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

Comments about Mens ASICS GEL-Kayano 23 Running Shoe:

i read the comments from others and seriously considered buying a different shoe. that's a big deal for me since i've been running in kayano shoes for the past ten years. based upon many folks comments i up'd a half size from my previous order. So pleased i didn't jump brands - may be my favorite kayano yet.

Comments about Mens ASICS GEL-Kayano 23 Running Shoe:

I got this shoe to replace my tried and true Nimbus shoes because it was on sale but I made a big mistake.There is no way this is a level 5 shoe. Feels more like level 3 in terms of cushion and support. I could not run more than 4 miles in this shoe. The pain on the balls of my feet became too much, it felt like I was walking on pebbles the entire time. You can feel the sponginess of the insoles with every step and feels rather thin compared to the Nimbus. Oh well, back to the Nimbus.

Service and delivery comments:

Sales and returns is excellent. The hassle free return feature is why I am a RoadRunner shopper.

Comments about Mens ASICS GEL-Kayano 23 Running Shoe:

NIce shoes but the sizing is off. I have always been able to wear the same size and count on a great fit, with this new model I have had to go up a half size and it does not fit as well as before.
Bummer.
Also I expected some new bright colors and they are not there.

Not for me

By Charles

Comments about Mens ASICS GEL-Kayano 23 Running Shoe:

The last two pairs of sneakers I bought were Brooks Beast 14 and 16. Really liked them both. I decided to make a change and try something different since I read reviews that these Asics were good for flat feet. I ran in them 3 times and my foot and shin pain is horrible. I'm part of the VIP club and hoping when I return them that goes smoothly. I will be exchanging for another pair of Brooks Beast.

Comments about Mens ASICS GEL-Kayano 23 Running Shoe:

I love Asics sneakers have been buying them for many years,other runners I know like to mix up the brands of sneakers they
run in not me strictly Asics.Ive never been disappointed with a pair of Asics I've purchased or in making my purchase at Roadrunner
Sports. Weather at the store or on line,their sales people are very knowledgeable and helpful when it comes to helping me with my
purchase or questions I may have in regards to running or training.

wrong color

Comments about Mens ASICS GEL-Kayano 23 Running Shoe:

Shoe is great - comfortable and fit but unfortunately we thought the shoe was white instead it was silver. It is VERY difficult to find athletic shoes that are conservative in color these days. Please offer color options in white!!!

True fit, great feel

By Robert

Verified Buyer

Comments about Mens ASICS GEL-Kayano 23 Running Shoe:

I changed to this model of Asics shoe because the ones I had worn previously had changed to where the width was no longer true to what it had always been and were too narrow. The Kayano gave me that perfect wear out of the box fit without any break-in period and restored my confidence in the Asics brand.

    By Jacob

    Comments about Mens ASICS GEL-Kayano 23 Running Shoe:

    The shoe feels like I am running on pillows. The problem is that after a couple runs, I still have and am getting worse shin splits. I have very flat feet, so these may not be the shoes for me. If I didn't have this problem, these would be a great pair of shoes. If you haven't had shin split issues in your past, this is a great shoe!

    Comments about Mens ASICS GEL-Kayano 23 Running Shoe:

    Another solid pair from Asics. It is true the toebox is less roomy vs older Kayanos. But on the flip side the 23's are lighter and one piece uppers make it nice for fit. Road Runners were fantastic to order from. Very happy!

    If it ain't broke - don't "fix" it

    By Robin

    from undisclosed

    Verified Buyer

    Comments about Mens ASICS GEL-Kayano 23 Running Shoe:

    I am an average distance runner (20-25 miles a week) and have purchased the GEL-Kayanos for over a dozen years. The fit has been consistent and comfort has been amazing. Unfortunately, for some reason, ASICS believes they need to change the style of the shoe every couple of years. They did this with the 23s. The shoe's appearance has been diminished and it looks almost "plastic". The contours have been flattened out and the shoe has lost its distinctive look. It now resembles most of its competitors. It is truly a shame.....especially with the shoe's exorbitant price!! One final comment I believe ASICS needs to go back to ECON 101. The pricing point is creeping or so closely to being elastic.

    Comments about Mens ASICS GEL-Kayano 23 Running Shoe:

    I use the 23s for every day wear staying active attempting to keep up with my daughter and my dog. ASIC Gel-Kayanos always provide great stability and support, as well as comfort I haven't consistently found in another shoe. I will say that the fit in the heel isn't awesome, and the toe box is still a bit narrow compared to what most people enjoyed lastly with the fit of the 21s, but still an overall great shoe.

    10 miles right out of the box

    By William

    from undisclosed

    Verified Buyer

    Comments about Mens ASICS GEL-Kayano 23 Running Shoe:

    My third pair of K-23's. First run 10 miles right out of the box with zero issues. These are great shoes for me. The compliant that they are smaller in the toe box than the 22's is true and although I would like more room in the toe box it has never been an issue for me. I have had my gate tested and definitely need a stability shoe. I have tried Brooks and Nike but I always come back to Asics Kayano's. I have had all the typical overuse running injuries and Kayano's just seem to provide me with the best injury protection.
