      Do people actually pay full price for these?

      I only ever get the previous generation kayanos/Nimbus when they're ~$130-$150
      Given technology for shoes hasn't really changed i feel it's more marketing spin these days.

      Except for those Nike Vaporfly, they're crazy quick

        "Had too" cause the Kayano 27 was one of the few shoes that Rebel had in stock that had 4E and my size. Plus the Kayano 26s weren't that much cheaper anyways.

          Agree, I need wide fit. Hard to get on special.

      same here, can feel your pain

    Thx op, bought one.

    No Iconic 25% discount for the 2E or 4E wide variants.

      The big / wide foot people getting left out as usual. First we get crap colour choices in any brand of runner and now miss out on the discount too.

        At least you can swim fast with those flipper feet.

      i'm flat footed and never used the 2e or 4e wide ones. do you use the e series because you are flat footed?

      i find the gel kayano to be the only shoe that support me as they are a bit narrower and the arches don't collapse as much. are the 4e ones just wider?

      i normally use orthaheel shoe supports in them.

      •  

        Nope, I have a genuinely wide foot (same with RM Williams - need a H-width)

  •  

    I'm very happy with my Gel Kayano 24's From Kogan which i paid like $80? but damn i don't know if i'd even give $150.

    All depends on how much one is on their feet i guess / what they are doing.

      You dont need too, but someone who runs every week would wear out their running shoes pretty quickly and would have to to keep buying, weather they go older models or latest just depends how much you run and earn etc

      •  

        Whether*

        •  

          These days, you just can't trust the whether.

    •  

      my feet and ankles have had problems over the years and i walk a lot, so i need better cushioned, more supportive shoes. i bought some kayanos from kogan like you did….$68. most i've paid for those were $120 from catch but that's because i wanted the black/black version.

      •  

        With how good i found those Kayano 24's i would probably pay $120 as well. I have a few hip problems myself and have been much more comfortable in them.

        •  

          i've heard of people with back problems who got some relief with more supportive shoes.

      You might as well be happy with the $20 kmart shoes, whats the point of your post?
      People literally pay $260 for those but some people wouldnt even bother at $150. lol.

    If you haven't had your feet checked for over-pronation first then I would recommend doing so before buying these. If your don't have over/under-pronation then go for something more neutral like the Nimbus (if you want to stick with ASICS). Take it from someone who learned the hard way training for a race in these…

    • +2 votes

      yeah, i only learned about pronation after years of wearing neutral shoes, then injuring my ankles.

      asics has a pretty good guide here: https://www.asics.com/au/en-au/pronation-guide

    •  

      Hi mate, what happened? I'm just curious, and want to see if it was an injury if I'm on the same path. I'm pretty neutral, no over or under from sole wear, and have gone through two generations of Gel Kayanos, 20 and 23. Not a serious runner by any stretch. With the GK20s I logged prob 1000ks in them, and the GK23s I'm just nearing 800, so about 3 years each and am due to get another pair. Age wise, I'm 40 now, and only started running in my 30s, almost exclusively in GKs, Adidas supernova before that. So far so good. Did you get an injury much later, or running faster/longer in them? Are we similar ages?

      •  

        I am early 30s. I felt pains up my shin, knee and hip within 200km of running in kayanos (about 30-35km/wk) and was training for a sub 90 half mara.
        I would say sounds like you are alright in them, but maybe worth going to a proper running shop and they will be able to measure you properly just to be safe?

    I grabbed some other shoes which weren't on sale at $199, but after discount and CB around $111
    Normally i'd wait til something goes on sale, but basically half the sizes were sold out with only a few left!!! Most the good stuff never makes it to sale, always people like my brother who pay full RRP! LOL

      quality over quantity

    I have the Kayano 25's and they are honestly the most comfortable shoe I've ever had!

    They sole has now worn down a bit on the front after 1.5 years, going for a run usually once or twice a week in them.

