WATCH: ASICS Gel-Kayano 20 Running Shoe Preview
This October the Asics Gel-Kayano is leaving its teenage years behind and celebrating its 20th birthday with some major updates. One of the most popular stability shoes on the market, the Kayano has provided runners with ample stability as well as a premium, plush ride for years. ASICS loyalists and first-timers alike will not be disappointed by the newest addition to the Kayano lineage.

Runners can expect a more secure fit and a dynamic ride in the Kayano 20 due to the new and tried-and-true features.

What's new about the ASICS GEL-Kayano 20?

  • FluidRide Midsole - A dual-stack midsole compound that provides a blend of responsiveness and cushioning with reduced weight and impressive durability.

  • FluidFit Upper - A combination of multi-dimensional stretch mesh with stretch reinforcements that allow for an extremely adaptive, glove-like fit.

What stays the same?

  • Rearfoot and Forefoot GEL Cushioning - The very same cushioning system that has made ASICS famous. It provides shock attenuation upon landing and plush comfort throughout the gait cycle.

  • Dynamic DuoMax Support System - ASCIS' new and improved stability system that controls a runner's pronation more fluidly and comfortably.

  • AHAR+ - ASICS High Abrasion Rubber. Highly durable rubber placed strategically in the outsole to ensure that the shoe will last for miles and miles.

How does the Kayano 20 fit compared to the Kayano 19? Don't worry about sizing up or down. The GEL Kayano 20 maintains the same fit it has had for the past several releases. However, some runners may find that the new FluidFit will wrap the foot just a bit more tightly. Yet, the flexibility of the stretch mesh allows for greater freedom during your run.

You can pre-order the ASICS Kayano 20 for men and the ASICS Kayano 20 for women, in a variety of fun colors.
