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

These are very solid with more foot and ankle support than standard running shoes. They squeak when I walk though, but I will keep wearing them anywhere where it is noisy.

These shoes have great support. I have arthritis in both of my big toes from years of running and these shoes have a firm sole that supports well. Easy to break in, no blisters. And I like them so much I bought two pair. They do run a little small and tight so I went up a half size and a width.

Nice shoes. Definitely more structure and stiffness than the regular runners, but in a good way. Still very cushioned and comfortable as well. Nice and wide toe box as usual with Asics.

These are the first asics that have ever disappointed me. Out of the box they felt pretty good, but after wearing them consistently for a few weeks, the stitching on the front left toe area really started to hurt my big toe- it felt like it was forming a blister. As usual, Zappos was amazing and took the shoes back with no problem at all- they are literally the best company out there! Can't say it enough- please never ever change!
