The standard (medium) width for women is B, while the standard width for men is D. Shoe boxes and labels will only identify widths other than standard. Within the shoes, wide and narrow widths are identified on the label, underneath the tongue — ie. T005N(2E).

When is additional width needed?
Visible stretching or bulging on the outsides of forefoot materials is a good indicator that additional width may be needed. These sizes are available in many of our Running and Training shoes. In some cases, men can wear women’s styles to achieve a narrow fit and women can wear men’s to get a wide. If this is needed, please use the references above to determine comparable size lengths. Please note that the differences of width between narrow, standard, wide, and extra wide are usually only a couple millimeters and are proportional to the size of the shoe. Most additional width will be found in the forefoot.

Pronation

Pronation is part of the natural movement of the human body and refers to the way your foot rolls inward for impact distribution upon landing. Understanding your pronation type can help you find a comfortable running shoe. ASICS GEL-Kahana 8 is made for neutral, over.

How Your Foot Contacts the Ground
The foot lands on outside of the heel, then rolls inward (pronates) to absorb shock and support body weight.
Push Off
There is even distribution from the front of the foot.
Considered Injuries
Less likely due to effective shock absorption, but neutral runners are not immune to injury.
Foot Type
Normal size arches
Overpronation
How Your Foot Contacts the Ground
The foot lands on outside of heel, then rolls inward (pronates) excessively, transferring weight to inner edge instead of ball of the foot.
Push Off
Big toe and second toe do majority of the work.
Considered Injuries
Shin splints, plantar fasciitis, bunions, heel spurs.

Low arches or flat feet.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Two narrow Been wearing the kahana gel for 10 years, bought the 8 way 2 narrow. Very disappointing used to buy 2 pairs a year. Hope the kahana gel 9 goes back to the same foot bed it used to have

Rated 5 out of 5 by from amazing shoe! Ive been professionally fitted for a running shoe (YEARS ago) and thats how I found Asics. I have high arches and I am an over-pronator so that really limits shoes I can buy. I needed a good supportive shoe since my old shoe where giving me tennis shoe neuropathy. Insert Gel Kahanas. They have been amazing and I haven't had any neuropathy since. I am actually buying another pair for work (Im a RN). My shoe size is 8.5 but I bought a 9 knowing that your foot expands some when running or if you are on your feet all day as I am. 9s felt a bit too big at first but have adjusted nicely now that I have had these shoes for 3-4 months. My only qualm is that the back heel seems to push my no-sock socks down to my toes more than I like so I have to wear higher socks. Id give the shoes 4.5 stars if I could because of that. If you are on the fence about sizing, go up a half size. (If it helps I have tried the Asics Ventures on and I wear a 8.5.) Thanks Asics for making shoes that aren't so girly in colors and please continue the Kahana line!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this shoe! I got these shoes for Christmas, and am exceedingly happy with them. Thank you ASICS for realizing that girls have big feet too! My size 11 1/2 shoes are sturdy enough for the trail, but light enough for the street. I will continue to buy these, as they are true to size and comfortable.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Impulse Win I bought these trail shoes on a whim and Love them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sensitive Feet! I received my Asics Gel Kahana 8 size 11 womens shoe today. I immediately put them on and took a 2 mile walk around my ranch with rocky inclines and rocky paths. My feet are thin, bony, and long with a mild over pronation. OMG I love these shoes. They run narrow which is what drew me to them in the first place because size 11 shoes are normally way too wide for me. These are perfect. I had absolutely no pressure points on my feet, no sensations in my hips, knees or ankles. I rate them the best I have tried yet. I don't know about durability yet since I just got them, so may have to do an update later. Currently training for half marathon using my ranch as the training venue.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not the same quality I'm used to After a month the sole was separating from the shoe on the front. The shoe looks like I've used it for years. Disappointed and frustrated.
Date published: 2017-12-10
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Narrower than previous versions but still my go-to Yes, the Kahana 8 is narrower in the toe box than previous versions of this shoe. Other than that, though, I think this is still the same great shoe. If you have flat feet, this one's for you!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfection! These sneakers are awesome! They are extremely comfortable! I used them when I walked for two miles. My feet felt great! I will definitely buy Asics again!
