    Comments about Womens ASICS GEL-Kayano 23 Running Shoe:

    I got these thinking they would be like the 22's- I have been getting them since 12-wow. Soooo narrow even hard to get on. Went for 2 runs. Took 3 miles before they quit hurting. Toes went numb and outside of foot ached. Returned and got 2 pairs of 22's but I will be looking for a new shoe until they bring back a wider toe box.

        Comments about Womens ASICS GEL-Kayano 23 Running Shoe:

        I had the Kayano 22's and absolutely loved them. Purchased the 23's expecting the same comfort, but that just wasn't the case. I already buy a shoe a full size larger than my traditional shoe size but the toe box for the 23 was still too small. My toes started to hurt/go numb at mile 3. I can't imagine going another 1/2 size larger so I'll be exchanging these for another brand. Asics, please go back to a wider toe box!

            Thank god for the return policy! I have worn Asic Kayano for years with very few problems. Wore these for a 7 miler run and my feet hurt after my first mile. Not sure I want to try purchasing a wider width or try another shoe entirely.

            I went for the lime green/yellow option. Had to go up 1/2 size as others has mentioned. Liking the shoe better than expected since I was disappointed Asics changed the fit of the toe box from the Kayano 21, but these are working out great.

                I've had Kayanos since the 10 came out. Every one after that except the 21's I could put on and go for a run with no problems. When I read the reviews on the 23 being narrow I was excited, my feet run narrow. Stupidly I put these on and took off for a 1/2 marathon. my feet hurt in the first mile. At the end I had blisters everywhere, It took everything I had to finish my feet hurt so bad. These are going back, thank God for Roadrunners return policy!!

                I wanted to love these shoes, they do have a lot of cushion....but they are also so stiff:( I tried walking around them in my house for a while but they just felt so clunky and stiff that I am sending them back. I keep going back to my adidas ultra boost ST shoes instead. I may need to just accept that no shoes are better than them!

                This is at least my 8th pair of Kayanos and this is the first pair I have needed to buy the D width. My orthotics would not fit into the normal width, even though I have been able to for all previous pairs (including the gel-kayano 22s). Disappointed this was the only color scheme available in D width, too. Hoping Asics fixed the width issue and makes the tongue thinner on the next pair or I may have to find a new show.

                I don't like these as much as the Kayano 22 Lites, because the toe box isn't as roomy and the cushioning doesn't seem as cushy. However, it's a good shoe, just not the best for me. I have back issues, but I think if you don't, it's definitely worth giving a try.

                Comments about Womens ASICS GEL-Kayano 23 Running Shoe:

                I run approximately 24 miles a week. Two days of seven miles and one of 10 miles. This shoe became only shoe I will run in about 7 years ago. It has the most cushion and stability that I need. Starting last year however, the shoe required a break-in period which took about 6-7 runs. It was comfortable for the first 5 ish miles, then hurt the ball of my feet for the remainder of the run. After that, they did break in and were fantastic until I needed new shoes again.

                I decided to try the same shoe again just recently. I am experiencing the same break-in. But, it is not as severe and more comfortable than last years' model. Even though I am perplexed by having to break-in the shoe, I am satisfied and will continue to use only the Asics Gel-Kayono for running.

                This was the first time in the 10+ years I have worn Kayanos that I had to return them. The toe box is much more narrow, and my toes were numb after less than a mile. My advice is to stock up on the older Kayanos and hope that the Asics company listens to customer suggestions and goes back to a normal sized toe box. Road Runner Sports gave me excellent service--as always!

                I switched to these from the Kayano 21, and I really love them. I can understand why some people are disappointed in the new shape of the toe box, it is definitely more narrow than the 21's (I never tried the 22's), but I don't have wide feet so that actually worked better for me. I need supportive shoes, and these work perfectly for me. I am currently finishing up half marathon training in them, and no complaints!

                I have worn Kayanos for years, I could put on a new pair and run a marathon the next day. Starting with the Kayano 20 they made them narrower. I had to start buying a wide for the Kayano 20,21 and 22. Then I bought the Kayano 23. What the? These shoes are so narrow my toes got a blister from rubbing on the side. My big toes hit the end. I returned them. Guess I'll have to start finding the perfect shoe again and it won't be ASICS.

                Asics starting making the Kayanos really, really narrow. I was very, very sad. Then I figured it out - just order a wide size, and they fit exactly like the older Kayanos. Now i am happy!! These do feel softer than most of the older ones.
