Asics Gel Cumulus 23 vs. 22: A friendlier ride

Following the footsteps of the 22, the Cumulus 23 veers away from the harsh and rigid ride of the 21. This popular daily trainer from Asics introduces the following changes to offer an even more forgiving ride than its predecessor: 

  • softer front and back with more bounce because of the added Flyte Foam stack and the removal of the Propel foam heel insert
  • to enhance "comfort, flexibility, and for a smoother ride," Asics updates the outsole pattern
  • a new gender-specific 3D Space Construction is introduced; for men's version, the pillars are only placed at the heel and for women, the pillars are at the heel and forefoot since women "prefer" a softer forefoot

Cumulus 23's classic ride: Who is it for? 

If you're a running beginner still looking for a specific running style, you won't go wrong with the Asics Cumulus 23. The same goes for long-time runners looking for a tried-and-true, durable training shoe that won't break the bank, or if you've been taking a long running break and just getting back into it, the Cumulus 23 will serve its purpose.
