Enjoy luxurious comfort and improved bounce with the men's GEL-KAYANO™ 26 wide width 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 edition of the GEL-KAYANO™ 26 wide width running shoe showcases a vibrant new design to inspire you to unleash your inner runner, on those days when you might need a little extra motivation, while added reflective details improve your visibility when you're out after-dark.

Too soft and squishyIt's supposed to offer stability for over pronators. The foot bed is so squishy that its unstable. Pronation is corrected to an extent but the balls of the foot are painful after jogging, running or simply walking for an extensive period of time. My old Gel Foundation 11s with a less squishy foot bed are far more stable. Shame the Gel Foundation 13s don't come in an all black variant.

Terrible FitHave 6 pairs of Asics and they l fit perfectly although they generally don't last longer than 6 months and I don't run in them - Got the 26s in my normal size 9 and they were too big. Reordered an 8.5 and still too big.
