I bought these sneakers, because the reviews were positive. I am very pleased with the purchase. The shoes fit well and are very comfortable. They provide excellent support. I was told that gel bed shoes are hot, but this is not the case with the Asics Gel-Kayano 20. The breathable material keeps my feet nice and cool.

One of the most comfortable shoes I have ever worn! Light weight, and great support. I think I have a lifetime "keeper" in the Gel-Kayano line.

Great shoe. I have some major feet/ankle problems and my doctor recommended I get good running shoes. I tried several other brands and was not happy. When I started looking for this pair I decided to go retail. Every clerk I talked to said ASICS, even if there store was 80% stocked with another brand that has a check mark on it. I decided on the Kayao 20 because it had the best reviews for ASICS. I have not been disappointed. They provide great support and awesome cushioning for my feet. I went with Zappos because they were competed and had the black and silver I was looking for.

I bought these for my son, who has painfully flat feet, after looking around town and trying on a lot of less expensive shoes. It was hard to spend so much but we have never found any other style that works as well for him and I know from his last pair of Kayanos that they are so comfortable that he will most likely refuse to wear any other shoes until they fall apart. They're well made though so I'm sure that won't be for a while, which is saying a lot for a teenager's school/athletics/hanging out shoes.

I need 13/4E shoes. Zappos carried them and most local stores did not. My feet are also flat and I have had a bout of plantar fasciitis. The Kayanoss are well cushioned and treat my feet pretty well. I am very happy with them. Now if you could get my size in all colors...
