An extremely durable but very expensive high mileage shoe

Very supportive for a neutral cushioned shoe
Well balanced
Feels just as good at the end of a really long run as at the start
Price. Ouch!
Looks a bit too chavvy
A little heavy and rigid
If you're looking for a shoe that will pound out the miles without losing it's form, this is the one. Gives a comfortable enough ride if you can cope with the shoe's ridgidness, it's inflexibility is the major weakpoint. A shoe for those who do a lot of long runs, providing you're prepared to pay the asking price for it!

Great Shoe

Although the Gel Kinsei 3 is a heavy shoe it most certainly does not feel like one. The movement of the shoe is very natural and confortable while still offering great support
The laces follow the natural contor of the foot which minimises the feeling of pinching, which I normally suffer from due to having a wide foot.
The venting of the shoe is second to none and ensures myfoot never feels hot or sweaty
1) Cost (how much)
2) Looks very space age plastic, a bit to plastic fantastic
These shoes are really well thought out and feel comfortable and although it is often stated these are heavy shoes they do not feel it on your feet, the movement is natural and supportive. Other than the syling and price I am unable to fault them
