Heel Drop
10 mm
258 g/9.1 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.
The GEL-KAYANO® 28 (Narrow) shoe creates a stable stride that moves you towards a balanced mindset. Featuring a lower-profile external heel counter, this piece cradles your foot with improved rearfoot support. To improve stability and responsiveness, we added FF BLAST™ cushioning to the midsole. It provides a smooth and supportive feel in each step. The trainer's new GEL® technology shape delivers a smooth stride, allowing you to experience a softer landing without losing speed.

GEL-KAYANO 28 (2A) is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 35.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Gel-Kayano28 (2A) This is my 5th pair of the Kayano shoe. I have narrow feet and it isn’t always easy to find a supportive shoe that fits. One request….could you please give us folks with narrow feet a second Kayano, in narrow, in a different color? I know you probably don’t have a lot of folks with narrow feet, but for those of us who have them…we would greatly appreciate it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Gel-Kayano Recommended by My Podiatrist My podiatrist recommended these for Plantar Fasciitis and I am so enoying my Gel-Kayano's. My feet feel so awesome.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Even better than I hoped. Not many good sports shoes come narrow and these fit perfectly! Good heel support, good cushioning, very comfortable.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Gel Kayano in a 9AA These shoes are very comfortable, but don’t have the same structure and support offered by the Gel 2000 shoes I had previously. I couldn’t find them in my size any longer. (I wear size 9N or 2A) and prefer a stiffer shoe.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Narrow, cushioned shoes. Amazing!!! I purchased these shoes to see if a narrow size would improve my running by reducing slop—what a difference they made! Most comfortable pair of shoes I’ve ever worn!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great fit for narrow feet! These are the only athletic shoe that fit narrow feet! I've been wearing them for umpteen years.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Poor Quality Shoe I have worn ASICS running shoes for twenty years. I wear a narrow size, and ASICS is one of the few companies that still offers a narrow option. These shoes are not your usual quality. They are stiff and rub my toe. The usual cushioning is not there anymore. I am sorry that I did not send them back as I paid full price. I probably will go to a different brand next time.
