Gel-Kayano 26 Running Shoe

Now old enough to be kicked off its parent's health insurance, the Asics Gel-Kayano 26 Running Shoe returns in its newest iteration. Known as one of the most trusted options in max-cushioned stability shoes, the newest version of the Gel-Kayano is no different. It's designed for runners who have a penchant to go long, those who need a bit more cushioning on everyday runs, and those who find themselves overpronating in their stride. Key to its performance is the innovative midsole, which not only features the bouncy and responsive FlyteFoam cushioning compound, but also has a DuoMax dual-density system that helps prevent overpronation. It does this by placing a firmer foam on the inside of the foot to prevent your foot from rolling inwards, and accomplishes the task without having to add a bulky or uncomfortable medial post into the shoe.

Meanwhile, a Guidance Trusstic system works to ensure a smooth transition from heel-strike to toe-off so that your stride will stay easy and efficient as you pick up the pace on quicker runs around the block. On longer runs, however, you'll be thankful for the beefed-up rear Gel cushioning unit, which absorbs impact on landing as you start to fall back on your heels on higher distance, more fatiguing runs. You've got all of that plus Asics' high-abrasion rubber (AHAR) on the outsole to withstand mile after mile on the pavement, along with a jacquard mesh upper for breathability and comfort in warmer weather, giving you a shoe that's got things pretty well put together for a 26-year old.
