Apart from being very expensive the Kinsei is a relatively heavy shoe and has some support.
The Cumulus and Nimbus are the main Asics 'neutral' shoes.
Most people land on the outside of their heel and roll inwards. Even people who are mid foot strikers still come down significantly on the heel (just not the edge). It is how the body absorbs the shock.
Supinators tend to land on their heel(sometimes the middle of the heel) and roll outwards at the end of their gait cycle. So they tend to launch off the outside toes rather than the big toe/ball of the foot
Over pronators roll in too much after striking usually at the outside heel.
It sounds, from what you've said that you are probably a neutral runner or mild overpronator. You may get away with a neutral shoe like the Cumulus (Nimbus may be a bit heavy if you've been running in DS trainers) but the 1150 sounds a better fit. And it is not particularly expensive.
I would of course recommend that you try them on before making any decisions.
