The gel-kayano 23 shoe features our revolutionary flytefoam technology for the optimal balance of lightweight cushioning comfort for a luxurious ride. The fluid fit upper leverages seamless stretch mesh reinforcements to increase forefoot support, while adapting to the foot's natural motion to create a custom sock-like fit. Our forefoot and Rearfoot gel cushioning systems absorb shock upon impact to equip overpronators with a smooth and effortless transition between heel strike and toe-off phases.
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.

Today I wore the 23s for the first time on my training run and was so disappointed. I have always gone from shoe to show without difficulty, but today's run was outright painful to both my feet and knees. I did notice that these shoes felt different on my feet from the beginning, but as my run continued, each step was met with pain in my toes, balls of my feet, and knees.
I am not sure what exactly has changed about the shoe to go from no problems to having my most painful run ever, but I was honestly heartbroken. I now feel like I am out $160 on a pair of shoes from a brand that I love with concerns over what shoes I will be wearing for my marathon in November.
I purchased these Asics Gel Kayano running shoes to have a comfortable shoe to wear to work, to eliminate foot pain on my longer work days and to have a shoe to start training for my half marathon this upcoming summer. The goal was to find a shoe that could take on a lot of miles and one that could be reliable.
User and Purpose
The ideal user for this product is likely young women or adults who enjoy running, short or long distances. Someone who runs a lot of miles or has foot pain would benefit greatly from this well-designed product.
The criteria that can be used to successfully evaluate these shoes are:
A positive feature of this shoe is its incredible comfort. This shoe has a shock reflex during impact and toe-off phases, which allows movement in multiple directions. Its comforting system, made from Speva Foam, is a long lasting material for a soft platform feel and improved comfort and durability.
There are several other pros that can benefit you by purchasing this shoe; the biggest one is its durability. This shoe allows you to run many many miles, while still staying in the good shape. In terms of price, this shoe is on the pricier side, but will last you longer than any other shoe out on the market.
The most innovative feature of this shoe is its overall fit and use of technology. First, Asics fluid fit upper technology combines multi-directional stretch mesh with stretch reinforcements that adapt to the athlete's foot, creating a truly customized glove-like feel. Another technology advantage is the shoes 3mm of additional height on women's models, which helps your feet feel great while working out.
If you need a shoe to use daily, the Asics Gel Kayano will impress. With it being a recommended shoe by many doctors, you must get a pair! This shoe has been nothing but great for running and all of the features advertised are true. This is definitely a shoe that everyone should give a try. Good luck running!
