    If you are looking for an everyday shoe or have only a passing interest in running, you'll probably want to go buy something less expensive. Yes, the Kayano 16 is an expensive shoe. If you have adopted a running lifestyle, are running a significant number of miles per week (25+), or are training for a marathon or half-marathon, you know the value of a good shoe and the Kayano is worth the investment.
    The quality of the construction is fantastic. I have logged 400 miles on these shoes and they are holding together perfectly. The ride is soft and the shoe feels light on the feet. The space in the toe box has drastically reduced the number of blackened toes and lost toe nails. The manner of running the lacing down the line of the foot makes for a much more comfortable and secure fit.
    If you are a runner looking for a great investment in your feet, the Kayano 16 is a fantastic choice.

    This shoe has absolutely the best support there is around. I shopped around a bit and nothing could beat this one. The first time I used it, I felt the medial arch support it gave (that's why it's great for people with flexible flat feet - moderate overpronators). This shoe is perfect for running on roads, in trails and moderately uneven terrain. It cushions for impact and if you want better support than this, I would suggest getting the green Superfeet shoe insert in place of the current insert for better shock absorption.

    This is a shoe that I see myself using not just every day at work (I am a physical therapist and I am on my feet 8 hours a day) but also getting many miles of running on them. You are getting an excellent pair of shoes for its price.

    Sizing: Feels true to size

    Width: Feels true to width

    Pros: Good Arch Support, Durable, Breathable, Moderate Pronation Control, Cushions Impact, Comfortable

    Best Uses: Road Running

    I have been using Kayanos since the 12s, getting one or two every year. They are getting better, and this is the best so far. I am a big guy with over 200 pounds , and I run about 15 miles per week. These shoes provide good cushioning and support, my feet, knees and ankles like them.

    Man, I should've went with these pair in the beginning and save my time some trouble. First went with the pair of Reebox ZigZag and then Reebox something. Both weren't very comfortable. It felt very tight on the side and a bit heavy.

    These ASCICS are light and extremely comfortable. I have been using them the past 3 days and love them. Great on treadmill, great on elliptical, and great on brisk walk.

    This shoe is the one I find fits my foot best and I order it again and again. Great for a pronator. Feels good all around, too.

    I am a casual runner (10-15 miles a week) and I've been using Kayano's for about three years now. Prior to using them I suffered from pretty severe plantar fascitis that really limited my ability to train. These shoes have great stability and in my opinion, have really helped me overcome my plantar fascitis. I've run countless 5 & 10Ks in these shoes as well as a few half-marathons. I would recommend them for anyone who wants to take care of their feet, but get the workouts they want. The Gel Kayano 16 surely doesn't disappoint.

    I run 50 miles/week, about 7 miles per day. These Asics Gel Kayano 16's are awesome. My feet don't feel tired at all, if I had more energy and breath I could probably go further on these. Cushioning is excellent, fit is great, very comfortable even on long runs. I usually alternate my running shoes, running w/ one pair, then a different pair the next day. I bought a 2nd pair for when I'm ready to retire these and will probably buy the Gel Kayano 17s after wearing out both my pairs of 16's.

    I am extremely disappointed with this shoe.

    I typically used neutral shoes, but at the advice of an orthopaedist, I decided to upgrade to a motion control shoe. I was originally recommended the GT series as a good "mid-range" price shoe, but after shopping around, I decided to go top of the line and get the Kayano, figuring it would last me a long time.

    The shoe was incredibly comfortable right off the bat, I was amazed. I used to be a fan of Saucony shoes, which were great, but only after a "break in" period. These ones however I liked from the start.

    You can imagine my disappointment then, when a tear started to develop at the end of the toe after just a few months. I am used to the cushioning at the heel starting to go after about a year, but in this shoe, it too started to deteriorate extremely quickly. The hole at the toe has started to grow unfortunately - and there is nothing it seems that I can do.

    What's more is that I am now only a casual runner, and my shoes barely see much usage, so this surprised me extremely. I do not know if this is a trend with all Asics shoes, since the the one pair of Saucony Progrids I have tried 5 years ago have lasted me extremely well for about 2 years (!) at a time when I was much more into running.

    I just feel extremely disappointed that after spending top dollar for what I thought would be a high quality shoe, I have to purchase a second pair in less than a year, while shoes that cost almost half as much had lasted much longer. Unfortunately it is not in my budget to buy 2 pair of running shoes per year.

    I have emailed ASICS and will post an update if they reply.

    If you are like me, and do not have the budget to throw out shoes after a few months of moderate use, skip this shoe - NOT recommended.
