    Asics GEL-Kayano 18 Men’s encourages a perfect jogging experience anytime and anywhere. It offers the top of the line features such as the Biomorphic Fit Technology which ensures the breathability of the upper lining. It even ensures that the feet are comfortable and refreshed as it also reduces the irritation that the feet might encounter. The GEL-Kayano 18 makes every hike, jog, walk and other bodily activities more enjoyable and exciting. The Kayano 18 is a very nice improvement from the Kayano 17 as it offers the innovations which are highly noticeable. The Kayano 18 is actually shock absorbent and can prevent any sprain, fatigue, or injury even if faced with a stressful situation.


    In comparison to the competitor brand such as the Nimbus, the Kayano 18 is said to give more of the midsole support. When tried for walking, the Nimbus is said to have a softer and more cushiony feel, as for the meantime, the Kayano 18 offers a firmer quality. The midsole of the Kayano 18 give just the right amount of ventilation and do not feel as if the feet are confined or suffocated. People who have problems with their feet such as flat feet can use the Kayano 18 as it gives the extra heel on its back portion. That is what allows them to feel more comfortable whenever walking.


    The Asics GEL-Kayano 18 has lots of added gel cushioning that makes it possible to resist impact forces. It is known as the external Heel Clutching System in which the support for the heel is elevated. The back portion of the feet is also locked into place and made to be sturdier. It interferes with the possibility of hurting the feet whenever a hard road or a dangerous surface lies beneath. It may not actually be a trademark shoe or a unique brand version, however, if talking about the updates it made, it is actually known for being the “Best Update”. The toe box part is also made to be extra roomy that generates the overall refreshing feeling. So even those who are used to running long distances and have cases of moderate to overpowering, is sure to love the Kayano 18. Even those who just want a shoe that can give them the protection and can help avoid the occurrence of knee problems, these one surely has help to give.


    Longevity is also not a problem. It tends to exceed the life span expectations most people have. Other than that, even if it is your first time to use the Asics GEL-Kayano 18 and has been using a different brand for a very long time, this running shoe is pretty impressive. The comfortable quality it has comes right out of the box and does not even have the breaking in process which is present in other running shoes. These shoes are not only the best when it comes to functionality because style is also a strong point of Asics. Thus, making this one a real stunner that is productive and progressive at the same time and there is no doubt about it.
