The standard (medium) width for women is B, while the standard width for men is D. Shoe boxes and labels will only identify widths other than standard. Within the shoes, wide and narrow widths are identified on the label, underneath the tongue — ie. T005N(2E).

When is additional width needed?
Visible stretching or bulging on the outsides of forefoot materials is a good indicator that additional width may be needed. These sizes are available in many of our Running and Training shoes. In some cases, men can wear women’s styles to achieve a narrow fit and women can wear men’s to get a wide. If this is needed, please use the references above to determine comparable size lengths. Please note that the differences of width between narrow, standard, wide, and extra wide are usually only a couple millimeters and are proportional to the size of the shoe. Most additional width will be found in the forefoot.

pronation

Pronation is part of the natural movement of the human body and refers to the way your foot rolls inward for impact distribution upon landing. Understanding your pronation type can help you find a comfortable running shoe. The GEL-KAYANO LITE 2 is made for Overpronation.

Overpronation

Foot Type

Low arches or flat feet

PUSH OFF

Big toe and second toe do majority of the work.

HOW YOUR FOOT CONTACTS THE GROUND

The foot lands on outside of heel, then rolls inward (pronates) excessively, transferring weight to inner edge instead of ball of the foot.

Product Features

Ahar Rubber Sponge Outsole

Acronym for ASICS High Abrasion Rubber. Placed in critical areas of the outsole for exceptional durability.

Flytefoam Technology

Our lightest midsole ever. Its organic fibres bounce back into its original shape in the space of each stride to provide perfect cushioning from the start of your run to the finish.

Full Ground Contact

Provides a smooth and stable transition from foot strike to toe off.

Gel - Rearfoot And Forefoot

Attenuates shock during impact and toe-off phases, and allows movement in multiple planes as the foot transitions through the gait cycle.

Guidance Line

Longitudinal groove that decouples tooling along the line of progression for enhanced gait efficiency.

3D Space Construction

This technology is implemented through a series of strategically planted pillars within the midsole, allowing runners to experience more compression in a specific area without reducing durability or stability. These pillar formations are tuned differently in the men's and women's models to address each gender's biomechanical data

Rated 1 out of 5 by Mike from Sizing not right Sorry, had many Asics over the years and while the shoe feels great the sizing is different to my other ASICS, as usually 8US but it fits to a 8.5US so can't wear them :(

Rated 5 out of 5 by Scotty from Best ASICS ever Have run in ASICS for over 20 years at approximately 75kms per week. The Kayano 28 lite is the best shoe I have run in. Thanks Jess for the recommendation, what a great brand ambassador
