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

  • 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

Love this shoe!

Comments about Womens ASICS GEL-Kayano 23 Running 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.

No more Gel Kayano

By Darla

Comments about Womens ASICS GEL-Kayano 23 Running Shoe:

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

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!

Comments about Womens ASICS GEL-Kayano 23 Running Shoe:

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.

Comments about Womens ASICS GEL-Kayano 23 Running Shoe:

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.

Gel Kayano 23 Delivers!

By Ann

from undisclosed

Verified Buyer

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

from undisclosed

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

Good running shoe for the average runner

By Henriette

Verified Buyer

Comments about Womens ASICS GEL-Kayano 23 Running Shoe:

This is my second pair of Asics Kayano 23 - both in black. These are the best running shoes for my feet and gait, and I'm well pleased with them. I will say that the 23 run about a half size smaller than the 22, which is worth keeping in mind,. I also want to mention that generally my experience with asics is that the black shoes show less wear than the colored ones on the soles, almost as if the material
Is more resilient in black?
Generally find these shoes light weight and comfortable

My fave running shoe

By Jan

Verified Buyer

Comments about Womens ASICS GEL-Kayano 23 Running Shoe:

I love this shoe, it is by far my favorite. I am on my feet all day and the cushioning is superb for that as well as running. That being said, I don't know why the toe box in Asics shoes are getting tighter and tighter. I listened to other reviewers and went to the next width and I am glad I did! They fit like my previous Gel-Kayano 22 in the narrower width. WHY, WHY, WHY are they making them so tight?!

Toe Box

By PATRICIA

Comments about Womens ASICS GEL-Kayano 23 Running Shoe:

Dear Asics Tiger our feet aren't rulers ,saying that I love the feel of the Kayano 23 especially like the way the Asics stripes(?) have been moved behind the bunion area no pressure on the big toe joint . I don't think I could run over 10 miles in the K23 simply because of the toe box as feet naturally swell during long runs . Please build running shoes with a more natural toe box shape

Go-To running shoe

By Jeri

Comments about Womens ASICS GEL-Kayano 23 Running Shoe:

Kayano 23 is my go-to running shoe. The toe box is slightly narrower in this version compared to the Kayano 22, but by loosening the strings all along the opening, I've had success in making this shoe continue to work for me. I run approx. 20 miles per week.
