Great Shoe, Great Service,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: ASICS Women's GEL-Kayano 17 Running Shoe (Apparel)
I've been running in Kayanos for a couple years now, having switched models from the Asics GT 2100 series. The asymmetrical lacing pattern is a comfortable design, and the model offers the correction I need for my overpronation. This time around, I was unsure I'd stick with Asics Kayanos because I never really felt great about my Kayano 16s for some reason. But, I've had more positive experiences than not, so I purchased the 17s from Road Runner Sports. The shoes arrived sooner than I anticipated, which pleased me. And the shoes feel like running with wings on my feet. Pretty awesome. Great cushioning, great colors, and sturdy build. All within 11oz. Road Runner Sports even made a follow-up phone call to me, to assess my satisfaction. This was an entirely positive purchasing experience.

Hi, were these true to size for you? Also, I'm confused on the sizes they offer. I think they are trying to show sizes from other countries and can't figure out which size is the USA size. I need an 8.5. I was hoping maybe you could help. :0)

This is probably too late for you, but I own these in a US 8 (European 39.5). I usually wear US 7s in dress shoes (European 38s), so had to go up a full size for these to fit comfortably. This is true of all Asics, for me.

I just wonder if anyone else has noticed that Amazon has included a bunch of old reviews for the gel kayano 17 (the most recent gel kayano is the 21) in the reviews for this newly released gel nimbus 17. Not helpful at all since they are completely different shoes. I tried emailing them about it to no avail.
