ASICS® Gel - Kayano 18 - Men's

The 18th version of this legendary running shoe features significantly decreased weight while maintaining the classic ride, comfort and stability that has made the ASICS® GEL-Kayano® an icon. Open mesh upper offers breathability to help keep the foot cool. Personal Heel Fit™ (PHF) is a two layer memory foam lining in the heel collar which creates a personalized fit. ComforDry™ Sockliner is made from an antibacterial material that not only reduces odor and moisture, but also provides additional cushioning. Biomorphic Fit® is stretch material strategically placed on the upper to help reduce buckling and the potential for irritation. Rearfoot and forefoot GEL® Cushioning System attenuates shock. Solyte® midsole is very light for the level of cushioning and durability it delivers. Guidance Line is a vertical flex groove component of I.G.S.® and is primarily articulated in the forefoot to improve gait efficiency. DuoMax® Support System is located in the medial midfoot and is a dual-density material that is designed to reduce excess pronation. Space Trusstic System® is located at the bottom of the midsole and is a gender specific midfoot unit that controls midsole deformation which allows for natural foot movement while stabilizing the midfoot of the shoe. Impact Guidance System (I.G.S.®) enhances the foot's natural gait. ASICS High Abrasion Rubber® (AHAR) is located in the heel and is a carbon rubber that offers exceptional durability. DuraSponge® is located in the forefoot and delivers cushioning, responsiveness and flexibility. Removable insole. Wt. 11.5 oz.

This is a fabulously comfortable running shoe! I had problems with Saucony causing heel rubbing and blisters, no matter how I padded it. This ASICS anchors my heel like it is holding on tight and moving with my foot!
Pros: comfortable, good cushioning

THIS IS ONE OF THE FEW QUALITY RUNNING SHOES THAT CAN BE ORDERED IN A WIDE WIDTH, AS I REQUIRE, (MOST OTHER MANUFACTURERS REQUIRE THAT YOU ORDER CUSTOM MADE SHOES FROM THEM $$$$) IT IS NOT OVERLY WIDE OUT OF THE BOX BUT STRETCHES OUT QUICKLY. VERY COMFORTABLE AND LIGHT. GOOD LOOKING TOO.
Pros: lightweight, good arch support, comfortable, good cushioning, breathable
