It is no secret that my favorite running shoe is ASICS GEL-KAYANO…

What makes GEL-KAYANO 30 so special?

The new GEL-KAYANO 30 takes stability and comfort to a whole new high level – with the new 4D GUIDANCE SYSTEM™ for increased support and Pure Gel™ for even softer landing – and you can take it from me, I need the support and softness in one shoe, and I get that perfectly well with new GEL-KAYANO 30. With my over-pronation due to flat feet and sometimes sore knees in long runs, I feel very relaxed and comfortable with the enhanced features.

What makes GEL-KAYANO 30 so comfortable?

The new GEL-KAYANO 30 has been improved with a 4mm height, which has very much improved the comfort level of ASICS most iconic running shoe. The shoe features FlyteFoam Blast+ECO Foam in the midsole, which works to absorb the shock of each landing when running. This is important when it comes to feeling comfortable while running. Also, I should absolutely mention the toe space; your toes have enough space to wriggle, and not feel squeezed.

What makes GEL-KAYANO 30 so supportive?

ASICS have incorporated the new 4D GUIDANCE SYSTEM™ into GEL-KAYANO 30, and I am quite psyched about this. What an incredible stability it provides, just as I thought GEL-KAYANO just couldn’t get more supportive, but yes, it’s possible, and this added feature makes the running shoe feel as one with my feet.

4D Guidance System™ is a new pure gel technology, which adapts to your feet and increases the shock absorption.

Which pronation is GEL-KAYANO designed for?

GEL-KAYANO 30 is an excellent lightweight running shoe, great for neutral runners and perfect for over-pronators, such as myself.
