Asics releases the special edition colorways of the hailed Gel Kayano 26. This change brings an extra pop to the aesthetics of the silhouette, though the rest of the elements are masterfully retained to deliver the same, fine-tuned support that those with uneven pronation need. Impact protection and traction are the responsibilities of this product’s sole.
The standard measurements were used when the Asics Gel Kayano 26 SP was made. Runners are welcome to use the size options with which they are most acquainted to enjoy an accommodating in-shoe feel. Still, it is highly recommended to personally try the shoe prior to making a purchase decision.
Enjoying a secure yet agreeable sideways fit would need observation of the shape of the shoe, the quality of the upper, and the design of the platform. This shoe’s use of a form-welcoming woven upper and a semi-curved platform shape contributes to the overall quality of the in-shoe experience.
The external pad of the Asics Gel Kayano 26 SP is made of AHAR® or Asics High Abrasion Rubber. This technology is meant to protect the midsole’s made from the abrasive nature of the surfaces. It also touted to offer reliable traction throughout the running session.
Flex grooves and a decoupled heel part are meant to isolate impact forces to the exact point of contact and provide flexibility throughout the run.
FlyteFoam® Propel is an elastomer-based compound that is meant to deliver a springy performance. It works with the FlyteFoam® Lyte, a lightweight feature made of organic nanofibers, to deliver a consistent ride that is responsive and accommodating of the nature movements. Both these elements are used in the updates to the well-known Gel Nimbus line.
DuoMax® is a dense compound strategically fashioned near the medial midfoot to deliver stability throughout the running session. Overpronation is its target and it’s made to avert it and maintain a steady gait.
The Trusstic System® is a thermoplastic cage that is placed between the outsole and midsole. The purpose of this accoutrement is to maintain the foam midsole’s structure while also easing the pressure on the tendons and muscles of the underfoot.
Gel® impact mitigating elements are placed in the forefoot and rear to better the quality of each step.
The upper unit of this Asics running shoe uses engineered mesh. This cloth-like wrap delivers a secure and breathable wrap that is also non-irritating.
Printed overlays grace the sides and the toe box. These add-ons offer extra security without adding bulk to the facade.
A thermoplastic heel counter secures the heel and prevents it from exiting the foot-chamber unintentionally.
