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.

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.
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.
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.
wish they made the shoe is some standard colors (white)?
