ASICS Gel-Kayano 26


The ASICS Kayano has been protecting your run for more than a quarter century, and it's one of the most popular ASICS running shoes ever. Now, the GEL-Kayano 26 leads the next 25 years.

ASICS redesigned its popular GEL cushioning system for the 26th edition of the shoe. The new GEL extends closer to the midfoot and is visible on the lateral side of the shoe, but it still absorbs and disperses impact for a softer landing.

The Kayano has long been a great shoe for overpronators, and the GEL-Kayano 26 is no exception. ASICS used a firm foam compound on the inside of the shoe to help prevent excessive inward roll, and they added a stiff guidance system under the midfoot to give it better structure and support.

An external heel counter keeps your foot locked in, and a classic lacing system gives you the ability to fine tune your fit.

Fleet Feet runners tested and reviewed the ASICS GEL-Kayano 26, and they love it for its supportive feel and consistent ride.

Whether you’re an overpronator or not, the ASICS GEL-Kayano 26 provides a long-lasting, comfortable ride.

asics gel kayano 26

Fits perfect based on other Asics products I've purchased. They are super comfortable and supportive. The thing I would love for Asics and other big brand is offer more colors in the EE width

Never looked back

I started wearing ASICS when I was 30 years old and getting into running. It’s now been 10+ years. I’ve run countless races - from 5k to 10k and eventually making it to a half marathon and my first marathon! All the way I’ve relied on my trusty ASICS running shoes - on roads, gravel, treadmills and through rain, snow and sunny days. Can’t imagine life without them!
