I only wear sneakers and used about 2-3 Kayano in 2E per year before. Kinsei was recommended to me by the ASICS shop in Newport Beach. It's remarkable and far superior to Kayano. The regular D width fits my D+ width perfectly. This means that I'll have a choice of color instead of having to accept the only Kayano 2E color, typically white. The Kensei stability feature isn't as extreme as Kayano which suits me fine. The gel heel is ideal for preventing plantar fascitis and the sole is generally softer and grippier than Kayano's. I am a 73 yr old former runner, recovering from recent plantar fascitis and this shoe is perfect.This shoe is their masterpiece. Try it once and you'll never go Kayano again. Well worth the slight extra cost.

Best cushioning show around. Enough room in the box for feet that are wider at the front. Some running shoes get too narrow in the toe area.

I am not a runner but needed a good comfortable asics. I keep a pair for more than 5 years so I was concerned with nothing but pure comfort and a good fit. I have been in a pair of nimbus a long time and found the kinsei 6 more comfortable. The fit was a full size larger than my nimbus but with the excellent return policy at zappo i got the correct fit. Man are these a pleasure to wear With a 40.00 off regular price, an easy decision for me to upgrade!!
