Would recommend this to a friend
The Kahana 5 is a nice basic trail shoe with good cushioning and an outstanding soft, socklike fit. The softness of the upper to me is the best feature of this shoe. I have used it on both roads and non-technical trails and have been very happy with it. The removable sockliner is awesome, as orthotics are a must for me. I have to admit, I am not generally an Asics fan, but these are nice!

No, I would not recommend this to a friend.
These shoes might be great for easy, shorter trail runs, but they are not meant for anything slightly technical or longer than 10 miles. I ran a couple times in them leading up to a big race and liked the cushioning, but they literally fell apart in the heels during the race.
