      A little different from the 18s

            Comments about Mens ASICS GEL-Kayano 20 Running Shoe:

            Bought these shoes to replace my Kayano 18s. (Jumped over the 19s because I read some bad reviews about them.) I love my 18s and have run a LOT of miles in them. Reviews for the 20s said they were as good as the 18s. The one change that I've noticed from the 18s to the 20s is that there seems to be a small gel cushion that hits me on the ball of my foot (and the ridge that runs right below my toes) that wasn't in the 18s. It has taken me a little while to get used to that. (I have finicky feet.)

            Otherwise, the shoe fits well and seems to run very nicely.

              Comments about Mens ASICS GEL-Kayano 20 Running Shoe:

              I have a hard to find size: 16 2E or 4E. I am also 6' 4" and am not light at 200 lbs. For years I could only find models from another company in my size and usually in only one model.

              I can say that finding the Kayano 19 and now the 20 in my size was a huge story for me. They are light and very comfy. I have flat feet and need either stability or motion control shoes. The Kayano has about the right of stability for me.

              It is incredibly nice to have more than one shoe model to choose from.

              This is my third Kayano..

                    Wore Brooks Trance for years and this transition to a lighter Kayano is much better with the same support. I should have made this switch 4yrs ago. Brooks offer good support but horrible colors and designs.

                    Needed a shoe to replace my Mizuno Wave Nirvanas since the company retired the shoe. Had run in Kayanos a few times before and decided to try them again. Glad I did because they are working for me. Have occasional plantar issues, but these shoes combined with an insert from my PT have kept me running regularly. I have two issues with the shoes. First, I have to tie the shoes, especially the right one, quite tight to keep my feet from flopping inside them. The size is right; it just seems that Asics puts a bit more material around the foot than some other manufacturers. Second, the shoes do not wick/dry well. I live/run in Alabama, and after a run, everything is drenched, including shoes. These seem more saturated than other shoes I've worn. However, I plan to keep running in them and will replace them with a new pair when the time comes. Overall, I am quite happy with the Kayanos!

                      I run about 3 times a week and had been having trouble with joint pain. After using this shoe for about 3 weeks now, I have noticed a significant reduction in impact to my knees and ankles. The arch support is also just right.

                        After many years off, I started running again in mid-April. I am 70, 220 lbs. The 20's have proven to be comfortable, provide excellent support/stability, and appear to wear well. I have 4E feet, so sizing up a full size appears to work better in terms of the toe box. My stride lands on the forefoot with little heel roll. This shoe appears to be superior to the Kayano 19.

                            I've been running the Kayano since the 17. I loved that shoe, loved the 18, hated the 19 and am angry I didn't return them, and now, love the 20. I'm 5' 11.5" tall and about 185 lbs...and 41 years old. Suffered from runners knee for the past year.
                            The 20 was a little tight the first couple of runs (felt 1/2 size too small) but they just needed a little breaking in. The shoes feel excellent now. i've had knee pain for the past year, so I'm very careful with the shoes I select. I'm happy to say I've been running on the 20s and feel great...they are very, very well cushioned and feel much lighter than he last few models. I'm now back to my normal distances - about 25-30 miles per week - and honestly think that these shoes are one of the reasons I'm back on the road. I'm glad I tried the Kayanos again and would recommend them to anyone.

                              I use them for officiating soccer on turf surfaces. It has become something that a large number of our association Membership now wears.
                              I the V.P of our local high school soccer referees assoc.
                              Running shoes on artificial surfaces . Less stress on feet and legs.

                                No complaints, these fit well and provide ample cushioning. I bought these, based on other runners' comments, to see if they last longer than my Lunar Glides, which I also like. The latter seem to last me only 300 km before I start experiencing foot pain. The Kayanos work fine so far, will have to wait if I can get more distance from them compared to my Lunar Glides.

