The main difference between the two is the DuoMax support, from my understanding, is lighter.

There’s no real over-the-top benefit for going for Dynamic DuoMax over traditional DuoMax.

New upper with more area for your toes

You find the first change of the sneaker in the upper, made in a new jacquard mesh stuff, and is super soft and perfect for touching.

And matched to the Kayano 25, there is more area for your toes, for Asics has expanded the toe box in both its width and height – and that is a change that many runners are promised to appreciate.

It is not the case that the Kayano 26 is now downright a wide-running sneaker, but you can feel that it has more room in the front.

A softer and more responsive running experience

The most significant changes from the Asics GEL Kayano 25 to the 26 are to be found underfoot.

Asics have replaced several things that mean the Kayano 26 feels softer and more perfect.

The primary change is the insole, which now has a more anatomical shape so that it forms itself to the shape of your foot and supports it even more significantly.

This does not truly make it softer or more suspensive.

More GEL under the heel and front

Further to the extra amount of Flyte Foam propel, the Kayano 26 has also ended up with much more GEL in both the front and heel.

The extra GEL is evident on the heel’s outer side, hidden in the center of the shoe at the front.

GEL has, throughout the many, lots of years, been Asics signature material.

For the last couple of years, the foam has changed more and more in the Kayano 25 and 24.

Asics has replaced the course with Kayano 26.

For the first time in a long while, their Kayano now has extra GEL.
