The latest addition to the ASICS GEL-KAYANO running footwear range, the GEL-KAYANO 23 features enhanced stability and comfort over long distances.
HELPS RUNNERS CONQUER LONG DISTANCES
Featuring improvements in multiple functions critical for the distance runner, these shoes are built to conquer long distances in addition to giving runners superior stability and comfort.
Said Gerard Klein, Senior General Manager, Global Footwear Product and Merchandising Division at ASICS Corporation “The unsurpassed performance and updated design of the GEL-KAYANO 23 are recommended for runners wanting to push themselves to go even farther.”
The shoes have an upgraded guidance line – a feature that leads foot pressure load centrally through the foot to guide runners and improve gait efficiency. The latest model also offers improved fit around the ankle thus bringing enhanced stability to runners.
IMPROVED COMFORT AND CUSHIONING
GEL is also built into the outer heel to improve shock absorption and a new inclined position allows for more central distribution of the weight of the runners, and delivering better cushioning and balance.
LIGHT WEIGHT MIDSOLES
The midsole comprises of two layers that work together to keep the weight of the shoes down – they currently weigh 330 grams.
The top layers of the midsoles contain spEVA, a material that delivers superior levels of cushioning and resilience and the patented FlyteFoam midsole technology – which is 55 per cent lighter than the industry standard – make up the bottom later.
EXCELLENT FIT, SUPPORT AND CUSHIONING
Said Klein, “Given the excellent fit, support, comfort and cushioning of the GEL-KAYANO 23, we are confident that runners will feel the difference it makes to their runs and workouts.”
