To start, maximize your cushioning while keeping it light with the new FLYTEFOAM™ Midsole reinforced with organic fibers for lighter weight. Next, lock down your heel, improve all-over fit, and enjoy springier toe-offs all thanks to the new last.

Good shoe

By Wayne

Comments about Mens ASICS GEL-Kayano 23 Running Shoe:

Overall, a good shoe, based on about a dozen runs. However, I was surprised that it's cushioning wasn't a bit more noticeable given its website description. If I hadn't gotten it on a good sale, I would have thought it was not worth the price compared to other Asics options like Cumulus.

Disappointed that ASICS has reduced line of motion control shoes. The Kayano doesm't cut it for anyone looking for that. Barely accommodates orthotic

Second pair of Kayano 23

By Tim

from undisclosed

Verified Buyer

Comments about Mens ASICS GEL-Kayano 23 Running Shoe:

Kayano 23 works for me... so this is my second pair.
The obvious reason there are so many makes and models of shoes, is because
everyone has a different shaped foot than their neighbor. I tried to make the Kayano 24
work for me... but Asics made some subtle changes.
I am hoping the 25 will come back to the 23 toe box shape.

Trusted everyday shoe

By Peter

Verified Buyer

Comments about Mens ASICS GEL-Kayano 23 Running Shoe:

Brought three versions of the 22 and was ready to skip to 24. The 24 appears more like the 22. Not sure what compelled me to get the 23, but I was glad I did. It feels wider than the 22 and does not seem to have the natural (or unnatural) roll of the previous versions. Visually, it appears more stylish with air pockets on the top and along the sides with a variety of colors underneath. I always worry about the dirt on a white shoe -- my white 22 one is grayer now. While wider is good and more comfortable, you may have to draw the laces in a bit more to gain a tight, firm fit. Somewhat lightweight, but my primary appreciation here are the comfort and the ability of the shoe absorb quite a bit of surface strikes when running. Great shoe to walk around everyday in too.

Comments about Mens ASICS GEL-Kayano 23 Running Shoe:

These are fantastic running shoes. I got one of the last pairs of the 23's because I liked the ones I bought when they came out. At least I saved a few bucks withem on clearance! Great shoes! Light weight with super cushioning.

Comments about Mens ASICS GEL-Kayano 23 Running Shoe:

I have been using the Gel Kayano for years and specifically the 22 until they were phased out. Purchased the 23 and something drastic has changed in the design of the shoe. I immediately felt an ache in my left hip that I had not experienced with the 22. I have found the 22 from a different vendor.

Never again

By Carlos

Comments about Mens ASICS GEL-Kayano 23 Running Shoe:

The shoe was great! The service was horrible! I waited over a week. I called twice the day it was supposed to be delivered and was,told it would be arriving that day by two different people at Road Runner Sports. The shoes were shipped FedEx to the US Postal Service which defies logic and made the delivery take even longer. Why not have FedEx deliver the shoes directly to me?

Road Runner used to be a great company, but you have really,gone down hill.....

Comments about Mens ASICS GEL-Kayano 23 Running Shoe:

i read the comments from others and seriously considered buying a different shoe. that's a big deal for me since i've been running in kayano shoes for the past ten years. based upon many folks comments i up'd a half size from my previous order. So pleased i didn't jump brands - may be my favorite kayano yet.

Comments about Mens ASICS GEL-Kayano 23 Running Shoe:

I got this shoe to replace my tried and true Nimbus shoes because it was on sale but I made a big mistake.There is no way this is a level 5 shoe. Feels more like level 3 in terms of cushion and support. I could not run more than 4 miles in this shoe. The pain on the balls of my feet became too much, it felt like I was walking on pebbles the entire time. You can feel the sponginess of the insoles with every step and feels rather thin compared to the Nimbus. Oh well, back to the Nimbus.

Service and delivery comments:

Sales and returns is excellent. The hassle free return feature is why I am a RoadRunner shopper.

Comments about Mens ASICS GEL-Kayano 23 Running Shoe:

NIce shoes but the sizing is off. I have always been able to wear the same size and count on a great fit, with this new model I have had to go up a half size and it does not fit as well as before.
Bummer.
Also I expected some new bright colors and they are not there.

Not for me

Comments about Mens ASICS GEL-Kayano 23 Running Shoe:

The last two pairs of sneakers I bought were Brooks Beast 14 and 16. Really liked them both. I decided to make a change and try something different since I read reviews that these Asics were good for flat feet. I ran in them 3 times and my foot and shin pain is horrible. I'm part of the VIP club and hoping when I return them that goes smoothly. I will be exchanging for another pair of Brooks Beast.
