The ASICS GEL KAYANO series will always be my go-to shoes. Premium stability shoe from ASICS for runners with pronation.  To be honest and to not sound biased, the Gel Kayano 27 are my all-time favourite shoes.
And what better way to get your favourite pair of shoes specially made for the city you live in, during the Dubai Fitness Challenge 30×30. This partnership is to highlight the beliefs of ASICS, which is a sound mind in a sound body.

 I will break down my review based on the following.

Looks, Usage, and Type


The first-ever shoe designed for Dubai comes in a unique design and a single colour of black with the coordinates of our city along with the skyline and the colours of the Dubai Fitness Challenge. The exclusive limited edition will be available at select retail outlets throughout the city from 29th October 2021, including GO Sport and Sun & Sand Sports.


In terms of usage, the GEL KAYANO have been known to deliver a stable (thanks to TRUSSTIC™ technology), consistent and durable ride. The iconic shoes of the stability sector of the brand are known to deliver time over time.
And this time around, the shoes have gone through a change. The forefoot has been more flexible; FlyteFoam Blast midsole and tighter locked-in heel counter will make it a favourite amongst the pronating runners.


These are built to last for miles and miles, a perfect companion for your long runs. In Kayano 28, ASICS has introduced a 3D Space Construct. This helps improve compression at foot strike, and with its lightweight FF Blast midsole foam, the smoothest running train is just around the corner. The DUOMAX technology helps reduce pronation by gently supporting the interior of the foot while running. In terms of weight, the 28 is lighter than the 27 and has a reduced heel drop in comparison to its former model.

My Experience so far….

This limited edition is a recommended one for both beginners and experienced runners. The skyline design alongside the comfort and support technology of Asics is indeed a perfect partnership for the wonderful Dubai Fitness Challenge 30×30. So don’t miss out on this gem of a shoe
