Women's ASICS® GEL-KAYANO® 23 :: Your ASICS® GEL-Kayano® 23 has been re-imagined in every way and returns as the best ever! 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. Take your running to a whole new level with 23 years of running science packed into this stable gem.

Features & Benefits:

  • Dynamic DuoMax® Support System: Midsole system positioned at an angle to support and engage the foot only when required

  • FlyteFoam™ Midsole Technology: 55 percent lighter than the industry standard with organic fibers that bounce your shoe back to its original shape in the space of each stride to provide perfect cushioning from the start of your run to the finish
  • Impact Guidance System®: ASICS® design philosophy that employs linked componentry to enhance the foot's natural gait from heel strike to toe-off
  • FluidFit®: Combines multi-directional stretch mesh with stretch reinforcements that adapts to the athlete's foot, creating a truly customized glove-like fit

Better broken in

By praguegal

from Virginia

Comments about Womens ASICS GEL-Kayano 23 Running Shoe:

I waited to write this review for a few months so that I could give a trustworthy assessment. Initially, I wanted to send them back as I thought they were too stiff and too narrow. But I'm a great fan of the gel-Kayano's and decided to wear them with a thinner sock. Well, now after two months, I love them. They have broken in nicely, which only took less than a week of gym activity. I ordered the 8.5M instead of my normal 9N. After reading the reviews, I decided the medium might be a better bet, which it was for me. I gave a 4-star rating because of the time it took to break in the shoe. Normally, I put on and go, but this was a little different with the break-in time. Same great support and maybe even a little better feel. I hope this helps.

This is my 5th pair of Kayanos. The toe box is way too narrow and I'll be returning them. I even ordered a wider width and it was still too small.

Comments about Womens ASICS GEL-Kayano 23 Running Shoe:

Been running in these for a few weeks. They bring back the same features I loved about the 22s. I need a solid stability shoe that will keep my plantar fasciitis at bay. I always find that with the GEL-Kayanos.

No, I would not buy this shoe again

By Deb

from New Zealand

Comments about Womens ASICS GEL-Kayano 23 Running Shoe:

I would not buy this product again. I loved the kayana 22 and felt after years of wearing saucany I had finally found an awesome comfortable extremely cushioned shoe. The spongey springy insole was great. The 23 model is so different. The toe box is too tight and the shoe runs too small. I found the next size up too big and too much shoe. Why have they screwed around with such a good product - there is also less cushioning.Please tell them to bring back the previous models or I shall have to once again look for a new shoe.

It's true ... even the "wide" 23 is a little narrow

By Stephanie

from undisclosed

Verified Buyer

Comments about Womens ASICS GEL-Kayano 23 Running Shoe:

I went back and forth about buying these without trying them on first. I have always worn Kayanos, but being the "deal finder," I usually purchase the previous model number. I didn't know that the 22 and 23 versions had a substantially narrower toe box after a redesign. I purchased these in gray, since they were the only color that came in a wide width. I believe the wide is still a hair narrower than the regular width, before the redesign. They'll work for me, but I do miss the regular, wider toe box.

Comments about Womens ASICS GEL-Kayano 23 Running Shoe:

Gel-Kayanos have been my best/only shoe for 15 years...until this model came out. My feet have always said ahhhhh when slipping into a new pair...and now it's "let me outta here!" Please do something about the narrow toebox on the next model. I really don't want to have to look for a new brand.

Comments about Womens ASICS GEL-Kayano 23 Running Shoe:

Asics Kayano's have been my go to shoe for many years and many marathons, unfortunately Asics has changed my favorite shoe and made them so narrow that it is almost uncomfortable. Sadly, unless things change I will be searching for a new favorite running shoe.

I am hesitant to buy these shoes again.

By Cheryl

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.

Almost perfect, narrow toe box

By Clarice

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

Verified Buyer

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.

Comments about Womens ASICS GEL-Kayano 23 Running Shoe:

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.

By Julia

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

    from Oakland, CA

    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.
