Why We Like The Asics Gel-Kayano 29 Lite-Show Running Shoe

As the days grow shorter, most of our runs fall into low-light hours where being seen is key. The Asics Gel-Kayano 29 Lite-Show Running Shoe gives us all the features we love from the Kayano 29 with a highly reflective upper so we can feel safe stride after stride. The updated midsole uses FF BLAST Plus cushioning for a more energizing feel with each step while still keeping the shoe lightweight, while the LITETRUSS stability feature is strategically placed so our feet don't roll too far inwards as we stride along.


  • High cushion running shoe with all-over reflectivity for staying seen

VEry satisfied

I read the reviews and dont understand why people are saying its different than the other Kayano 29s. I have been running with my Kayono 26 for a couple of years now and were the best running shoes for my specific stability needs. With a normal width foot, a slight over pronation, and knee pain when i run for periods over 12 minutes, I tried several competitors (All high end such as Hoka and Saucony), Nothing compares to the comfort of the Kayano. I even Have the Gt 2000 GTX for the rainy days. Even though the Gt are good but the Kayanos are better. 1. The stability fit adjusts my foot perfectly and keeps it like that for the duration of the time i am wearing the shoe. 2. The slightly arched up front tip of the shoe is a great feature to keep the foot arched the right way. 3. The cushioning is great for my knee pain. Please note that i do not expect these shoes to last forever, but they are quite durable. better than my adidas trail running shoes. but in all fairness, the usage of the trail running shoes is much more aggressive.

Cars see me at night!

I love the shoes. I walk at night and I’ve seen cars come too a dead stop when they see me. I would give this 5 stars if it weren’t for the shoe laces. They are sturdier than the cheap ones on the regular Gel Kayano 29 but they are flat and not round. They come loose and I’m constantly having to retie them. I’ve never had trouble with laces on any other company’s shoes… Anyway they feel great and my feet are always happy when the laces are in place. In the past I’ve had to use inserts in all of my shoes but the Gel Kayono shoes have everything I need built into them. Definitely the most comfortable shoes I’ve ever worn.

NOT a Kayano

I have purchased each new version on the Kayano’s for the past four years, including the kayano 29’s. Purchased the lite-show as thought they looked quite nice,, First thing to note these shoes do NOT have a heel lock hole for those who don’t like your feet moving around. Next, insole in left foot is misshaped, feels like insoles are both for right foot. Not a runners shoe, decoration piece only. Can not be worn for long periods as insole on left foot is misshapen. Shoe upper is a thick, foam material, not the same as on kayano 28’s or 29’s

Always Loved Kayanos...But Not The 29's

Have been with Kayanos for 15 years. Buy 4 pairs p/yr. I see people complaining anout the toe box being tighter but I have actually found the forefoot to be extra wide versus previous models. I placed it next to my model 28's and it is visibly wider. The 29 just seems "clunky". Not only in appearance but its feel durning my runs. Gonna try the GT 2000-11. Still an Asics fan but the 29 needs to be slimmed down in the forefoot.

Dont Buy this

Caused my heel to hurt even after using a heel lock tie. Don’t use this shoe, just go buy anything else. When you complain to their department they brush it off and say anything that it’s your fault.
