The ASICS GEL KAYANO 27 is the stability shoe which provides premium comfort. This shoe is structured to offer a smooth and comfortable ride for your long runs. Aimed at pronating runners Gel Kayano 27 is a luxurious running shoe for stability. As usual, my review on the GEL KAYANO 27 will be based on the following.
Looks, Usage, and Type
The Kayano 27 comes with various colour options for you to pick from. There are six colourway options, and some of my favourite ones are the Sheet Rock/Magnetic Blue, White/Peacoat and the Black/Pure Silver. You can explore the rest of the collection here.
This edition of the GEL-KAYANO® 27 running shoe showcases a vibrant new design while the added heel portion is firm and responsive. I would like to give a special mention to the GEL KAYANO TOKYO 27 which comes in the Sunrise Red/Black. The colours are amazing making it really pop up and stand out.
Gel Kayano 27 is designed to go the distance while providing an outstanding level of stabilization. The FLYTEFOAM PROPEL MIDSOLE will allow shock absorption creating a more cushioned ride. It comes with a more segmented heel design which will improve the cushioning at the footstrike.
The guidance trusstic and duomax technology will help you conquer every distance and collapse your arch inwards. The forefoot implemented deeper flex grooves in comparison to its predecessor the GEL KAYANO 26.
The IGS (Impact Guidance System) links the different elements of the GEL KAYANO 27 to make your runs injury and stress-free.
Stage 1 is the REARFOOT GEL TECHNOLOGY CUSHIONING
Stage 2 is the GUIDANCE LINE
Stage 3 is the DYNAMIC DUOMAX SUPPORT SYSTEM
Stage 4 is the FOREFOOT GEL TECHNOLOGY CUSHIONING.
They weigh around 315 grams for the men and 250grms for the women to accommodate the various body mechanical differences.
The gel tech is designed more aggressively on the 27, which will help you reduce the knee pain, the back pain and all the discomfort.
My Experience so far….
Kayano is a premier stability trainer. Hence; is equipped with all the technology ASICS has to offer. This shoe is my second edition of a KAYANO offering, and I am a big fan of this particular series. The shoe is brilliant and a better fit for me personally in comparison to its predecessor.
