Asics Gel-Kayano 20 -

Outside of your lucky college sweatshirt that seems to help your beleaguered team win those close games, you don't have things that last 20 years. Asics is about to change that. The Men's Gel-Kayano 20 Running Shoe celebrates two full decades of happy running and starts looking towards celebrating the silver jubilee of running. Updated for the modern ages with FluidFit uppers for a positively perfect fit and FluidRide in the middle so your long-running relationship won't suffer, this shoe takes the miles and asks for more.  What else do you want from a (running) partner?
FluidFit uppers combine multi-directional stretch mesh with stretch reinforcements to give your foot a custom fit the first time you wear the shoe. The ComforDry sockliner coddles your foot if you're going sockless, and the antimicrobial treatment won't leave you shoes stinking after a 10-mile run. Um, you, however, do need to hit the showers before heading out again. Midsole magic makes every footstep feel fantastic. The FluidRide midsole takes away weight without compromising cushioning or bounce-back for a soft and responsive run. Gel underneath your forefoot and heel cushions your steps so you're not losing fillings on every outing.
The shoe's exo-skeleton contains the stabilizing heel clutching system to optimize fit and reduce slippage in back. Dynamic DuoMax isn't from an ancient comic book, but rather works with the Guidance Trusstic System to provide torsional rigidity and limit over-pronation, all the while keeping the shoe softer than your aging sweatshirt. DuraSponge and AHAR outsole softens the blow of your footstrike yet stands up to the pounding so your foot doesn't wiggle all over the road.

These were a gift for my husband. He uses them more for walking but has run in them also. There was very little "breaking in" needed. Also, they are good for flat feet.

Love these shoes - very comfortable and cushioned for workouts and daily wear. I wear a 13EEE normally, but ordered these in 14EEEE. They are wonderful for my hard to fit feet.

Great, lightweight, very comfortable. Good arch support. Runs a bit smaller and you are better off to order 1/2 size up to have better toe room. Highly recommend it.
