Lace Up and Run With ASICS GEL-Kinsei Sneakers for Men
Whether training for your first or fiftieth marathon, the ASCIS-GEL Kinsei OG will help you glide through endless miles on the trail, road, or track. Originally debuting in the early 2000s, the OG has made a comeback featuring its same retro style with all new enhanced features.What features do these ASICS GEL-Kinsei OG shoes offer?
The biggest thing you'll notice is on the heel of the GEL-Kinsei OG. It has three separate gel pods between the shoe and sole. These pods are meant to cushion the joint against shock. Since they all work independently of each other, they also help you keep your balance on uneven terrain. The upper part of the shoe is exactly like the old GEL-Kinsei you'd find a decade or so ago giving it a retro-type feel. The style of the shoe shouldn't fool you because it still has the newest technologies built in to provide a smooth, stable ride for your entire run. Some of these features include:
- TRUSSTIC SYSTEM Technology: Helps to make the shoe lighter without sacrificing durability
- AHAR + Outsole: AHAR (ASICS High Abrasion Rubber) material enhances durability mile after mile
- ORTHOLITE Sockliner: Moisture-wicking and breathable removable liner to make sure you stay dry and fresh
- IGS (Impact Guidance System): Enhances the natural gait to increase stability
The ASICS-GEL Kinsei OG comes in men's sizes 5-14 and in regular width only. Overall, most customers feel that the shoe is true to size but on the narrow side. It is probably a good idea to order your normal size or half a size up if you prefer a little more room. For additional information on sizing, please check the manufacturer's site.What are some style features of the ASICS-GEL Kinsei OG?
You'll find synthetic leather for the logo and toe guard over old-school mesh, just like the originals. They come in a variety of both vibrant or more subdued colors. Most have matching white or black lace-up closures, but a few come with a bungee cord type closure that tightens with one pull. While designed with an athletic style, the ASICS GEL-Kinsei OG are stylish enough to wear out or to be an everyday shoe.
