You'll run lighter and faster in the ASICS® GEL-Kayano® 19 thanks to the half ounce drop in weight from last year's version. Made for overpronators seeking maximum support in a well-cushioned running shoe. Breathable four-way stretch mesh upper provides better fit, feel, and durability. Seamless overlay construction is strategically integrated in key areas to enhance its premium fit and feel. Guidance Trusstic™ is built with two trusses to enhance structural integrity and midfoot torsional rigidity. P.H.F.™ (Personal Heel Fit) holds the heel more securely and reduces the potential for friction. Rearfoot and forefoot GEL® Cushioning. Durable High Abrasion Rubber® (AHAR) heel, DuraSponge®. Wt. 8.9 oz.

Disappointed with Asics for first time ever!

I've been wearing Asics 2100 series and Kayanos for 10 years and have worn no other brand of running shoes. I had the Kayano 18s and LOVED them - bought 3 pairs. I made the mistake of wearing the 19s right out of the box as I have always done with all of my Asics. These run slightly higher above the heel - I got blisters for the first time ever. Also, the toe box is noticeably wider than the 18s - my feet swim in these (width not length). I feel like the arch support in the 19s is not as good as the 18s but it's probably because these are too wide for me. Of course, I wore this pair outside for several hours so can't send them back now. I will try the Kayanos in narrow I guess, but if that fails, I guess I'll have to look for another running shoe...so bummed. Not sure why Asics changed the 19s...please please go back to the 18s at least in width and heel area.
Cons: runs wide, poor arch support, uncomfortable

Complement your game with stylish, off-court storage. Made with yarn-dyed heather polyester, the Nike LeBron Air Max Soldier Backpack sports a unique look and feel. LeBron-inspired lion heads offer aggressive style. 15" padded laptop sleeve with separated tablet pocket secures your valuables when you're traveling to and from games. For all your storage needs, this basketball backpack includes water bottle pockets, a front fuel pouch, and a plush lined valuables pocket. The shoe compartment can fit up to a pair of size 14 shoes. Max Air 3.0 curved straps with sport-fit padded back panel promises comfortable wear. Fold-down main compartment and water-resistant-coated bottom shield your gear from the elements.

What is the difference between the LeBron Max Air Soldier and the LeBron Ambassador Backpack?

I'm noticing bigger external side pockets on the Air Soldier pack. Is this the only difference between the two besides the price? Could you fit a basketball in both of these packs? Thanks!

On top of these great new additions, the GEL-Kayano 20 includes many other popular ASICS' shoe technologies. Guidance Trusstic™ System provides a lightweight and supportive design, ensuring that the foot is stabilized throughout your run. Teaming with the FluidRide midsole, rearfoot and forefoot GEL® Cushioning softens your step and encourages an efficient running stride. Wt. 9.2 oz.
 

Width and toe box in 20s compared to 18s or 19s?

I've worn Kayanos for quite a while - always a 10.5 Medium width...loved the 18s but the width and toe box of the 19s were wider than I was used to. Can someone who wears this model year after year comment on the width of the 20s? Thank you!
