These are the best shoes. I have always worn Asics GT's but switched to the Kayano Gel 20 this year as the 20 has the best pronation control. The color choices really need to improve, however. I bought black only because the vivid bright multi-color shoes look garish and ridiculous. I hope that Asics color choices have some normalcy next year.

I do not like these. Less cushion for my feet. I miss the gel kayano 16, 17, and 18. Those were the best. I don't understand changing a good thing. If I would have known they were going to drastically change this shoe, I would have bought all I could in my size before the gel kayano 19 came out.

I have tried both Gel-Kayano's and Gel-Nimbus by Ascic and prefer the Gel-Kayanos. They are extremely comfortable! I can't wait to put them on after a day of high heels. I walk 4-6 miles a day and even hike in them without a problem.

Amazing shoes and I am so happy to find this in black with my favorite colors as accents. I am 65 and have hip and knee problems. These shoes with the right arch support for my flat feet are heaven. Because they are black, I can wear them to work. I now wear them all the time. Before I had these shoes, I was in constant pain and was having trouble walking. Now I walk in adorable shoes (because of the colors) that have the support and cushion I need to avoid aggravating the problem as I work to improve my flexibility and strength - and I can walk for exercise now. The difference is amazing. This gives me so much hope. I JUST WISH SOMEONE SOLD 100% COTTON SOCKS THESE DAYS!!! I am not interested in all the reasons given for the new blend socks. I just want to be able to get quality 100% cotton socks again!! How can an entire industry let us down like that?

I LOVE this shoes. I feel like I'm running/walking on cushions when I'm wearing them. I've always been a fan of Asics but these are fantastic. They have extra cushion and nice arch support, which is important if your feet pronate. I will definitely by these shoes again.
