    Comments about Womens ASICS GEL-Kayano 15 Classic Shoe:

    I have been wearing Asics Gel Kayanos for more than five years. I train in them year-round and run races about every other weekend. These shoes provide terrific support and cushioning. I buy a new pair 2-3 times a year, and I have never worn a hole in them (I do wear my running shoes about a size larger than street shoes). From daily runs to 5K's to marathons, these are the only shoes for me.

      I had the kayano 17 before this and like the 15's alot better. The 17's wore out really fast and the lining inside ripped out after 2 months. These feel more supportive and have been way more durable. I just ordered 2 more pairs as backups for when I wear my current ones out.

        I run mainly on pavement, road. This shoe hugs my foot as if it were made specifically for me. I use these shoes for short runs, long runs, walks, and when they wear out I use them for my gym workouts too. They provide plenty of cushion without a lot of weight. I have some knee problems, but when I run in these shoes I do not experience any pain during or after the run. They kept me warm in the winter and cool in the summer. I have nothing negative to say about these shoes.

          I was training for the Disney World Marathon Jan 9, 2011 and have ran in a couple different shoes to train. Started out in Asics 2150, and they are great shoes with lots of cushion and some stability, but I had problems with my knees. I bought the Kayano 15's 2 weeks before my race, and put 30 miles on them, to make sure they would be ok for the race. They were great. Yes, there were aches and pains, but my knees felt great! They fixed my IT issues and I plan on ordering more of these!

            I am very happy with these shoes so far. I have always worn the Asics Nimbus, but am currently pregnant and thought that with the added weight and looser tendons I might benefit from a shoe with a bit more stability. They felt a bit stiff compared to the Nimbus at first, but after a couple of runs I am finding them to be just as comfortable - I might continue with these postpartum!

            I am back to this shoe for my distance running, and I missed this reliable, comfortable, all around great stability shoe. I had a baby 6 months ago and have since been dealing with plantar fasciitis and this shoe has been so great for me to get back to with this condition. The only negative is that the arch support could be a bit higher, but with the plantar fasciitis I may need orthotics anyway.

              I have exclusively worn Asics Gel Kayano shoes for over 15 years. I walk/jog 6 miles, 5 days/week but I am not an athlete, just someone that wants to stay healthy. I have a large foot - women's size 11 and I wear custom orthotic inserts. The Asics Women's size 12 fits beautifully. Living in Colorado can provide different weather conditions and this shoe is ideal when the pavement is clear regardless of temperature. Some Gel-Kayano models have not been as comfortable but Asics got the Kayano 15 right. Because of my foot problems I wear the shoes 8-12 hours a day in addition to my exercise time. I have no complaints with them at all and have three new extra pairs from RoadRunner Sports in my closet ready when the ones I have on wear out since they are on the endangered species list.

              I thought I would try the Kayano since I really like the last Asics I bought (GT 2150s)and the Kayano is recommended for slightly heavier runners. Overall, I still think I like the 2150s better. The toe box seems bigger, which I like, and it also feels lighter.

                      I have run in Kayanos since high school cross country/track. I made the mistake of downgrading to a lesser Asics model when I started running less frequently, thinking I didn't need something quite as powerful. However, I started developing problems with one of my hips. I suspected it may have been the shoes, so I returned to my first love--the Kayno. The first time I put these bad boys on, I actually felt the change instantly. I've been able to run for the first time in a year or so without having pain. I'll never forsake my Kayanos again.

                        Kayano is my favorite running shoe for the past 6 years. The cushioning is the best and I love the stability I get to keep from over-pronating. I have a high arch and the Kayano seems to 'fill' this area perfectly.

                            [...] the "original" Kayano 15s because I didn't like the fit of the new Kayano 16s.[...]I needed the shoe for a triathlon and they got it to me! I ordered a pair of 15s for my husband a few weeks later. The Kayano helps with pronation making me a better, faster runner. RoadRunner Sports is now my "go to" resource for running/workout gear!

                            I consistently wear this model of running shoe. Asics were highly recommended by my podiatrist and I've had fantastic luck. Only compliant is that because I wear them so frequently, they tend to wear out quickly. But generally last 6-9 months.

                                I really like this shoe because it is a sturdy shoe that fits well, has good support, and feels great as I run. I run daily, mostly pavement and I do not feel the impact on my knees when running in these shoes. I would definitely order this shoe again.

                                Run 25-35 miles a week. Previous shoes wear & condition indicated I needed more stability. Research directed this purchase, but use will secure repeat purchases. And there was no "adjustment" period and no joint or muscle soreness to indicate problems. Most important they feel great and comfortable to run in. Purchase was secured and recieved within a few days. Thanks RRS

                                I've had a great experience with this shoe. For me it's been comfortable and have had no problems with holes or anything like that. I'm looking to get another pair!
