MIDSOLE

  • Rearfoot Gel cushioning system uses a silicone-based gel for responsive shock absorption on impact.
  • Forefoot Gel cushioning system uses a silicone-based gel for responsive shock absorption on impact.
  • Discrete Heel unit is a component of IGS that provides excellent shock absorption in the heel.
  • FluidRide provides responsive cushioning with reduced weight and increased durability.
  • Guidance Line is a vertical flex groove in the forefoot for improved gait efficiency.
  • Dynamic DuoMax Support System reduces over pronation by controlling the movement of the foot, leading to a smoother heel to toe transition.
  • Guidance Trusstic System is a lightweight support system that provides additional torsional rigidity.
  • Impact Guidance System (IGS) design creates a smooth and balanced heel-to-toe transition.

OUTSOLE

  • ASICS High Abrasion Rubber (AHAR)  in the heel is made of carbon rubber for exceptional durability.
  • DuraSponge Outsole in the forefoot is made from a blown AHAR compound, for responsive cushioning and flexibility.
  • Rear Foot Crash Pad slows the rate of pronation, providing a smoother transition from heel-to-toe.

UPPER

  • Open mesh on the upper provides breathable coverage.
  • FluidFit consists of multi-directional stretch mesh that provides a personalized, glove-like fit.
  • Personal Heel Fit (PHF) uses a two layer memory foam lining in the heel collar to provide a individualized fit.
  • Discrete Eyelets are independently placed to disperse lace tension and enhance comfort.
  • Reinforced Vamp increases durability through the addition of a thin and seamless mesh overlay.
  • Heel Clutching System uses an exoskeletal structure that wraps the heel for a secure fit.
  • ComforDry Sockliner is made with anti-bacterial material to reduce odor and moisture and provide additional cushioning.
  • Strobel Last with the upper stitched to SpEVA 55 Foam, for enhanced cushioning and a moderately soft underfoot feel.

Comments: Got these to rotate with my Hurricane 16's. On my first run I found that the heel was very soft and overall the feel of the shoe was really mushy. Guess I'm not used to such a super soft shoe. Returned for another pair of Hurricane 16's-great Running W/H exchange policy! The Hurricanes have a firmer heel, but still have great forefoot foot cushioning. Building my long runs up to 13-14 miles as I run half marathons. I am a moderate pronator with flat arches and weigh 160 lbs.

Comments: Just tried these today for a run and wow; for me the best kayano since the 10. The shoe is better cushioned than the nimbus and it hugs the foot in a way that it hasn't in years. The posting isn't noticeable so it feels like a stable neutral shoe. Asics hit a grand slam and I say this being unhappy with many of the shoes during the last several years.
