Treat yourself.

You've had a spring race on your mind for a while now, and the clock's ticking towards the start of your training cycle. Start this marathon season off with fresh cushioning and high-mileage support with the Asics Men's Gel-Kayano 23 Lite-Show Running Shoe on your feet. Each fall, Asics puts high-vis graphics atop its running shoes to help pavement-pounders stand out as they start their spring training plans in the dark days of winter. Whether you're a Kayano veteran or are making the switch from another shoe, you'll be logging your miles with plush cushioning and stability in this V8 luxury sedan of a trainer.

Unlike the heavy overlays and abundance of stitching of older Asics shoes, the FluidFeel uppers that grace the Kayano are light and adaptable, forgiving to lumps and bumps while working best for V-shaped feet. Strategically placed mesh accents add breathable forefoot support and work towards achieving a sock-like fit. Underneath your foot, Asics trusts its classic gel cushioning pods paired with FlyteFoam to blend cushy impact absorption with responsive feedback when you need it. Loyal Asics users will know the cushy feeling of the gel pods well, especially as it's what gives Asics shoes a reputation for being high-mileage troopers that soldier on long after their lighter-weight compatriots have fallen.

  • Up your mileage with plushness and support in this trainer
  • Lite-Show colorways enhance visibility on dark winter roads
  • Stretchy uppers adapt to the contours of your feet
  • Gel cushioning pods absorb impact over long runs
  • FlyteFoam lends responsive pop to toe offs

5+ Great Years - Gel-Kayano

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: True to size

The Gel Kayano has been my #1 road shoe for the past 5+ years. The design has changed slightly year-to-year but the fit, smooth ride, and level of comfort has remained consistent. This shoe seems a little pricy upfront, but you'll get 350-450 miles out of each pair. The material breathes in the summer and does a nice job keeping out the elements in rainy and wintry weather, short runs and long. Plenty of room in the toe box, nice and cushy but at the same time responsive. If you require a real support shoe, and want a solid consistent performer, give this shoe a try.

5+ Great Years - Gel-Kayano

Great running shoe for the flat footed

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: True to size

The Kayano have some of the best support I've had in a running shoe. This is vital for me because my pronation is profound. Prior to these shoes I tried a pair of neutral runners. The neutral runners, for me, were like running in mud. After about 5 runs I had some back pain and had to stop running. I picked up the Kayano to add as much support as possible. It really paid off. Running in these shoes are a breeze for me. I put these on and instead of mud I feel like I'm supposed to be running. My only complaint is that I feel the cushion is lacking. I don't expect these to last quite as long as some of the other Asics shoes I've owned. I could be wrong, but I'm skeptical of the longevity of these shoes.

tough runners

I really like the colors on this shoe, but even better than that is the durability. I jog in these quite a bit but also wear them casually and they've been bulletproof. very happy with these shoes.
