Heel Drop
10 mm
289 g/10.2 oz
Neutral, Stability
The GEL-KAYANO® Lite shoe embodies a more sustainable design approach that uses less componentry and fewer resources to produce. As its namesake suggests, this trainer is focused on preserving the stability properties of the GEL-KAYANO® series with less weight while lightening the load on the environment. Designed to provide excellent underfoot comfort, the shoe also offers an energetic ride and helps set the foot up for a more efficient toe-off. The upper is formed with recycled materials that are teamed with minimal overlays to target support where it's needed most. Wrapping the foot with a soft and silky feel, this engineered mesh provides a more accommodating fit and breathability to keep cool and comfortable. We created specific deformable shapes on the top of the midsole through the use of our 3D SPACE CONSTRUCTION™ design to slow the rate of pronation and improve the cushioning experience. This midsole technology is also tuned to accommodate the gait differences between male and female runners. Featuring a flared midsole geometry that has a concave shape on the lateral heel and a convex shape on the medial heel, this supportive design mechanism helps generate more compression during the landing phase to increase the resistance when the foot starts rolling inward. Cutouts in the midfoot improve the shoe’s flexibility and create a smoother ride, while the wider base nets in the shoe’s heel and forefoot provide more surface area to create a stable landing and toe-off. The GEL-KAYANO® Lite shoe is helping us take a step toward more sustainable manufacturing without compromising performance.

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.
    Improves compression and cushioning at footstrike and reduces pronation
  • GEL® Technology
    Cushioning provides excellent shock absorption
  • FLYTEFOAM® Technology
    Provides lightweight cushioning.
  • Designed with recycled materials

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Gel-Kayano Lite takes elevates the game I'm a longtime Gel-Kayano fan and was really excited to try these out. They didn't disappoint and are my favorites to date. I just ran a half marathon in my PR time and they held up beautifully. As I pivot towards running the Baltimore marathon in October, these are my main training shoes. My only concern is whether Asics will offer other color combinations soon or I'll have to order the same exact pair. Help!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from BeST HOT ARIZONA SHOE? NO! Absolutely love everything about this shoe. So much that i bought a second pair of the same exact model. First shoe had hole where little toe is on right foot. Dont understand, shoe size was right size. I understand these are the lite model but if I will have to buy this often, Ill have to buy another shoe.
