Comments about Womens ASICS GEL-Kayano 23 Running Shoe:

Gel-Kayano are the only tennis shoes I wear. My plantar fascia tendon is totally severed and these are the only tennis shoes I can wear without experiencing pain; however, after saying this, I must say that the Gel-23 are not nearly as comfortable as the 21 and 22'S. They seem to be shorter, the tow box narrower, and the "gel" is not as comforting or cushioned as in the others. I have probably purchased 6 pair of these shoes in the last three years. Any others I try, are not as good. After saying all of this, I really don't know where to turn. I hope the next ones will be like the earlier models. Road Runner Sports I love you. No problems on your end. You are fast and efficient in fulfilling your orders. Thank-you.

Comments about Womens ASICS GEL-Kayano 23 Running Shoe:

Have worn kayano for eight years. Love them. Only reason I didn't give these 5 stars is the sizing. Had to order 8.5 because of the narrow toe box, normally wear 7.5 in regular shoes.

Comments about Womens ASICS GEL-Kayano 23 Running Shoe:

Have been wearing kayano for eight years, needless to say, love them. The only reason I didn't give this edition 5 stars is the sizing. The narrow toe box made me go up another half size. I wear 7.5 in most shoes but needed 8.5 in these.

Something changed with the Gel Kayano 23 women's sneaker

By Donna

Comments about Womens ASICS GEL-Kayano 23 Running Shoe:

This is the first time Gel Kayanos did not fit me. I have been wearing this model for 8 years, and have always been an 8, but these (Gel Kayano 23) were too tight and narrow. I was really disappointed because the Kayano 23 was the perfect color (all black) instead of all the crazy neon colors that the Kayanos seem to be nowadays.
RoadRunner was great in refunding my purchase. Great customer service.

Comments about Womens ASICS GEL-Kayano 23 Running Shoe:

Awesome cushion in the new model. I did buy it half a size up from usual to deal with the smaller toe box. But with doing that I could take them on and go straight for a long run. I love this shoe. I have been running in Kayano since #16. I just ordered a second pair.

I've always liked gel kayano shoes. This is tighter fitting, but it still works. Seems to have less cushion, tho. than the 22's. Only ran few times in them. Still testing them.

Comments about Womens ASICS GEL-Kayano 23 Running Shoe:

I really like Asics's runners for women, for the most part. Sometimes they seem to change up the fit. This model this time is slightly constricting through the toe box and rubs on my arthritic toe joint. I am hoping for some give and stretch.

    so sad

    By Jenn H

    Verified Reviewer

    Comments about Womens ASICS GEL-Kayano 23 Running Shoe:

    Ok. I knew better. I read the reviews but still hoped that the kayano would be the shoe that I have known and LOVED for years. Sadly, it was not. The toe box is MUCH more narrow and I felt it immediately upon putting the shoe on. I didn't even bother to run in them. So sad to see a perfectly good shoe ruined. I have been loyal to kayanos for years, so its a bit heartbreaking. Well, off to shoe shop again. Hard to be be a shoe orphan.

    Service and delivery comments:

    yes, of course. the delivery was lovely. the shoe was fine -it just was too narrow thanks to ASICS.

        Comments about Womens ASICS GEL-Kayano 23 Running Shoe:

        I've been wearing asics shoes for years and this one is horrible!!!! It's the most uncomfortable running shoe I have ever owned. It's not just too narrow in the toe box but it's also very flat on top of my toes (like they were too cheap to use enough to material to make a whole shoe!) so my toes got crushed from every direction. They are also very lacking in cushion and support. In hind sight I should have returned them but now they are just expensive yard working shoes. Hate them.

            I've been a Kayano lover since the 18's. From the 21s on they have been way too narrow in the toe box and forefoot as well as too short. I've had to try other brands none of which I like as much as I liked the Kayanos. Please bring back the style from the 19s and 20s. Those were the most comfortable shoes ever!!

              I have been wearing the ASICS Kayano shoe for 6 years. I bought a pair as a gift for someone who has foot issues. They loved this shoe!!!!!! So did I. So I ordered a pair for myself soon after. This is hands down the most comfortable running shoe ever. I joined the VIP Family, and Road Runner was so prompt and friendly, I wouldn't dream of making a running shoe prlurxhase elsewhere. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED

                  Why did ASICS do this to a wonderful running shoe?!? The toe box is way too small now and the shoe is so uncomfortable. This was a no-brainer, go-to shoe in the past. I've run in the Kayanos for over a decade. Now I have to find a new running shoe. What a hassle. Thank goodness for the RRS return policy. I never thought I'd have to use it, but these definitely went back. What a shame!

                  I bought these shoes for my 70 year old mom for Christmas because she needed them desperate. Her shoes were worn down and she doesn't buy herself anything hardly ever. She had a brace on her ankle due to ankle and foot pain. Well when I first became familiar with Asics Kayano, I was at the doctors office for foot pain. He recommended Ingo to Road Runner to get aaASICS running shoes. They then recommended the Kayano, which is their best, for the pain and rolling foot issues I was having. This was in 2006. I am on my third pair. I will not wear anything else. The shopping experience and quick shipping methods keep me at Road Runner, along with the outstanding and friendly service. I am a VIP Member which is so worth it!!!! BTW: my mom was so happy to get her new shoes that she almost cried. No more brace in her foot now. She LOVES them. Thanks Road Runner!!!!

                  As well. The ASICS KAYANO is the BEST shoe for this. You will not regret it. Also, the VIOMemberahip is so worth it if you buy from Road Runner, which, of course you do! I love my new shoes!!!!

                      Really narrow and not as supportive as the Kayano 22's. I had to return and go up 1/2 size to get these to fit. Kind of a hassle -- wish they told me in the description that the shoes are now cut more narrow and to go up 1/2 size for the correct fit. They only have one color in D -- bummer. Women that have wide feet want pretty colors too :)

                      I have bought Asics Gel-Kayanos every year for the past 9 years. This is the first time that I haven't been able to wear them. The toe-bed is so narrow that it hurt my foot. I even bought a 1/2 size up because other reviews said the same thing. It is sad that they have ruined this shoe. Sadly, I will have to find a new brand now.
