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 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.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Gel Kayano is not as good as they sound They were tight at first but stretched out. I am on my feet for 13 1/2 hours most days and these do not cut it for me. They are not cushiony after two weeks! My feet kill me by the end of the day. Sad that i can’t return them. Bad return policy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Absolutely love them Perfect shoe! Perfect fit with no breaking in needed. I was able to immediately go for a 2 mile run with zero issues or soreness following my run. By far, my favorite shoe I have ever bought. I loved them so much, I bought a second pair.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Shoe support I have purchased kayanos for 5+ years and this pair seems to have worn way faster than normal. The backs are very worn and the sole also feels like it had significant less support after just a few weeks. Bummed because I normally love kayanos.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Gel Kayano 28 Very light and cushiony. Like walking on air. The most comfortable kayanos yet! I only buy gel kayanos and I buy 3 or more colors every year. The 28’s are exceptionally comfortable! The only negative thing I noticed was a weird folding of fabric at the toe of the shoe when walking I have never seen this before in any other model year. It’s really not that big of a deal compared to the comfort of the shoe. I’m keeping them!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exceptional Shoes OMG! These shoes are so comfortable. Given that I had foot surgery in January of 2022, this style gives me the support that I need. I'm looking forward to working out!!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Really wish I could wear them. I have this exact same shoe in a different color, I decided to order this color and the left shoe hurts my foot….not sure why the same model wouldn’t be consistent. I tried to return and exchange for a different pair and was told I was unable to do that.
