With more than a quarter century heritage, millions of miles have been run in ASICS Kayano. Its still a go-to option for moderate-to-high overpronation support. A relatively light weight and implementation of ASCIS' modern cushioning technologies provide a smooth ride for the degree of support offered.
Enjoy the luxurious comfort and exceptional support offered by the new GEL-KAYANO™ 26 running shoe. The rearfoot cushioning has been updated in this classic stability shoe for enhanced shock absorption and long-lasting softness.
On the upper a new breathable mesh upper helps keep runners cool on hot days while the FLYTEFOAM™ Propel technology sole complements the rearfoot cushioning by providing excellent rebound. Meanwhile, a thick layer of soft, odor resistant ORTHOLITE™ technology lies just under the foot, putting a spring in your step.
If your feet tend to roll inwards as you run, fret not. DUOMAX™ technology in the midsole offers smooth overpronation control by combining two different materials to help support the foot, reducing instability just after the foot makes contact with the ground. This stability device is complemented by GUIDANCE TRUSSTIC SYSTEM™ technology, which helps the foot move through the gait cycle smoothly. Meanwhile, the AHAR™ rubber sponge outsole helps to reduce wear giving the shoe a longer lifespan.
Finally, a large section of 3M™ reflective material in the rearfoot helps keep you visible when you're out after-dark. The GEL-KAYANO™ 26 running shoe is the perfect choice for both competitive and noncompetitive runners looking for a comfortable, supportive everyday trainer.
