      Comments about Mens ASICS GEL-Kayano 20 Running Shoe:

      I average 25-30 miles per week and run four half marathons each summer. I have been running Kayano's since the 18's. I have been somewhat injury prone with PF, shin splints, IT band syndrome, etc. I have run 40 miles in the new 20's but so far I like my 366 mile 19's better. The 19's got a bad rap for reducing weight and cushioning but two pairs have worked well for me. After two treadmill break-in runs my next two road runs were 10 and then 11 miles in the new 20's. They felt good but I got heal slap with the 20's even though I have the laces cinched up very tight. I plan to continue to run them because even after the long runs my legs recovered pretty fast so they seem to provide good protection against injuries. I am also trying a pair of Brooks GTS 14's. If they don't work out I might buy another pair of K-19's (buy them super cheap now). At this time, the jury is still out for me on the K-20's.

          I mix up both gym time and running 3-5 days a week and my running averages 2-5 miles at a time when I run. I have a large build and have used Asics for the last 5 years. I was like many who regretfully purchased the 19's and I almost completely gave up on Asics with those shoes. I purchased the 20's as a last chance and am I ever happy I did that. I have an extra wide foot and the fit is perfect, the cushion is great and I have no regrets with the 20's I'm happy to say that I will definitely buy them again.

            Tried my first pair of Kayano's with version 19 last year and ran them in the Chicago Marathon. I tried Hoka's at the urging of a running friend after that, but after two months, the Hoka's were giving me issues. The upper actually broke down and I started to have hip and knee soreness.

            I returned to the Kayano with version 20 and I'm very satisfied. This shoe is an improvement over version 19. Solid stability and a more cushioned ride. The upper is made of great material that breathes well, is very comfortable, and moves well with my feet. I'm a Clydesdale runner and the width sizing has been crucial for me (13-4E). Long runs have been comfortable and I feel good the following day. I already purchased a second pair for later in the season.

              I bought these after a lot of research and couldn't be happier. These are replacing a very well used pair of GT-2150s that were grateful to be retired. The fit and support are great, and the cushioning is superior to my old pair. I use them every day for my workout. It's great to have a big selection of sizes and widths here because 14 2E shoes are not stocked by many retailers.

                      I run 18-25 miles a week and have average arches. The Gel-Kayano 20 is a great mileage shoe. The forefoot cushioning is perfect and the heel has enough cushioning to keep a good pace. I had no problems with the width or fit. I did buy it a half size bigger. Good distance shoe that has a springy feel to it.

                        Being 6'7" and weighing 240lbs I have chosen this product because of its durability, comfort, and longevity. I run 3.5 miles about 12 times a month and I can easily get 10 months of solid wear from the GEL-Kayano before I feel I need a new pair. This is not my first pair and it will certainly not be my last.

                              I run about 3-4 miles every day and have been using Asics Kayano shoes for several years now. The "Kayano 20's" are the best so far. Very comfortable cushioning but still great stability and firmness. My feet are not tired nor hurting when I am done running and in fact feel like they just had a great message! I purchase these a half size larger than my actual foot size.

                                I was a Mizuno shoe fan until the Inspire 10's came out. Hated those shoes so I tried these Asics. I have run over 20 miles in them without a break in period needed. No pains or discomfort. Great shoes. I am 6'4" 190 and run between 4 and 10 miles a session.

                                  Comments about Mens ASICS GEL-Kayano 20 Running Shoe:

                                  I have been hooked on the Kayano for about 15 years. I skipped the 19 because of comments, as I like good cushioning. The big change I see in the 20 is that it is longer than the other Kayanos have been. I like good toe room and have always had a thumb width from my toe to the end of the shoe with a size 11 1/2 (I wear a 10 street shoe). With the 20, I have a thumb and a half which is really too much room. I would go with an 11 if I reorder the 20. Fortunately because the shoe fits so well otherwise, I can get away with the 11 1/2, so I am keeping them. I don't think I could do this with most other running shoes. As far as the cushioning, it did seem firmer than my 18s, but after a week of wearing them, I don't notice much difference. While minor, I do like the perfect size shoelaces in comparison to the shoelaces in the 18s which were too long.

