RELEASE DATE:

The Asics Men's GEL-Kayano 19 Running Shoe is nearly a half-ounce lighter than its predecessor, but it doesn't cut corners when it comes to fit or support. The lightweight, flexible upper keeps things cool and comfortable, while the exoskeletal heel counter enhances the fit and the Dynamic Duo Max dual-density midsole offers the structured cushioning that neutral runners and mild overpronators appreciate.

The Fits large; purchase 1/2 size smaller than standard running shoe size19 is a maximum feature, maximum support shoe designed for daily training and high mileage. It is built with a semi-curved shape.

You'll run lighter and faster in the ASICS® GEL-Kayano® 19 thanks to the half ounce drop in weight from last year's version. Made for overpronators seeking maximum support in a well-cushioned running shoe.   It has a breathable four-way stretch mesh upper provides better fit, feel, and durability.   There is a seamless overlay construction is strategically integrated in key areas to enhance its premium fit and feel.

The Guidance Trusstic™ is built with two trusses to enhance structural integrity and midfoot torsional rigidity. P.H.F.™ (Personal Heel Fit) holds the heel more securely and reduces the potential for friction. There is rearfoot and forefoot GEL® Cushioning.

These shoes felt good for mid to long range training runs.  Also, I used them for runs up to 20 miles which the shoe felt sturdy and my feet felt  quick and light.
