I wore these for the first time and went out for my normal 5 mile run. By 3 1/2 miles the ball of my foot started to hurt. These didn't have the cushioning that I expected from the details that were listed when I bought these. I've gone back to my Nike Air Max 2012, which has plenty of cushioning from front to back.
I only bought these because of the style looked really awesome and it stated it was a neutral plus sneaker, but unfortunately I think it should be in the neutral category, not the "plus".
I was going to keep them just because they looked really great, but I couldn't justify the price for just everyday use instead of running, so I returned them.
I've tried the Brook Glycerin 9 and they were good, but didn't last as long as the Nike Air Max 2012, so until something comes out better, I'll stick to the Nike Air Max.

A nice, comfortable fit. I gave these a try after being miserably disappointed with the Nimbus 14's, and I like them a lot. Cushioning is very nice and they seem to be maintaining their cushioning much better than the Nimbus. My Nimbus shoes were great but wore out very quickly.
I gave this one four stars due to the price which is a bit high. With VIP discounts, it's not as bad. But I guess the trade off is that if these last longer, then they're more cost effective than the Nimbus.
Also, the colors rock! They match nearly all of my work out gear because of all the colors.
Overall, I'm very pleased with this purchase!
I absolutely love these. I've been running in ASICS for years, this is my first pair of Kinseis. Lightweight, comfortable - I feel great running in these. I was nervous to spend so much on sneakers, but they are worth it. The design and color in each shoe is fantastic. I get compliments on these shoes every time I wear them. I also wear these to the gym when I weight train as they are a great neutral shoe. Thumbs up ASICS and great job being first to market asymmetrical shoes!
I like them too!
I had loved Kinetics, but when they were discontinued I had to find another Asics. First time I wore these Kinsei 4 loved them. (I teach high impact grp fitness classes) Second time I wore them, they hurt my feet. But because I loved the look of the shoe (and get compliments on them all the time-- the pink on top, with lime and other colors) I tried again. They felt great again. Don't know why but on the second time wearing them I tightened up the laces. -- IF THEY HURT YOUR FEET TRY LOOSENING THE LACES A BIT, -- MADE A WORLD OF DIFFERENCE FOR ME!
This is my first pair of Asic Kinseis and I have to say I am so incredibly happy with them. I was a little hesitant beacause some people have told me they are very stiff and uncomfortable. I don't have any complaints, they feel like clouds on my feet. The asymmetry of the colors of the shoes are amazing too!! So fun! These are definitely worth the money.
This shoe is The best !
THESE ARE THE BEST RUNING SHOES IVE EVER OWNED! BE FOR THESE I WAS RUNNING IN A NIKE AND MY HIPS, KNEES AND BACK HURT WHEN DONE WITH MY RUN. AFTER RUNING IN THE GEL - KISEI 4 NO PAIN AT ALL AND I WAS ABLE TO COMPLETE THE RACE WITH OUT STOPPING AS I HAVE NEEDED TO DO IN TIMES PAST DUE TO PAIN. THESE SHOES ARE PRICY BUT WORTH IT!
These are my favorite Asics so far. I own several pair. I am an occasional runner and was having some heel trouble with my other Asics. So, I decided to splurge and these were/are comfortable from day one. I would wear them everyday but alas they don't really match too many outfits! But, for comfort - I love them!
Worth the $$
I have terrible arches and wear custom orthotics, but have very narrow heels. I had been wearing the Kinetics but V4 of those was terrible (too wide and shallow in the heel). It was either back to the Kayanos or try the Kinsei 4. Glad I did. They stabilize my heel/arch area, but are flexible on the ball of my foot, where i tend to strike.
Love these shoes!
Great cushioning and support yet incredibly lightweight - I use them for everything from road training to boxing. As an added bonus, I get at least 2 or 3 people telling me how awesome they look every time I wear them!
Comfortable on long runs
Comfortable for long runs. Great for marathon training. I am a size 7.5 in regular shoes and got a size 8 in this and it worked great. I'm getting another pair for my marathon.

I run to burn fat, distance and hill sprints. I do a gym work that includes sprint work, side to side running and plyometrics.
Very cushioning shoe, very comfortable. I've used it to run in and to work out in the gym and it's been great for both uses.
These look awesome and were soooo comfortable for my first half marathon!
comfort with a stability
I loved this shoe...I'm on my second pair...wore out the first

This shoes fly me, love it worth the prices!!
Does get people's attention. Even had one person asked if they could take a picture of the shoes. A fun shoe for an everyday workout/run......
Worth every penny!!!
I love these shoes!!! received so many compliments, everyone loves them. I love the Kinsei line and buy them every time a new pair comes out.