                                  I bought the gel Kayano-20s to rotate with my other running shoes which I really love. The problem is I have been running in my new Kayano-20s exclusively instead of rotating them.

                                    I decided it was time to retire my Kayano 18's after 600 miles. I ran 11 miles in my new Kayano 20's right out of the box without any hotspots or other issues. They are amazingly comfortable and, judging by my past experience, extremely durable. Highly recommended! Will definitely buy again!

                                      I run on pavement 90%, 5% on concrete, and 5% on dirt several times a week here in the desert. Temperatures range from 60 - 80-ish F. My new 20s perform as they should and are a pleasure to run in. I'm afraid the heel's starting to wear already because that's what the 17s did.

                                        So far so good. I have switched from Brooks Trance 12's, since they discontinued. Much better cushion that the 12's. Hoping it lasts for 500 miles.

                                          I have only ran a few times in my new gel kayano 20's, but I will say they are cushioned. I had to get half size larger because the top of my toes got sore after running.

                                          This is the best of all Kayanos. I bought a new pair of Kayanos every year for about 10 years. Thank you for continuing the pursuit of making a shoe that is shaped like a human foot instead of a brick. Shoes should fit like a glove, but some manufacturers think we want them to be beautiful at the expense of comfort. Keep up the good work Asics!

                                            I run every day at leaat 6 miles, these shoes are much better than the previous kayano 19. The cushioning seems to be much better I plan on getting a second pair I am so satisfied with the kayano 20. Let's hope they don't discontinue this line like other good shoes they have in the past.

                                              I tried the Kayanos several models ago and found them hard and they hurt my feet. I am VERY particular about my sneakers since I've had several surgeries and my feet always hurt. I tried several other models, none of them were comfortable. With reluctance I thought I would give these Kayaons a try. From the moment I put them on they were VERY comfortable! They actually feel like a pair of old slippers . . . the go to shoes when your feet hurt. Cushioning is GREAT, they are very comfortable and feel great on my feet. These are KEEPERS!! I've sent MANY shoes back to RRS . . . NOT these!! I need to buy another pair . . . Just wish they were available in 10 4E in other colors like Grey/Orange or White/Blue. Try these sneaks, you WON'T be disappointed!!

                                                Despite more Gel there seems to be Less cushion than the Kayano 19. The Toe box is too wide and a bit longer than in the 19. The heel lining seems to be more durable than the 19 that wore out quickly. The Kayano 20 feels lighter than the 19. Overall, I'm not impressed with the update over the 19.

                                                We work retail, meaning long hours on cement floors. My husband developed Plantar Fasciitis & was hobbled at the end of the day with terrible pain. For 4 days in a row now since wearing these (with gel inserts) he can still walk at the end of the day without pain. Wow. These have more arch support than the Gel Nimbus, the shoe we favored -- I also like the Gel Kensei, and have done well switching around between them (big help!). The online advisor recommended the Kayanos for the Plantar Fasciitis, so with the 90 day guarantee, was worth a try. He also recommended the Big Orange inserts, but they're back ordered. We haven't had these long enough to attest to durability, but they are enough of a success that I ordered another pair right away, and am anxious to try them as well; we'll be ordering more (for him & me) next paycheck. The clincher is that the company is now requiring black shoes as part of the dress code. Even tho these shoes have silver reflective accents, they were OK'd by managmt, so we'll be making the black Kayanos our daily work-wear. Any chance of making Nimbus & Kensei in black as well? -- you'd be saving a lot of foot problems down the road! Not only is the black acceptable on the job, we actually prefer them over the wild lime green & turquoise & orange combos for daily wear. Yes we'd recommend them to a friend -- in fact, we already did: my manager ordered up a pair to try & just received them today.

                                                    I would like to say that I have severe flat feet, and have ran in a Nike for 20 years, switched to Brooks Dyads, and the Gel Kayano 20's gives a comfortable, smoother ride. I'm going to purchase another pair so that I can rotate them between runs.
