This is my third pair of Asics shoes purchased primarily for purposes of exercise walking. I am older, 78, and a bit overweight. They provide excellent support, cushioning for the feet and relieve stress on my hip and knee joints. Furthermore, they look good enough on my feet that I often wear them levis and other such casual pants. They will go with me to Italy where I will do considerable walking.
I'd worn my prior shoes a bit too long and had knee pain after every run. Literally, since the first time wearing these shoes my knee pain is gone. The stability and comfort is fantastic. These are well designed shoes and my legs and knees have never felt better.
I’ve been wearing Kayanos for 12 years and they’re the best shoe I’ve ever owned. I do a lot of urban hiking and go through two pair per year. I then retire them and use them on dirt trails.
these are light, comfortable and the gel makes exercising on hard surfaces less stressful on well used joints.
