Product Details

Enjoy excellent comfort and advanced support with the GEL-KAYANO® 27 running shoe. The redesigned mesh upper helps keep feet cool, while the sole is more flexible to help promote a more natural roll through the gait cycle. This starts in the heel with added flex grooves that assist in isolating initial impact to force a softer and smoother feeling at footstrike. At midstance, the foot should stop pronating and re-supinate for an efficient toe-off. To help this natural motion, we incorporate DYNAMIC DUOMAX® technology to help support the foot and increase stability for runners whose feet roll inward too much (overpronate). The midsole also integrates SPACE TRUSSTIC™ technology, which provides stability and reduces the overall weight to help promote a smoother transition from foot strike to toe-off. This added stability is complemented by deeper forefoot flex grooves for a smoother roll through toe-off, allowing the shoe to move more naturally with the foot. Lastly, a large section of reflective materials in the rearfoot helps keep runners visible when running in low-light conditions. The GEL-KAYANO® 27 model is an excellent choice for both competitive and noncompetitive runners looking for an everyday trainer that combines comfort with support.

GEL-KAYANO 27 PLATINUM is rated 3.4 out of 5 by 7.
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Don’t care for the new design I bought these because I love the Kayano 26. This new design is nothing like the previous model, in a bad way for me. The toe is EXTREMELY pointy, not rounded like 26. The overall shape of the shoe is different also. This one isn’t for me, I’ll stick with the previous model.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good bounce , a little snug around the arches Start with pros Love the extra cushion under the toe Great bounce to the shoe It is lighter than the GK 26 The cons Very snug fit around arches Very similar design to GK 26 Because it is lighter seems like less supportive Over all , light with good bounce but I don’t wonder about durability/ longevity’s. I’m 5 11 185lbs I wonder how long these shoes will last me . Also limited color ways .

Rated 1 out of 5 by from narrow heel and shallow heel cup heel is squeezed by the rim of the heel cup bellow the equator line and makes you want to put a heel in deeper but no. that is it. it is that shallow. I'm in orthopedic. all my patients were recommended asics. no more. i've return about 9 or 10 pairs because of the above

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good style, decent fit, not too different Decent style, decent fit, and not too different from past models. Seems to be visibly more cushion in the heel but don't feel it. Lot of room in the toe and I'm a 14 in all my shoes. Actually considering going down to 13 for the first time, since they don't have a half-size in between. Tired of white near the base of the shoe. Tired of having clean that area. When it comes to workout shoes, I prefer color so dirt isn't as visible. Otherwise, the modifications are slight. A bolder clasp-like heel, extra gel in the heel, nothing felt, more for show. Like to see the Kayano step up their style game. There are a couple attractive colorways, but I was highly anticipating these this year and I'm a bit underwhelmed.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from snug fit The toe box was very snug with no room at all compared to the nimbus 22. Very tight around the mid foot and the back heal is not very comfortable/lifts out of shoe. The glue between the "gel" and the other parts of the show are sloppily glued and the gel has finger prints on them that are permanently imprinted into the gel somehow.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from like a glove long time nike wearer... these were my first asics! Impressed with the gentle but firm glove like feet on my heel to mid sole. the toe area is roomy but not to roomy! I feel very stable walking/runnung in them! NOT going back! Man to think I have been missing out all this time! Wife knows best!
