Men's ASICS Gel-Kinsei Blast Running Shoes
An arrangement of GEL technology and FF BLAST cushioning create a soft yet responsive step. After easing into the landing phase, the shoe propels you forward with a smooth transition.
The midsole's shape is inspired by a samurai's curvaceous katana sword. With a Pebax plate in the center, this feature redirects your movement forward and gives your run a faster feel.
I have tons of Asics models. The Kinsei Blast is one of Asics best all around shoe. Nimbus was my go to work shoe,and working out. Metaspeed edge was running, Novablast was a recovery shoe if feet were sore.
The Kinsei Blast can do it all. I can work, and not switch to the metaspeed edge when running and run in the Kinsei Blast and be just as happy if I want that day. To me this 179.99 KB is a steal. I will buy more colorways as I can't find any real weakness in the shoe. I have all top of the line running shoes from brooks, nike, saucony, new balance, adidas, but mostly Asics and no shoe in it's price range and a few that cost more can touch it. It's only a plate from mid sole to heel I think, and it feels way better then my elite 2s, vaporflys, and endorphin pro 2s. The Kinsei Blast will be my next couple purchases in colorways. I noticed out of 40 pair of shoes plus, all running I own, I can't stopping using these shoes for Everything, Work, Run, Play,Walk, Weights. Store, whatever. A good plate not overboard with rocking. The worst is the vaporfly. Stability is terrible for turning and bad grip on wet concrete or street cause slip. This shoe blows any plate away I own except the metaspeed sky and edge is just a bit better for running. If your a Nimbus die hard, try these shoe, I buy more Nimbus shoes then anything, but this maybe my new Nimbus.
