Thank you for your feedback.
But that would be a huge difference and you would be sliding in the shoe vs. feeling a nice snug fit, or perfect fit.
They have all fit perfectly, and felt good almost from day one, and the Gel-Kayano 21 is no exception.
I can't speak to the durability except that I have my Kayano 20's about a year and they are wearing pretty well.

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.
