Asics Gel-Cumulus 20 review
‘BACK TO BEST’
The Cumulus 20 celebrates its 20th anniversary and the shoes are back to their very best! The fit has improved going back to a similar sizing found in previous popular models and updates in the gel and cushioning, along with its great looks means the Asics Gel Cumulus 20 is once again top of every runner’s wish list.
Firstly, the Asics Cumulus 20 shoe uses two types of FlyteFoam this time. Which means you get the cushioning and absorption from FlyteFoam Lyte and your bounce forward from FlyteFoam Propel. The gel in the forefoot and heel also ensures that the shoes can absorb the impact whilst running.
Asics have also brought in an improved mesh upper which allows for breathability and movement around the forefoot, creating a sleeker, lighter and stronger running shoe. Asics have also widened the toe box on the new Cumulus shoe, ensuring your toes aren’t cramped and can move comfortably when running.
Bringing back the deeper heel counter found in more traditional Asics shoe provides secure and slip-free padding ensuring your heel area has adequate support. The upgraded TRUSSTIC uses a more rigid material which gives the shoe stability by preventing them from twisting during movement. Finally, the Asics Guidance Line adapts to each movement of your gait cycle, guiding the foot along its natural movement.
The Asics Gel-Cumulus 20 seems to be back to their reliable best. By reverting the sizing back to its traditional fit and bringing in modernisations such as the lighter upper and the revamped wider toe box ensures they are the mainstay in the Asics Neutral Range!
