Thanks for the great review! I’m a severe overpronator and I used the Brooks Pure Cadence 6 but I’ve been experiencing some pain in my outer ankle as well as on top of my middle-foot and the toe area (actually got bruised), which I think is due to the rather shallow toe area, and since I didn’t have these problems before with my Asics, I blame them on the Brooks. So now I’m thinking of switching back to an Asics model and can’t decide between the Kayano and the GT. Which one would you go for in this case?

So now the toe box is more room in the 24 than the 22 correct?

I’m running the London Marathon in the summer so am following a programme of running 4 times a week (99% on road) but with varied training types (interval, long runs, fartlek etc). I have slight knee problems which I wear insoles for and have tried both shoes and really cannot tell any difference. I was wondering if, between the two there were any differences that would be handy to know in terms of support / cushioning in relation to that. Thanks!

Hi Josh,

Great review. I am in the process of looking for a new shoe, currently running in some Gel Kayano 20’s and the reason I got this shoe was because of the shock absorption as I had an ACL reconstruction as well as some meniscus removed from a sporting injury. I went into a running store and they showed me a Mizuno Wave Inspire 14 and a Kayano 24 and both shoes were great. I felt the Mizuno was a lot more suited to my foot and felt a lot better however am worried that its not got enough cushioning to help prevent issues with my knee later down the track. Just wanted to get your thoughts before I default back to the Kayanos.

Thanks Hung

Great explanation – I’d buy from this guy if I was in Australia. I need help deciding upon a shoe for my mid-severe overpronation, but there’s so many choices. I was looking at the Brooks GTS Adrenaline and a Transcend, as well as Asics Gel Kayano (I have an older version), although someone also mentioned a Hoka Arahi…And now I’m not sure :s. I just want to avoid shin splints!!
