    Very good shoe. Used for walking around on a daily basis. Helps with overpronation and keeps pressure off knees and ankles. Shoe recommended.

      Comments about Womens ASICS GEL-Kanbarra 5 Running Shoe:

      I just decided to get my body back into shape after a pregnancy ravaged it. I had tried shox and all other kinds of expensive high tech shoes. At 210 lbs, I needed something that would help control my ankle movement and cushion my weight as I hit the gym for intense circuit training. I am so glad I found this website and used the prompter to help me select the best shoes for me, and they were right! These shoes are durable, lightweight, have great cushioning, and have never let me roll my ankles! The only thing that could make this shoes just a bit better for we heavier gals is a little more arch support, not that it's bad, but being heavier makes your feet want to flatten out. But that's not the shoe's fault. And I think that the more weight I lose, the less of an issue it will be. But I give this shoe two thumbs way up and will be purchasing another pair when these wear out. Thank you road runner sports!!!

      These are a great pair of affordable shoes, my only criticism is that they wear out pretty quickly. You can still use them, the arch support just disappears :(

          I primarily trail run but resort to hiking when my dog isn't up to running. So the Gel-Kanbarra 5 serves either purpose on any given day. In this economy, it's nice to get a good shoe at a great price.

              When I decided I wanted to start running, I picked these up because of their affordable price. I've put about 100 miles on them now and just upgraded to a more cushioned/technical shoe since my mileage is increasing significantly, but I still really like these for long runs. They're a little bit stiff and don't have a lot of cushioning, but they're still really comfortable and I'll probably continue to wear them on runs under 5 miles. It's a good shoe, especially for the price!

              Very comfortable. Lightweight. They don't have a lot of cushioning. I will probably have to get a new pair soon because I'm entering into my high mileage phase of my training and since they don't have a lot of cushion I just don't think they are going to last through the many miles I have to do. I might wear them on tempo runs or workout days but probably not on long runs.

                  I love the fact that these shoes didn't need breaking in. I use cross trainers when I work in the gym and these Asic shoes felt better than my old ones. I love that it is very light and provided better stability. I thought that I can only find great running shoes if I spent a ton of money on it. These shoes are a great value, no bells or whistles but gives you all you need for a good run. Thanks!

                  This shoe is excellent for even the high-mileage runner; I get 3 pairs at a time. They don't last as long as the Cumulus shoe but they're so lightweight and provide enough cushioning even for longer runs. The fit is true to size for Asics brand (I buy 1/2 size bigger) and the style and colors are cool! I ran the Chicago Marathon in a pair and just loved the comfort!

                            I bought the Kanbarra because it looked good. It also feels great. I recently hurt my foot and this shoe offers tremendous support while I'm healing.
