The ASICS GEL-Kinsei 5 running shoes are available for preview. My first thought when I saw these was…I am so glad that they changed the look of these shoes. I’m sure most of you will disagree with me but I really didn’t like the way the Kinsei 4’s looked. The GEL-Kinsei 5’s are so much better, in fact, they look GOOD. They have a great diamond pattern. They even look faster.

Do you remember when the Kinsei 4’s came out? I do. I was worried. After being slightly disappointed up until the Kinsei 3, I was concerned with what ASICS would do with the Kinsei 4. However, my fears were unfounded. Now, faced with the newly updated GEL-Kinsei 5, I felt that familiar update fear. This time I definitely had no reason to worry. These shoes are fantastic.

The ASICS GEL-Kinsei series is known for being packed with technology.  And, in the Kinsei 5, ASICS doesn’t skimp on the latest and greatest they have to offer: FluidRide™ in the midsole makes these shoes lighter and more durable, and offers the perfect amount of bounce back; Propulsion Trusstic® mimics connective tissue in the foot as the foot enters the propulsion stage; the Heel Clutching System exoskeletal heel counter provides better support and a better fit. Finally, the outsole uses ASICS’ Discrete Heel Unit™, this is ASICS’ highest level of shock attenuation and stability.

In addition to all of the fantastic technology, this update is comfortable. Both the tongue and heel collar are padded, and you can feel it as soon as you put on the shoes. The upper has seamless construction which also adds to the overall comfort and improves the fit. The first thing I noticed when I started running was how the upper moves and bends with my foot. The Kinsei stayed comfortable throughout my entire run.

If you want a shoe with cutting edge technology (and really, who doesn’t) then try out the ASICS Gel-Kinsei 5. It’s comfortable, light and durable. Overall, it’s a fantastic update, jam packed with the very best Asics has to offer. In my opinion, it looks better and is even more comfortable than the last version. The Kinsei are made for people with moderate underpronation to moderate overpronation.
