Read our review of the ASICS Gel-Kayano 30


For 30 years, ASICS has been revolutionizing comfort, technology and stability to make the ASICS Gel-Kayano 30 the best version yet.

The brand new 4D Guidance System™ provides adaptive stability that works with your movement to provide the smoothest, most cushioned and most comfortable ride out there. ASICS widened the base to give you more stability, beveled the heel to improve initial ground impact, and added an arched recovery pod on the inside of the midsole to help position your arch for a more balanced stride.

Designers then added fan-favorite FF Blast™ Plus Eco foam to the midsole, which gives it a super cushioned and energetic ride, while the PureGel cushioning in the rearfoot absorbs impact. ASICS also added 4 mm of cushioning to make your run even more comfortable.

The plush and comfortable engineered mesh upper provides support and breathability to give you the perfect fit. One of our runners even stated that it felt as comfortable as her house slippers in our ASICS Gel-Kayano 30 review.

Stability never felt more comfortable than in the ASICS Gel-Kayano 30.

What’s New

The ASICS Gel-Kayano 30 was a major overhaul for the 30th anniversary of the Kayano series. ASICS replaced their Litetruss™ system for stability with their 4D Guidance System that, based on biomedical research, stabilizes the foot with a medial foam unit and new geometry of the shoe.

Designers added FF Blast Plus Eco foam that uses 24% bio-based foam and is softer and lighter than ever before. They also upgraded to a PureGel rearfoot unit that is 65% softer than ASICS’ traditional gel cushioning. Plus, they added 4 mm of stack height to the midsole to make it softer and smoother as you run.

ASICS updated the upper to give you a more premium experience by using an engineered stretch knit material that gives you better structure and support without the need for bulky overlays. It is more breathable too.

Who It’s Best For

The ASICS Gel-Kayano 30 is great for beginners or experienced runners and walkers alike. It works best for those who have flexible arches or overpronate and like a super cushioned and plush ride. This shoe feels amazing whether you are running a marathon or just need a good pair of sneakers to play with your kids.

Why You’ll Love It

You will love how the ASICS Gel-Kayano 30 provides luxurious cushioning and support for every run or walk.

Great feel and a great ride. Stable but with excellent cushioning. The shoe felt a little higher for about 30 minutes. This is my fourth in the series

Great stability shoes for over probation!

Cvwool 8 months ago Verified Purchase

My husband and I recently started training for a 5K. Quickly I realized I over probate. My feet shins and knees aches so I did a bunch of research. I read mixed a lot of mixed reviews on the ASICS Kayano 30. I went to Fleet Feet and tried on a slew of stability shoes before trying on the Kayano 30 but when I did I fell in love with the support. I’ve since taken them out on a couple of runs. My feet shins and knees are much relieved.

Great shoe

I love how they feel. I tried several different brands and this one stood out as far as confort. I suffer from knee pain so let's see if after a couple of miles in them the pain goes away.

Love the comfort and support!

Filipe 10 months ago Verified Purchase

Love the comfort and support of these shoes. Overall the shoes feel more like a supportive soft glove when you slip them on your feet. When running I can definitely feel the soft comfort in the heel and support in the arch yet they don’t feel heavy at all to me despite the size. The toe box feels fairly normal like many shoes in this category I’ve tried but as expected. I like them so much that I’m thinking of getting a second pair today!
