As we start 2007, if you’re making a new years resolution related to fitness and in the market for new running shoes, I can recommend the Gel-Kinsei, ASICS’ most technologically advanced shoe.
Just how technologically advanced are these shoes? In a recent profile of the best running shoes, Men’s Health described the Gel Kinsei as “packed with more technology than a space shuttle.”
Here is what makes the Gel-Kinsei special, according to ASICS:
I used to run competitively until a knee injury and subsequent surgery ended my running career – or so I thought. During the past two decades, I attempted numerous comebacks with various shoes but was never able to run pain-free.
Now with a combination of strength training and the ASICS Gel-Kinsei, I am back on the road and running pain-free. In September, I ran my first 10K race in 20 years – and I now run to work (and back home) each day as my mode of transportation.
I purchased a pair of Gel-Kinsei running shoes last August and can give them an enthusiastic thumbs up.
