The Asics GEL-Kayano 18 Men's Running Shoes are Asics flagship running shoe in the structured cushioning category and continue to offer top-of-the line performance. Now in its 18th year, the GEL-Kayano 18 Men's Running shoe is significantly lighter, weighing in at just 11.5 ounces. With a decrease in weight, the GEL-Kayano 18 retains the classic ride, cushioning and structure of past GEL-Kayano models.
Featuring Asics' Impact Guidance System, the GEL-Kayano 18 Men's Running Shoes help to enhance the natural gait of the foot from heel strike to toe-off for superior performance and comfort. Asics' GEL Cushioning System is incorporated into the forefoot and rearfoot of the shoes, providing superior shock absorption during impact for ultimate cushioning. Asics High Abrasion Rubber, featured on the outsole, provides increased traction in the shoe, while the BioMorphic Fit technology provides a unique stretch material strategically placed on the upper to reduce buckling and potential for irritation.
The Asics GEL-Kayano 18 Men's Running Shoes also feature a ComforDry Sockliner for added cushion, as well as anti-microbial properties for a cooler, drier run. The specialized DuoMax Support System, found in the midsole, features a dual-density material that's positioned to enhance support and stability specifically for runners.
The GEL-Kayano 18 also features a DuraSponge Outsole for improved cushioning and durability in the forefoot, as well as Personal Heel Fit technology for a plush, personalized feel. Asics' Personal Heel Fit consists of two layers of memory foam in the collar of the shoe, which mold to the runner's heel creating the customized fit.
A lightweight, Solyte midsole provides enhanced cushioning and durability, while the Space Trusstic aids in the provision of more efficient foot functioning and stabilization in the mid-foot. The unique Guidance Line found in the Asics GEL-Kayano 18 Men's Running Shoes help to promote natural foot movement and enhance gait efficiency for superior performance.
Providing athletes a stable, comfortable ride for over 18 years, the GEL-Kayano 18 Men's Running Shoe has been and will continue to be among the top-leading shoes on the market.
