This shoe is awesome! I have tried every shoe out there, and nothing compares. I have horrible wide feet and have always gotten blisters when running races. I ran my first marathon in these and was shocked at the finish line, my feet were the only thing that didn't hurt! Not 1 blister! Love these shoes! Also very light weight for a stability shoe!
I've been buying 1 or 2 pair of Kayano's per year since at least the Kayano 17. They have always given my feet excellent support and cushioning. However with these Kayano 21's I found that they are lacking cushioning in the areas I need it. I wore them to the gym and within in 30 minutes on a stationary bike my toes were going numb. I decided to add some inserts which only helped a bit. I went on a power walk and made it through the first 50 minutes with only a little numbness but the last 40 minutes went from difficult to agony. I had to stop and sit for a bit to get some circulation back in my feet. I also had a spot rubbing on the base of my big toe that I was unaware of until I took off my sock and found it rubbed raw. I never had any issue with the earlier Kayano 17-20's. Unfortunately, whatever they changed in this model is really bad for my feet and there is a pressure point created that cuts off circulation.
I've been wearing ASICS for some time,and switched to Kayano on #19 to get more padding. Also had #20. This update seems to head back to the #19 fit (which I preferred) and is better! Updates are tricky and often make something that works stop working. Glad this one is just better.
All around great shoe. Just the right level of cushion and support.
I've been wearing the Kayano since the 14 came out. When I heard they were releasing the 21, I had to get them! While I was not impressed with the Kayano 20 (a bit too snug for my foot), the 21 is great! The fit is a lot better, and works with my custom orthodics. I normally wear a size 8 in running shoes, and for me, these seem to fit true to size. They are great for short and long runs; I don't feel fatigue in my feet and knees. Although they are a bit pricy, they are totally worth it! I just bought the Kayano 21 Lite Show, too!!
