The long lineage of Asics’ GEL-Kayano line refreshes with its 19th edition. Seen here in Titanium/Royal/Black, the shoe focuses on refinement and lightness. Especially lightness. Kayano 19 weighs in at 10.9 ounces for guys, 8.9 for gals, making it the lightest Kayano yet.
Kayano fans will be happy to know the shoe doesn’t stray from its synthetic/mesh combo upper, keeping comfort on the steady. Running stride benefits from the moderating effect of Guidance Trusstic System, while Biomorphic Fit and Personal Heel Fit lock the foot down on the base. A Dynamic Duomax midsole houses forefoot and heel GEL cush.
GEL-Kayano releases to specialty running spots in November, with a wide release coming in January 2013. It’ll MSRP for $150.
