CUSHIONING

  • 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.
MIDSOLE
  • Solyte is an ultra light, top-of-the-line midsole that delivers durable and responsive cushioning.
  • Full Length Guidance Line is a flex groove that runs vertically from the heel to the forefoot for improved gait efficiency.
  • Space Trusstic System utilizes a gender-specific, thermal plastic midfoot unit for natural foot movement and increased torsional rigidity.
  • Impact Guidance System (IGS) design creates a smooth and balanced heel-to-toe transition.
UPPER
  • Open mesh on the upper provides breathable coverage.
  • Personal Heel Fit (PHF) uses a two layer memory foam lining in the heel collar to provide a individualized fit.
  • Strobel Last with the upper stitched to Solyte 45 Foam, for enhanced cushioning and a soft underfoot feel.
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.

Comments: The stitch rubs above my big toe on my right foot. Other than than I love them but this is a big enough issue that I would not buy them again.

Comments: Loved the cumulus 13- the toe box on the 14 has made them impossible for me to wear. Also, stich line rubs on the top of my big toes, on both shoes. Great arch support. Just can't wear them without irritation on the toes (even with the extra space). I even tried going up two sizes- but the shoe was just too big.

Comments: Okay shoe, not great. Too many changes from the Cumulus 13, which I really liked. I didn't find the shoe too narrow or small, as some other reviewers (on other sites as well) have found it. The heel area is much too shallow - I thought after I broke them in, that would feel better, but no. The right one also rubs on the top of my foot no matter what I do. I wouldn't give these a terrible review, since I did manage to do a marathon in them, but I would not purchase them again.

Comments: The Cumulus 14 is not the same as the previous versions. Toebox is short and shallow so there is no room for an orthotic. The thicker forefoot does not flex well and this neutral shoe acts more like a stability
shoe. This shoe is definitely not for a forefoot striker as the midsole just forces you into a heel strike.
