Product description

  • Updating a legendary style, ASICS® returns with their 18th version of the GEL-Kayano®. They've pared down the weight while maintaining the classic ride, comfort and reliable stability to deliver the unsurpassed performance you've come to expect.
  • Update to the GEL-Kayano 17, SKU# 7708788.
  • A running shoe built for the moderate overpronator who requires a combination of cushioning and enhanced stability.
  • Breathable mesh upper.
  • Supportive synthetic leather overlays.
  • Biomorphic Fit® is created with a stretch material that is strategically placed throughout the upper to reduce buckling and provide an exceptional fit and feel.
  • Heel Clutching System™ is made up of an exoskeletal heel counter that promotes an improved fit and increased support.
  • Padded tongue and collar for added comfort.
  • PHF® (Personalized Heel Fit) creates a custom fit as the two layers of memory foam that line the collar mold to your heel.
  • ComforDry™ sockliner offers anti-microbial properties for a drier, healthier environment.
  • I.G.S® (Impact Guidance System) is an ASICS design philosophy that employs linked componentry to enhance the foot's natural gait from heel strike through toe-off.
  • Dynamic DuoMax® System increases stability and support with reduced weight and enhanced platform comfort.
  • Solyte® midsole is lighter that standard EVA and SpEVA® designed by ASICS. Its responsive nature delivers a supremely cushioned ride and makes it highly durable.
  • Rearfoot & forefoot Gel® cushioning systems work together to better attenuate impacting shock and allow the foot to move fluidly throughout the gait cycle.
  • Space Trusstic System™ mid-foot stabilizer creates a pocket between the Trusstic System unit and the midsole, promoting more controlled midsole deformation, as well as more efficient foot function.
  • Guidance Line® technology employs a vertical flex groove that decouples the tooling along the line of progression for maximum stride efficiency.
  • DuraSponge® forefoot outsole material is comprised of a blown AHAR® rubber for superior cushioning and long-lasting wear.
  • AHAR® (ASICS High Abrasion Rubber) is known for its supreme durability and is strategically placed throughout high-wear areas of the outsole.

In 1949, Mr. Kihachiro Onitsuka began his athletic footwear company (Onitsuka Co., Ltd.) by manufacturing basketball shoes out of his living room in Kobe, Japan. He chose the name ASICS for his company in 1977, based on a famous Latin phrase "Anima Sana In Corpore Sano," which, when translated, expresses the ancient ideal of "A Sound Mind in a Sound Body." Taking the acronym of this phrase, ASICS was founded on the belief that the best way to create a healthy and happy lifestyle is to promote total health and fitness. Today, ASICS offers a full line of performance-driven athletic shoes and technical active sports apparel and accessories dedicated to bringing harmony to the body and soul.
