Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: ASICS Men's Gel Kayano 20 Running Shoe (Shoes)
I am 220, 5'10" and i was having some bad back pain when running. Just got these shoes yesterday and ran 3 miles and had no back, foot, or shin pain. For the first time it actually felt good to run a 5k. Very pleased with my purchase.
I am new to running long distances and purchased these shoes because I am starting to run distances longer then a mile. I found out about the Gel Kayano 20 by simply searching "good running shoe" and these were ranked towards the top in most articles i found. I then went to Playmakers, a local athletic store, and they sized me up. The employee at Playmakers told me i needed a shoe that would be a low stability to stability shoe, 10.5 medium. I was torn between the Kayano 20 or GT2000. They did not have my size in stock or the style i wanted, so i ordered these from amazon. According to the employee at playmakers i do not have any pronation issues and overall seem to be pretty lined up. Again i am very pleased with this shoe and Asics gained a new customer.
