          This is my second pair of Gel-Kahana 4's and I couldn't be happier with this shoe. Right of the box they are comfortable and great for my flat feet. The price is great and is no way a refletion on the quality of these shoes. I've tried other styles for twice the cost and haven't found anything that fits better and provides enough support for road and trail running.

                I am a typical first time 1/2 marathon lady, training away. I never really thought about shoes, but ran in Asics Gel Nimbus. I'm 42, stocky, but a neutral runner. These are "trail shoes" but they are very supportive, have great cushioning, and feel great. I like them better than any other running shoe I've tried, and as the miles get higher, they seem to be holding up great.

                Comments about Womens ASICS GEL-Kahana 4 Running Shoe:

                Asics makes a good walking shoe. However, there is NOTHING LIKE the Gel Kahanna 3, which is sooooo comfortable! I have "difficult" feet, and these are the best shoes I've ever worn. Unfortunately, I understand that, for some reason, they are not being manufactured anymore. The Gel Kahanna 4, while not quite the same, are an acceptable substitute. I have very narrow feet and the Gel...3 just seems to "cradle" them. The Gel...4 is a bit more bulky and somewhat heavy on the feet, but they are ok and better than most, at least for me.

                  I used to wear the GT-2150, and since I'm mostly a pavement runner, I switched to the Kahana. It's light, cushioned and responsive, and so far, it's been great for marathon training.

                      I have Plantar facitis, and I have tried many different shoes to help alleviate the pain, and this shoe solved my foot issues. The cushioning is superb. No more heel pain. I usually take a wide width, but this shoe fit fine in the B width.
