ASICS has spent a lifetime in the forefront of making great running shoes, and no other shoes exemplify this like the GEL-KAYANO 29. Combining smooth cushion with stability, this shoe is ready to go the distance. And with more bounce than ever, ASICS GEL-KAYANO 29 keeps up with the competition as well.
WHY PACERS CARRIES THIS SHOE:
ASICS GEL-KAYANO was a revelation when the first model was released in 1983; it set the standard for how comfortable and smooth stability shoes could be. GEL-KAYANO 29 wraps your foot in comfort while helping keeping your feet healthy by limiting overpronation. Whether you’re training for a marathon or putting in marathon days on your feet at work, your feet will love these shoes.
The ASICS GEL-KAYANO 29 is even more responsive and lighter. With new FF BLAST
PLUS cushioning and LITETRUSS stable construction, these shoes add a lively toe off to their namesake GEL comfort. The stretchy and supportive recycled mesh upper brings comfort 360 degrees around the foot. At 9.5oz for women and 10.5oz for men, these are the lightest in the history of the GEL-KAYANO models.

- Runners of all abilities running long and or easy that need some additional stability.
