    I use the product every day to run outdoors 4 to 8 miles.
    Lightweight and stable make it a great everyday running sneaker
    Seems to wear out completely and lose stability after 2 months.

        I used the ASICS Kayano series shoes to train for and run a marathon. They provide comfort and stability without feeling heavy. I am pleased with the support of this shoe series and, therefore, chose to continue to reorder for future races.

            I was introduced to the Kayano about two years ago at Roadrunner; since then it is the only running shoe I will ever wear. In fact, I always keep two new pairs in my closet just in case Asics stops making the Kayano. It is, by far, the most comfortable running, athletic shoe I have ever owned. And I've been around for 66 years. I wouldn't think of running my half marathons without them!

              These are my favorite ASICS shoes. I took them out of the box and wore them for a half marathon. They were perfect - not one blister. Love the stability they offer - wish you still had them in pink:)

                    First shoes I purchased on-line without trying on. I run on dirt and pavement and these shoes are great for both. Last pair were [$] (won't mention brand) and these offer much better support. Perfect fit and the price is right.

                        I have purchased three generations of Aasics Kyanos. The assymetrical lace placement is great for my high arches and insteps. It's a light weight moderate stability shoe that also hugs my heel without pinching. Comfy feet means longer, faster runs. Love my shoes!!

                                    I've been using the Womens ASICS GEL-Kayano for a little over a year. I just purchased my third pair and love them. Absolutely no break-in period! From my first run, they feel great on my feet. I need a stability shoe and these provide great support and I love the lace design which makes it fit very snug over the top of my foot. The 17 is slightly lighter than the 16 and I'm very happy with my latest purchase!

                                        Very nice shoe - switched to these from the Nimbus because I needed more support and was pleasantly surprised to find them soft feeling while still providing the extra stability.

                                            I purchased these shoes so I could start training for my 1st 1/2 marathon. I have been having issues with my heels especially, but these shoes have been providing great support- and comfort! I am going to be purchasing another pair of these definitely!!

                                              These are AWESOME! I got my first pair after being fitted through the shoe dog process at the Naperville store. [...] ordering a half size up, but these shoes fit perfect with that info. I tend to get shin splints and have been concerned about planter faeceitis in the past year- many of these concerns have lessened once I was in these shoes. Ordered a second pair because they were a good price. LOVE THESE SHOES!

                                                  I am using this shoe for running. It's a nice looking shoe but it did feel "roomy" also the shoes itself seems to come up higher (to my ankle) than what I am used to. It's still pretty new, so I am feeling it out.Have run in it about 5-6 times so far.

                                                      When it came time to order new shoes- I opted to go for the cheaper version of the shoe I was wearing-- I was shocked when I wore this shoe on the first day-- I am almost postitive this shoe is LIGHTER than the old version. I had a hard time beleiveing I was wearing shoes.

                                                        I aspire to be one of those runners who can move effortlessly for miles but I'm not a natural born runner and I'm just really getting started. My Asics are comfortable, built for my kind of foot, so they're making it easier to stick with my program and build the confidence and endurance in my running that I'm seeking.

                                                                          I run anywhere from 20-50 miles per week depending on what I am training for. I have been wearing the 15's for a couple years and loved them...the 16's seem to be just as good, if not better. I only have about 30 miles on them so far, and no run longer than 6, but so far, so good. In the 15's, I was getting holes in the toes after 250 or so miles, so I'm hoping these don't do that.
