Asics Gel-Kayano 20 - Black/White/Gold

Since 1993, which witnessed the birth of the renowned Kayano, Asics has produced over 18 million pairs across the world. Today, the Kayano exists as the most popular and successful example of Asics’ philosophy and commitment to technical excellence.

As the recipient of consistent technological developments over a twenty year period and winner of numerous industry awards and accolades, it now stands proudly at number 20 with FluidRide and FluidFit technology as its latest advancement.

However, this might be a good time to mention that the technology for which the Kayano is famed, and which took it to the top of the running shoe popularity charts and kept it there, haven’t been abandoned for the sake of innovation and modernisation.

The Kayano, renowned for its blend of support, cushioning, and plush fit still comes with the Impact Guidance System (I.G.S.), which cleverly allows for shoe components from rear to midfoot and forefoot work together effectively to allow the body to perform in a natural manner. Also still incorporated in the 20th version is GEL, Asics’ most famous of technologies and located in the rearfoot and forefoot to counter shock during the impact and toe-off phases.

In the name of progress, though, which demonstrates Asics’ ability and willingness for innovation, FluidFit technology has been introduced to the Kayano 20, replacing the Biomorphic Fit Upper seen in previous versions. FluidFit consists of a webbing of stretchy overlays along the midfoot and forefoot for a more adaptive and personalised fit.

Whatever the itineration, Asics’ continually strive to update all shoes in their range, so the fact that number 20 has received new technology is nothing out of the ordinary. What can be seen as a cause for celebration, though, is the release of special edition colourways of the Kayano 20 in commemoration of the anniversary.

Asics also account for the fact that a woman’s foot anatomy is slightly different to that of a man’s, which further demonstrates the brand’s commitment to attentiveness in the design and production of their running shoes. To make allowances for this, not only does the Kayano 20 have a gender-specific fit and cushioning, the women’s version has an offset 3mm higher than the men’s model.
