With the original GEL-KAYANO 5 OG upper, and the new Gel Quantum sole, the new GEL-KAYANO 5 is remixed, reshaped, and resoled. Born from the 90’s and evolved for the now with visible technology and it’s fit for fashion, fit for fitness, and yours to own.
The shoe is built up from two leading tech-runners in today’s market. The shoe utilises a mix of Mesh, Suede, and Leather detailing. The upper is comprised of a multi-directional stretch mesh that adjusts to the shape of the foot. SOLYTE Lasting offers soft durable cushioning, stitched just under the sock-liner for enhanced comfort.
The tech continues under the upper with the iconic 360-degree GEL technology cushioning system. Designed to provide shock absorbency throughout the entirety of the shoe. This results in your foot receiving little impact from angles as you move through your stride, it also helps with heel to toe transitions making them smoother and more efficient.
The shoe also features ASICS IGS (impact guidance system), this helps the shoe work with your foot rather than controlling it, resulting in more natural movement. Finally, the shoe sits atop a AHAR rubber. Made from the same kind of rubber as car tyres, this is engineered to deliver grip and a large number of surfaces with ease.
To celebrate the release of the GEL-KAYANO 5 360 we teamed up with @J_Rago to introduce this new fusion of technology.
