Advice for Road Runners: The ASICS Men's Gel-Kayano 30 in the Waterscape/Electric Lime colourway offer the highest levels of cushioning, with an intuitive support system.
This makes them an excellent choice for long distance runs, aerobic base miles, and recover days.
The majority of the Gel-Kayano 30 midsole features FF BLAST PLUS ECO foam. A soft and energetic cushioning material. Ultra soft PureGEL sits in within the heel area. Together, they should deliver a very plush underfoot experience.
ASICS' 4D GUIDANCE SYSTEM offers intuitive support. This is because it adapts to each runner's biomechanics in a unique way. For example, if your posture changes as you fatigue in a run, the support helps keep you in better alignment.
This adaptive system is the result of wide base nets; an increased heel bevel that smooths out transitions; midsole shaping that slows down pronation; and an energetic medial foam that resupinates the foot, and returns it to a neutral position.
The ASICS Gel-Kayano 30 running shoes upper is made from an engineered knit material. This should offer a lot of comfort, support, and breathability.
Running shoes such as the ASICS Men's Gel-Kayano 30 should feel very cushioned and supportive. As a result, they're ideal for runners looking to take maximum stress off their feet and legs on their daily runs.
We expect you'll find they perform at their best on slower to steady paced miles. Such as easy recovery runs, steady aerobic efforts, and long slow runs. While there's a lot of running shoes that are suited to this type of effort, these are likely to be one of the best.
Shoe size is a personal preference and everyone's feet are different, but we want to ensure you avoid any pain or discomfort from bruised toenails, rubbing, blistering or pins and needles.
Your running shoes should have enough width to allow you to spread your toes and should have some space at the front (we recommend having a half to one thumb's width of space from the end of your longest toe to the front of your running shoes).
This usually means that your running shoe will be at least a half size bigger than your regular shoe size though this can vary from brand to brand.
The technical features above are based on a men's US size 9 shoe.
