The shoe fits as expected and is comfortable all around.

I tried these on to insure they are up to the same perfect fit as my first 2 pair.
Frederick L. Huntington | Fit: As expected
I bought this pair when they went on sale - usually indicating the model is discontinued and the new model (Kayano 21 ?)

Product Description

In 1949, Mr. Kihachiro Onitsuka began his athletic footwear company (Onitsuka Co., Ltd.) by manufacturing basketball shoes out of his living room in Kobe, Japan. He chose the name ASICS for his company in 1977, based on a famous Latin phrase "Anima Sana In Corpore Sano," which, when translated, expresses the ancient ideal of "A Sound Mind in a Sound Body." Taking the acronym of this phrase, ASICS was founded on the belief that the best way to create a healthy and happy lifestyle is to promote total health and fitness. Today, ASICS offers a full line of performance-driven athletic shoes and technical active sports apparel and accessories dedicated to bringing harmony to the body and soul.

    I'm a 57 yr old rookie runner. I started running in July 2013 and average 11-12 minutes a mile on asphalt. I'm 6'1" and weigh 205 so I knew I needed shoes with support and padding. These shoes were delivered last night and I took them on a break-in run this morning. I discovered that no break-in was required. I went 6 miles and felt like I was running on air. No foot pain, no ankle or knee pain... My legs and feet feel great. I can't speak for anyone else, but this shoe was made for me.

    Color Name: Lightning/Silver/RoyalSize Name: 10 D(M) US
    This shoe was recommended by an Employee at a Shoe store, after hearing about my knee problems ( Patella femoral ) . The best part about it was this was not a "generic sales pitch" since he did not have the shoes at store .So ordered online and am very happy with it. They are very comfortable and looks good as well. I am not a marathon runner ,but go to gym to do some moderate cardio and weights few days a week. This shoe is not going to cure my knee pains but certainly so far has not aggravated it (which my earlier shoe was doing).

    My previous shoes was Brooks Men's Adrenaline GTS 11 Running Shoe which was good,but certainly not as good as this one.

    MY SUGGESTION : If you are not in a hurry, prior model shoes of the same type ( ASICS Men's GEL-Kayano 19 Running Shoe in this case) goes on sale beginning black friday until new year. You are talking of a price break of fifty dollars or even more . Reminder of the year, the sale are superficial. When in doubt on the fit , go with wide shoes ( E or EE). You can always tighten it with laces if needed.

    Color Name: Black/white/goldSize Name: 13 4E US Verified Purchase
    I have had many pairs of the Kayano 19's, still have a few brand new. I compared the 20 to the 19 with both shoes being fresh out of the box. My experience is that the 20 feels slightly sturdier and the front of the shoe now feels level with the heal of the shoe. More like the sole of the shoe maintains its thickness throughout the shoe.The 19's have a slight rake down from heel to toe, making the ball of the foot area feel low and thin.

    The drawback is the front half of the shoe is smaller on the 20's. So much smaller that they are a no go for me in my usual size, 13-4E. I wore them for a few weeks and they continually hurt my feet being so small. I will try a 13.5 4E if available.

    Color Name: Black/white/goldSize Name: 9.5 D(M) US Verified Purchase
    Shoe was great in terms of running comfort but within two weeks, the inside of the heels started ripping up. The fabric they used for the heels is really light and does not hold up. I had to return the ones from amazon, then purchased a pair from foot locker and had the same fabric issue with them. Foot locker gave me another pair but I am waiting to see how long the new pair will last. It sucks because I really like the Asics shoes and have been preferring them over Nike or Adidas pairs for comfort and stability reasons, however Asics has to really fix this defect/lack of quality with the heel fabric asap!

    These are my second pair of Gel-Kayano 20 Asics and I absolutely love them. I do triathlons and they have been the best shoes I've ever owned.

    I was first introduced to ASICS with the Kayano 18s. I had just switched from Nike and WOW what a difference it made to my running. I over pronate slightly and Nike pegasus is excellent for neutral runners....excellent cushioning btw. I ran in the 18s for a good two months and then for some reason I tried the 19s and WOAH!!, it felt so good and LIGHT. But the 19s lacked the fore foot cushioning. And then I tried the 20s. Initially they felt a little weird because I am guessing they are build a little difference from the previous Karyanos but boy do they have a perfect balance of everything or what.

    So here is the breakdown:
    Kayano 18: Excellent cushion and support, but heavy shoe. If weight is not a problem then that is a great shoe.
    Kayano 19: Feather light. Good support. great toe room. the shoe just hugs your feet like glove. Less gel/cushion.

    Noticed this running on the treadmill for 2 weeks now in Kayano 20 : (Too cold in Chicago still :-(....)
    1. Excellent cushion all over
    2. Good toe room and cushion
    3. Has a bounce to the ride.
    4. I can easily run 4-5 miles and yet my feet don't feel a thing.

    I will post an update as I will be soon running in India and it will be mostly on the pavement. I am so going to take advantage of the warmer climate.
