Asics Kayano Shoes Make Running Even Better


Running is my passion I love to hate. Nothing feels better than hitting that pavement and spending a few miles alone with myself; pushing myself, and resetting myself after a hard day. My body, however, has other ideas. There is no doubting the physical strain running can place on a body, especially the joints. I do my best to take care of my body, and that includes investing in the right running wear, especially shoes.

I’ve always preferred Asics running shoes ever since my mileage became something to be proud of. The first time I felt I could call myself a runner was when I put on my first pair of new Asics. When I started running, I thought any old pair of running shoes could do. My feet quickly told me otherwise. My knees and hips may have mentioned something as well. My feet though, they forced me to do my research and determined Asics running shoes were the best fit for us.

As the mileage added up I would diligently purchase my new Asics. I t was a well-earned treat, and really part of the equipment I needed to be the runner I could be. Gel Kayanos have always been my favorite so I was very excited to try out the new Asics Gel Kayano 19.

I have to say, these are super comfortable and supportive. They’ve improved the upper fit, as impossible as that seems. The shoe is also lighter by half an ounce compared to the previous light weight versions. I have to say I’m probably most excited about the redesigned upper. It’s made entirely of a four-way stretch mesh and just wraps both sides of the foot while remaining breathable. I also enjoy the more secure feel with the improved memory foam. The design of the shoes remains classic Asics style without overwhelming it with neon colors.

Some highlights of the Asics Gel Kayano 19 include:

• Lighter weight, only 10.3 ounces for men’s and 8.9 ounces for women’s
• New support with the specific Guidance Trusstic System
• Guidance Line technology enhances gait repeatability
• Biomorphic Fit Upper made with four-way stretch mesh
• Personal Heel Fit (P.H.F.) now with two layers of memory foam

I don’t want to say these new Asics are life changing, I mean, the previous Asics are some of the best running shoes out there. The improvements they’ve made on this latest version just make life that much more fun running.

Best Asics Running Shoes


I remember my first pair of running shoes. It was freshman year in high school, and the track coach encouraged me to join the team. I’d always been active as a kid, with gymnastics, swimming and dance, but I had yet to try out running for greater distances than ten laps around the gym on a rainy day in PE class. I had no idea what to look for in a shoe, and based my choice completely on how the shoe looked and if it fit within the budget my mother had given me.

Now, I realize there is more to a running shoe than just looks! There is a lot to consider when purchasing a new pair of running shoes. A person needs to think about what type of running they are doing, if they over-pronate and how high or low their arch is. Also, a person should like the way their shoes look. Luckily, Asics makes fantastic running shoes that can fit all of these requirements.

Some of the best Asics running shoes include the Asics GEL-Kayano 19 the Asics GT-1000, and the Ascis GT-2000. These are newly revamped and improved models of their much loved running shoes. These models are some of the best Asics running shoes and there is one for every type of runner. And what’s great is you don’t have to choose between looks and comfort!

The Asics GEL-Kayano 19 features an award winning style. It has excellent cushioning and support. It also has Cool Upper Mesh for breathable comfort during those hot runs. It also comes in a variety of fun color combinations so you get style, comfort and support.

The Asics GT-1000 is definitely a runner’s shoe. It is true to size and well built. Runners who are mild to moderate over pronaters will find the structure and support of this shoe perfect for them. This is an award winning, light weight, redesigned version of Asic’s much loved running shoe. This model is available in pink for the breast cancer awareness edition.

The Asics GT-2000 is a great shoe for neutral runners all the way to severe overpronaters. There is a larger Gel Pad in this shoe than in other models. It features a double layer of memory foam and even has a removable insole to accommodate orthotics. It also has Comfort Dry Sockliner that provides cushioning while keeping feet drier. Definitely a plus on those long runs!

I love how I can still fulfill my want for a great looking shoe and have the support and stability I need.



Does anyone remember their first pair of athletic shoes? Probably not, but you probably do remember your first pair of really good athletic shoes. The ones that you wore until the sole was falling off and your big toe had punched through the top.

Anyone that is a runner remembers that pair of Asics, the ones that fit like a great pair of jeans, which were wrapped with duct tape around the ball of the shoe covering a hole in the bottom. That same pair of shoes that saw you through your first 5k race, the one where you barely finished, just got you through a 10K where you finished in the front of the pack.

Asics has been a reputable name in the athletic shoe game in the U.S. since 1977, when Mr. Kihachiro Onitsuka a Japanese businessman, transformed his basketball shoe company, into the athletic shoe dynasty we know today. The name ASICS is based on a Latin phrase “Anima Sana In Corpore Sano”. This translated means “A Sound Mind in a Sound Body” which was Onisuka’s belief that the best way to a healthy and happy lifestyle is to promote total health and fitness.

Today, the company still strives to bring harmony to the body and soul. This philosophy is evident in their products like the Asics Gel DS Trainer. This trainer, so light weight you barely feel them on your feet, has great stability to protect you through whatever training you want to engage. The beauty of this newest trainer is they are suitable for a beginning runner, yet its stability is suitable for a race veteran. One report stated that the Asics Gel running shoe was the most worn shoe of participants in the Ironman Triathlon.

Today ASICS Gel running shoes upper layers are thinner, with more ventilation for your toes, making the shoe ultra-lightweight. This breathing capability means less need for washing, giving the shoe a longer life span. The Asics Gel DS trainer changes more with each new edition, more than any of the Asics Gel running shoes. The company’s website claims that the Asics designers “mess with” this shoe more than anything they make. Why change this shoe more with each version than any other shoe that Asics makes? I would guess that runners demand more “out of their shoes” than other consumer athletes.

On paper, the shoes available today from Asics sound like they make your feet enjoy the workout. I guess the only way to find out is to buy a pair of Asics Gel DS Trainers and take them for a test run.
