The Asics GEL-Kayano 18 Women's Running Shoes are the newest addition to the legendary GEL-Kayano line of Women's Running Shoes from Asics. The GEL-Kayano shoes are extremely popular and will continue to be among the top selling Asics' models due to their top-of-the-line performance. The 18th version of this leading shoe has decreased significantly in weight while maintaining the classic ride, comfort and stability of its predecessors.
The Asics GEL-Kayano 18 Women's Running Shoe focuses primarily on stability and cushioning for those with moderate to severe overpronation - although it will accommodate the neutral runner as well. Maximum stability and control is retained through Asics' DuoMax Support System, Asics' Space Trusstic System, and Asics' Guidance Line.
The DuoMax System employs a dual-density midsole to provide a greater level of support in the Asics GEL-Kayano 18, while the Space Trusstic System stabilizes the mid-foot and allows for controlled mid-sole deformation. Lack of support and stabilization can be debilitating to overpronators; the GEL-Kayano 18 addresses these issues and provides runners with a more comfortable, enjoyable run.
The GEL-Kayano's are a safe choice when it comes to the health of your feet, as they have earned the APMA Seal Of Acceptance. The Seal of Acceptance ensures that the American Podiatric Medical Association approves of the shoes. The supportive GEL-Kayano 18 Women’s Running Shoes provide optimal comfort, employing Asics' GEL Cushioning System in both the rearfoot and forefoot. Not only does the GEL offer cushioning, it absorbs shock and allows movement in multiple planes as the foot transitions through the gait cycle.
Additional comfort is provided in the GEL-Kayano 18 Women's Running Shoes by two layers of memory foam lining the collar and molding to the athlete's heel. This Personal Heel Fit (P.H.F) creates a plush, personalized fit and is complimented by Asics' ComforDry Sockliner, which provides a great deal of cushioning as well. The innovative ComforDry Sockliner also promotes a cooler, drier run, utilizing anti-microbial properties.
Asics’ Biomorphic Fit features a stretch material strategically placed on the upper to reduce buckling and the ensuing irritation on the forefoot.
Finally, the Asics GEL-Kayano 18 Women's Running Shoes are built to last. The soles are composed of Asics' High Abrasion Rubber (AHAR), placed in critical areas of the outsole for exceptional durability. The GEL-Kayano 18 also employs the use of a sturdy DuraSponge Outsole, which is a blown AHAR rubber compound for enhanced cushioning and durability in the forefoot.
Flat-footed, overpronating runners will find no better choice than the GEL-Kayano 18 Women's Running Shoes. The GEL-Kayano 18 is an exciting update to the widely popular line and will continue to be a top choice among those seeking a supportive, comfortable running shoe.
