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.

      Comments about Womens ASICS GEL-Kayano 23 Running Shoe:

      If you love the Kayano 22's, you will be greatly disappointed by these! Even on short, easy runs these were giving me shin splints and causing my ankles to throb. Toe box is way too tight. I wanted these to work out so badly because I love the 22's, but they aren't even similar. Very happy to see that another model (24's) has now come out.

      Comments about Womens ASICS GEL-Kayano 23 Running Shoe:

      Love the Kayano! I recommend going with a half size bigger. I wear a 9 shoe and have both the 9 and 9.5 in these. I can wear the 9, but the 9.5 is so much more comfortable. I have 2 pair and rotate them for my runs. Perfect fit, great comfort and support!

      Not even a month and already the sneaker has a hole on the side. This is the 2nd pair of these sneakers that are defective. I need them for my parts on my left leg and am finding it difficult to get a pair that doesn't rip in less than a month

      Feel not as cushioned and somewhat more cheaply made than the many prior generations of this shoe I have owned and loved. Hoping next version gets back to a more quality look and feel.

      Not my favorite

      By Lucy

      from Ocala, FL

      Verified Reviewer

      Comments about Womens ASICS GEL-Kayano 23 Running Shoe:

      I've own probably 12 pair of Kayanos. These by far are my least favorite. The toe box is the problem. I feel,like it cuts into my big toe and just isn't quite wide enough. Love the style/appearance changes, but honestly, if I had to grab a pair to run in, these would be my last choice. Including a beat up pair of Brooks Glycerin I own.

      Service and delivery comments:

      Nothing wrong with delivery and service as per usual. Just wish I would have put these in my regular rotation sooner, as I missed the return window...I kept thinking that they would "break in".

      This is the most cushy shoe ever. I've tried sac aunt, brooks,new balance & I keep coming back to these. Know most reviews state the shoe runs smaller, so I uped it half a size. It's Ok, I think it runs pretty close to ur normal size, which I usually get. I'm a probate, weigh about 125, & run 10k three times a week. I think it's a great shoe.

      I wear these shoes with my custom orthotics and they work great for me. The shoe fits snugly on my narrow foot and I really like the fit around my narrow heal, but the toe box is the perfect amount of room for me. It's a great choice for a stability shoe and can take a lot of miles.

      The Gel Kayano that I've worn for around 15 years has changed their design. Beginning with the 22, the toe box is significantly narrowed. The 23 was the same tight fit. I've returned the 23.

      Best shoes ever for flat feet!

      By Brandi

      from undisclosed

      Verified Reviewer

      Comments about Womens ASICS GEL-Kayano 23 Running Shoe:

      These are my favorite shoes of all time! I have wide flat feet and have had 4 surgeries, so my feet require lots of support and cushioning. These provide both and I love how they look. I put them on in the morning and take them off before bed. My feet are never achy or sore no matter how much walking or stair climbing I do. I purchased a pair of the new Kyanos but will likely order another pair of these as well. Also, I ordered an 11W which is my usual size, and they fit perfectly!

      I have wide feet and I used to love the Kayano. I never really liked the color choices for the wide but I was happy to get a wide shoe. Unfortunately, the past two models I have noticed they aren't as wide as they used to be. the toes box has shrunk.

      I've used ASICS GEL-Kayano for my jogging shoe for at least a decade. It is the only comfortable jogging shoe that really fits my VERY narrow foot. Unfortunately, it is rather expensive, but it holds up well for around 125 miles of jogs.

      By Ann

      Comments about Womens ASICS GEL-Kayano 23 Running Shoe:

      I have been wearing Kayano's for about 20 years. Most recently, the cushioning seems to hold up longer in the forefront, and the stability can't be beat. I highly recommend this shoe to heavier runners (I'm between 150-153 depending on the season) with good form. I won't switch to anything else!

      Good but not perfect

      By Allyson

      Verified Buyer

      Comments about Womens ASICS GEL-Kayano 23 Running Shoe:

      This is my first time wearing Kayanos. I always wore the GT-2000, but as Asics keeps changing that model, I have been liking it less and less so I decided to make a switch. Overall, the Kayano has been comfortable - I like that the heel to toe incline is a little steeper than Asics. I don't like the way the show is sized. I had to order a 7.5 and I am usually a 7 - unfortunately, they feel a little big on my right foot, but the 7s were way too tight and I have narrow feet. I don't have that "perfect fit" feeling with these. They feel a little heavier than what I would expect (perhaps because I am wearing a bigger shoe than I typically do). I've only been running in them for a few weeks, so I can't comment on long term performance yet.

      Great shoe - how about less crazy colors?

      By Elinor

      from undisclosed

      Verified Buyer

      Comments about Womens ASICS GEL-Kayano 23 Running Shoe:

      Kayano 23 delivers the same, reliable, good quality as all other Kayanos (Except one, years ago where they skimped on the cushioning.). I think this one is listed as just a tad heavier than the 22 model, but I don't notice it when running.
      Feels good out of the box always, and although I use these on both asphalt and trail, the soles show very little wear when I retire them before 400 miles.
      If I could, I'd run in a lightweight, neutral shoe for Tempo, Track, and racing, but my tendons won't let me. The AISICS Kayano model has worked for many years for me to let me run decent mileage and include quality training without breaking apart completely
