NEW Spring/Summer 2014 Colourway - Comfortable fit and superior ride!
The latest edition of the GEL KAYANO is lighter and gives you cushioning that is better than ever.
Innovative Fluid Ride technology is a 2-layered sole and gives you improved cushioning and much better bounce-back.
Plus, the lightweight mesh upper features new Fluid Fit technology, which means you get both comfort and unrestrictive running.
The Dynamic DuoMax technology gives extra support and stability for overpronators.
And the Guidance Line technology guides your foot from impact through to push-off. That gives you a more efficient running style.
3M SCOTCHLITE™ - A special reflective material that enhances visibility when light is poor.
AHAR+ - This is a thinner and lighter version of ASICS High Abrasion Resistance rubber. It is placed on heavy contact areas of the outsole to reduce excessive wear.
BIOMORPHIC FIT- The Biomorphic technology is incorporated into the upper where the areas of highest deformation are found. This ensures a better fit, improved comfort, less risk of injury and enhanced performance.
COMFORDRY SOCKLINER - This insole provides the optimum cushioning performance system, along with anti-microbial properties, creating a cooler, drier, healthier shoe environment.
DISCRETE EYESTAY LACING - Independently placed eyelets disburse lace tension, creating a customised fitting enviroment and enhanced upper comfort, while reducing possible irritation.

GEL (REARFOOT & FOREFOOT) CUSHIONING SYSTEM - Attenuates shock during impact and toe-off phases, and allows movement in multiple planes as the foot transitions through the gait cycle.
GENDER SPECIFIC CUSHIONING - The full length double density Solyte midsole features a lower gender specific density top layer for improved cushioning and comfort.
GUIDANCE LINE - Vertical flex groove decouples the tooling along the line of progression for enhanced gait efficiency.
GUIDANCE TRUSSTIC - This Trusstic System integrates Guidance Line construction for enhanced gait efficiency while providing midfoot structural integrity.
