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've always wondered why people buy pricey athletic shoes. From outward appearances they look deceptively similar. After I bought these I understand why. Not a runner, I bought these because I have nerve damage to my feet, & they were available in a wide width. I also spend a lot of time on concrete floors(school). By the end of any work day I'm in misery. Seriously, this shoe I don't want to take off even when I arrive home. Best investment I've made in a shoe. I may even start running! Oh, and did I mention that I've received so many compliments on these shoes?

    I have been running for 5 years now and refused to believe I needed a stability shoe, even though I had a gait analysis that showed me otherwise. Until this version of the Kayano, stability shoes have never been comfortable on me. I've tried Brooks and other Asics and have been running in the Asics Nimbus for the last 5 years. I'm a pronator and have been suffering from IT band issues all this time. The Kayano 20 is super comfortable and since I've been running with it I haven't had any IT band or piriformis issues. A fabulous shoe! go a size up if your feet tend to swell

    I have very flat feet, and I run frequently. These shoes have the perfect amount of support, and aren't as clunky as other shoes are for flat footed people. I plan on buying these again when the ones I own get worn down.

    I work as a nurse and I work out four times a week and I usually don't wear my work out shoes to work but this week I did and they felt great both after a twelve hour shift and a long work out. I love these shoes. Worth every penny. They feel very light weight but also have great cushion and support.

    So this year I've found a love for running. I started with a great pair of comfortable shoes that I chose mainly for that - comfort. I should have chosen a pair specifically for my overpronation, but I knew nothing about all that until the pain set in. Over the course of a month I added on too many miles and as a result, injured my knees to where I was devastated because I could hardly walk up and down stairs anymore. Enter the kayanos.
    I went to a running store, found out all about the way I run, and was ultimately torn between this at the GT-2000 2. I chose these in the end, because of comfort purposes. They are brilliant. They are extremely padded, and yet I feel like I can still feel the ground. I put them on, went for a 2 miler expecting disappointment and instead came back with that runner's high I've missed so much since hurting myself.
    They are as most everybody says they are. Reliable. Comfortable. Stable. Pricey, for sure, but worth the investment. My knees think so anyway.

    Cheers!

    I have been using Kayano serie, but Kayano 20 is the best, comfort, wide, and stability. I used them for 25 Km last Sunday and I felt like I was running over the clouds

    I'm a mild/moderate over-pronator with tight calves/achilles tendons and possibly some plantar fasciitis going on. Before these shoes, the bottom of my feet would start to ache and my ankles would hurt after just a few minutes of running, often causing me to stop. No amount of stretching, different running shoes, or orthotic inserts seemed to make a difference. I was previously wearing the ASICS gt-2170's, which I thought were just OK. I never thought I would go and buy even more expensive running shoes, but I'm glad I did with these Kayanos. They are supportive like the gt-2170's, but they feel much much more cushioned, plush, and lightweight. They give me a bounce in my step when I run, and my feet feel so much better! I wear an 8.5 medium, and these fit exactly as I expected. Great shoes!

    I am not really a runner, but I do run as much as I can (usually around 8-10 miles per week whenever it is nice outside). I go through running shoes more often than I really should because I am incredibly hard on them. Therefore, instead of my shoes lasting 300-500 miles, they last about 200-300 miles.

    I've also broken my feet many, many times, so the "best" shoe for my feet keeps changing. I used to wear New Balances, then Brooks, and now Asics. I am now on my third pair of Asics, and have found THE. PERFECT. SHOE. in the Asics Gel-Kayano 20. It is PERFECT.

    The Gel-Kayano 20 has FluidFit(tm), which is made of a multi-directional stretch mesh that fits to the foot like a glove. Its mid-sole padding- FluidRide-(tm) provides cushioning and "bounce-back" to make the shoe both efficient AND comfortable..

    The Gel-Kayano 20 is VERY supportive, but is also well-cushioned, with gender-specific cushioning, including a 3mm extension of padding to relieve Achilles' tendon tension, and mid-sole compression.

    The best thing about this shoe is its weight-- it weighs only 9 ounces, which is heavier than some shoes (my other Asics shoe weighs only 8 ounces), but is lighter than most running shoes.(one of my Brooks shoes weighs 11 ounces).

    These shoes are comfortable, fit my feet like a glove, are pretty, and are safe for my fragile feet. What else could I ask for?
