Size and fit

The Asics Gel Kenun MX SP was made to be true to size. Runners can get a pair using their regular sizing preferences. Half and full sizes are available for this model. When it comes to width, the variants are D – Medium for men and B – Medium for women. The semi-curved shape of the last mimics the natural curvature of the human foot.

The lasting material of this shoe is made in collaboration with Ortholite®. A plush yet breathable board connects the upper to the platform. Ventilation and support are further encouraged by this component.
