16 user reviews of Asics GEL-KAYANO 17 See all

I was thrilled that my first pair of Kayano 17s didn't blister my heels like Kayano 16's. So I purchased a second pair of 17's. Guess what? They give me the same heel blisters as the 16s!
Seems there are some build differences in the Kayano 17. If you suffered heel blisters in the Kayano 16, be aware that it seems to be pot luck as to whether or not the 17 blisters your heels.

Mr F: Kayano 17 is lighter than Kayano 16 by ~ half an ounce and I'd estimate a good ounce or more lighter than Kinsei 3 (which I assume you're referring to?)
Marc: Cushioning is lush - no complaints there. In the 17 Asics softened the forefoot so it now feels very cushioned in both heel and forefoot. Kayanos are not marshmallows like some Nike's, but still remain incredibly foregiving on the joints. Brilliant in that regard. 10/10.
