Comments: These shoes are awesome. I had a terrible case of shin splints. I tried every conceivable therapy including rest, NSAID's, high dose Prednisone, walking boot for a month, physical therapy, acupuncture, all to no avail. I spent the whole summer doing nothing and still had pain. I saw a review about these shoes and how they helped someone else so I figured what did I have to lose. Within 2 days I saw a tremendous improvement and now just over a week later I'm back doing my workouts all with no pain. I won't take these off. I wear them to work. It's unbelievable. I'm going to order a couple more pairs.

Comments: I have been running on Kayanos for over 15 years ..... I have gone through two pairs of the 18's ..... Good performance but for soem reason the quality of the material is not what it use to be... after just one month on both shoes the inside line at the heel disintegrated ..... never happened before.

Comments: I have the Kayano 18 and am very happy with them after about 1 month. (run about 30 mi per week, 59 years old, 150 lbs). Stable, lots of cushioning, supportive. I did not realize how bad my last shoes were until I tried these. I had to order a half size larger than past New Balance shoes.
Comments: Awesome shoe! I weigh about 275 and am new to regular running (obviously). I have been doing 2.5 miles almost every day for the last couple of weeks wearing some old garbage shoes. Bad idea. I had no clue that shoes mattered regarding gait and it left me with a brutal case of sore heels and what I learned was plantar fasciitis being the severely flat-footed overpronator that I am. Right out of the box, I did my longest and fastest run yet and my feet feel fine now the next day for the first time in a while. I'm an Asics fan, and this seems to be the best of 5 shoes they currently offer for someone with very flat feet (Kayano, 3030, 2170, Evolution and Foundation according to their website). I'm in love. I thought about trying the Brooks Beast if these didn't offer all the support I needed but so far so good, and they look much better to me. I measure at and have worn a 12 all my life, but ordered 12 and 12.5 in these and kept the 12.5. They feel a lot more comfortable in the toebox and actually moved with my foot through its range of motion, the 12 felt cramped in the toes and stiff. Order these a half size bigger than you measure and you'll be in foot heaven. Runningwarehouse.com had the best price on them too that I could find. Thanks so much!
