Product Description:

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
  • Improved fit holds the entire foot better while providing superior toe spring
  • New Convergence GEL® Technology: GEL® cushioning placed closer to the foot to replicate the comfort of your foot's natural tissue, increasing function and shock dissipation
  • 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
  • FluidRide®: Provides the ultimate combination of bounce back and cushioning properties with reduced weight and exceptional durability

Good cushioned shoe for long runs

By Anne

Comments about Womens ASICS GEL-Kayano 23 Running Shoe:

This is my second pair purchased of this shoe because it has such nice cushioning for long runs. I do find the toe box narrower than earlier models but it has been OK for me and I have an average to slightly wide foot. This shoe is also nice and light and I like the one-piece upper. I only wish Asics would provide longer shoe laces.

Comments about Womens ASICS GEL-Kayano 23 Running Shoe:

This is my first pair of the 23s, I feel like they are a bit less cushioned than the 22s and also hit a bit higher on the ankles. Still the best shoe I've found.

Good shoe, bad colors!

By Vicki

from undisclosed

Verified Buyer

Comments about Womens ASICS GEL-Kayano 23 Running Shoe:

I have arthritis, and I need a stable, highly cushioned shoe. I've worn several different models of the Gel-Kayanos, and I think each has had good improvements. They're a little stiff in the beginning, but it doesn't take long to soften them up. The 23s have a more narrow toe box than the 22s, but that works for me. My biggest complaint is the colors. I really wish Asics would have at least one semi-neutral color every time they come out with a new version (not black--I don't work in a restaurant!). I'm 57, and while I like color, some of theirs are too garish to work with my clothes.

By Heather

Comments about Womens ASICS GEL-Kayano 23 Running Shoe:

ASICS- IF IT AIN'T BROKE DON'T FIX IT!!! I have run in Kayano's for over 20 years, was elated when they came out with a wide version for us ladies. But now...this shoes fits slightly larger that a B width for women. Everything else was great- stability with cushioning etc. I had to return a pair and buy a mens Kayano to get the width again. With that said the heel drop in the mens in greater and not as much cushioning. BTY a womens 9 equals a mens 7.5

Disappointed

By M

Comments about Womens ASICS GEL-Kayano 23 Running Shoe:

I have bought this shoe for years. I purchased my normal size and width, 8 1/2 B. I received the shoes and they were so tight I could not wear them. So because I had worn them hoping they would stretch, I did not return them. I then ordered an 81/2 W. These too are too small. I will bee returning them. What's up?

Comments about Womens ASICS GEL-Kayano 23 Running Shoe:

I am a huge fan of Asics for running! I loved the Kayano 20 and was so upset whenI could no longer find them. The Kayano 21-22 just din't feel right to me, and I switched to the GT version of Asics. I decided to try the 23's and I love the fit! They hug my narrow heal and feel so cushioned! I'm looking forward to running many comfy miles.

Comments about Womens ASICS GEL-Kayano 23 Running Shoe:

SO many complaints about the changes made since the 21!! Why doesn't Asics fix this!! I was also a LONG time Asics wearer until the 22 caused me so many problems. I had to switch to another brand. Really wish Asics would listen to it's customers and go back to what worked.

Definite difference in toe box and cushioning

By Rebecky

from Mead, Washington

Verified Reviewer

Comments about Womens ASICS GEL-Kayano 23 Running Shoe:

I have been running in Kayano's for about 6-7 years now. Needed a stability shoe and cushion. Have been very happy with them until I started running in the 23's last week. Couldn't believe how much they changed in the toe box and they just don't feel very cushioned either. Usually I can really tell the difference when I change out my shoes newer ones always feel more cushioned. These did not. I am still running in them in hopes they break in and stretch out in the toe box. I have a normal width foot and have always gotten a B width, these feel like a Narrow width.

Service and delivery comments:

Service and delivery Are always Great with RRS.

Awful

By Jessica

Comments about Womens ASICS GEL-Kayano 23 Running Shoe:

Ordered these online. They will be returned ASAP. I could barely get my foot in. I switched to Asics (the gel-kayano) from Nike 3 years ago. The gel-kayano has been an amazing shoe for me. This most recent version is nothing like any gel-kayano I have ever worn. Now I need to find a replacement. Sigh.
