Asics Gel-Kayano 21 Lite-Show | Worth The Hype?

July 16, 2015

                  If you are an avid runner then you have most likely heard of Asics. This happened to be my first pair of Asics after being persuaded by my brother to purchase them for years. I run an average of 40 miles a month on asphalt and trails and it wasn’t until I slipped and fell while running down a street that I thought maybe I should look into these Asics that everyone talks about.

I chose to purchase the “Lite-Show” Gel-Kayano’s. The “Lite-Show” simply means they are super reflective and have pieces of glow in the dark rubber on the sides of the soles. Perfect, as I can run late into the evenings someday’s with busy traffic. I ordered up a half size per reviews and recommendations but when I received them they were way to large, so I exchanged them for my usually size 8 and they fit great!

I have put about 20 miles on them so far and was very surprised to learn that there is no breaking-in phase! The gel foot bed is just like what it would seem, like walking on gel! So comfy! They are more flexible then any running shoe I have ever owned! Most importantly, I am no longer worried about running down gravely hills with the amazing grip they offer.

The true test for me was going to be the arch support, I have super high arches and the number one sign that you are not getting a enough arch support is aching knee’s. I am happy to report I have had no knee issues!

My Quick Take: I’m hooked! These are worth the price. With the great arch support along with the comfort of the gel foot bed, I see myself only purchasing Asics from here on out.

I purchased mine off Amazon.com for $129.95. Asicsamerica.com is now selling them for $134 from $170.

What Asics have you tried? Tell me in the comments. I would love other Asics Recommendations!

Happy Running!
