Just like remembering the early editions of Now That’s What I Call Music, having owned single-digit Gel Kayanos certainly makes you feel your age.

Asics’ flagship high-miler is now in its 19th incarnation and, despite the recent minimalist shoe renaissance, they’ve stuck to their tried-and-tested formula of throwing the technological kitchen sink at it. 

If you’re a confirmed hard-heel-striking overpronator though, you won’t find a plusher ride. 

Considering the amount of cushioning and support, 328g for a UK 10 is impressive; even our minimalist-leaning, forefoot-striking tester admitted that, for long runs on tired legs, they’re incredibly forgiving. 

They’re pillow-like to run in and the inners are so soft you want to run sock-free. Their price is steep, but for logging those winter miles or steadier long-course racers you can easily argue they’re worth it.
