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.

  • FluidFit®: Combines multi-directional stretch mesh with stretch reinforcements that adapts to the athlete's foot, creating a truly customized glove-like fit

I would buy this product again with price VIP offers

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.

Comments about Mens ASICS GEL-Kayano 23 Running Shoe:

I have been buying the Asics Gel-Keyano for several years. I wear them for work. I am on my feet for 10+ hours a day. I have flat feet and these shoes are always comfortable and supportive, even right out of the box. I replace them every 6 months

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.

Great shoes keep a 70 year old guy on the move and in shape.

By Harold

Comments about Mens ASICS GEL-Kayano 23 Running Shoe:

These are the best running shoe I've ever owned. They fit beautifully so no blistering or chafing while keeping a comfortable, smoothly cushioned stride. I am an older runner (70 year old man) who runs/walks 30+ miles per week. These shoes are a big reason why I feel good while staying fit.

    • Walking
    • With Orthotics/Inserts

    Comments about Mens ASICS GEL-Kayano 23 Running Shoe:

    Buy up at least a half size, maybe even a full size, like I do with the Kayano. Asics continues to make its latest shoes with short, crowed fit in the toe box. Is there something about how the engineered mesh fabric is manufactured or sewn together that this problem affects several Asics shoe lines? So never buy a shoe without trying it on first! I wear an internal orthotic so I avoid a floppy fit, but otherwise be careful. I look forward to the day when Asics returns to a better all around fit, with orthopedically correct room in the toe box and true-to-fit sizing.

      Just got them and so far I like them a lot. Kayano 22 was a change from 21, it felt lighter and faster. 23 is not very different - maybe a bit stiffer but still very comfortable. It's a great show for me...

      So far, so good. I moved away from Asics for a while and now that I've run in these, I remember why I like them so much. They are super comfortable. However, pay attention to the size. I ordered a half size up and they're still very snug.

      Comments about Mens ASICS GEL-Kayano 23 Running Shoe:

      Have been running in Gel-Kayano for several years. They have been a great combination of support and cushioning, but unlike the earlier models, the 23 doesn't seem to be as natural a fit. They seem tight across the toes, and take a long time (months) to get that 'broken-in' feeling

      This model is not as breathable as the earlier GEL-katana 20,19,18 etc. I have bought this running shoe GEL-Kayan series for over 13 yrs. This model ai also narrower. I'd buy wide if I purchased again. All my other GEL-K running shies are normal width.

      I use these shoes for weight training and running. They provide good stability when cross-training (weights, jumping, balance exercises) and lots of cushion for my 200+ weight when running. This is my 5th pair of Kayanos, and I will keep buying them as my go-to trainers.

      My son burns through sneakers and we bought these because of the reviews and the 4E width. He's very picky about his sneakers but found these to be wide enough in the toe box for him while also not being too chunky in the sole.

      Should be a 5 except that I had to exchange my first pair for a 1/2 size larger. That never happened before during the 20 years I have been buying Gel-Kayano. Apparently many others had the same problem according to the store clerk who made the exchange for me. Not sure about the next models 24.
