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:

    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 $.

    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.

    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.
