Enjoy luxurious comfort and improved bounce with the men's GEL-KAYANO™ 26 LS running shoe, featuring GEL™ technology to the forefoot and rear for high-density shock absorption and a comfortable feel over long distances.
Featuring a jacquard mesh upper and FLYTEFOAM™ Propel technology for a lightweight quality that allows your feet to breathe, this ASICS running shoe is all about going the distance, providing exceptional support and comfort over long periods of time. The EVA sockliner offers excellent rebound and cushioning, while the GUIDANCE TRUSSTIC SYSTEM™ technology brings a new level of stability, working with the contoured midsole to help control torsion. Meanwhile, the SpEVA 45 lasting improves bounce-back characteristics to put a spring in your step (quite literally).
If your feet tend to roll inwards as you run, fret not. The DUOMAX™ midsole offers smooth overpronation control by combining two different density materials to reduce the risk of flat feet and bunions. Meanwhile, the AHAR™ rubber sponge helps to reduce excessive wear for a longer lifespan.
This new edition of the GEL-KAYANO™ 26 LS running shoe features LITE-SHOW™ reflective detailing to keep you visible and safe when you run after dark, so you can make sure you hit your training targets even as the days get shorter.

My long distance go toMy first Keyanos were 24 and here I am now with 26. Each time the comfort and responsiveness had improved and 26 is definitely an upgrade on 25. I am usually a but sceptical when it comes to new editions but ASICS definitely put thought into new models.
The fit is snug and the cushioning is very good. I used to just wear my Keyanos for running marathons but since I got the 26 I have been wearing them for shorter distances. The AHAR tech which means the rubber lasts longer on the sole is a good touch and after quite a few long runs on road the sole looks fresh. I am loving the red colour way and am hoping to achieve a PB in them.

Most comfortable shoeThe support is perfect for marathon training. Even on tired legs they are extremely comfortable. And in the darker evenings the Lite Show helps make sure you are more visible. I would recommend these for longer distances and will be my shoe for my autumn marathon.
