The Gel-Kayano 22 is a high-end, cushioned stability running shoe great for the mild to moderate overpronator. Not much has changed underfoot in this version: The Kayano 22 retains the 20% bounce-back and 15% weight reduction of the FluidRide 2.0 midsole introduced in the Kayano 21. Gel along the lateral side of the shoe cushions your foot from impact through toe-off. The big changes in the Kayano 22 are above decks. The upper has gone seamless. An internal stretch-mesh layer combines with three internal bands to hold the foot securely and prevent pronating through the upper of the shoe. Engineered mesh on the outside is breathable and flexible, completing the FluidFit construction. Another change to the upper is the re-configuration of the external heel clutch, which has become tighter and taller on this model. All of these elements combine to make a smooth and secure ride, allowing you to be fearless in this shoe.
The Lite Show version of the Kayano 22 features all-over reflectivity, an important feature for the nocturnal animals among us.
