Gel-Kayano running shoes are available in a variety of designs and colours for men, women and children. The pronation suitability of the shoe is designed for those who have overpronation, where the foot rolls inwards as you run. Matching a shoe with a running style is vital for performing to the best of your ability. It will increase comfort, running efficiency and even help to decrease the risk of an injury.
The shoe itself has a new and improved FluidRide which reduces its weight by up to 15% and improves bounce back by up to 20%. A removable sockliner provides the wearer with additional comfort and cushioning whilst reducing anti-microbial properties for an environment that is cooler, dryer and healthier. The sole of the shoe has a rear foot crash pad that helps to control and slow the rate of pronation. This helps to make the transition from heel-to-toe a smoother and more comfortable manoeuvre. Upper comfort is achieved thanks to independently placed eyelets that disperse any lace tension for a customised fit every time. Women’s shoes have 3mm of additional height compared to the men’s to help reduce and relive any Achilles tension.
With more than 20 years of success on the road the ASICS Gel Kayano is a popular choice for overpronators. Helping to keep them stable and comfortable for long distances it really is the shoe for long distance training. The 26th mile of your run will remain as comfortable as your first as you enjoy a light and bouncy feel due to its lightweight structure. Say goodbye to slipping and rubbing and say hello to comfort as your feet and hugged to perfection.
