Now in its 17th rendition, Asics’ iconic Gel Kayano has shaped up to be the best yet. The Gel Kayano 17 ($140) now features a full-length Guidance Line that promotes gait efficiency and responsiveness while reducing weight. Additional improvements include dual density cushioning, ComforDry sockliner and anatomical Asymmetrical Lacing Design that follows the foots natural design for an improved fit. After trying our pair for weeks of circuit training, treadmills and the occasional outside run we can endorse the improvements. The shoe isn’t a featherweight, but its weight reduction (compared to previous editions) is immediately noticeable right out of the box and the improved heel cushioning provides for a plush ride. Comes in 3 colorways, an all-new black option and limited edition colors.
