It isn't a stability shoe or a cushioning shoe- it's a maximum support shoe, nothing less or more, and a great one at that. If it wasn't for the FlyteFoam midsole paired with Dynamic DuoMax Support System, nobody would confuse it as otherwise. By integrating the best of what running technology has to offer- an inevitable move considering its purposes and reputation- the Kayano 23 demonstrates that the best of both supporting worlds is possible even as those ideas change. That's because their intentions almost certainly embody the idea of running that captivates so many enthusiasts. Which can leave one to wonder just how much resilient comfort the shoes can provide? Quite a lot.
