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 5 out of 5 by from Planters fasciitis pain GONE! Best shoe for flat feet and planters fasciitis. I will never stop buying these shoes!! I do miss the laces on the 27 but I’m so glad that the tips don’t crumple? Overall I would definitely recommend!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Heel padding was defective I bought this shoe around Christmas to wear to work. I did not wear them for a few weeks when I first got them. Upon the first wear, I noticed that the right heel padding/cushioning was off. I thought maybe it was just getting used to the fit. By day 3 I decided they were defective because the entire padding in the heel had slid to the bottom. It felt like a bunched up sock back there. This should not be the case for this kind of shoe. I've worn ASICS for work and exercise for 10+ years and never had a heel break down like this. The warranty department rejected the claim because it's not a manufacturing defect. I was told that it is how I put the shoe on. I offered to send the pair in so that they can see the difference in the right and left, but no. I have the same model in white and have had no issues. So now I'm stuck with a an expensive pair of shoes that I can't even wear.
