You know a shoe has cemented itself as a runner’s favorite when it’s turning 20 this year and shows no signs of slowing down. In fact, with its mix of support and cushioning the Asics Gel Kayano 20 might be the best yet. It’s your classic stability shoe and an over pronator’s dream with its superior underfoot cushioning and dynamic DuoMax support system that reduces over pronation by controlling the movement of the foot, leading to a smoother heel to toe transition.
The updates make for an improved fit and feel, while maintaining everything you’ve come to know and love about the Kayano. The biggest update to this shoe comes in the addition of the FluidRide midsole compound that gives it that super soft feel that you’ve come to expect from Asics. You can expect a very cushioned impact at the heel and because of the new FluiFit upper, you’ll feel as comfortable as ever.
It weighs in at 11.3 oz so it’s not the lightest shoe on the market, but it will provide you plenty of protection and cushioning as you crank up your mileage.
