ASICS GEL-Kayano 26 running shoes feature the following updates for runners who want a supportive yet luxuriously cushioned training shoe. FLYTEFOAM™ Propel technology in the forefoot and directly under the heel provides a springier feel. More aggressive sculpting of the rearfoot foam and GEL™ technology for better sheer deformation and increased impact protection and a smoother transition to toe-off. The GEL™ technology cushioning unit in the heel was inspired from the shoe's storied past for a softer lay down at heel strike. The Upper features a lightweight engineered jacquard mesh that is knit in such a way to provide added support in some areas and added flexibility in others. FluidRide® midsole combines cushioning and lightweight responsiveness. Impact Guidance System (I.G.S.®) employs linked componentry to enhance the foot's natural gait from heel strike to toe-off. GEL® Cushioning Systems attenuate shock during impact and toe-off phases and allow movement in multiple planes as the foot transitions through the gait cycle. FlyteFoam® Midsole technology is lightweight and provides long-lasting, responsive cushioning.
