Six months ago, I popped over to Berlin for something exciting—the launch of the new ASICS Gel Kayano 30. The event in Berlin wasn’t just a product launch; it was a celebration of the running community and a testament to ASICS’ commitment to pushing the boundaries of running shoe technology. 

Expert presentations delved into the shoe’s engineering, highlighting how it caters specifically to the needs of pronators like myself.

The highlight of the event was, of course, the opportunity to lace up the Gel Kayano 30 for the first time.

Six months into my journey with the ASICS Gel Kayano 30, the memories of that launch event in Berlin continue to resonate. It was more than just an introduction to a shoe; it was the beginning of a running adventure that has only deepened my appreciation for the Gel Kayano series.

A Familiar Embrace:

I loved the Gel Kayano 30 the moment I laced them up in Berlin. The comfort, the new stretch knit upper and more importantly the support I’ve come to expect from the Kayano series.

As I hit the streets of Berlin, it became evident that ASICS had once again raised the bar in running shoe technology. The Gel Kayano 30 offers both comfort and stability. Even after six months of running with these shoes, they are still my go-to pair for every road run.

The Gel cushioning transforms those long runs, I can confidently say that my last marathon wouldn’t have been the same without the support of the Gel Kayano 30. As a pronator, the stability of the 4D Guidance System has been invaluable, ensuring that my feet are well-supported and in optimal alignment throughout every run.

Sleek Design: Where Fashion Meets Function

One of my favourite things about the Gel Kayano 30 is the design. Not only does it perform exceptionally well, it looks good.

And here’s the exciting news: The Gel Kayano 30 is now available in new colourways. These fresh additions bring a vibrant element to the impressive design. Among the new colour options is Diva Pink – possibly my favourite shoe colour name ever! This bold and energetic makes a statement both on and off the track.

You could say the ASICS Gel Kayano 30 has become my longest-lasting relationship yet! In the ever-evolving world of running shoes, this one has proven to be a reliable partner for the long haul. Whether it’s the marathon or a regular road run, these shoes have consistently delivered, making every stride a pleasure.
