The Asics Gel-Kayano is designed for those that pronate during their normal walk and running gait. This is when the ankle rolls to the inside when pressure is applied during the foot strike. With FlyeFoam technology Asics have brought true comfort to their long-distance lightweight running shoe.
Vertical flex groove decouples the tooling along the line of progression for enhanced gait efficiency.
Rearfoot and Forefoot Gel® Cushioning System
Attenuates shock during impact and toe-off phases, and allows movement in multiple planes as the foot transitions through the gait cycle.
SPEVA® Midsole Material
Improves bounce-back characteristics and decreases midsole breakdown.
New blown AHAR outsole material. Delivers enhanced cushioning, durability and ride to the foot.
EVA sock liner moulded to the shape of the foot, which can be removed to accommodate a medical orthotic.
Metal Clutch and Memory Foam Lining
The new x-shaped construction of the external clutch counter will perfectly wrap the inside and outside of your ankle bone. Thanks to the memory foam lining, the MetaRun delivers a personalised heel fit every time you step into the shoe.
Reduces the weight of the sole unit while retaining the structural integrity of the shoes.
Constructed using groundbreaking midsole foam, the FlyteFoam is 55%* lighter than the industry standard. Its organic fibres bounce the MetaRun back into its original shape to provide perfect cushioning from the start of your run to the finish. *+/- 10%.
A new one-layer engineered mesh minimises rubbing between the foot and the upper to create a super snug, glove-like fitting experience. A unique combination of closed and open weave patterns optimises flexibility and breathability.
