Product Description:

Men's ASICS® GEL-KAYANO® 23 :: Your favorite shoe is back from the shop and all revved up, making this year's Men's ASICS® GEL-Kayano® 23 easily the best ever. To start, maximize your cushioning while keeping it light with the new FLYTEFOAM™ Midsole reinforced with organic fibers for lighter weight. Next, lock down your heel, improve all-over fit, and enjoy springier toe-offs all thanks to the new last. Plus, feel cushioned like never before with forward-thinking Convergence GEL® Cushioning Technology that places your GEL® cushion at an angle for seriously smooth landings as you glide forward. Take your running to a whole new level with 23 years of running science packed into this support powerhouse.

Features & Benefits:

  • Dynamic DuoMax® Support System: Midsole system positioned at an angle to support and engage the foot only when required
  • Improved fit holds the entire foot better while providing superior toe spring
  • New Convergence GEL® Technology: GEL® cushioning placed closer to the foot to replicate the comfort of your foot's natural tissue, increasing function and shock dissipation
  • FlyteFoam™ Midsole Technology: 55 percent lighter than the industry standard with organic fibers that bounce your shoe back to its original shape in the space of each stride to provide perfect cushioning from the start of your run to the finish
  • Impact Guidance System®: ASICS design philosophy that employs linked componentry to enhance the foot's natural gait from heel strike to toe-off
  • FluidFit®: Combines multi-directional stretch mesh with stretch reinforcements that adapts to the athlete's foot, creating a truly customized glove-like fit
  • FluidRide®: Provides the ultimate combination of bounce back and cushioning properties with reduced weight and exceptional durability

I have bought this model shoe for many years (size 10). This version (23) was way to small in both length and width. I have to unfortunately return them. A hassle I did not want.

So far, very pleased. I run about 5 miles 3 times a week on pavement. These shoes are very comfortable and give a lot of support. Too early to say how durable they are, but I liked them so much I bought another pair.

By Kyle

Comments about Mens ASICS GEL-Kayano 23 Running Shoe:

Shoe is too tight. Even going up a half size did not help. After first week of running, both ankles are sore and top of foot hurts. The new material that asics has chose to go with the past couple series is very disappointing! This series used to be my go to! Going back to GT series.

Still better than the 24

By Jason

Comments about Mens ASICS GEL-Kayano 23 Running Shoe:

Awesome shoe. Worn Kayanos since the 16. The 24 sucks. Went back and bought the 23s again on sale. Skip the 24. Lowered back around ankle is really bad. They need to return to 23 style.

Shoes too narrow

Comments about Mens ASICS GEL-Kayano 23 Running Shoe:

Returned the shoes. Too narrow, My feet feel compressed, and I think this will lead to orthopedic problems in the future.

Tight ...

By Joseph

from undisclosed

Verified Buyer

Comments about Mens ASICS GEL-Kayano 23 Running Shoe:

As many have said, the toe box is way too small and not comfortable upon first time shoe is worn; will even be a problem for some with 1/2 size increase. You can go a full size bigger but now starting to impact the way the rest of the show fits. If you find the toe box only slightly tight, it will loosen up a bit after putting some mileage on the shoe if you are patient and aren't doing some damage to the outside of your small toe.

I keep buying them decade after decade.

By Rex

Comments about Mens ASICS GEL-Kayano 23 Running Shoe:

I have been running, or trying to, since there was only a Kayano. Not a 23 or a 24.

I am now 70 and plan to be buried in a Kayano 69.

Road Runner is consistently the best with advice, service, and all around gitty-up.

Comments about Mens ASICS GEL-Kayano 23 Running Shoe:

This is a good update that fixed a few of the previous problems with rubbing and blisters. Seems like they softened things up and returned the shoe back to the nice soft ride that I have come to expect from the Kayano.

Good shoe

By Wayne

Comments about Mens ASICS GEL-Kayano 23 Running Shoe:

Overall, a good shoe, based on about a dozen runs. However, I was surprised that it's cushioning wasn't a bit more noticeable given its website description. If I hadn't gotten it on a good sale, I would have thought it was not worth the price compared to other Asics options like Cumulus.
