The Gel Kayano has grown to legendary status in the Asics' stable.
And the new Gel Kayano 17 once again delivers, with an updated profile that suits existing devotees, while enticing newcomers with an enhanced upper fit and improved forefoot comfort.
Every year, loyal wearers eagerly wait to try the next evolution of the shoe they love and trust.
Now, with the 17th Gel Kayano, Asics do it again with an outstanding model for the over-pronator. With IGS - their Impact Guidance System - the transition through the 3 phases of gait is very smooth and efficient.
Rearfoot and forefoot gel cushioning systems attenuate shock during impact and toe-off phases, and allows movement in multiple planes as the foot transitions through the gait cycle.
Full-length guidance line with vertical flex groove decouples the tooling along the line of progression, enhancing gait efficiency.
Solythe midsole material means a lighter weight midsole compound than Asics' standard EVA and SpEVA.
The Gel Kayano 17 also features enhanced cushioning and durability, and X-40 ComforDry sockliner with anti-microbial properties for a cooler, drier and healthier environment.
Asymmetrical Lacing Design reduces the potential for irritation, improving comfort and fit.
Discrete Eyelet improves upper fit while reducing possible irritation.
