Stability. The 18th version of the legendary Kayano series is as reliable as ever. The ASICS GEL-Kayano® 18 is comfortable and stable for a great ride.

Upper: Exoskeletal heel counter Heel Clutching System™ provides improved support and a better fit in the heel area. Biomorphic Fit® stretch material is strategically placed on the upper to help reduce buckling and the potential for irritation. P.H.F.® (Personal Heel Fit) system uses two layers of memory foam to line the heel collar and mold to the athlete’s heel, creating a personalized fit. Padded tongue for step-in comfort. Mesh upper with synthetic overlays for support and style.

Midsole: Removable ComforDry™ sockliner provides cushioning performance and anti-microbial properties for a cooler, drier, healthier environment. Solyte® midsole material is a lighter weight midsole compound than ASICS standard EVA and SpEVA®. DuoMax® support system utilizes a dual-density midsole system that is positioned to enhance support and stability. Gender specific Space Trusstic System® midfoot stabilizer creates a pocket between the Trusstic System® device and the midsole, allowing for controlled midsole deformation and more efficient foot function. Heel and forefoot GEL cushioning absorbs impacts for added comfort. Impact Guidance System (I.G.S.®) design philosophy employs linked componentry that enhances the foot’s natural gait from heel strike to toe-off.

Outsole: Guidance Line® vertical flex groove decouples the tooling along the line of progression for enhanced gait efficiency. AHAR® (ASICS High Abrasion Rubber) is placed in critical areas of the outsole for exceptional durability. DuraSponge® blown AHAR® rubber compound is used for enhanced cushioning and durability in the forefoot.

Available in widths B (Medium), and D (Wide).

Runner's World Best Update
March 2012

"Simply put, the Kayano is a Titan. Over its 18 iterations the shoe has consistently performed well for our wear testers. This lastest version earned higher marks than any other shoe in our test for comfort, cushioning and stability. The shoe feels like a padded boxing glove you can use to pound out mile after mile, pain-free. Testers raved about the fit – especially in the rearfoot, where a new external heel counter keeps a firm grip on your heel while wrapping your Achilles in cushy padding and soft fabric. Even with the addition, the Kayano is a half ounce lighter than its previous version. Points awarded. Bottom line [the Kayano 18 is] surprisingly light and delivers maximum protection. "

        Both my wife and I wear Kayano shoes as triathletes. I recently bought this shoe for my wife as an early Christmas gift and she loves them and I loved the price. As with most shoes, the only con is arch and comfort support, but we always buy inserts for our individual foot styles, which I highly recommend.

          I already knew I loved the Gel Kayano - I've been running in them exclusively for 8 years. Buying htem from Holabird meant I saved $60 minimum for literally the exact same shoe. I'm sold!

                A:

                The GEL-Kayano 18 is ASICS’ flagship support shoe. It has lots of cushioning and good support for a foot that overpronates. Although it is designed as a running shoe, the Kayano 18 is also great for walking. Since runners sustain more impact when they land, running shoes are more cushioned than many walking shoes.

                Yes, these shoes are comfortable for walking and running.
