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

I would buy this product again

Comments about Womens ASICS GEL-Kayano 23 Running Shoe:

I immediately felt comfortable in this version of the Gel Kayano compared to others in the past that I felt I had to "break in"
Not sure if there is more room in the toe box, but I feel like there is.

Not your typical Gel Kayano!

By Tara

Verified Reviewer

Comments about Womens ASICS GEL-Kayano 23 Running Shoe:

Despite other reviews of this shoe I ordered anyway because I have only ran in this shoe for at least 5 years. The toe area is too narrow and the insoles rub against the inside of my heel, making it painful to wear them . Sending back and guess I will try something new.

Comments about Womens ASICS GEL-Kayano 23 Running Shoe:

I wear these to work in the hospital everyday. I have never complained about Asics and I have been buying Kayano for 15 years. These 23's are terrible they are not holding up to just walking the hospital floors at work and I alternate the 2 pair I bought so....that is even worse! I would love to get a refund if that is possible.

Asics ruined my favorite shoe

By Wendy

from undisclosed

Verified Buyer

Comments about Womens ASICS GEL-Kayano 23 Running Shoe:

The Gel-Kayano became my favorite shoe because it had a roomy toe box and great support. I have narrow feet, but they spread out when I walk, like many overpronators. The Kayano 23 has a much narrower toe box, and my feet hurt terribly after just one day of wear. I sent them back, but my feet are still aching a week later.

By barbara

Comments about Womens ASICS GEL-Kayano 23 Running Shoe:

I bought these to replace Asics (it would have been my third pair) running shoes. Unfortunately the shoes across the toe area were much narrower than my last two pair, even though I ordered the same size and I thought the same GEL shoe. As soon as I tried them on, I knew that had to go back. Very disappointed as I LOVED my two former pair of Asics Gel. Now I'm now looking for a replacement.

    Comments about Womens ASICS GEL-Kayano 23 Running Shoe:

    Last year was my first time buying expensive shoes. I bought the Asics Nimbus 18 and fell in love! I was having a lot of hip pain when I'd go for walks and after wearing the Nimbus 18 the pain went away completely. After they wore out, i checked out the Nimbus 19 and the fit was horrible compared to the Nimbus 18. So, I decided to give the Kayano 23 a try and ordered them online. When they arrived I was so excited to try them! Unfortunately, these shoes are so uncomfortable. I feel no cushioning. I'm not a runner but walk for my daily exercise. I'm used to walking 4 miles a day and I cannot get through one mile without my back, hips and feet killing me. I'm hopeful Asics will see these reviews and fix their product.

    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.
