FamousFootwear.com asked: Why did you choose this?
- Elizabeth: "great reviews, comfortable, nice looking."
- Erin: "I have plantar fasciitis and this shoe is the most comfortable for standing, and was one of the top recommended shoes for this condition per my physical therapist."
Paula asked: Is this a good shoe for someone with a high arch? I am a underpronator, where my foot doesn't roll inward enough.I know I need more cushioning and less stability. Thanks for replying.
- Laura: "I do not have high arches and I have a neutral gait, so I can't give personal experience with your requirements. These shoes are categories as moderate neutral, so they would accommodate any orthopedics well, if you have them. I do not. That being said, this shoe has both cushion and support, with more emphasis on cushion. It's purpose is to reduce improper pronation. I previously was a fan of Kayano, because of the support, but the last few models haven't provided the cushion needed for additional mileage. So far, I absolutely LOVE the Kinsei. Much more flexible than most shoes with this level of stability and cushioning."
- Abby: "I have a high arch also and I love these shoes!! I tried switching to the Nimbus style (mainly because of cost) but decided it was worth the extra money to get the Kinsei."
- Robyn: "I just got these shoes and have worn them twice. I think the arch support is above normal for a majority of the athletic shoes that you can buy of the shelf. They do not seem to have as much support though as brooks. Love wearing these shoes so far. My feet feel great after my workout(I have worn them for step aerobics and a boot camp class)."
- Storrie: "This is more of a neutral shoe. If you look on asics website it will shoe you asic shoes for underpronaters."
