I do believe I will buy insoles however, as I would with any shoe purchase for that extra added comfort.
The 18, however, has given me blisters for the first time ever as a runner. You can hate me, but I am one of those people who never gets blisters or black toe nails. I should have known something was suspicious because I could tell the shoe fit differently as soon as I put it on. At the time, I thought I was just being sensitive and overreacting.
After several months of low mileage running (nothing over 8 miles), the shoe is tolerable. Hmmm... I never had to "break in" my previous versions of this shoe. With this shoe, I clearly did. Yet, it is still a mediocre fit compared to my previous versions. Don't get me wrong, it is not a bad shoe. However, if you are a previous owner of earlier versions, do NOT purchase the Kayano 18. I wish I had read the reviews before purchasing as other people have similar thoughts. Lesson learned for me. I hope there is still a pair of 17s in my size.
Excellent support/comfortable for high-arched feet!
Affordable compared to other running shoes
Extra gel for less stress on the joints
I have done a lot of research in choosing the best running/active shoe.I am a Spinning and Group exercise instructor. I teach/attend fitness classes 4-5 days a week and have run 4 half-marathons. I have not always been this active, but I must say the type of shoe I have bought makes or breaks my workout. Several years ago, I used to buy cheap exercise shoes with no support out of ignorance. I began having piercing pain in the balls of my feet. Due to having extremely high arches and bad tennis shoes, I fractured the bones in both of my feet (Sesamoid fracture of the foot)!! Since I began wearing Asics Kayano shoes, I have had no foot problems, even after all the harsh training I have put them through. By choosing better quality shoes, I am more motivated to workout knowing that I won't suffer another foot injury and endure foot and joint pain.
Uses of this Shoe - If you want the best running shoe- go with Asics Kayano. I have trained and run 4 half-marathons in the Women's Kayano Running shoe and wouldn't have worn anything different. I chose Kayano because I have a high arch and the Kayano provides extra gel and arch support. If you have feet issues, you may need insoles for these shoes if you plan to be very active or train for races. I chose the powerstep insoles and they compliment the Asics shoes very well. I never run/walk without these shoes! Even if you are not an avid runner, these shoes are great for an active lifestyle. If you chose a poor shoe, you may suffer back, knee, and foot problems later.Read more ›
