Asics Gel Kayano 18 Women's Review

  • 4.8 / 5
    • The good:
      Functional, medically inclined, comfortable, looks good
    • The bad:
      Needs to break in, poor quality control

    The Asics Gel Kayano 18 is a gender specific running shoe which has been specifically designed for all female runners and athletes out there. This is one of those versions which has been proven to embody and posses all the ASICS new Guidance Line optimal gait when it comes to their shoe productions. It also has the shock-attenuating Discrete Heel Unit, DuoMax Support System, as well as the modernized asymmetrical lacing system.


    Working out, exercising, having a day at the gym, going for a walk, and all sorts of bodily activities are supported and encouraged by the Asics Gel Kayano 18. It provides comfort not only for the feet but also for the hamstring muscles and the ankles. The Kayano 18 has the ability to stop the feet from experiencing pounding most especially when doing treadmill exercises.


    Generally, the Asics has been consistently making running shoes which are not only sold over-the-counter but which are also in a way recommended or prescribed. It has the medical benefits that can treat slowly but surely all those with issues regarding their feet like chronic tendonitis, overpronators, calluses, and things like that.


    People have complimented the shoe on how it can be flexible as even if you are just an amateur runner or have been doing it for years, it seems to work amazing on both ends. So even if you use it for work while standing and walking for long hours or use it as a training gear while running 4-7 miles everyday, the Asics Gel Kayano 18 will not disappoint.


    On the negative, breaking in and getting comfortable with the shoes is not that easy to do. It can take some time before the Kayano 18 really embraces the size of your feet. But in the long run, you will be thankful that it did slowly but surely. There have been scenarios however, wherein the process of breaking in is too long that the person wearing it started having blisters or swollen feet. Maybe that is a case of having the wrong size or something like that.


    About the sturdiness and the lightweight quality, it is really impressive. However, the durability is somewhat unflattering due to the fact that it can get worn up easily in some cases. There have been complaints about the inner sole getting flaky or spotty so fast that it gets inconvenient to wear.


    Nevertheless, if you are really lucky and the Kayano 18 worked perfectly fine on you, it must be expected that it will give an enormous arch support that will definitely shock-absorb. To be honest, if you are clueless about running shoes and go out for a canvass, it will be most likely for the sales people to recommend the Asics Kayano 18 without a doubt. Why? Because aside from the fact that they are ultra comfortable for majority of people, it is also a legit brand that can not only bring added support for the activities that you do, it can also correct the medical issues of the feet, in the long run.
