Comments about Womens ASICS GEL-Kayano 23 Running Shoe:

I love these shoes, they have kept me injury free for years! So worth the extra money. Super comfortable. I have flat feet and these help me from overpronating and are still super comfortable and not heavy like some stability shoes.

    Comments about Womens ASICS GEL-Kayano 23 Running Shoe:

    This is my third pair from the Kayano line and I've loved them until now. I need a lot of cushioning and it seems that they forgot to put it in this shoe. The Kayano 23 felt less cushioned out of the box than did my old pair of Kayano 22s after 500 miles. And I get uncomfortable hot spots on the bottom of one foot after only three miles. These are going back.

    Comments about Womens ASICS GEL-Kayano 23 Running Shoe:

    I am a competitive distance runner. Weekly mileage varies from 35-55 miles per week. (Higher in marathon season) I have run in and appreciated Asics Kayano models for the past 12 years (having run for the past 32 years in many different brands and styles. Previous Kayano models have been extremely satisfactory and created a brand/model loyal consumer in me. The Kayano 23 is a very disappointing change. Too narrow (had to reorder a wide, which I have never had to do in the past); less forefoot cushion in this model; sole wearing out in forefront much earlier than past models (after just 250 miles). Not sure if Asics was going for less weight with the changes, but the results far outweigh any weight advantage. Very disappointed. Not good timing either as I am gearing up for a fall marathon and need a new pair for September/October. Not interested in wearing the 23 again. Sure hope Asics returns to the tried and true Kayano.

        Comments about Womens ASICS GEL-Kayano 23 Running Shoe:

        There's a reason that I only run in ASICS Gel kayano shoes! They are so comfortable and supportive. The 23 model is a bit more streamlined and light weight than the 22 (or at least it feels that way). I've been wearing the Gel Kayano line for the last 8 years, and I've loved every new version that's been released.

        I ordered a size 9.5 wide; the box said 9.5; womens wide; however the inside of the shoe said size 9.5. I wore the shoes a few times but they kill my feet because they are not wide enough. I wish I would have returned them before I wore them outside.

            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.

            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!

            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.

            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!
