Run Longer in the GEL-Kayano 22
The revolutionized Kayano 22 sets our own personal benchmark even higher than last year's design, as it comes equipped with our new version of FluidRide, opting for 20% more bounceback even though it gets 15% lighter. Our legendary GEL-Cushioning provides ultimate shock absorption, and is linked with our Impact Guidance System to join the entire shoe’s componentry together to enhance the foot’s natural gait. The final details are incorporated into the upper with the virtually seamless construction that provides optimal support and stability without any unnecessary stitching or two-piece construction.
Benefits of the GEL-Kayano 22:
- Perfect distance shoe for mild/moderate overpronators
- Excellent impact protection for long runs
- Intense stability and support.
Tech: What's Inside the GEL-Kayano 22 Running Shoe?
Rearfoot and Forefoot GEL Cushioning:
ASICS GEL-Cushioning provides the ultimate in shock absorption - easing the blow of every step upon impact.
Impact Guidance System (I.G.S.):
Links the Guidance Line and Trustic System componentry to enhance the natural gait from heel strike to toe-off, providing a truer and stable path.
The ability to bounce back within a shoe is important, but also being able to provide cushioning with reduced weight and exceptional durability is even better.
ASICS: History and Heritage
After the second world war, ASICS founder Kihachiro Onitsuka observed children wandering the streets barefoot, and decided to help the youth of his country. By promoting the values of Sport, and providing them with high quality athletic shoes to help them perform their best, he believed he could help the children of Japan build a better future with the philosophy of Anima Sana In Corpore Sano: “A Sound Mind in a Sound Body.” In 1949, Onitsuka Co. was born, and soon after, the first ever footwear was released from the fledgling brand: a basketball shoe called the “Tiger.” In the years that followed, Onitsuka Co. (re-named “ASICS” in 1977) designed a myriad of scientifically sound, sport-specific shoes for athletes. Mr. Onitsuka’s emphasis on the spirit of Sport and a focus on the needs of the athlete continue today with ASICS, Onitsuka Tiger, And ASICS Tiger shoes, clothing, and accessories. Our dedication to never stop bettering our best reflects our desire to help you, the athlete, to always Better Your Best.
True to its heritage, the new gel-kayano 22 takes a bold step forward in unsurpassed performance and modern design. The sleek new fluid fit upper is built with seamless construction and a re-engineered heel clutching system for a more secure and adaptive fit. Mild to moderate over pronators will be treated to the luxuriously plush comfort of the new comfordry lasting and comfordry x-40 sockliner sitting atop the stable fluid ride platform.
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.

Well I am very pleased with my purchase so I hope to get plenty of miles out of these shoes.
Note: This is my second pair of this type of sneaker. My first pair was purchased on ASICS website. When I attempted to make a second purchase, they did not have my size available for this sneaker (bad for business). My size was available in other styles, but it was very limited, and the options were not to my taste. I searched long to find the perfect running shoe for my feet, and was very happy to find this sneaker. But I was sad to see that my size wasn't available anymore. It's a good thing I was able to find it here on Amazon (thanks to this Seller). I hope ASICS doesn't disregard the needs of customers like me.
Make sure you go up 0.5 to 1 size larger than you normally would and even if you order Kayano's each year, you might consider going up even another 0.5 from your normal Kayano size. This model doesn't leave a ton of room in the front for toes to spread out. They fit me fine with my usual 10.5 (I wear a 9.5-10 in all other shoes), but I don't have wide toes. Excellent shoes though.
