      I love running in my neighborhood and on backwoods trails in these shoes. They are light, but provide ample support for my ankles on uncertain terrain. They roll nicely with each step and provide great traction to dig in when ascending dirt and gravel hills.

        Comments about Mens ASICS GEL-Kahana 4 Trail Running Shoe:

        I ordered a 10 and they fit perfect. I have odd shaped feet and can never get a good fit. It takes me hours to find a good fitting shoe. This one fits like a glove. The mesh needs to be more open to allow water out and to provide more breathability. Also, I had to replace the insoles very early on. The top layer rubbed off the foam on my first heavy trail run on the down-hills. But still, I love this shoe and would buy it again. Need more color choices!

            I picked up the Gel-Kahana 4 in preparation for my first 10k trail run; it's my first time ordering shoes on-line and I wasn't expecting to be as pleased as I turned out to be. The run was very wet and muddy and the shoes held up great. I've used them in some of my regular 4-5 mile runs since and they feel great on the road as well. I followed the "order a 1/2 size bigger" advice and that worked out perfectly. Very happy w/ this purchase.

            Hard to find wide shoes for supinators. This shoe is incredibly comfortable, although I have notices a small separation in the seam on one area of mesh after only a couple weeks of use. I will see how they hold up over time, but the comfort is worth it. I have never found a more comfortable shoe than Asics.

              It's not often that I fall in love with a shoe right off, usually there is a break in time. But I tried them on just once and the fit on my wide foot was perfect. My first run was a mixed terrain trail and the felt perfect on both rocky and smooth ground. The next day I was running roads so I opted for a road shoe but found myself missing the Kahanas. Next road run I wore the Kahanas and the felt awesome even for the road. Great multi purpose shoe. Even wear them in the gym.

                    This is the only non-NB trail shoe that comes in 4e width...and I love it (I'm not a big NB fan). This shoe does everything just right for a trail shoe without overdoing it or underdoing it. The sole has a super sticky forefoot area and a great tread for trails. I own two pair of these now. Did a two hour run with the last pair right out of the box. Perfect!

                        Asics is one of the few brands that fits my narrow feet, especially in the arch. It also seems to breath really well which is important in Arizona. Love the cushion and strong heel counter for support. Would definitely recommend this shoe. Hope they continue making it or something very similar.

                          I run two days a week, bike and do light cross fit. I am the really tall guy with big feet, to much weight and knee problems. These shoes feel very comfortable, roll easy in a run, and have plenty of cushion. I like them and will be ordering a second pair.

                            Use mostly for casual walking as a "white gym-shoe" alternative. Excellent fit, extremely comfortable and perfect for the trail or the sidewalk.

                              I was seeking 4E size trail runner for a while, initially I got other models from Asics, they all didn't fit due to the fact they were regular width (Asics, please make other trail runners in 4E!!) I thought I ran out of option, then RRC told me about this model actually comes in 4E. These are very comfortable, actually more comfortable than my Kayano. The two complaints: doesn't look durable with cheap-ish material. Also the color are ugly, Asics are never "stylish" but these scream "cheap!" or should I say "pick me up at [...] discount secion!" Other than that, these are comfortable and works great in mix terrain, including road and packed trail.
