Would not buy Gel Kayano 23

By Howard

from undisclosed

Verified Buyer

Comments about Mens ASICS GEL-Kayano 23 Running Shoe:

The fit is not as good as the Kayano 22 I could tell immediately when I put them on. The width does not feel as wide and the toe box area is not as roomy. I order 1/2 size larger as recommended and in a 4E width. The sides of the shoe are bulging from my feet. The top of my toes are rubbing the top of the shoe.
I have been buying the Gel Kayano for a number of years without any issues with the fit. Unfortunately I would not consider the Kayano 23 as an improvement in the fit.

I have been wearing the Kayano brand for years and this is the worst model. It is way too narrow in the toe box and nowhere on the description do they explain it to the consumer.

Comments about Mens ASICS GEL-Kayano 23 Running Shoe:

Previous Kayanos were an ideal fit for me. Since the 22, the toe box has shrunk. Even with a half size larger, there's too much friction on the toes. Here's hoping Asics studies consumer reviews when updating their designs.

Comments about Mens ASICS GEL-Kayano 23 Running Shoe:

My son loved his GEL-Kayano 22s, so it seemed like a no brainer to get the 23s. We were wrong. They've changed them. There's less cushion and they seem more narrow in the toe. He says his old, worn out shoes are more comfortable than the new shoes. The 23s are going back.

Expensive but worth it??

By William

from undisclosed

Verified Buyer

Comments about Mens ASICS GEL-Kayano 23 Running Shoe:

This is my second pair of 23's. Ran 7 miles right out of the box with zero issues. I still think the toe box is a little tighter than the 22's but I don't experience any issues because of it. I have been running Kayano's since the 17's and these might be the best of them all. I have tried other brands of shoes (Nike & Brooks) but I have never been satisfied with them. These are no doubt expensive but worth it for me. I always wait until I get get them for 20-30% of the retail price. I run an average of 25 miles per week and I have had all the typical "overuse" running injuries over the years. Kayano's just seem to be more injury friendly than other shoes I have run.

A little smaller than previous Kayanos

By Keith

from undisclosed

Verified Buyer

Comments about Mens ASICS GEL-Kayano 23 Running Shoe:

I've been wearing Kayanos for about 15 years and they have always fit great. Unfortunately the 23 seems to be a little smaller and tighter. I like the feel and cushioning, but the toe box is tighter than any of my other ones. Here's hoping they get it better on the 23, these are definitely not as comfortable as my 21 or 22s.

I use these shoes mainly for work. I am a massage therapist and stand 6-7 hours per day. With these shoes I no longer have constant foot pain. Hopefully I will be back to running soon. I did have to order 1/2 size larger for proper fit.
