      Comments about Mens ASICS GEL-Kahana 6 Trail Running Shoe:

      My suite of ASICS consist of Scram (in brick red), Flash (in blue) and the Kahana 6 (in Kermit green!), and I rotate based on my workout focus in the gym; I work out moderately intense and can put any shoe to its test. On "legs and butt" days I wear the Kahana--they provide the stability, glove-like fit, and cushioning I need. For example, lately I squat 5 sets of 210 lbs, 10x, and weigh 197 lbs. These shoes aren't fazed by that much stress and strain at all. I am impressed, and will replace them as long as ASICS commits to continuing to make them. No other brands I've tried so far--and I've tried at least 6 major manufacturers--can come close. GREAT product, ASICS, thank you!

      Comments about Mens ASICS GEL-Kahana 6 Trail Running Shoe:

      I use these for trail running and the treadmill when the weather is bad. They're wide, well cushioned, and have good arch support. Im 205lb and have high arches, and they feel good. They seem to have more cushioning in the forefoot than other Asics FWIW..Yes, they do run 1/2 to a full size small, so order accordingly... (I buy other Asics models at 11, and New Balance at 10 1/2 FYI) They are a great shoe in 4E for wide feet, especially for the price.

          Comments about Mens ASICS GEL-Kahana 6 Trail Running Shoe:

          5'10" @ 190lbs and I run at least 8-10 miles a week.I bought these because I've had the Asics Kahana 4 and 5 previously.I was originaly issued these when I was in the Army.I've always used these for trail running because they were quite rugged and supportive with ample cushion.Well I was very disappointed with this new version. The Kahana 6 really is a far cry from its former self. I find it unsupportive to the point where I was getting shin splints and foot pain.I cant remember the last time I got shin splints..It may be some fancy new design for something but it's no good for what I want it for.I went back to my old 5 series pair and am now looking for a replacement outside the line.It's a shame really…

            Comments about Mens ASICS GEL-Kahana 6 Trail Running Shoe:

            I bought these shoes based on prior positive experiences with Asics with stability, support, durability and comfort. My foot tends to limit my selection due to many shoes being too narrow. I'm a bigger guy and I run between 20-25 miles a week. Right out of the box the shoes felt like I'd been wearing them for a while. I didn't feel like I needed to break them in. Running on dirt, gravel and mud I found them to give me the support I needed and the traction for off-road running. The construction is solid and I think I only wish there was a slightly superior lacing system but that is gravy. I'm considering buying a second pair to throw into rotation which should speak to my feelings about the shoe. I've run these shoes on the road and off-road with equal success. Clean em up after running on the trail and they look brand new.
