    Comments about Womens ASICS GEL-Kayano 20 Running Shoe:

    I have been wearing Gel-Kayanos since the 17 series. They are the only model and brand that works for me. I have tried the Gel-Kayano 21's and I was not happy with the update and immediately started searching and buying more 20's. They have a good fit and great cushion. I mostly run on treadmills.
    I highly recommend the 20 series shoes.

        Love the cushioning but runs a bit large. I'm normally 8-8.5 but always been 9 in Asics GT 2170 & Gel Cumulus 16 GTX. Ordered these in 9 & seem a bit larger than my others. I probably could have gone 8.5.

          FINALLY a shoe that helps my pain go away. I read that you should order 1/2 size larger, I was skeptical. but I did. The fit is great. I have feet that hurt all the time, but especially after wearing sneakers that surround my whole foot. These do not. Wear them all day foot actually still hurts but less than normal.

                      As usual, I discovered these just as the next model was coming out. This requires that I stock up/squirrel away several pairs. But that's nothing new, right?

                              Love the comfort, cushioning and durability. There was no break in period. Very comfortable the first time I wore them. Great colors to choose from.
                              Walk about four miles a day and/or use them at the gym.

                                  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!

                                  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!!!!

                                                  This is the first running shoe from Asics that I have tried. I have found my new favorite running shoe. I have a bad knee and need cushioning while running and this shoe provides it.

                                                    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 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.

                                                                These are so comfortable. I love the color because they pretty much go with anything. Good support and so glad they carry narrow because I have really skinny feet.
