1/2 size up!

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.

        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).

                I have worn Kayanos for years - always happy with the fit. These are great shoes. My last buy was Kayano 20 (I buy 3-4 at a time when they are on sale). I just bought the Kayano 22 and they have significantly reduced toebox size. I refuse to buy wide sizes because of heel slip and am now headed to the running store to try on alternate brands. I am outraged that Asics changed the fit and even more outraged that they did not inform me through the Roadrunner shoe description. Sorry Roadrunner, the next few pair will come from the local running store where I can try them on. I may or may not be back.

                    Hmmm, I have a pretty average pair of size10 1/2 feet...this version suffers from a too narrow /too snug fit and somewhat less room in the toebox than I am used to getting from my asics shoes. The gel 2000 v3 and v4 suffer from a similar problem, even if I size up a full size. Maybe asics will solve this fit problem with the next version due out in September.
