    Thank you Asics for the new Kayano 18! I loved the 17 and was worried when the new version came out. It fits so much the same but seems softer so far on the 50 miles I have on my new pair.

      Comments about Womens ASICS GEL-Kayano 18 Running Shoe:

      I have cycled through about 10 pairs of these puppies, and they are the best running shoe around. I have run in them all over the world, from the hot and dry conditions of Baja in Mexico, to the alps in Switzerland. I have run 4 full marathons and countless half marathons in these. As a Seattlite, I end up doing a lot of running in the rain- these shoes also provide great traction.

            I have a wide foot and have always loved this shoe. The 18 runs narrow even in the wide width. They just are not as comfortable as the previous models. Back to wearing my old 17's.

              I read that this shoe (Kay 18) was a full ounce lighter than the Kayano 17. I loved the Kayano 16, but couldn't find my size in the 17, so tried the 18. Absolutely terrible. I know where the ounce came from--the front sole. I felt everything from the pavement, including the July heat! It was only a 4 mile run, thank goodness. This one's going back!
              Sorry Asics I really wanted to love it. :-(

              Comments about Womens ASICS GEL-Kayano 18 Running Shoe:

              I bought these to replace my beloved Gel Kayano 16's. Asics has definintely made some big changes since the #16 model! The 18's have great stability and cushioning, but I found them to be extremely hot and non-breathable. The fit is much different than the older Kayano model as well. Although the toe box is nice and roomy, they seem to be a bit narrower in the forefoot area. My first run (5 1/2 miles) left me with blisters. Needless to say, I will be exchanging these shoes today.

                I bought these after running in the 16's for a while. These 18's are so much more comfortable, and so much more lightweight. The cushioning is great, but still provides alot of stabilty. Going a half a size up is never a good fit for me, so I bought them true to size (8 1/2) and they fit well, but are a tiny bit snug (I wouldn't go as far as saying they are a half a size too small). I love them and will continue to keep buying them as my current pairs wear out while I'm training for a marathon.

                    My last running shoe was the Kayano 16. It fit great and was a good running shoe. I ordered the same size in the Kayano 18. It was shorter in length (than the 16), narrow in the toe box and wide in the ankle (just the opposite of what i need). They felt a little hard, but I only wore them briefly around the house, so I can't say much about the cushion and support. Disappointed to have to send these back.

                      I have run in Kayanos for many years. The 16s were my favorite. When I received the 18s in the mail I immediately noticed they were not as substantial as previous Kayanos. And I was right...terrible cushioning, flimsy, not enough overall support--maybe comfortable if walking, but not outdoor running. Not the same Kayanos I am used to. I would not recommend.

                        I use to wear Nike Air Structure Triax and only one shoe would wear. I loved them but now that I am in ASICS I will never go back

                            I have tried several different brands and styles of running shoes over the years. By far, this is my favorite shoe when putting in long miles. I needed a good stability shoe. I have had surgery on both knees and when wearing these shoes for my long runs, I do not have nearly has much joint discomfort in my knees and hips. Very much worth my money.

                                  I have been running in this exact shoe for about 20 years.I can always count on them to fit perfectly from day one, no matter how different they may look from year to year. This makes it possible for me to buy without trying. This purchase was my first from Road Runner, and the best price I've ever found.

                                  I have been a 35 mile a week runner for about 25 years and have recently been having a lot of foot problem. Went to the podiatrist who recommended this model since I needed cushion no the bottom of my foot. I've worn Asics for years but never this model. As soon as I put it on my foot it was comfortable and added much needed cushion on the bottom of my foot. I now have one pair for running and one pair for kicking around.

                                      I have always heard that the Brooks Trance and Asics Kayano were the best shoes. I have a bad overpronation and these seem to help me alot. I wanted to try these so when they went on sale I got a pair to try. I have always ran in Brooks but wanted dto try a more padded shoe. These shoes offer a more padded step and are comfortable. Seem to run a full size small. VERY SATISFIED WITH THESE SHOES!!!!

                                      Shoe feels comfortable but does not seem to provide as much cushion as I would like even with insoles.

                                      This shoe made my feet move to the opposite of the center while I was running. I had to tie them extra tight so they would stay in place and that was unconfortable. I am very surprised this well reated model made me hate the shoes so much. I am going back to lower gel numbers because even the shape of the lace holes was towards the opposite side of the shoe and not in the center.

                                          I have a narrow, flat feet and I overpronate. I tried on the Kayano 19, but didn't feel comfortable spending $150 on a pair of shoes that I wasn't sure would work out. Luckily, Road Runner Sports still had the Kayano 18 in stock, so I ordered it instead and it is working out great. I will switch to the Kayano 19 when they go on sale. You should order a 1/2 size up from your normal street shoe size.

                                          I did try on just about every brand of shoe designed for overpronators and these were by far the most comfortable for me.

                                              Comments about Womens ASICS GEL-Kayano 18 Running Shoe:

                                              I have gone through a few pairs of these shoes while training for my last 50 miler. I love them! They took me on the road, on the trail (I have trail shoes, but I wore the Kayanos more), through mud and puddles, etc. The only reason I went through a few pair were because of the mileage I was putting on them. I was able to comfortably wear my inserts with them. They are lightweight, comfortable, and everything I was looking for in a running shoe!

                                                Excellent running shoe. I run 21 to 30 miles per week, and train for half marathons usually, though doing my first full soon. The Kayano has always done the job for me.
