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.

your scoring system

Your shoes are awesome. However, your on-line rating system really should have some indication of 1=worst and 5=best.

Amazing Customer Service

I absolutely love Fleet Feet. I discovered the store when I lived in CA and purchased all of my running gear at the Sacramento store. Now that I’m in PA, I’ve found the Pittsburgh store (at least on the phone as we are in a pandemic) just as helpful and professional. The staff are all very knowledgeable and will find the appropriate shoe for your feet. This is the only place to shop if you want to ensure that your feet remain healthy and happy.
