How does one argue with the ladies who’ve made the ASICS Women’s GEL-Kayano 15 Running Shoe the most popular running shoe for women on Amazon.com? The answer: You can’t.

Ever since ASICS revolutionized running when it introduced gel into its soles, its shoes have just gotten better and better, and with the GEL-Kayano 15, one can’t help but wonder what more ASICS can do to improve on it.

Actually, ASICS did with the release of the GEL-Kayano 16. But yes, the GEL-Kayano 16’s emergence has also meant that prices of the GEL-Kayano 15 have been steadily dropping, always a great plus for any product. And the truth is, many people still consider the GEL-Kayano 15 the flagship of the ASICS’ iconic Kayano line.

Mass appeal

What does set the GEL-Kayano 15 apart is that, with this shoe, ASICS seems to have chosen to veer off the path too many manufacturers have taken, of overspecialization. Instead, it latched onto the fact that up to eighty-five percent of people have moderate overpronation, or the tendency of the foot to roll too far inward while walking or running, and came out with a shoe that helped address a condition that almost everyone has.

Overpronation is caused by low or collapsed arches and by flat feet. Because of the inward rolling of the foot, the shock from striking the ground as one walks or runs is not spread evenly and is instead absorbed by the knees, back and lower leg. The uneven absorption and distribution of the shock caused by overpronation is also one of the main causes of injuries to the foot and to the other parts of the body affected.

Stable stride

Stability shoes, like the ASICS Women’s GEL-Kayano 15 Running Shoe, are designed with more rigid midsoles and midsole supports to limit the inward roll of the foot and guide it towards a better, more stable gait.

To improve the arch support to vital for overpronators, the GEL-Kayano 15 has the DuoMax dual density midsole and the cutting edge Space Trusstic System that wraps around the arch to guide the heel-to-toe roll of the foot and prevent it from twisting in. The beauty of the Trusstic System is that it is gender specific and comes in 15 different shapes to conform to individuals’ different requirements. It only goes to show how much ASICS takes its users’ needs seriously.

ASICS also made the cushioning of the GEL-Kayano 15 more generous by increasing the gel in the Heel and Forefoot Gel Cushioning system it used in the GEL-Kayano 14. This makes for softer heel and toe strikes.

But the feature that truly marks the ASICS Women’s GEL-Kayano 15 Running Shoe as a trailblazer is its Asymmetrical Lacing System, which conforms to the contours of the foot’s upper, bony part. It does take a short while to get used to but the benefits of this lacing style is better fit and less abrasion points, thus more protection and comfort for the foot.

The other features of the ASICS Women’s GEL-Kayano 15 Running Shoe, such as the memory foam that allows the heel collar to wrap exactly around your foot, and the Biomorphic Fit inserts that adjust to the natural expansion of your foot during exercise, all add to its reputation as the total runner’s running shoe.
