Whether you are training for a marathon or wearing them to walk the dog, the ASICS GEL-KAYANO® 29 will bring you premium stability and a plush experience making it one of the best stability shoes available.


  • Upper: The soft and supportive recycled stretch knit upper gives the Kayano a sleek profile and superior breathability and comfort. Our testers loved how the new upper because of its comfort and ability to fit a variety of footshapes in our ASICS GEL-KAYANO 29 review.
  • Midsole: Providing support and stability for people who overpronate or have flexible arches, the GEL-KAYANO® 29 features a LITETRUSS™ placed on the midsole’s inside angle that is designed to help keep your foot from rolling too far inward during your stride. The updated shoe also features a low-profile external heel counter that cradles your foot to keep it secure and provide rearfoot support.
  • Outsole: This newest version still features ASICS’ signature GEL technology that absorbs impact and feels amazing underfoot.

What’s New

The ASICS GEL-KAYANO® 29 has an updated midsole with FF BLAST™ PLUS foam that provides a more energized rebound, yet keeps the shoe lightweight. ASICS added 2 mm of cushioning to the stack height of the shoe to provide more cushioning and decreased the heel-to-toe drop to 10 mm for both men’s and women’s versions to provide a smoother and more stable ride. Finally, they modernized the upper with an engineered knit to improve the shoe’s breathability and comfort.

Who It’s Best For

The ASICS GEL-KAYANO® 29 is best for runners who want a lot of cushion and bounce in a stability shoe. It works great for those who have flexible ankles, overpronate or want some extra support.

Why You’ll Love It

You will love how stable, lightweight and cushioned the ASICS GEL-KAYANO® 29 is for your walks and runs.


At least 50% of the ASICS GEL-KAYANO® 29 main upper material is made with recycled materials to reduce waste and carbon emissions. The sockliner is produced with the solution dyeing process that reduces water usage by approximately 33% and carbon emissions by approximately 45% compared to the conventional dyeing technology.

I like my 29's. I wish the 4E width was a little wider but it's working. Too I wish shoe companies would have more colors in wide widths. Wearing only black or gray gets boring.

Kayanos cured my hip problems.

jmr 7 months ago Verified Purchase

I used to routinely run about 35 miles per week and I wore neutral cushioned running shoes. I would wear the softest ones I could find. Unfortunately I developed hip problems and now exclusively use an elliptical trainer for exercise. The neutral cushioned shoes which I loved for running hurt my hips on the elliptical. I changed to stability shoes and the Kayanos are by far the best. Besides stability they also provide cushioning a nice combination. My hip problems are gone and I'm happily working out again. Kayanos are the best and I highly recommend them.

These shoes are so comfortable I went back and bought a second pair because I'm on my feet for 12 hours a day and haven't had any pain with these. Thanks Fleet Feet
