I am a high mileage runner with high arches, and running in the Kayanos has helped to keep me injury free (knock on wood!) for one whole year! I like the 20s because of the added forefoot cushioning, which is nice for a mid-foot striker like me. I both train and race in these shoes, most recently finishing a marathon in 3:29:46 (Booyah!). They’re definitely not your grandma’s stability shoe. (Although your grandma would totally love them!)
