Wow!!!! Absolutely winner !
I'm amateur long distance runner and I run distances between 10K _ 30K once or twice a week. I wore them first time today and guess what: I'd improve my PB's on 20K and Half Marathon distance run today!! I'm 53 years old and first time in my short running career (2 years) I was able to run a negative splits - faster pace on second part of the run. PROS: This shoe have a unbelievable amortization and stability!!!! After 15K run my legs did feel soo good, because all that pro-sporting scientific features this shoe have to protect my legs from all that hard asphalt pounding!! CONS: They very expensive ( $189.99) and little to heavy (sic) - 11.8oz, but that incredible amortization cover that extra weight and make this shoe IMO a winner !!! Worth every penny!!! I still love my Nike Flyknit Trainer+ shoes, but I'll use them only at the summer, because they have very light weight(7.8 oz)

excellent pair on your feet
These are the most amazing pair of shoes I have ever worn.. The only drawback is the price..

I've owned the two previous models of asics Gel-Kinsei shoes and had high expectations on this new model to replace my worn out Kinsei 3. They've exceeded my expectations by far and are the most comfortable shoe I've owned. My local Dick's didn't have this model on-hand but owning the previous models I knew this was the shoe I wanted so I ordered it online.
I work retail at Lowe's and use these shoes serve multiple purposes, from walking the dog at home to standing on concrete floors at work or just everyday usage.. The cushion these shoes provide is great and they seem to be like pillows hugging your feet. The shoes run true to size and are very comfortable even if you have a wider foot. The gel design to this shoe works well for me as I pretty much walk on the outside half of my feet. They hold up well and should be fairly durable. This pair unlike the previous pairs did require about a week of use before they were broken-in to my liking. I only wish they came in some more conventional colors. (Note: In doing some additional research for family members I did find some additional conventional colors in this same model on the market). The price is the only downfall to this shoe but as in the past it has been worth it.
Dick's was great in the process the shoes were shipped right to my home, free of charge and they sent e-mails along the way updating me on the status of my order. Overall I received a great product and had an excellent experience with Dick's

Great product and qualified employees.
My new running shoes are great. I was struggling with knee pain but now I am competing again. The young Lady(Red Hair) was very helpful as she is an experienced runner and had experience to offer with these specific shoes. She ordered them at the store and they arrived in Two Days. These are the third pair of runnning shoes I bought at Dicks. Thanks, Mickey
