Product Details

Go wherever the trail takes you in the durable and rugged GEL-Kahana® 8 shoe. Feel the energetic bounceback of the SpevaFoam™ Midsole and rearfoot GEL® cushioning as you connect with the ground and push past the outdoor elements. Reversed lugs on the outsole deliver enhanced traction that's essential for the path less followed.


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 GEL-Kahana 8 is made for Neutral and Overpronation.

GEL-Kahana 8 is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 21.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Arch support These shoes build my arches back up. They run short, so size up. Moreover,they don’t come in wide, but they adjust to wide feet.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Asics PLEASE don't discontinue this shoe! I am a 55 yo female. I bought a pair of these a year ago. Trained for and did the Grand Canyon Rim to Rim (~24 mi) in them. I also have done a lot of long distance mountaineering (12-25 mi, 5-10k+ elevation gain) on and off trail, rugged terrain, light scrambling, while wearing the same pair. Yes, my feet and ankles get a little sore, but not much more than when I wear full leather hiking boots and I love the lighter weight of these shoes when doing distance. I want to replace these shoes and haven't found anything I like as much. Looks like I should have ordered 5 pair when I had the chance. :( Wish Asics would un-discontinue this shoe!

Asics, please don't stop making this shoe. Bonus, LOVE LOVE LOVE the color scheme, can make this shoe work with nearing any clothing.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Love colors Love the colors and they look sporty. Always true to size with good arch support and perfect space in toe box. Could use more cushion inside and sole is a bit rigid with a bit less “give” than desired.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Hole in toe after a few months I have bought this pair of shoes twice now and both times a hole was worn in the toe in under 9 months. They show is comfortable and stylish, but apparently not well constructed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great fitting shoe! I have a narrow foot and it is hard to find a running/walking shoe that fits AND has a good arch support. I've had several pairs of ASICS (medium width) and my foot is shifting around in the shoe, even when it is tied tightly. I LOVE this shoe as is runs narrower than many other Asics shoes and fits my narrow foot perfectly. I walk 4-5 miles a day, and the gel sole provides great cushion, it has good arch support, and wears well, and there are several colors to choose from. I am finding that most manufacturers are adding little, or no, arch support. Please, please, please ASICS, DON'T FOLLOW other manufacturers by cutting back or eliminating the arch support - continue to put good arch support in your running/walking shoes.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Cool Looking! I bought these a couple months ago. Loved the look of them, however I was not able to keep them. The fit was to small.
