I am 60 yrs old and have been working in a hospital as a respiratory therapists for 35 years which has taken quite a toll on my feet and back. I've clocked my mileage and I average about 6 miles a day and 26 flights of stairs, up only. These Asics Kyano are like walking on clouds!Best shoe I ever worked in and walked in.! My feet feel the love all day! They stay strong for almost a year! This is my 3rd pair. I hope I can buy them for the rest of my life. Great Sneakers!!!! And Road Runner sports is a great company to buy them from! Great Deals!

Comments about Womens ASICS GEL-Kayano 22 Running Shoe:

I love this running shoe. The shoes cradle your feet, are light weight feel great even after working a 12 hour shift in the emergency department. They wear very well and show very little wear and tear. The extra room in the toe box with the wider width ensures that at the end of the day my feet are as comfortable as they were when I first put them on.

Not the same as the 21. The toe box is narrower and harder. Kept rubbing on my big toe. I knew as soon as I put them on they were not going to work. We sent them back. Will go back to the 21s.

    Comments about Womens ASICS GEL-Kayano 22 Running Shoe:

    I have been running in Gel Kayano for about 15 years but they narrowed the toe box about 1/4" in the 22 and it is now too small for my foot. I've ordered the size 5 in this shoe for years, but the Gel Kayano 22 shoe makes my toe hurt on downhills because they narrowed the toe box. Overall, it was uncomfortable from the start, with less room, but I gave them a try thinking maybe I didn't loosen the laces up enough. I have bunions and this was about the only shoe, including other ASICS shoes, that worked for me. Not anymore. Extremely disappointed in the modifications in size, as well as the material. I actually measured the 19 v. the 22 and found about 1/4" more narrow in the toe box from the base of the first lace all the way up to the toe. It also does not feel as cushioned. Every once in a while they make a stupid change to the shoe (like the offset laces, or more criss cross decorative pattern that goes over my bunion), but they usually recover and go back to the normal. I don't know about this time. Fortunately, I have one more pair of the 19's (I buy a couple pair at a time) to get me through finding another manufacturer, like Saucony or NB who still have wider toe boxes. I'm afraid to order a different Asics model for fear all of them have reduced toe boxes. I have to have a shoe that does not have a support strap crossing (or decorative material) over the bunion, and enough room to make my crooked toe comfortable. Sorry Asics, my love affair with you has come to a sad end, and both pair of 22's are going back. I hope this wasn't a cost savings measure, but it probably was.

    Comments about Womens ASICS GEL-Kayano 22 Running Shoe:

    I was a faithful ASICS Nimbus/Kayano wearer for over 8 years. The Nimbus 17 was way too cushy and sloppy feeling, left me with hip and back pain. The new sock-like fabric doesn't lend much support and the model is much narrower than before, so I thought I just needed more stability and tried this OLDER Kayano. ASICS had already switched to the sock fabric for this model - still too narrow. The same size I've been wearing for years is now too long and too narrow. Felt a rubbing on the top of my big toe and the side of my pinky toe immediately. These are going back.. sadly, 2 weeks before a marathon, I'm in search of new shoes! Not good for me.

    If you're new to ASICS, these are a great cushioned shoe with moderate stability. (I think the new fabric makes it less stable on the foot.) Narrow feet will be happy, Super comfy if you can find a good fit.

    Fantastic service & ONE DAY delivery for me! Matt at the Campbell store was amazing!

    Not cheating on these anymore

    By Hyerim

    Comments about Womens ASICS GEL-Kayano 22 Running Shoe:

    I switched over to Nike zooms for a while and then came back to my trusted kayanos. When I started running in these after again, I wondered why I ever left them. These corrected my running for so long that I noticed outer calf soreness when I stepped into other running sneakers. The 22 does seem to run narrow though. I never order a wife but took advice from a previous post and ordered these in a wide and they fit beautifully. I'll always purchase a previous year's model since the price is hefty for a new pair. I was so tempted to get he 23 but these worked out perfectly! I'm never cheating again!

    After years of loving Gel Cumulus shoes, I switched over to the Kayano for stability support. It took a few tries to get the size and width right, but I love the shoes!!! I went from size 10 in cumulus to 9 1/2 in these shoes, and from narrow width in cumulus to medium width in Kayano.

    I wear a size 11 narrow in most non-running shoes. I ordered a size 11 medium in these and they fit great. I personally like that they run a little narrow. Very comfortable but I wish there was a little more cushion. I think that about most brands though! I would order these all over again and am happy with my purchase. Great colors, too!

    Great cushioning for Plantar Fascitis

    By ann

    from undisclosed

    Verified Buyer

    Comments about Womens ASICS GEL-Kayano 22 Running Shoe:

    I ordered this shoe after having a bout of plantar fascitis in one foot and wearing orthotics for both feet to unload my painful metatarsal heads. By following the advise of many reviewers I ordered a 1/2 size bigger and a wide instead of my normal medium. They fit very well, allowing space for my forefoot and wonderful cushioning for the whole foot. I had purchased the GT-2000 earlier this year and like that as well, but the Kayano does have more gel, and for that reason is more comfortable for me.

      Recommended running shoe

      By karen

      Verified Buyer

      Comments about Womens ASICS GEL-Kayano 22 Running Shoe:

      I run approximately 24 miles a week. Two days of seven miles and one of 10 miles. This shoe became only shoe I will run in about 7 years ago. It has the most cushion and stability that I need. Starting last year however, the shoe required a break-in period which took about 6-7 runs. It was comfortable for the first 5 ish miles, then hurt the ball of my feet for the remainder of the run. After that, they did break in and were fantastic until I needed new shoes again.

      I decided to try the same shoe again just recently. I am experiencing the same break-in. But, it is not as severe and more comfortable than last years' model. Even though I am perplexed by having to break-in the shoe, I am satisfied and will continue to use only the Asics Gel-Kayono for running.

      I purchased these reluctantly and in a half-size larger than I usually do due to the much-narrower the toebox in this model. Much to my surprise, going up half a size took care of the toebox issue and I am really loving the cushioning and midfoot support (I have yet to find another shoe that hugs the midfoot area as well as the kayano).
