Shoe of the Week: Asics Kayano 22

The Asics Gel Kayano 22 is here at Charm City Run. With a long legacy of successfully blending cushioning and stability, this new model has several improvements to showcase. Most notably, the Engineered Seamless Mesh upper has removed most of the stitches that can rub hot spots. Asics also has enhanced the Heel Clutch System, cradling the rear foot even better than before.  Deeper flex grooves and a plush sock liner continue to make the Kayano a very unique and durable everyday running shoe. Come slip a pair on and discover the plush cushioning and superior support that has kept this shoe awesome for over two decades.
