1/2 size up!

By David

Verified Buyer

Comments about Mens ASICS GEL-Kayano 22 Running Shoe:

I like 'em. Have been running in the Kayanos for years and ordered the new 22s with some trepidation, but following the advice (and a try-on at local running store) of other reviews, ordered a 1/2 size up and love them. Yes, the toe box is smaller, but the up-size worked great for me.

Softer than previous models. I wish insoles were better

By Richard

from undisclosed

Verified Buyer

Comments about Mens ASICS GEL-Kayano 22 Running Shoe:

A lot softer than previous models. It seems almost squishy. I have been buying Kayanos for many years. I end up replacing the insoles to get better support with insoles which are 1/3 of the price of the shoe. With the premium price paid for the Kayano series, I wish they would do a better job with the insole.

By Harold

Verified Buyer

Comments about Mens ASICS GEL-Kayano 22 Running Shoe:

I've bought the Kayano line for years; always a great shoe. Kayano was recommended to me because it offered the proper support I needed as I tended to walk on inside of foot instead of flat foot. Roadrunner, excellent delivery service. Received order the day after I ordered it (OH to TN). Maybe the quick shipping was part of the shipping club I purchased for like $2 bucks. I couldn't beat the price paid on shoes anywhere else.

Not as happy with these as with the Gel-Kayano 21.

By Steven

from undisclosed

Verified Buyer

Comments about Mens ASICS GEL-Kayano 22 Running Shoe:

Good fit and cushioning for a Gel-Kayano. The 22 seems to lack some of the lateral support of the 21. Okay so far and need to wait and see how they hold up compared to the 21. I liked the 21 right out of the box.

      I've worn the Nimbus for years and wanted to try the Kayano - should have stuck with the former. I ordered my normal size - too narrow and too short. I tried going up a half size -- still too narrow.

        I have been running in Kayano's for 20+ years and the 22's are a rea; disappointment! I remember then doing the same back in the 9-10 version so I guess they did not learn from that mistake. They really minimized the tow box to the point I have to tape up my toes....

            I have been running in Kayano's for 30 years and they really messed this one up! I can remember them doing something similar back in the Kayano 10 range. The shoe box has been made smaller and the construction cheaper. I hope they go back to the 17-21 design as this one is a bad one!

            Comments about Mens ASICS GEL-Kayano 22 Running Shoe:

            I love Asics Kayanos! I have run 30+ miles a week in them for over 20 years. The only reason I am not rating the Kayano 22 a 5 Star is because of the sizing. With every previous model, I ordered my size 13, step into them and I was off running, never having an issue or need to wear the shoe in. This all changed with the 22. The toe-box is significantly smaller than previous models and the only way I was able to stay with the Kayano was to go to a size 13 1/2 (odd that this 1/2 size did not appear until the model 22).
