The 19th version of the GEL-Kayano® series takes a "stop at never" approach by improving upon its award winning ride, comfort, and fit. ASICS' flagship Structured Cushioning model drops over a half ounce in weight, thanks to top-of-the-line features like Heel Clutching System™ and Dynamic DuoMax®. This legend's upper fit also receives special attention with strategically placed seamless overlay construction making the GEL-Kayano® 19 the best in its history.
