I'm a runner and have been wearing gel kayanos for many years. Last year's design - the gel Kayano 22 were a huge flop from the poor sizing,poor fit and poor quality. Very disappointing! This year's model - the 23's - are an improvement but have a very tight and uncomfortable toe box. My solution has been to search the internet for and to stock up on the gel kayano 21's. The last good gel kayano ever made.

I have worn Gel Kayanos since ASICs was labeling them in the teens and the 23 is the most uncomfortable Gel Kayano to date. The sole feels like ASICs forgot to add the gel that made previous models comfortable to wear, and the toe box feels narrower than in the earlier models.

I've been wearing the Gel-Kayano for at least 8-10 years. I dragged my feet purchasing this year's style because I didn't care for the color choices. I'm also disappointed that they've switched to more traditional lace positioning (from the previously angled style). Overall, these turned out to be as comfortable as I expected, although I don't think they have as good arch support as they used to. The color turned out to be slightly darker grey than pictured, so I was okay with this color.
