Through Asics ‘advanced technology, the latest Gel-Kayano™ 29 is now approximately 10g lighter than its predecessor. It also features a more energized feel thanks to the addition of FF Blast™ Plus cushioning in the upper midsole layer, providing a more energized ride in each step.
What’s more, the shoe’s midsole now incorporates Litetruss™ technology on the medial side to improve the shoe’s renowned stability. Replacing the need for a traditional medial post, this midsole feature helps keep the wearer’s foot from rolling too far inward during each stride, ensuring protection over long training runs and marathons. The shoe also has a low-profile external heel counter, which comfortably cradles the foot for advanced rearfoot support.
To provide breathability and a comfortable fit, the Gel-Kayano™ 29 boasts an engineered stretch knit upper, made of a supportive upper material that helps reduce the need for traditional overlays.
As part of the recent unveiling of the Asics State of Mind Index, a landmark global study which indicates a positive link between exercise and mental health, Asics is inviting the world to move throughout 2022.
