Arrived quickly. :-) However, this version of Kayano is significantly narrower than previous models. My foot hangs over the side of the sole on both sides. I will be returning these.

      I purchased this shoe because I had and loved a previous version. The GEL-Kayano 23 is the WORST shoe I have ever had. It's extremely uncomfortable and no amount of alternate insoles have been able to make the wearable. So disappointing.

      My daughter uses these shoes for Cross Country. She has experienced hip problems in the past and these were recommended for her feet. This is the third pair I've bought her and probably won't buy anything but these in the future. They keep her feet stable and her gate correct.
      Only reason I'm not giving 5 stars is because these shoes are pricey! :)

      Love the forefront cushion on these. I run on my forefront so this is one of the models I have found with the best cushioning for that type of runner. Also, I like that there are always a number of colors/designs to pick from.

        I have narrow feet, 2A foot with a 3A heel, so i have serious issues finding shoes that fit. I finally found a home in the Gel Kayano Line. ive had multiple years of these shoes. So when the 23 came out i bought them. They lowered the foot volume so much that the shoe no longer works with m insoles. actually cutting off blood flow to my feet, even barely tied. So i returned them and tried on a B in the store, too much volume with the same insoles.

        Switching away from Kayano after many years of devotion

        from undisclosed

        Verified Buyer

        Comments about Womens ASICS GEL-Kayano 23 Running Shoe:

        This model has a much less "cushy" feel to my feet than previous models. I'm going to switch brands which is a real shame - I've been running in this shoe for years but I fear they've changed it enough that its not a good match for me.

        Not sure if there is more room in the toe box, but I feel like there is.

        Comments about Womens ASICS GEL-Kayano 23 Running Shoe:

        Despite other reviews of this shoe I ordered anyway because I have only ran in this shoe for at least 5 years. The toe area is too narrow and the insoles rub against the inside of my heel, making it painful to wear them . Sending back and guess I will try something new.

        I wear these to work in the hospital everyday. I have never complained about Asics and I have been buying Kayano for 15 years. These 23's are terrible they are not holding up to just walking the hospital floors at work and I alternate the 2 pair I bought so....that is even worse! I would love to get a refund if that is possible.

        Asics ruined my favorite shoe

        By Wendy

        from undisclosed

        Verified Buyer

        Comments about Womens ASICS GEL-Kayano 23 Running Shoe:

        The Gel-Kayano became my favorite shoe because it had a roomy toe box and great support. I have narrow feet, but they spread out when I walk, like many overpronators. The Kayano 23 has a much narrower toe box, and my feet hurt terribly after just one day of wear. I sent them back, but my feet are still aching a week later.

        Comments about Womens ASICS GEL-Kayano 23 Running Shoe:

        I bought these to replace Asics (it would have been my third pair) running shoes. Unfortunately the shoes across the toe area were much narrower than my last two pair, even though I ordered the same size and I thought the same GEL shoe. As soon as I tried them on, I knew that had to go back. Very disappointed as I LOVED my two former pair of Asics Gel. Now I'm now looking for a replacement.

          Comments about Womens ASICS GEL-Kayano 23 Running Shoe:

          Last year was my first time buying expensive shoes. I bought the Asics Nimbus 18 and fell in love! I was having a lot of hip pain when I'd go for walks and after wearing the Nimbus 18 the pain went away completely. After they wore out, i checked out the Nimbus 19 and the fit was horrible compared to the Nimbus 18. So, I decided to give the Kayano 23 a try and ordered them online. When they arrived I was so excited to try them! Unfortunately, these shoes are so uncomfortable. I feel no cushioning. I'm not a runner but walk for my daily exercise. I'm used to walking 4 miles a day and I cannot get through one mile without my back, hips and feet killing me. I'm hopeful Asics will see these reviews and fix their product.
