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.

Product Details

The GEL-KINSEI™ Blast shoes are designed for distance runners seeking a smooth stride. They keep your mind and body energized to achieve your training goals. 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.



Width: D standard - STANDARD

For men the standard shoe width is D, going up to a wide fitting 2E and the widest a 4E. In New Zealand the most common shoe width size* for men is a 2E. Find out more about widths.

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. The KINSEI BLAST is made for Underpronation, and Neutral.

Underpronation

Foot Type

PUSH OFF

The pressure is on smaller toes on outside of foot.

HOW YOUR FOOT CONTACTS THE GROUND

The outer side of the heel hits the ground at an increased angle with little or no normal pronation, causing a large transmission of shock through the lower leg.

Neutral

Foot Type

Normal size arches

PUSH OFF

There is even distribution from the front of the foot.

HOW YOUR FOOT CONTACTS THE GROUND

The foot lands on the outside of the heel, then rolls inward (pronates) to absorb shock and support body weight.

Product Features

Rated 5 out of 5 by Elsha from Best shoe ever made These shows are amazing, feels like someone helping you to walk and run, worth every cent

Rated 5 out of 5 by Sean C from What a comfy running shoe Bought this for a regular run and it had the most bouncy soles I've ever tried. Asics and Nike are my goto brands for running and this pair did not disappoint. First off, I love the look of it. The colorway and the aesthetics were the main reason I bought it just to be honest. After taking it for a run today, the fit was good. The level of comfort was great. I had no issues with the 3km jog. Just to re-iterate the 3km job was on pavement type ground so I did not test this on trail, grass or soil type surfaces. On the whole I'm very satisfied with this pair and looking to go through more kilometers with it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Heater73 from Great shoe for running and casual use. Purchased after running in Nike Air Zoom Tempo Next% for just under a year. These Kinsei Blasts are lighter on my feet, give me better cushioning and make me feel like running more. My legs don't feel as sore after the run or on the next day. They ook great too. I broke my leg badly in 2018 and since then I've been trying to find running shoes which are comfortable and suit me...I think I've found them.
