If you are looking for a replacement for your Asics Gel-Kanana 7s, you'll have to keep looking. This is not the same shoe as the 7 you've been used to. This shoe is vastly different in feel and fit. So narrow in the 10.5 I couldn't even shove my foot into it. I had to send them back. But if you've got really, really narrow feet, this might be your shoe but it's no Gel-Kahana 7 and I wish shoe companies would stop messing around with a tried and true shoe like the 7s.

Awesome shoe. These for me have been the most comfortable and true to size and fit for an over pronator. When buying asics make sure you read the info and know whether you are in fact an over pronator vs underpronator or neutral for best fit of the shoe. From work to play and even to workout they are comfortable and still looks great with a pair of jeans. I liked them so much that I have gotten every color. LoL

I'd also recommend: All asics are great

I'm tempted to write that I don't really like these shoes because I don't want them to sell out - that's how good they are. They look great, have excellent cushioning, and are the perfect size. I'm thinking about getting another pair, they are so good.
