    I loved my Kayano 14s, so when it was time to buy new shoes, I hit the internet for a second pair. Unfortunately, they quit making them. I decided to order a pair of the 15s, but I was disappointed. They felt very different from the 14s, and not only caused a lot of foot and ankle pain, they also made my lower back hurt. I sent them back and went to my local running store where I was introduced to the 16s. According to the store, there was a pretty quick turn around between the 15s and 16s. I feel the 16s compare much better to the 14s. My first time out in them, I was able to go 9 miles with very little toe-rubbing/breaking-in issues.

    Long story short, if you are looking to replace your 14s, skip the 15s, and try the 16s. They're a much better transition for us flat-footed and moderate pronators!

    I bought these last minute to run a 5K. They fit perfectly, even with my custom orthotics(I had to pull out the original lining). I would definitely purchase these again.

    I love this shoe; It is the most comfortable shoe I own and I love working out in them. These shoes saved me from very painful shin splints that I would often get from previous shoes. When I first bought them, I did not have any pain from breaking them in for a few weeks, but then a couple of my toes got calluses that were a little painful at first, but went away the more I used the shoes. The only disappointing factor about these shoes is they were weak in the construction area. The heel on the inside of the shoe got torn up within 2 months of ownership, and the left side of the opening lip of the shoe got torn within the first 6 weeks of ownership. frustrated with their short life after being told they would last around 8 months, I took it back to the store and I am very happy to say they made an exchange! I am hoping the last pair was just a fluke and this new pair will stay together longer. I am still in love with these shoes and highly recommend these--but be aware of any signs of damage/wear and tear early on and return them immediately if noticed!

    This is my 4th pair of Gel-Kayanos. I am a nurse - on my feet the entire shift - and get a new pair once a year. I am also 50+ yrs old and these shoes keep me going. Excellent support - worth every penny. Highly recommend.

    I am coming off a long recover to a major hip surgery. I am a triathlete gone injured. After 7 months of doing not much at all I was given the Ok to start trying to run. I typically buy the Nimbus, but the Kayano had a little more cushion and were the same price on sale so I upgraded. I have a similar pair of Nimbus, they lace on an angle up the bridge of the foot. The first couple times I wore them I thought they would rub, it definately took some getting used to. I didn't realize that this pair was the same way until I went to look. I actually prefer it now, it seems to lock the shoe on better. These shoes have helped get me back on the road to recovery, in fact I ran 10 minutes without stopping yesterday at a pretty good clip....I'm still walking. The cushioning has been just what I needed! Definately worth checking out if you need that extra support and cushioning!

    This is by far the most comfortable style running shoe I have ever owned. I bought these last summer while training for the Susan G 60 mile walk and was very pleased with their performance. They survived training and the walk itself and are still in great shape. I only bought another pair because my walking pair is purposely a 1/2 size too big (my feet swell when I walk long miles) and I needed a true size pair for normal use. Great stability shoe!

    I usually wear Nike's, but lately I have been having a lot of ankle pain when I exercise. This is my first pair of Asics and I'm hooked. When I put them on they fit like a glove and provided a lot of support and stability for my weak ankles.

    I have a lot of foot problems so I have to have a good gym shoe to walk in & I love this shoe. It is very comfortable & supportive. The only issue I have with it is the mesh part isn't very strong so they wear out faster than other shoes. I wish there was a stronger material under the mesh so they would last longer, but I still love them.
