Rated 4 out of 5 by from Comfortable, but This shoes has an above average heel to toe drop that produces an annoying slap-slap sound as it rolls from heel to toe. Otherwise very comfortable for someone who needs a large toe box.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from You don't get what you pay for. Very uncomfortable and little lateral support. For the price tag ($160), I really expected a far superior sneaker. I thought they'd break in, but unfortunately, after almost a year, they never did. Very uncomfortable in the arch of the sneaker, even after installing custom orthotics.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 23 since 11 I've been running in the Gel Kayano since I first found them (I think they were #11 then.) Always looking for a deal because they are expensive! Bought two pair at this price. I've had some extra bounce in my legs these past four or five runs since I've been using the new pairs. Guess the old ones were sort of beat.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good, Stable, Running Shoe I buy this brand and model regularly. The fit is right and the shoe lasts. Good stability and impact absorbion. I buy them at REI only now because I know I can return them without hassle if some freak issue comes up with them. Nothing has but I like the ability to buy with confidence.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A very excellent and comfortable shoe Much improved over the 20s. A whole different feel of stability. I use them for pickle ball outdoors and wore them out in 2 months. I will have to find another shoe with a better tread warranty for PB.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great comfort! I purchased these for running and they are awesome! The cushion feels like pillows of air.
