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!

I'd also recommend: none compare to ASICS

The shoes fits true to size. I do not have the best feet (heel pain) and these shoes felt great the minute I put them on.

I buy Asics more than any other shoe because of the roomy toe bed and snug heel. I have very narrow ankles, and this shoe (like most Asics) hug my heel, keeping my shoe snug on my foot. Yet there is plenty of room for my toes. Good cushioning and arch support too!

I'd also recommend: I generally only wear Asics

Love these shoes! I have had 3 pairs of ASICS, trail running shoes. I do not run, per se as my knees have had old ACL repairs, but I use these for very 'active' walking. I did replace the insole with a 'SuperFeet' insole. Excellent. I am a 9 1/2 to 10- so I purchased 10 to accommodate the 'SuperFeet' insole. The ASICS Kahana 7 are super comfy and look great... highly recommend- and ZAPPOS Rocks!

These sneakers are awesome and I have been wearing them for about 4 weeks now. They fit true to size and have the right amount of cushion in the heel. They are super comfortable when running and there was literally no break in period. I suffered from plantar fascitis a few years ago and am always worried about pounding on my heel and these have been golden!
