Shoe Details




Do you remember your 20th birthday? Yeah, we don't either. What we do remember is the first edition of Asics' iconic Gel-Kayano running shoe series. The year was 1993, the world wide web was born, and runners everywhere were coming home with a brand new bundle of joy: a new shoe box filled with the shoe that would launch Asics' Kayano series. The Kayano would go on to become one of Asics' most successful models, and has been helping runners stay healthy and run in comfort for 20 years. Asics is celebrating the 20th anniversary of the Gel-Kayano by releasing 1993 twin packs containing the Gel-Kayano 20 as well as a limited edition remake of the original Gel-Kayano trainer. Running Room is proud to have a number of these very rare twin packs available, and pleased to offer them to the nostalgic Canadian runner.

    • The white running shoes are a tight fit

      Review by Bernard Seguin (Posted on 11/23/14)

      The fit on the Kayano 20 area a definite improvement. The same size of the earlier shoes have a more uncomfortable fit mainly in the toes reflecting possibly the evolution of the product. The earlier shoes was also used on a treadmill.
    • Always The Best!!

      Review by Guy Garceau (Posted on 8/28/14)

      I've been running in Gel-Kayanos since their Day 1. I loved those first years with the "loafer kind" interior. And I was delighted to note that this anniversary replica was made as the first one. Both pairs colors are great!! Twenty years, and always The Best for me!!
