Product Description

Enjoy luxurious comfort and improved bounce with the women's GEL-KAYANO 26 running shoe, featuring GEL technology to the forefoot and rear for high-density shock absorption and a comfortable feel over long distances. The EVA sockliner offers excellent rebound and cushioning, while the Guidance TRUSSTIC SYSTEM technology brings a new level of stability, working with the contoured midsole to help control torsion. Meanwhile, the SpEVA 45 lasting improves bounce-back characteristics to put a spring in your step (quite literally).

If your feet tend to roll inwards as you run, fret not. The DUOMAX midsole offers smooth overpronation control by combining two different density materials to reduce the risk of flat feet and bunions. Meanwhile, the AHAR rubber sponge helps to reduce excessive wear for a longer lifespan. This edition of the GEL-KAYANO 26 running shoe showcases a vibrant new design to inspire you to unleash your inner runner, on those days when you might need a little extra motivation, while added reflective details improve your visibility when you're out after-dark.

Pronation UNDERPRONATION (Supination) UNDER, NEUTRAL NEUTRAL OVER, NEUTRAL OVERPRONATION
How Your Foot Contacts the Ground The outer side of the heel hits the ground at an increased angle with little or no normal pronation, causing a large transmission of shock through the lower leg. The foot lands on outside of the heel, then rolls inward (pronates) to absorb shock and support body weight. The foot lands on outside of heel, then rolls inward (pronates) excessively, transferring weight to inner edge instead of ball of the foot.
Push Off The pressure is on smaller toes on outside of foot. There is even distribution from the front of the foot. Big toe and second toe do majority of the work.
Foot Type High arches Normal arches Low arches

5.0 out of 5 stars Consistent good fit and high quality with multiple Gel-Kayanos over the years
By Amazon Customer on September 11, 2019
I have worn Gel-Kayano shoes for many years. My last 2 pairs were 22's. I regularly participate in high impact workouts and find that these shoes provide great support in the heels and balls of my feet. All my Gel-Kayanos have been a size 8M (regular shoe size 7M). This is a great shoe and, in my opinion, worth every penny. I've let friends talk me into buying other, less expensive, shoes over the years and in every case ended up replacing them almost immediately with a new pair of Gel-Kayanos. As I write this review, I have already worn these shoes for several workouts and find that they live up to my expectations. At first I was hesitant to buy a newer model of Gel-Kayano due to some of the reviews about fit and quality. To help provide input into your decision, I buy Softsole performance inserts and replace the inserts that come with the shoes. I am of slender build, in my mid-50s and have exercised in some capacity since I was a child (read many years of pounding on my feet). I have heel spurs, and know when it's time to buy new shoes when the balls of my feet start bothering me. I hope you find this review helpful. I have attached a picture of my last 2 pairs and me wearing the pair I just bought.
UPDATE ADDED OCT 11, 2019:
Have now had these shoes for a month. Have exercised in them 3-5x a week and still love them.

5.0 out of 5 stars The most comfy shoes ever!
By Francesca A. on July 17, 2019
I’ve been wearing ASICS for the last 7 years and these have been one of the most comfy ones I have tried. Cushioning is amazing and they look great.
They’re not as dark as they look in the pictures I took. They’re gorgeous!

Update: I loved them so much that I got a second pair!!!

1.0 out of 5 stars Poor fit, improperly labeled or siZed?
By KGC on August 6, 2019
I have been wearing Gel-Kayano shoes for years, always ordering a size 10. I recently ordered a pair on Amazon. The size says 10 but I had issues from the beginning with it feeling too small if I wore for any period of time. Like an idiot, I thought maybe it was just an adjustment period but it never got better so barely two months later after a reasonable amount of discomfort I ordered a new pair from a different online retailer. Look at the difference in length! Clearly what I got was not a size 10. Not sure if it is a glitch on Asics side or the supplier to Amazon. But very disappointing.

5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect!
Reviewed in Canada on September 26, 2020
Love Asics! These runners are very comfortable and well cushioned with the gel. They are light weight and it doesn't feel like you have runners are, so comphy they feel like slippers and walking on air! They are reflective so you are seen while walking after dark. The ties never undo while out walking. The company was quick at shipping, thank you!
