Enjoy excellent comfort and advanced support with the GEL-KAYANO® 27 MK running shoe. The upper is constructed with a redesigned mesh knit while the sole is more flexible to help promote a more natural roll through the gait cycle. Featuring a breathable knit mesh upper for a lifestyle aesthetic while helping runners keep cool, this shoe also incorporates a flexible midsole that helps promote a more natural roll through the gait cycle. This effect starts in the heel with added flex grooves that assist in isolating initial impact to force a softer and smoother feeling at foot strike. At midstance, the foot should stop pronating and re-supinate for an efficient toe-off. To help this natural motion, we incorporate DYNAMIC DUOMAX® technology to help support the foot and increase stability for runners whose feet roll inward too much (overpronate). The midsole also integrates SPACE TRUSSTIC™ technology, which provides stability and reduces the overall weight to help promote a smoother transition from footstrike to toe-off. This added stability is complemented by deeper forefoot flex grooves for a smoother roll through toe-off, helping the shoe move better with the natural motion of the foot. Lastly, a large section of reflective material in the rearfoot helps keep runners visible when running in low-light conditions. The GEL-KAYANO® 27 MK model is an excellent choice for both competitive and non-competitive runners looking for an everyday trainer that combines comfort with support.
Rearfoot and Forefoot GEL® Technology Cushioning System
Attenuates shock during impact and toe-off phases, and allows movement in multiple planes as the foot transitions through the gait cycle.
Dynamic DuoMax™ Support System
This evolution of DuoMax® system enhances stability and support, with reduced weight and increased platform support.
FlyteFoam® Propel Technology
ASICS energetic foam formulation that provides supreme bounce thanks to a unique elastomer compound.
FlyteFoam® Midsole Technology
Our FlyteFoam® technology provides exceptional bounce back and responsiveness no matter the distance, utilizing organic super fibers to help reduce packing out that traditionally happens with softer, low density foams.
SPACE TRUSSTIC™ Technology
Reduces the weight of the sole unit while providing stability and retaining the structural integrity of the shoe.
Gender Specific Trusstic
Specifically designed trusstic system to cater to the differences in male and female biomechanics
External Heel Clutch
External heel counter delivering better overall fit and targeted support
