      Since extensive back surgery, I only "wog" (walk a while...jog a while). This shoe fits my feet perfectly and isn't heavy! I wear the shoe in all weather and it performs well! I recommend it to all of my running friends who struggle with back or knee issues!

      Comments about Womens ASICS GEL-Kayano 20 Running Shoe:

      I've loved my Nimbus since the 12, but I've been rather injury prone in my right ankle/foot. At this most recent go-around at physical therapy, he videoed my run and found I was pronating on that right foot and dropping my hip, which wasn't the case last time I was videoed several years ago. He suggested a stability shoe, and I picked this one as it seemed most comparable to my Nimbus.

      After two weeks he did another video and the pronation was GONE! My hip still drops slightly, but my PT exercises are helping that.

      I haven't run much more than a couple of miles at a time in this new shoe, but I haven't had any pain since I was cleared to run two weeks ago.

      Just like my Nimbus starting at the Nimbus 14, I have to go a 1/2 size up.

            I wrote a review with two stars for this product because I hand't received the shoes when RRS sent an email asking for a review (the email was sent weeks after the shoes were shipped via FedEx).

            After a call to FedEx, I learned that my shoes were lost (by FedEx) and was referred back to RRS. I called them yesterday. RRS's customer service confirmed that my shoes had been lost (by FedEx) and in less than 24 hours, I had my shoes.

            This is my third pair of these shoes. I have high arches and these shoes have been great. They are comfortable, supportive and light weight.

            I am a fan of these shoes and an even bigger fan of RRS.

              I love these Kayano 20s! I run short and long distances and am prone to injury. Have always worn Brooks Adrenaline's, as I need a support shoe. Thought I'd try something different. Tried the Kayano-19 when they first came out and they were awful. No cushion or support and tore up quickly. So I went back to Brooks but after awhile wanted to try something new and these were on sale so I tried them. They are perfect for me. And TOTALLY different from the 19s. My knees start to ache when I need new shoes. I ordered these, they shipped super-fast, and I wore them immediately. No problems, knees no longer hurt, very comfortable. I love that they come in narrow, which I need. I will def order them again. I know newer versions of the Kayano Gel are out there but you can't beat the price of this model and they are fantastic.

                  I use these Asics everyday, I own a pair of Kayano 18s that are still in great shape. They are great for everyday walking or running, where I have heel pain with other shoes. My feet never hurt anymore so that's why I won't buy any other shoe!

                    Have always loved Asics Gel shoes, so these were a "natural fit". Appreciate the availability of a wide toe box, and you can't beat the cushioning and the motivation provided by a new pair of running shoes! And, BTW, does any other company SO make you feel like you're their Number 1 customer? Thanks, RRS!!!!

                        Running always resulted in sore ankles for me, and so I tended to avoid it. These shoes are comfy and supportive and after 2 weeks of use I have not felt any discomfort in my ankle. Very supportive shoe.

                            I am an avid runner and duathlete who does several big races a year, including a marathon. In addition to running approximately 35 km per week year round, I also wear these shoes on daily 3-5 km walks with my dog. I've been wearing Kayanos for about 4 years and have always been super pleased. They are comfortable, durable and offer the right amount of support. I live in Canada where we have harsh, cold winters and these shoes consistently hold up to the snow and salt. The Kayano 20 doesn't disappoint... After wearing 2 pairs for the past two months, I just ordered a 3rd pair.

                              These shoes are worth every penny! I have plantar fasciitis and I'm recuperating from Achilles tendinitis, the first time I wore these shoes I was able to run 3 miles pain free. Love them! I have wide feet, and this shoes feel just right and the toe box is not constricting at all. Great shoes, if I had more pennies to spare, I would buy a second pair in a heartbeat.

                                I have bad hamstrings, this generates pain in my front leg that goes down through my toes. the cushion helps alleviate some of this pain. It really is a great shoe.

                                I wore these shoes right out of the box for a 12-mile run, and LOVE them. The cushioning is just right for running distances, and not too heavy to make the shoe impractical. I have small feet for my height and very high arches (one of my feet is also fused from past surgery, so I have chronic foot pain/issues) -- I wear a size 6.5 regular, sometimes wide, street shoe. I buy Asics a full size up (7.5), and in wide because I need the room for my toes, and they always fit perfectly. I replace the insoles that come with the shoes with orthotics that have extra arch support, and I also add gel heel seats, and everything fits great. I'm a distance runner, averaging 35 miles or more per week, and run marathons. I love Asics. I had always worn the GT-2000, but after reading reviews for the Kayano thought I'd try it because I was starting to experience more foot and knee pain than in the past, even with my GT-2000s. I am so glad I did. The extra cushioning is noticeable and, for me, makes the transition in my stride smoother and saves my feet. The cushioning in these shoes make them feel a bit heavier than the GT-2000s, but I don't mind because after mile 8+ my feet and legs still feel as good as they did at mile 1. That didn't happen even with my beloved GT-2000s. I still have GT-2000s as my back-up running shoe, but I love these Kayanos so much I think I'll be switching to them exclusively going forward.

                                      I run marathons and train exclusively in ASIC Gel Kayanos. I had the 19 before this and was worried about possible changes to the shoe but this sneaker did NOT Disappoint. It is light, comfortable, and provides good support. I have almost no arch in my foot and these are perfect.

                                      The only issue I have had is the shoelaces coming undone during runs but I plan to try lace locks to fix that problem.

                                        They are the perfect combination of stability and cushioning. I couldn't ask for a better shoe. I'm not 100% convinced that they help my over pronation but I'm not an expert

                                            I've been wearing Kayano's since version 16. I run about 35+ miles per week, have flat feet, and I'm almost 40. These are the best running shoes if you need additional support. I've tried other brands (Nike, Mizuno, etc) and this model is hands down the best. They are very comfortable and light too. They are more expensive than other running shoes but well worth the investment.

                                                  I have foot neuropathy from chemotherapy and diabetes even though I am 45 and fit. I buy a half size up and my orthotics fit perfectly. I walk/jog 15-20 miles per week and my sore toes are very happy in these shoes and I am a long time Asics fan. They would have gotten 5 stars except the laces on these and my previous version are eternally coming untied.

                                                    I recently had complete knee replacements on both knees and when walking I over pronate so this shoe was recommended to correct that. I feel like I get super support with this shoe and it is really comfortable.

                                                      I used to wear the nimbus for running until I found these. The extra stability with cushioning has made my runs much better :-) LOVE THEM!!!

                                                        I bought these as a trial everyday (days off) shoe--since I have the trail shoes. Boy was I surprised! The fit was great--the comfort was immediate--and the support/cushioning was fabulous. I may order these to try as my work shoes (I usually wear NB to work)--as I am a nurse and on my feet all day--with all the foot problems that go with the job. I wear orthotics and no problem. By the way--keep up the fabulous colors--I hate that many brands think female=pink or some combo thereof--mine are black and blue and purple. Be back for more!

                                                        I have run in the Kayano since 2009. I have always loved this shoe until this year. The Kayano 20 does not seem to be of the same quality as previous models. It wears out faster (ie. holes in the mesh only after a few months). I hope Asics redesigns the Kayano or reverts back to the design of previous models, or I might be looking for a different shoe. Still is a comfortable shoe but does not last as long as I had hoped.

                                                          Superior running shoes. The cushioning and stability are so much better than my last pair of running shoes. I run 9-12 miles a week. With my old shoes, I would feel back, knee and hip pain when I completed my daily run. I was contemplating giving up running.. Now I experience no pain. I absolutely love these shoes,
