The no-sew construction provides a more adaptable fit that also reduces the risk of irritation or hot spots. At a basic level, the Kayano 24 shares a common mix of materials and placement with the 23. The top layer is softer than the bottom layer, which is supposed to be responsive and has bounce back properties. The plush collar feels a lot different and feels much better than previous versions because of the rounded-out shape of it - I think the intention was to prevent going too high and irritating the Achilles. It basically allows the foot to move more naturally without feeling restricted by the upper.
We will go over what these sneakers are all about below. For set ud fra et teknisk synspunkt så får du en løbesko i så absolut verdensklasse. The trademark Tiger Stripes have been removed from the medial sides of the Kayano. Og det er jo for så vidt også rigtigt. Materialet på skoenes inderside er lavet i et hårdere materiale end resten af sålen. Hvis skoen klarer jobbet, så kan man efterfølgende begynde at se på andre fordele og ulemper der kunne være i den ene løbesko fremfor den anden. Best for people with normal, high or medium high arches.
With overpronation, the foot is curved inward and the weight gets transferred to the inner side of the ball. Og her er der 2 væsentlige parametre som jeg ikke mener man kommer uden om: Vægt: Vægten på en løbesko har en hel del at sige. Det er langt under hvad jeg ville vurdere denne løbesko kunne bære i pris. We thank the nice people at Asics for sending us a pair of Gel Kayano 24 to test. All these strange changes can be attributed to the non-existent feedback loop of running shoe design. For completeness: Light blue line shows my overall average pace on the given course running Half-Marathon. Each run is different for many reasons, and I have had more good days than bad with the Kayanos than with any other shoes since the Nike Pegasus 15, from the last century.
Design I needed a wide version in Asics and always go for the 4E if available. This vertical flex groove merges with horizontal grooves in the forefoot for increased flexibility, which is badly needed in a shoe that has more than enough cushioning and support features. Some people have very painful feet due to overpronation. I am using the and on alternating days and have not been able to detect any differences between these two shoes, they feel and even sound the same. Some shoe companies simply change colors and sizes for the women's version, Asics takes the matter of Gender Specific Engineering more seriously. On the Kayano 24, that is reversed.
The toe-box gets a new-found quality of fit. The Guidance Line splitting the outsole leaves all the heavy lifting to the edges of the forefoot rubber slabs, and this causes the rubber to wear off faster. The type of midsole material used is the same in the two running shoes. The heel continues to have a large exoskeleton clutching system. Generally speaking, the Kayano is the heaviest type of shoe as it involves more gel in the midsole.
Og hvis vi tager udgangspunkt i at en Asics Kayano som regel lægger på en pris omkring de 1000-1100,- i Danmark. Also keep in mind that the Kayano is the more expensive series. We could have said the same of the Kayano 23, except that the new Kayano makes for a better comparison in the context of the improved upper fit. It is great for the shakeout days and the recovery runs when you went too hard the day before. Og det mener vi ikke er tilfældet. The raised toe profile ensure ample toe-box height and also eliminates the pointy-ness of the 23. Instead, it just happens to be a supportive and cushioned shoe, made possible by a very wide midsole.
The Asics Kayano shoes have a technology called the Dynamic DuoMax Support System. Upper: Engineered mesh, fused urethane, external plastic heel counter. Instead of having a prominent Achilles dip, the collar is now rounded and has more foam inside. In plainer words, this implies that the midfoot feels smooth, and the untethered tongue tends to slide. The only drawback is the limited color options. It can be difficult to pick and choose between them.
Five miles of easy running in the hills before sunrise left me full of confidence. The Asics Kayano has made gains over earlier versions in this department, particularly when it comes to the durability of midsole foams. Asics has been pretty good about offering true 4E widths in their support shoes like the and the Kayanos. It also uses the DuraSponge®, which reduces supination to give a balanced and stretchy ride to the runners. We could end up loving the new rolled down collar, the new heel clutch or new jacquard mesh upper and say they are worth every penny. After about 300 prototypes they came up with the right formula for what they now call FlyteFoam.
