I just had a total ankle replacement in July. I have tried many shoes since my surgery. These are the only ones that allow me to be on my feet at work 11 hours a day. I'm getting another pair. These were recommended by my PT.

I've worn these for three short runs and multiple walks now, and I'm finding them very comfortable and supportive. They are not super cushy, but I can tell a marked difference from my last pair (a cheaper Asics model). They didn't require any breaking in, which was nice.

The shoes are fantastic...they're comfortable, and breathe very well. I recently got a Fitbit and have been stepping in these shoes for 15,000 - 20,000 steps a day (up from a sedentary life style) and they feel fine!

I love my new shoes! Excellent for running distances - incredibly comfortable! I just ran a 5k and 10k this past weekend and was so impressed with how great I felt the entire time! Definitely would recommend to anyone looking for a supportive running shoe!

These shoes are perfect! Great support, I have a lot of knee and hip issues and have been looking for a pair of shoes that allow me run pain free. Not only have these shoes allowed me to run with minimal to no pain, but they are so pretty, too.

Very comfortable light weight shoes. Literature on Asics says to size up a half size which I did and they are perfect. Love the color.

I have been a runner for too many years to admit to. Not like an awesome runner...but I've been torturing myself long enough to just call myself a runner. I've tried it all and have been doing it forever and tried all of the shoes I could to see what would make my running life easier. While my running life is still hard, ASICS GEL-Kayano models always always always do right by me. Good quality shoes are so crucial and the Kayano never let's me down. Ever. I have normal, unremarkable feet which this model seems to be well suited for!

I have had the Kayano shoes in the past. I am between an 8 and an 8.5 in running shoes. I decided to buy the 8.5. I would say that the shoes run true to size. The shoes are comfortable for running or walking. I have worn them for about a month now and put at least 60 miles on them but have no blisters or other pain. The color is bright but I have not tried to use the "glow in the dark" feature yet.

Super cute shoe. I had been looking for a new pair of Asics for a while and just couldn't find the "color" that I was looking for. These are the perfect color combo and fit great.

While I love Asics and these are my sixth pair, I'm puzzled by the sizing here. I just bought a pair of Gel Cumulus Liteshow 15, size 8 and these (Gel Kayano 20) size 8 and they are not the same. Kayano feels half to full size bigger. What's happening?

THE most comfortable sneakers I have ever owned. I feel like I am walking on springy clouds! The reflective properties on the shoe make walking at night a bit safer. I usually wear a size 11 but went up to a size 11.5 to allow for some extra room. I made the right decision and I LOVE my Asics Gel-Kayano!

All around winner! Now I know why the Kayano were the top recommendation by my podiatrist and orthotist for someone foot injuries like me. They provide fashion as well as fantastic support. I am able to comfortably wear an ankle brace on one foot with the shoe and a regular sock on the other. I am always getting compliments on the color. I have big feet (size 11) and they make them look small. Worth the investment.

I do not usually write reviews, but I have to tell you this is one of the most comfortable shoes I have ever bought! Not only that they are a real comment maker - people love the color as do I. Buying from Zappos was so easy and great price!

Amazing Asics. I usually get the Asics Gel-Nimbus but so far I've liked these even better. If they are exposed to light, the silver strips will glow in the dark for about 30 minutes. It's great if you run around sunset.

This is an amazing shoe! Pricey, but everything about it works for me. Color, true to size, built in pronation support, hot lite-show fascinates my great grands; what's not to love?

Love these shoes. I have a rather wide footbed with a high instep. I'm in between sizes (8.5 and 9). I ordered an 8.5 and the fit was perfect. I find these comparable to the Nike Vomero with a neutral shoe with tons of comfortable cushion. Love the reflectivity and the color is a nice mint.

I love these shoes. My trainer wears Asics, but I have been a fan of New Balance. When I saw this color, I had to have them! I get compliments every time I wear them to the gym. Better than the color, though, is the terrific fit -- good toe box room, and solid arch support. Maybe a little loose in the heel, but I just tie them tight.

I bought the Kayano 19 as a replacement to my Asics 1000 and found them to have much better support than the 1000. When I saw the Kayano 20 had come out, I bought these and couldn't be happier. I'm not a long distance runner (average about 3 miles 3 times a week), so I don't know how they hold up for those putting on more miles.

I've been wearing ASICS for years and have always loved them, but once I switched to this shoe, I could feel a complete difference from others before. I discovered that the reason is that my feet are slightly over-pronated and this shoe was fantastic for giving me the support I needed while walking or running.

So sad to be returning these. They are gorgeous shoes. But alas, I have one foot a tad wider than the other and the wider foot isn't comfortable in these. Instead I'm going with the GEL-Nimbus 16, which has a wider mid foot area than these in the standard width sneaker. I'm SO bummed, as I really like the look of these much better. Asics, please offer this shoe in a wide -- then I'd be all over it!

These are so comfortable and the color is gorgeous! After 7 knee surgeries, I need the cushioning that the gel provides. It truly is the only brand of running/walking shoes I own.
