The Scoop: The 20th version of the ASICS GEL-Kayano flirts with perfection, welcoming performance upgrades that runners (and their feet) can appreciate.
This version integrates FluidFit on the upper, which stretches in multiple directions, to cater to the foot’s natural movement in an effort to support it with a glove-like fit. The midsole also includes an update via FluidRide, which offers bouncy, durable cushioning.
The GEL-Kayano 20 is built with an exoskeletal heel counter that cradles and supports the heel. The rear and forefoot areas include shock-absorbing material known as GEL Cushioning to minimize impact.
