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.

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.

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.

Great update to a good strong high milage training shoe.

By Craig

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.

Disappointed

Disappointed that ASICS has reduced line of motion control shoes. The Kayano doesm't cut it for anyone looking for that. Barely accommodates orthotic

Second pair of Kayano 23

By Tim

from undisclosed

Verified Buyer

Comments about Mens ASICS GEL-Kayano 23 Running Shoe:

Kayano 23 works for me... so this is my second pair.
The obvious reason there are so many makes and models of shoes, is because
everyone has a different shaped foot than their neighbor. I tried to make the Kayano 24
work for me... but Asics made some subtle changes.
I am hoping the 25 will come back to the 23 toe box shape.

Trusted everyday shoe

By Peter

from undisclosed

Verified Buyer

Comments about Mens ASICS GEL-Kayano 23 Running Shoe:

Brought three versions of the 22 and was ready to skip to 24. The 24 appears more like the 22. Not sure what compelled me to get the 23, but I was glad I did. It feels wider than the 22 and does not seem to have the natural (or unnatural) roll of the previous versions. Visually, it appears more stylish with air pockets on the top and along the sides with a variety of colors underneath. I always worry about the dirt on a white shoe -- my white 22 one is grayer now. While wider is good and more comfortable, you may have to draw the laces in a bit more to gain a tight, firm fit. Somewhat lightweight, but my primary appreciation here are the comfort and the ability of the shoe absorb quite a bit of surface strikes when running. Great shoe to walk around everyday in too.

Comments about Mens ASICS GEL-Kayano 23 Running Shoe:

These are fantastic running shoes. I got one of the last pairs of the 23's because I liked the ones I bought when they came out. At least I saved a few bucks withem on clearance! Great shoes! Light weight with super cushioning.

I would not buy this shoe again.

By John

Verified Reviewer

Comments about Mens ASICS GEL-Kayano 23 Running Shoe:

I have been using the Gel Kayano for years and specifically the 22 until they were phased out. Purchased the 23 and something drastic has changed in the design of the shoe. I immediately felt an ache in my left hip that I had not experienced with the 22. I have found the 22 from a different vendor.

Never again

By Carlos

Comments about Mens ASICS GEL-Kayano 23 Running Shoe:

The shoe was great! The service was horrible! I waited over a week. I called twice the day it was supposed to be delivered and was,told it would be arriving that day by two different people at Road Runner Sports. The shoes were shipped FedEx to the US Postal Service which defies logic and made the delivery take even longer. Why not have FedEx deliver the shoes directly to me?

Road Runner used to be a great company, but you have really,gone down hill.....
