ASICS Gel-Kinsei® 5

These are best running shoes, had Kinsei 4 before and I like both. They are expensive but if you want true comfort for running 30-1/2 hours a day it is for you. Way better than Nike Air shoes.

I'd also recommend: Under Armour

Amazing shoes. Great support and comfort. I wear them with orthotics so I can't attest to its arch support

I naturally under pronate which causes a lot of pain when wearing other shoes. These allow me to walk and run properly and the pain is gone. Amazingly comfortable. Light weight. Well worth the price. Will buy again when these wear out.

My son says these are the best asics pair he's ever had. They are light and comfortable and he says they aren't hot. I know they are expensive but we splurged and they have been worth it.
