ASICS GEL-KAYANO 29
This one’s for the hardcore runners. The Gel-Kayano 29 adds the FF Blast Plus cushioning ‒ a lighter material that does not forsake padding and protection ‒ in the upper midsole. But its most impressive feature is the Litetruss technology in its medial and the external heel counter; these features work together to give the Gel-Kayano its trademark stability. It is indeed the most stable pair among these four, and is especially useful for those whose feet tend to overpronate upon landing, or whose gait and stance tend to deteriorate as fatigue sets in. As such, it’s the best shoe for high- to extremely high-mileage runners. These are the training shoes if you want to quite literally go the distance. That said, it is also a great pair if you’re prone to twisting your
ankle and need something with considerable support and protection.
