is a big disappointment!

Great support and traction for sandy/gravelly cross-country hill hiking/running as well as light enough for track/road. Comfortable, no sideways slipping. Appreciate having the wide width! Similar to Gel-Kahana 6, which I was replacing, as hoped.

Asics are always in my top favorite shoe list.I chose the darkest color because I live on a farm and they a super bright. I wore these right out of the box and I find it very hard to take them off! I have super flat feet with fallen arches. They are super comfortable. I am an 8 1/2 and I ordered a 9 that fits wonderfully!!

This was around my 4th pair of Asics Gel Kahanas. They fit my foot well and the treads are great for my daily fitness walks on dirt trails in the hills. I have to get a new pair after about 4-5 months, but only due to the treads wearing down, which I think is unavoidable. The rest of the shoe holds up well. I love this shoe!
