Rated 5 out of 5 by Phil I love Asics
This is my second pair of Asics. I love the way they fit and feel. They last longer than other brands I have tried which makes them a good value. I look forward to my 3rd pair of Asics!

Rated 5 out of 5 by DocAmadeus EXCELLENT for trail or road!
This is the third time I have purchased this line of shoes. I previously have owned the Kahana 3 and Kahana 5 models. I must admit that when I purchased my original pair, I did not know that these were "trail" shoes. I run the majority (but not all) of my miles on "road" terrain, and I had equal if not more wear time with these shoes as compared to other Asics models that I have purchased in the past; therefore, I would not hesitate to recommend purchasing these shoes for road running. I currently run some shorter distance races (5K - 10K).
What these shoes give is cushioning for heavy heel strikers (like all of the Asics DuoMax Support System models) and more mid-foot control than most Asics models. If you significantly over-pronate, these shoes may take some time to get used to in your medial arch.
As you can see since I'm on my third pair of Kahanas, I love these shoes. Unless you are running marathon distances, don't be scared off because these are called "trail" shoes!

These shoes perform well and are a great price. I would recommend them highly. They can handle my larger size very well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by lnordrvr Best $75 running shoe out there!
15-20 mi/wk runner. Have tried many of Asics line from the base to the $120 pair. The Kahana is my first repeat model. Great feel, excellent sole wear, and plenty of cushioning for us heel strikers. Marketed as a "trail" shoe, but I prefer them over any "road" shoe I've ever owned. For the price, the best shoe you can buy.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Ministerjoel I recommend...
Great shoe, comfortable, nice looking...however the tred started to detach immediately. Asics said that was because I was on pavement and concrete more than "trail" however they would still honor their warranty. I want the same shoe! ;-)

Rated 4 out of 5 by Martin E. Nice kicks!
Well after a year, I migrated from a pair of Asics Gel Nimbus shoes to the Kahana series shoe. I run three times a week, both pavement and cross country. The Kahana 6 series is just above the bottom series, I would recommend them over the baseline Kahana, because these definitely have more tread for the cross country runs. They have good padding and for what I paid for them new, they are a better built shoe than NewBalance or Nike could provide for the same price. I am about two weeks into using them and have noticed a performance boost, remember if you are a regular runner, take care of replacing your shoes regularly. Also for reference, running is the only activity I use non-boot shoes for, in case you fall into that category as well.
