ASICS Men's GEL-Kayano 25
The new ASICS GEL-Kayano 25! With some significant midsole, outsole, and upper changes, the Kayano 25 is all-new and has a slightly updated ride to go with a little more generous fit.
ASICS has significantly re-designed the Kayano for the 25th version, updating the midsole, outsole, and upper - and has firmed up the ride a little bit as compared to the pervious Kayanos. Here are the main changes:
ASICS Kayano 25 vs 24
- ASICS has changed the midsole to use a couple new variations of their FlyteFoam technology - creating a little lower, firmer ride
- The outsole looks to be a little more chunky, adding some traction (although it's unlikely anyone found the Kayano 24 lacking in traction)
- The upper has been redesigned to be a more flexible, forgiving mesh and the overall fit of the shoe is a little roomier
- Stability remains unchanged, with the Kayano providing a nice stable platform and upper that works well for runners who need some amount of guidance
- The new versions of FlyteFoam that ASICS has used in the Kayano 25 has caused the weight to increase a bit, but because that same foam creates a more performance-feeling ride, you're probably not going to feel a difference on-foot