    I was going to get the 27's but changed it up this time and got the Hoka One One's and they are amazing!

    •  

      I’m flat footed and worn kayanos all my life while running. Good shoes, but I’m curious which do u prefer? Kayne or hoka?
      I’ve wanted to change shoes for a while now, but I’m kinda scared it’ll be a downgrade of sorts

      • +1 vote

        Hoka are great if you have any knee/hip issues, they offer a lot of cushioning but are not soft and spongy, so still good to run in. However, I would be cautious if you are using them for running on an uneven surface (trail running etc) - lots of good forward stability, but side to side not so great. Perfect for roads/footpaths though.

        They feel weird and clownish the first few times (and you are about an inch taller) but pretty quickly get used to them

        If you dont have any pain issues or pain I can't say they offer that much more than any other shoe. As in, they are just as good but if you have a shoe you like why change. But if you want to change, they are definitely worth a look

        •  

          Ahhh I’ll definitely look into it. I had micro fracture surgery on my knee last year and haven’t ran since - just heaps of walking.
          I want to get back into it, but obviously it’s a slow process - but I’ll definitely look into the shoes

          •  

            @eltito: Yes they have felt very good however, I don't know if it's that I'm running longer distances now but I am getting a slight pain in the inside of each foot at the end of my run, like the inside's of my feet isn't meeting the sole properly.

  •  

    Pretty terrible colours left.
    Who in their right mind does an all white running shoe? Unless the intention is not to run in it…

    •  

      Might be doubling up as a cricket shoe? Though I would want something more substantial on the toe, it might work…

    •  

      How does the colour of a shoe affect your running? If anything, the white illuminates in low light.

  •  

    <$150 only

    The price doesn't seem to drop for me. Still showing full price in check out

    I just got a shopback notification that doesn't give the whole 25% cashback, was only like $5, did anyone else have this issue? Ill wait 2 days I guess to see if it gets updated

    • +1 vote

      I was about to place the order but it looks like the shopback deal was only until 2pm today…
      Otherwise it reverts back to the standard 3.5% off

  •  

    Any suggestions for the cheapest Kayano 26 or 27 in 2e?

  •  

    Bummer. keeping my eye out for Kayano sales, Iconic only have ugly colours on sale in the womens.

  •  

    Black sold out in size 12 :(

  •  

    What's with these caving in at the toes? Seems like a defective design, I'd wait till they fix this.

    Would be great to hear how the souls hold up too, I didn't even get 2 months out of my Kayano 25 souls.

    Ultraboost souls have lasted me over 9 months now and still look like new, I get terrible shin splints in them though.

    Remember the shopback cashback has expired by now just fyi.

  •  

    Can I just say how much I detest theiconic.com.au voucher policy…. I've been waiting to use a voucher and it's essentially useless for 25% at checkout promo. So for example $200 shoes should be $50 off = $150 and with with my $100 voucher I'd pay only $50 + delivery if any.

    But guess what - vouchers and promos like this are not compatible. I guess they want vouchers to be used with full priced items. So $200 shoes in my example above ignore 25% off at checkout and deducting my $100 voucher I'd pay $100 + delivery.

    Really thought vouchers here are awesome because of the amount of different brands on offer. How can you go wrong finding stuff you want. Perfect present for anyone… I was so wrong.

    Received a 25% off on >$125 on sport/fitness gear. Most likely its only single use: SPORT25w9iDqp

    Pretty disappointing, ICONIC and shopback have not honoured the cash back.

    Shopback tracked my cashback and was marked pending the day order was placed. I placed the order well within the cutoff time when the deal was expiring.

    After 31 days and no cashback, shopback on followup say "We have investigated and found that the merchant has deemed ShopBack ineligible to earn commissions on this transaction which results in us being unable to pass the cashback along to you"

    The 30 days return is well past now and with no cashback makes it a dud deal.

    Need to ditch Shopback, this is the second time
