Gel-Kayano

History

1993

ASICS GEL-KAYANO

The original Kayano utilised the tech of the day — skeletal logo stripes for support, visible THETA GEL in the heel and porous P-GEL in the forefoot. The upper was mesh with Coolmax reinforced by synthetic suede. The original catalog copy didn't mention weight, but it wasn't a feather.

1999

ASICS GEL-KAYANO 4

ASICS branding reached its limit on the fourth Kayano. Relying on synthetic leather rather than suede, along with much the same cushioning and support technology as previous generations. These just happened to be recognisable from space.

2004

ASICS GEL-KAYANO X

The first Kayano since the 1993 original to feature "normal" (i.e. no Ghilly loops) lacing, the Kayano X dropped down in weight thanks to the use of thinner synthetics and a more pared-down upper. Also, the phrase "Biomorphic Upper Fit" entered the ASICS lexicon.

2009

ASICS GEL-KAYANO 15

Asymmetrical lacing found its way to the Kayano line, as well as a new midsole design. Lots to absorb in a flagship runner, but the technical advances were rapidly accepted by the Kayano faithful.

2013

ASICS GEL-KAYANO 18

The lightest Kayano at the time, the Kayano 18 retained all of the advances made, just in a significantly lighter package. Together with a black-on-black option, the Kayano 18 appeared to be a real winner.

2017

ASICS GEL-KAYANO 24

The GEL-KAYANO 24 shoe featured the MetaClutch™ heel counter and redesigned jacquard mesh upper for unparalleled support. Which made it the choice of serious runners looking for structured lightweight cushioning and comfort.

2018

ASICS GEL-KAYANO 25

The GEL-KAYANO™ 25 features FlyteFoam™ Lyte and FlyteFoam™ Propel Technologies, working in parallel to deliver superior protection and enhanced stability no matter the distance.

2019

ASICS GEL-KAYANO 26

The GEL-KAYANO™ 26 is the latest in the Kayano series and is built to give luxurious comfort and improved bounce, featuring GEL™ technology to the forefoot and rear for high-density shock absorption and a comfortable feel over long distances.
