1/2 size up!

By David

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.

Comments about Mens ASICS GEL-Kayano 22 Running Shoe:

While I have only had a few training runs these shoes meet the same quality as the last two pair. So far so good. The gel Kayono 22 feel a little lighter than the last two pair. which is a good thing. I am a heavier runner with a normal arch and no pronation problems. So, a great shoe for me.

Kayanos much narrower than they used to be ...

Comments about Mens ASICS GEL-Kayano 22 Running Shoe:

Just not as good as the 21s. Had to go up a size to get the width, which means they no longer fit like a glove.

Comments about Mens ASICS GEL-Kayano 22 Running Shoe:

I've been Asics for over 20 years. I love them. I once bought a pair, ran in them one time before running a half marathon in them. They weren't even broken in yet and I had no problems. My last few pair have been the Kayano. I bought last year's model and got about 40% off! Asics are my go to running shoes.

    Comments about Mens ASICS GEL-Kayano 22 Running Shoe:

    This shoe is not up to Asics normal high quality. After 150 miles, the heals were worn well into the foam core. My Asics GT series that I have been running with for decades never had this problem. I run five mile per day, six days per week and alternate pairs. Both pairs of Kayano 22 were unusable after 150 miles. Asics GT 2170 normally lasted me daily 350 miles. Very disappointed in this shoe.

    Comments about Mens ASICS GEL-Kayano 22 Running Shoe:

    These Asics Gel-Kayano are the worst shoes I have run in during the past 25 years. I have two pairs that I alternate every day. I run five miles per day on blacktopped roads, 30 miles per week. At 150 miles these shoes were so broken down and the soles so worn out that I have throw these shoes in the trash.b. The heels on both shoes, both pairs are worn well into the foam core. The hard outer sole is gone. I normally have run in the Asics GT series and they routinely last 350 miles at the end of 350 miles they still look great (just the cushioning is gone) I am going back to the GT series. I would really be happy if Asics would bring back the GT 2170 shoe. They were great!

    Comments about Mens ASICS GEL-Kayano 22 Running Shoe:

    I always buy Kayanos in a 9 1/2D. I am on my feet all day (hospital). After the first day in these shoes, my feet ached from the snug toe box. Exchanged them for a 10D. The fit is much better now with no aching. They seem much stiffer than the 20 and 21, though. That "fluid" feel is just not there with this model. Anyone buying this shoe, should consider going up an additional 1/2 size (1 full size from "normal" shoe).

    Have run 101 marathons in total but i'm 72 now and my legs have taken a beating.Last pair of shoes were GT 1000's.Got 528 miles out of them but legs were getting pounded at the end.Have run half the month in new Kayano 22's and they are very well cushioned,very stable and the traction is ok in the snow.On my normal 10 mile run legs are noticeably fresher at the end and legs don't feel dead all the rest of the day.Have had several Kayano models and always get 700-800 miles out of them.Expensive but well worth the $.
