Comments: Finally got this, and I love it. I'm usually running in a much lighter shoe (Nike LunarGlide 6), but took this for 4mi while I was helping someone train and I didn't notice the weight nearly as much as I thought I would. Great support for my flat feet (still haven't put my Aetrex L420 in them, though) and cushion for my bad knees (thanks, genetics). Also, the all black par looks like a shoe Batman would wear, so bonus.

Comments: Got these to rotate with my Hurricane 16's. On my first run I found that the heel was very soft and overall the feel of the shoe was really mushy. Guess I'm not used to such a super soft shoe. Returned for another pair of Hurricane 16's-great Running W/H exchange policy! The Hurricanes have a firmer heel, but still have great forefoot foot cushioning. Building my long runs up to 13-14 miles as I run half marathons. I am a moderate pronator with flat arches and weigh 160 lbs.

Comments: Just tried these today for a run and wow; for me the best kayano since the 10. The shoe is better cushioned than the nimbus and it hugs the foot in a way that it hasn't in years. The posting isn't noticeable so it feels like a stable neutral shoe. Asics hit a grand slam and I say this being unhappy with many of the shoes during the last several years.