                                      I've run in the Kayano until the 19. I tried 2 different pairs of Kayano 19s and kept getting narly knee problems and plantar fasciitis. Within two weeks I switched back to the 18 and all my problems went away. I've now successfully transitioned to the 20s (whew!), but they are still not the Kayano 18 or before. I wish Asics would leave good enough alone. If you could run in the 18 or earlier versions, I'd bet you'll be fine in these. Be sure to slowly transition from old shoe to new.

                                          Running 35-40mi/wk have used Asics for years. The "19" edition had some probs but all have been cleared up from this runners perch with the "20". If Asics reads this I say don't change a thing!!

                                            I just completed my first full marathon last weekend. My training runs and the actual event itself wear comfortable and I barely even noticed them. I think this is a good sign, comfortable to the point where I didn't "feel" them, allowing me to focus on other important aspects; form, pace, breathing, etc. My feet felt fine after 3 hr and a half hours of running.

                                              A tale of two shoes: I loved them out of the box and initially thought they were much better than my old 18s. Now that I've had them a few months, I can't really say that they are better, or worse, just not the same. The 20s feel much lighter and still have the supreme stablity characteristics I'm used to getting from Asics. Not to mention they keep my feet cool and dry like no other shoe I've owned. I did however notice these shoes don't quite have the cushion I got in the 18s. I still have life left on my old 18s and now alternate them into the rotation for my longer runs and hold back the 20s for my tempo workouts. One thing is for sure, my splits are much faster in the 20s, but I do feel a bit more joint pain on days that I run in them. Mostly in the lower ankle region. I supose if I lost another 15 pounds, I would not be complaining about cushion. If you're a heavy runner like me, you may look for something with a bit more cushion and forego the light weight Kayano 20s. If you weight 170 lbs. or less, and have a tendency to pronate, these shoes are probably perfect for you. Overall, they are still a good stability shoe and construction feels solid like what I'm used to from the Kayano collection. I would recommend them to my fellow runners. I did notice a few bad reviews about lack of stablity, and my guess is they're in the wrong shoe size and it has nothing to do with the quality of this product. I have always struggled with over-pronation and can honestly say these Kayanos are as good if not better than the 18s in that category. I hope this review was helpful and good luck!

                                              * If you're new to Kayanos, be careful of the shoe width when you make your purchase. They tend to be a bit more narrow than the other Asics of similar size. I had to bump up one size in width the first time I bought a pair. I'm glad I didn't just throw in the towel on the my first experience. It was worth the minimal shipping fee to send back the first pair for a wider set. The Kayanos got me off the couch and enjoying the run experience. I just wish I had known about them years ago when I was actually fast. These could have saved me from a lot of frustration and injuries.

                                                The shoe is probably the most comfortable running shoe I've bought in years. Great stability and fit is true to size. The only thing I don't like is the laces (thickness of them); even when I tie them extremely tight, occasionally one of them comes loose in the middle of an otherwise good run.

                                                  My 3rd iteration in the Kayano series and the best so far. A tad narrow in the toe box but still great. Hoping to run my 1st full marathon in these after doing 5 half marathons. More cushioning and better looking than past Asics.

                                                    Big improvement over the 19; not quite up to the overall stability of the 18s. Still, this Kayano 20 is good for the long haul (marathon). At least I think it is. I'll know for sure after the Honolulu Marathon Dec. 8.

                                                        Bought the K-20 to rotate runs with my Asics 2000-2. I ordered the 2000-2 half size bigger and 2E. I ordered the K-20's half size bigger and normal width. Feels about he same to me (good). I'm running the SA R&R Full Marathon this Sunday. Will opt for the K-20's. Expecting about 3:30 Full. I run 55-65 weekly, and am very satisfied with both the 2000-2's and K-20's. Have no problem running the Full in either shoe. On a scale of 1 to 10, I give a slight comfort edge (cushioning) to the K-20's. Not enough of an edge to spend a bunch of extra $$ for them. If they were put on your feet without telling you which one it was, you wouldn't know the difference. Happy Running!
