ASICS Gel-Kayano Lite 2

Save £93.00

ASICS Gel-Kayano Lite 2

With a focus on a sound earth the ASICS Gel-Kayano Lite 2 in Black/White focuses on providing a structured runner with sustainability at the forefront.
The ASICS Gel-Kayano Lite 2 feature a higher percent of recycled materials in its mesh upper than in the previous version, but still features key support zones to increase stability.

The lightweight midsole is made from organically derived materials which add to the durability of the Flytefoam material.

Using a 3D Space Construction, the Gel-Kayano Lite 2 addresses the difference in gait between male and female runners, and reduces over pronation, keeping your foot supported.


A titan in the world of running footwear, the ASICS GEL-KAYANO series has been delivering stable shoes with immense impact protection since the 90s. If you need significant structure and a cushioned feel, this is the shoe that sets the benchmark.

Regular Cushioning

Regular cushioning offers a blend of lightness, comfort, and ground feel. Popular for shorter distance racing as well as training and daily mileage running, the lower stack of midsole foam offers inherent stability and a lighter feel on your foot when compared to max-stack shoes.


Creators of one of the first marathon-specific shoes back in 1953, ASICS have a firmly established history in running, with their reputation for technical excellence spreading far beyond the borders of their home base in Japan.

They remain hugely successful in the 26-mile distance, where their renowned GEL technology is popular for its ability to absorb impacts and help reduce injuries.

ASICS also produce excellent shoes for overpronators, as embodied by their flagship series, the Kayano, a long-distance structured shoe that’s been keeping runners comfortable since ’93. 

Their newer Fast series includes the explosive Novablast. Ditching the slightly heavier GEL for lightweight but propulsive materials, they make the most of every moment over shorter distances.


This shoe is a structured running shoe, designed to offer stability and support, particularly beneficial for runners who overpronate or have flat feet. It features strategic cushioning and a supportive arch, aligning your foot and controlling inward rolling to reduce stress on your joints. The midsole is made from durable material that discourages excessive foot motion, providing a guided stride. The upper is constructed to securely hold your foot in place, enhancing comfort and reducing the risk of blisters. If you're seeking a shoe that offers a blend of comfort, durability, and structure, this running shoe is an excellent choice.

Road Running

It might say road, but we don’t just mean pounding closed-off streets on race day. Road shoes are predominantly for the pavement.

They feature flat rubber traction for confident footing in the city and enhanced cushioning to soak up the strain of every stride.

Best for Everyday Mileage

To cope with all the miles you run, shoes for everyday mileage are built to last.

Thicker rubber on the outsole withstands huge amounts of pavement pounding, and a thicker, more durable upper also helps to improve longevity.

The other priority is comfort, with soft materials around the entrance and midsole foams designed to cushion, feel great, and last.


Because of the extra protection, daily mileage shoes tend to be heavier than their race day and tempo counterparts.
