Heel Drop
13 mm
261 g/9.2 oz
Neutral, Stability

Designed For Neutral Overpronation



  • Foot Type

    Normal size arches
  • Push Off

    There is even distribution from the front of the foot.
  • Considered Injuries

    Less likely due to effective shock absorption, but neutral runners are not immune to injury.
  • How your foot contacts the ground

    The foot lands on outside of the heel, then rolls inward (pronates) to absorb shock and support body weight.


  • Foot Type

    Low arches or flat feet
  • Push Off

    Big toe and second toe do majority of the work.
  • Considered Injuries

    Shin splints, plantar fasciitis, bunions, heel spurs.
  • 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.
Enjoy luxurious comfort and improved bounce with the women's GEL-KAYANO® 26 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 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.

GEL-KAYANO 26 is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 3981.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from long lasting + comfortable!! I bought my gel-kayano 26's when they first came out (around 2020 I think) and they were the best shoe for me to wear at school. Really comfortable and good to play sport in at school, and I could use them for netball training (wouldn't 100% recommend it for sports such as netball as you'd generally require better support given by proper netball shoes). It's around mid-2022 now and I still use them for sport uniform at school and at work. The cushioning in the soles has worn-down a lot but they're still very comfortable. Unfortunately I believe they've stopped making this model now. But wanting to say to asics these shoes are amazing and anyone that bought these will 100% get great use out of them. Mine are going 3 years strong :)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from ASICS knocked this one out of the ballpark!!!!!!! I have been running in Gel Kayano's for 20 years and this has been my favorite model. Since model 20 ASICS has been all over the place with changing this shoe, Iv even had to run in other brands because some of the models were down right awful. This 26 model reminds me of the old models that I loved prior to the 21....but new and improved! This shoe is almost perfect. The only complaint I would have is the toe box. ASICS made this model rounder and shorter. First time in 20 years I had to go up half a size. But the shoe is amazing for running. The stability is excellent, the shoe doesn't lose its form, great springy action and the base is the perfect combo of firmness and comfort. I can speed run and long run in these shoes. I will keep buying model 26 until I cannot find them anymore. ASICS please make more like this one! Stop changing this shoe so much!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Like walking on air! These shoes were perfect for me. I chose them because they suited a supinator. My posture was better, I could walk long distances without tiredness, wore them every day on a vacation/tour. They propel your feet nicely.
