The Asics Gel Kayano 27 men’s running shoes have been re-engineered for mid-2020 to give overpronators an ultra-smooth, stable and comfortable ride on a max cushioned platform.
A popular choice for everyday training and clocking up the Ks, this edition of the Kayano running family hugs your feet in engineered jacquard mesh for breathability, strength and a snug yet non-restrictive fit.
The MetaClutch external plastic support system creates a custom, stabilised feel around the back of your heel while soft memory foam elevates your comfort.
A strategic placement of midsole foams provides a balance of responsiveness and cloud-like impacts. The FlyteFoam Propel top layer creates a springy ride and traditional FlyteFoam underneath delivers a plusher, protected feel closer to the ground. Organic super fibres ensure this specialised foam springs back into shape for consistent and resilient cushioning in every stride.
Asics have put their biomechanics research into play with gender-specific cushioning, heel-to-toe offset and Trusstic system – delivering softer cushioning for women and firmer cushioning for men.
Rearfoot and forefoot Gel is placed strategically to dampen impacts forces on foot strike and help you transition smoothly into your next stride.
The Dynamic DuoMax support system slows the rate of pronation, stabilising and guiding your motion to minimise the inward roll of your foot and set you up in an efficient position to toe-off.
The Trusstic system is encapsulated with no cutaways – creating a solid, less intrusive design that helps in the braking phase of your gait cycle and maintains structural integrity of your road shoe.
AHAR (Asics High Abrasion Rubber) is placed in high-wear zones of the outsole to extend the lifespan of your go-to running shoes. Thicker and softer forefoot rubber elevates the springy sensation on toe-off.
