I had GT 2160s but they do not make them anymore. I ponied up the money and bought these shoes. The guy told me these were better than the 2160s. They feel fantastic on your feet when you are just walking around. I was so excited to take them out for the first run. They felt great while running and my feet did not hurt. However, after I got done running and finished stretching I felt a sharp pain in my knee, one that I have never had with my 2160s after running the same distance. I held them up to my 2160s. The Kayano 19 had quite a bit less cushion in the heel and forefoot. I believe this caused the knee pain. I put my 2160s on the next day, ran the same distance and no knee pain. For the money, I am not impressed. I will be taking these back to the store I bought them and getting my money back. The Kayano 18 even has a more cushioned heel than the 19.

Really disappointed that Asics stopped making the Kayano 18. After years of searching, thought I found the finest shoe in the 18's. I'm 6'1, weigh 225 and this model does not have the support of the 18's, the heel is much thinner, and I find my hips wearing out faster. Just an average shoe.

This was my 2nd pair of these shoes! I love the 19 and never saw this color before. Had to jump at them! Always get a ton of compliments. I love the 19's for their great comfort for my running workouts and their durability for my daily gym routine.

I love this shoe! I'm buying another pair before my size is gone. It is one of the most comfortable shoes I have ever owned. From the minute I put it on, it's like a nice slipper, yet the support and stability are awesome! I do like the 19 better than the 17 and 18 models I've had in the past.

I just got into running after having never been a runner in my life. These shoes are definitely worth the investment. Any foot pain I had was gone in less than a week after switching to these. Would definitely purchase again once they wear out.

The shoes are recommended by my podiatrist as part of my recovery from a ruptured Achilles. They are good shoes and comfortable but I can jog somewhat more easily in my slightly worn nb753. I use them with over the counter orthotics which changes the dynamic somewhat. I would recommend them although they are on the high price end.

Bought these for my boyfriend for Christmas. I have a pair of Asics which I absolutely love. Well, he has had them for 3 months & they look terrible. Both heels are ripped on the inside. I'm very disappointed and wish I never purchased them. They aren't cheap shoes.
