REI has Asics Men's GEL-Kayano 27 Road-Running Shoes (Rock/Magnetic Blue) on sale for $79.83 (discount applied in cart). Shipping is free, otherwise select free store pickup if stock permits.

Thanks to community member jatt.almighty for finding this deal.

Note: Available sizes may vary.

Product Info:
  • The latest segmented design works with softer, more stable midsole foam and slightly deeper flex grooves in the forefoot for a superb transition from footstrike to toe-off
  • Multidirectional mesh knit uppers add support in key areas, while allowing more space between the fibers to reduce weight and enhance breathability.
  • Durable FLYTEFOAM Propel technology is the lightest midsole material that ASICS offers, providing a soft, bouncy feel underfoot
  • I.G.S (Impact Guidance System) follows the natural progression of the feet from impact to toe-off to encourage a more consistent natural gait and running stride
  • Dynamic Duomax support system provides firmer foam support on the inside of the shoe with a softer layer of foam on top for added comfort
  • Gender-specific Space Trusstic technology integrates space between the midsoles and trusstic pieces for added stability and support inside the arch
  • Forefoot twist GEL technology combines softer material in the forefeet with GUIDANCE LINE midsole technology to position the feet for a more natural stride
  • Rearfoot GEL technology built into the heels absorbs shock when the feet make contact with the ground
  • TPU plastic heel counter support locks the heels in place away from the feet for less irritation and more overall comfort
  • Light AHAR outsoles feature sponge rubber that helps reduce wear and enhance cushioning
  • Super AHAR heel plugs made from higher-abrasion rubber are used in heavy wear areas to extend the life of the shoes

Kayanos are stability shoes for people that over pronate. The ghost and Glycerine are neutral shoes. In my opinion I think Asics is a better brand then Brooks. My dad switched from Brooks to Asics also and it cured his plantar fasciitis
If you want to see if these types of sneakers are for you, examine a current worn-in pair of sneakers that you own. Compare the outer heel of both shoes (ie: the right side of the right heel, and the left side of the left heel). If they are heavilly more worn-in than the rest of the heel, than you are a moderate over-pronator, and will benefit from shoes with stability. This is generally the case with people who have flatter feet with a low arch.

Gel Kayanos and GT-2000 are my go-to ASICS shoes for the past ten years. If you have an ASICS outlet near you, the prior season's shoes tend to have very aggressive promotions during the fall.

If you are a severe over-pronator, then motion control shoes are the next level up, but there is no free lunch...they tend to be VERY heavy. For these, I used to always went for New Balance, but their lineup has shrunken quite a bit, and never go on sale.

I can attest to them helping with plantar fasciitis. Kayanos and daily stretching works for me. I prefer the 25s and 26s over the 27s though.

Love these shoes in X-wide. Too bad REI doesn't offer the extra wide versions. Great price.

I had a pair of regular width Kayano 23 or 24 and they were way too narrow compared to earlier versions. Anyone know how these fit? Just trying to figure out if I need to order the wides.

As mentioned, these are a stability shoe so more comparable to the Brooks Beast. The Beasts are a big, ugly, heavy shoe, but they get the job done for over pronators. So do the Kayanos. From a function perspective they're both good. I've used both.
