Comments about Mens ASICS GEL-Kayano 23 Running Shoe:

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.

        I love the feel of this shoe that I ordered a second pair. It runs a 1/2 size small because of the narrow toe, so order a half size larger.

        Comments about Mens ASICS GEL-Kayano 23 Running Shoe:

        This is my second pair of the Kayano 23. My first pair tending to wear quickly in the tread area. Also, after several months the stability wasn't as good. It seemed like the shoe started to break down. However, I still decided to order a second pair. We'll see how this pair does.

        Comments about Mens ASICS GEL-Kayano 23 Running Shoe:

        I actually bought these as a woman so I could have a wider toe box -typically wear a 9.5 and ordered an 8.5. Love them! Have always loved asics but my size is usually hard to find good color selection-this will open a whole new world for me! Yay!

        Have been a fan of the gel Kayanos for a few years. Love the updated look and new colors, bought 3 pair now to rotate through. Feel lighter and more cushioned than the 22'standard but may be just that they are new.

        Toe box much better than 22's

        By scott

        from undisclosed

        Verified Buyer

        Comments about Mens ASICS GEL-Kayano 23 Running Shoe:

        I've been wearing Kayanos for over a decade. I'm tough on shoes. Prob average 70-80/wk. They are my favorite, most stable running shoe. Every few years they'll "cut" the shoe a little different. Last year's pair (kayano-22) had the toe box cut smaller and caused a lot of discomfort. Had to scour the web to find every last pair of 21s. Glad to see that they fixed the problem with the 23s. Light, stable, and fit true to size. I replace the insert with a pair of Pinnacles for a perfect ride.

        Comments about Mens ASICS GEL-Kayano 23 Running Shoe:

        The GEL-Kayano 22 shoes i have been wearing maybe the best running shoes I ever had (and i have been running since 1975). Reading the comments about the Kayano 23 shoes it sounded like the toe box may be narrower than the Kayano 22. I have been running in both, alternating daily between the two and cannot tell any difference on the fit. So far the 23's are as good as the 22's and I am happy about that.
