Asics has brought back its legendary Gel-Kayano series for an unprecedented 20th go-around, and the latest version could just be the best yet.

Celebrating the shoe’s 20 years of existence, Asics has give the Gel-Kayano 20 a fresh makeover, while making sure to stay true to its roots. The 20 has the same excellent step-in feel that runners are accustomed to, but the shoe does feature a new FluidRide midsole unit that is offers lightweight cushioning without skimping on durability.

Asics has kept the same Guidance Trusstic system seen in previous models to promote enhanced gait efficiency, along with an identical Dynamic DuoMax Support System for stability and support.

The upper on the Gel-Kayano 20 has also been upgraded with FluidFit technology, which consists of multidirectional stretch mesh laden with a thin webbing of synthetic overlays for comfort and a custom fit.
