Top Reasons to Buy the Women’s ASICS GEL-Kayano 23

Get ready to fly down the pavement with the GEL-Kayano 23’s innovative FlyteFoam™ midsole construction. 55% lighter than standard EVA foam midsoles, the organic fibers adapt to each stride and allow the shoe to bounce back to its original shape after impact. This dynamic cushioning system will give your feet the most personalized padding you’ve ever felt and expertly absorb shock so you can take your runs to new lengths.

Want that barefoot feeling without sacrificing the support? The GEL-Kayano 23 employs new Convergence GEL Technology to mimic the natural tissues of your foot, so you can run without the impediments of clunky cushions. Feel more closely connected to the ground and take advantage of that barely-there feeling that will give you the energy to run wild mile after mile.

A multi-directional stretch mesh upper wraps your foot in glove-like comfort to deliver the snuggest fit yet. Not only will this mesh respond to each bend and flex of your stride, but minimal forefoot overlays won’t restrict your range of motion - ensuring you get to run exactly the way you want.

What People Are Saying About the Women’s ASICS GEL-Kayano 23

Many reviewers with over-pronation problems said the GEL-Kayano 23 significantly reduced or eliminated their pain during both long and short runs. The shock absorption capabilities combine with the extra stability cushioning to take the pressure off runners with flat feet, giving you a completely pain-free ride.

Searching for an all-in-one shoe? Look no further, because ASICS has got you covered. Women agreed the GEL-Kayano 23 works perfectly for both road running and high intensity interval training classes at the gym. You won’t have to worry about switching shoes between your workouts because the GEL-Kayano 23 is built for versatility to match your active lifestyle.

If you don’t think sports and style go hand-in-hand, think again-the GEL-Kayano 23 combines exceptional technology with stunning aesthetics to give you a killer total package. Several reviewers noted the new color schemes were much sleeker than previous versions and they felt comfortable wearing their pair with casual work clothes, as well.

Women’s ASICS GEL-Kayano 23 Updates

The 23rd iteration of the GEL-Kayano features some considerable modifications that both ASICS fanatics and newcomers will appreciate. A FlyteFoam™ midsole gives you a leg up on the competition, as it’s 55% lighter than EVA foam midsoles used in many running shoes. Not only does it shave off a few ounces, but it also allows for a more responsive ride that keeps you connected to the pavement at all times. Overpronators will rejoice at the added overlays on the midfoot. These modifications encourage a correct running posture and disperse the shock of harsh impacts. Last but not least, the heel counter is narrower than previous versions to lock the foot firmly into place.

Size and Fit of the Women’s ASICS GEL-Kayano 23

General Size and Fit

The Gel-Kayano 23 is offered in one width size: women’s normal. It features a 13mm heel-to-toe drop, and it’s recommended to buy a half size up from your true foot size.


For a sturdy, breathable fit, the FluidFit® stretch mesh upper adapts to the shape of your foot as you run. The engineered material is constructed with seamless technology, so your comfort and flexibility aren’t limited by constrictive stitching. And for an added bonus, the Comfordry™ sockliner keeps your feet cool and dry through innovative moisture-wicking technology.


Packed with layers of responsive cushioning, the GEL-Kayano 23 excels at keeping your feet content without ever slowing you down. The incredibly lightweight FlyteFoam™ technology works in correspondence with Convergence GEL® to deliver comfort fit for a queen. Gradient cushioning ensures a slightly softer feeling in the heel and firmer padding in the forefoot, allowing you to achieve strong push-offs and shock-absorbent landings without any problem.


Guide your stride with the GEL-Kayano 23’s signature Guidance Line. The rubber line along the bottom of the outsole smoothes the transition from takeoff to landing, ensuring your gait remains steady throughout your entire session. A combination of High Abrasion Rubber and blown rubber will protect your feet from rough surfaces and keep your shoes free from the wear-and-tear of everyday use.
