Overall, I can sum up this review with only one word "WOW"! I used to run cross-country in high school and then continued to runs as an adult. Now, I've certainly tried out running shoes in practically every single brand. Even though I occasionally chose another brand, I keep returning to the Asics GEL-Kayano as my ultimate favorite. And the model GEL-Kayano 19 has definitely not disappointed me once again. These sneakers have great support, with the perfect amount of cushioning and stability. My feet do tend to pronate slightly and I run/walk VERY heavily on my feet. Therefore, I appreciate the right amount of cushioning to prevent the pain that often starts when I run or even just stand on my feet for an extended period of time. These sneakers also possess good stability because my ankles feel well supported without the sneaker being too rigid. I would highly recommend the Asics GEL-Kayano 19 to anyone seeking a comfortable sneaker for everyday wear, as well as, for long distance running.

I bought these shoes for a HIIT class that I attend three days a week and personal training two days a week. I always buy the higher-end Asics (over five years) and it seems that all my friends liked these so much, two others bought them about the same time. We bragged about how awesome they felt, but after about five weeks, we all had shoe melt down. Our feet were all over in our shoes and our calves and feet were aching after running, jumping, etc. I was really disappointed in these shoes for the first time.

I needed a super comfortable shoe because I use orthotics and also my feet are sensitive to any rubbing. These shoes are not used for running, just walking, but they are the most comfortable shoe that I have ever had. I wore them out of the store and traipsed all over the Dalmatian Coast with them. Not one blister or sore feet. Great shoes. I will buy another pair so when these wear out I will be prepared. I wear 7 1/2 so I got an 8, I have a very high arch and wide toes.

The best running shoes I've ever worn. I go back and forth with my running shoes. I mostly purchase them all through Zappos and I've recently run in Adidas Supernova, Newton (trail and road) Nike air max and Nike Lunar and the Asics Gel Kayano is the best performer of all. I use an orthotic insert but these shoes have a great toe width, are supportive, responsive and overall an extremely comfortable shoe. I used to train in Asics Kayano for marathons and I'd forgotten about how great they are after taking a long break. Well I'm back and here to stay. Love the fun colors too that definitely helps in my purchasing decisions.

Saved me! I have painful knee and back problems and the first day I wore these shoes, the knee pain pretty much disappeared and a week later my back is doing better also.I ordered the wider width in my normal size 8. They fit great with a light sock or a heavy sock. They look nice as well. The best shoe buy I ever made. Highly recommend these for people with knee and/or back problems.

These are quite possibly the most comfortable shoe I've ever bought. I have flat feet and these have incredible support and cushioning. I love them!
