I almost forgot the Asics Kayano 16 update

Because I got jacked out my lunch swim yesterday (bastards). I wasn't in a position to blow off a whole work out day, so It gave me an opportunity to lace those new kicks up and give them some more road time.
I will say first of all, I didn't lace them as tight as the first run.
This appeared to be a good thing and they actually felt way more flexible on this run.

a. I like the offset lace system, not only do I think it looks cool, it appears to be functional for my stride.
b. I'm definitely a mid striker and they have good support and cushion for a 205 lb runner.
c. there actually pretty lite.

I only ran 3.4 miles @ 8.68 mpm and the only thing I noticed that was not settled or that I am comfortable with is the balls of my feat were a little hot. So maybe it was because of the loose lacing and the toe box starting to stretch and form better.

I think I'm much closer to keeping and getting them in a solid rotation with the Gel Nimbus


  1. Im abt to p/u the latest Kayano's the last two versions have worked well for me

  2. Glad they are feeling better, sometimes shoes take a few runs to break in properly, though others will say if they are not comfortable out of the box to return them.
