One of the most popular shoe makers and a popular veteran in the field of running and sports shoes is ASICS. With its acronym derived from the Latin phrase, Anima Sana In Corpore Sano which means a sound mind in a sound body, the company stays true to the philosophy that every concept, innovation and idea is aimed to creating the best product. The company strives to build upon their technological advances while pushing the limits on what they can learn from the body and in its needs when it comes to athletic gear. The ASICS Gel Kayano 16 Running Shoe greatly represents this philosophy.
The ASICS Gel Kayano 16 Running Shoe is equipped with Impact Guidance System (I.G.S.) which enhances the natural gait of the foot from the heel strike to toe-off. The asymmetrical lacing design enhances upper fit and comfort and at the same time minimizing the possibility for skin irritations. The Gel Kayano also has the PHF (Personal Heel Fit) which features a memory foam lined heel collar that molds to the athlete’s heel to create a personalized fit. The Solyte midsole material is lighter than ASICS’ standard EVA and SpEVA which combines improved cushioning and durability.
ASICS Gel Kayano 16 Testimonials
|P. Wigner, Virginia USA||I have run in Kayanos for the past 5 years, and each year I nervously try the new model only to find it is as good if not better than the last. I read quite a few reviews for the Kayano 16 and I was more nervous than ususal because there were a few comments about a new feel, the effect of the different lacing pattern on the toe box, etc. I have now been running in 16s for the past few months and I can safely say that for me these shoes are as good if not better than the 14s. I have not noticed any discomfort, and this shoe seems to fit me just a bit better than the 14s.|
|Mason Wood Running Man, Forks Washington||When i wear these bad boys its almost like walking on a bowl of sugar free jello. the cushioning effect is that unlike any shoe I have ever worn. I run 20+ miles a week and these shoes make it so much easier on my ankles and knees. The gel cushioning technology dissipates the shock horizontally to other parts of your feet instead of vertically directly to the heel.|
