It's been a minute since I've worn Asics GEL-Kayano sneakers. When I first picked up running a few years ago
, I got a pair of these bad boys because the person at the running store told me they'd be better than the Nike Frees I was wearing at the time. Theses Asics look big and clunky, but feel supportive on my foot. Unlike other cushioned shoes, which tend to be lightweight, these are hefty. I wore the Asics GEL-Kayano 25
on a few runs (between three and five miles), and really liked how they felt when my foot hit the pavement. They have a springy quality to them, but also feel substantially supportive. Since I usually pronate (run with my weight on the inside edge of my feet), it seemed like they almost course-corrected my feet, but some people might not like that.
