      I have been wearing Kayanos for many many years and have loved them until now.
      The first time I wore these my feet were so damaged they hurt for a week. Kayano
      fit has always been terrific until now the 22's are narrower and smaller this fit no longer
      works for me.

      Not a good fit for me. I bought them about 4 months ago and have been "breaking them in" for about 2 months however they still cause my feet to feel like they are falling asleep. It is a very strange sensation and uncomfortable to run. I will stick with the Brooks Ghost.

      Comments about Womens ASICS GEL-Kayano 22 Running Shoe:

      toe box is too narrow. asics really made a bad choice when changing the model of the kayano, which I've worn for 15 years. asics didn't listen to their customers and return to the previous model's design. Bad choice, as they're going to lose customers.

      Very disappointed with this shoe. Have tried them out for 2 weeks now to see if they got better, but they have not. Toe Box is too narrow and running in them is like running in a shoe with a wooden sole. Never had this problem with previous versions of the Gel Kayano. Will not buy afain.

          I have been a huge fan of Gel Kayano, however the newer versions(22,23) are very similar to Nike shoes and now I'm developing shin splints again. Sadly, I can no longer purchase the older version shoes that actually support my feet. Bad move Ascics.

          Comments about Womens ASICS GEL-Kayano 22 Running Shoe:

          My physical therapist recommended these shoes after a knee scope. They provide great stability for my overpronation. Unfortunately, they are a little tight for me so I will probably have to send back and exchange for a wide width shoe.

          Comments about Womens ASICS GEL-Kayano 22 Running Shoe:

          Decades of running long distance. Overpronator, midfoot stride, using orthotics. This shoe works really well for me. I've run exclusively in Kayanos for years. Had every model through 18-23. This one is great, like the others. I have an extremely narrow, slender foot, and find that I have to lace it up super tight to get the right fit. I also do a special tie at the top with the laces to get that extra grip which prevents any slippage in the heel, which can aggravate my chronic achilles injury. If you have a more normal foot, this shoe should fit just fine. I have tried ordering the Narrow, but it didn't work out, so I just run in the Normal width and it works great.
          Lightweight runner, but I find these shoes still work best for me if replaced before 400 miles. They don't show barely ANY wear at that point, I just know they're done, and they get transferred on to other use as walking and chore shoes for a couple of more years :)
          Love my Kayanos!
          The laces last forever, with a double knot NEVER come undone, and I like the plushness of the tongue. Breathable, flexible, but horrid shocking colors... All shoes look like clown colored shows now, so you can't really put that against Kayanos...

          Comments about Womens ASICS GEL-Kayano 22 Running Shoe:

          Didn't love these ones, found they were too tight around the ball of my foot. Short runs were no problem, but anything over 5-6 miles hurt my feet a lot. Ran a half marathon in them and was hurting the last 6 miles! Cushioning was good, they're a great sneaker, just not right for me.
