Gel-Kayano continue to exceed expectations

The Gel-Kayano series continues to exceed expectations. Supportive and cushioned base, along with plenty of room in the toe box. I am looking forward to logging many running miles in my new pair.

ASICS Gel-Kayano--Best stability running shoe-EVER

I have run in Kayano shoes for more than 25 years and have consistently found them to be durable, comfortable, and reliable. I have occasionally tried other running shoes, including other ASICS models and other brands but nothing compares with Kayano. I appreciate the cushioning and stability, and at this point in my running life I will not even consider another running shoe.

Toe angle pain

I ordered a half size larger shoe to allow for foot swelling during exercise, walking, etc... I have found my toes feel very tight at the shoes toe area. Is it the toe angle that is not sized correctly for my foot specs? I have used Asics for 30 plus years and the last 2 pair I have owned have both given me this toe discomfort. Please reply... thank you

Kayano 29

I’ve worn Kayano’s for years, best running shoes for shin splints and pronating I’ve ever found, I don’t even consider other brands.

A solid supportive shoe

These fit well and support well. I wish the tongue were longer as well as the back with a loop. That would make putting them on easier

Worst Gel Kayano yet, moving on to another brand

Worst Gel Kayano yet, and I thought the 28 was bad when I needed two replaced under warranty. This shoe ( Gel Kayano 30) is different, I’ve been buying every release since 2011 and this one caused a lot of pain in the ball of my foot because for some reason they’re now U-shaped. Unfortunately after 13 years of comfortable running I’m forced to move on to another brand because ASICS refuses to listen to their customers.

The great Gel-Kayano

This design is a great shoe for my elderly feet. It provides stability and much comfort when wearing for exercise and walking in general. They were recommended to me several years ago by Fleet Feet in Menlo Park, CA and have served well since then.
