One interesting fact about the new Asics Gel Kayano® 22 is that the men’s version and the women’s version have different heel:toe drops! The men’s version has a 10mm drop, and the women’s version has a 13mm drop.The women’s version also features a lower-density layer in the midsole, which allows for greater cushioning at lower body weights.
True to its heritage, the new GEL-Kayano® 22 takes a bold step forward in unsurpassed performance and modern design. The sleek new FluidFit™ upper is built with Seamless Construction and a re-engineered Heel Clutching System™ for a more secure and adaptive fit. Mild to moderate overpronators will be treated to the luxuriously plush comfort of the new ComforDry™ lasting and ComforDry™ X-40 sockliner sitting atop the stable FluidRide® platform.
