What's Inside the GEL-Kayano 21 Running Shoe?
Rearfoot and Forefoot GEL Cushioning:
ASICS GEL-Cushioning provides the ultimate in shock absorption - easing the blow of every step upon impact.
Ultimately, running shoes are about fit, and our FluidFit upper technology utilizes a combination of multi-directional stretch mesh and stretch reinforcements to create a glove-like fit.
Dynamic DuoMax Support System:
Improving on the incredible and dependable support of DuoMax, Dyanmic Duomax, increases stability and support while reducing overall weight.
ASICS: History and Heritage
After the second world war, ASICS founder Kihachiro Onitsuka observed children wandering the streets - most of them without shoes - and decided to help the youth of his country. By promoting the values of Sport, and providing them with high quality athletic shoes to help them perform their best, he believed he could help the children of Japan build a better future with the philosophy of Anima Sana In Corpore Sano: “A Sound Mind in a Sound Body.” In 1949, Onitsuka Co. was born, and soon after, the first ever footwear was released from the fledgling brand: a basketball shoe called the “Tiger.” In the years that followed, Onitsuka Co. (re-named “ASICS” in 1977) designed a myriad of scientifically sound, sport-specific shoes for athletes: from every day runners, to high school and collegiate athletes, to professionals competing at the highest level. Mr. Onitsuka’s emphasis on the spirit of Sport and a focus on the needs of the athlete continue today with ASICS, Onitsuka Tiger, And ASICS Tiger performance shoes, clothing, and accessories. Our dedication to never stop bettering our best reflects our desire to help you, the athlete, to always Better Your Best.
The gel-kayano® 21 is updated with nothing but the best in ASICS technical innovation, featuring the next generation of FluidRide® and a comfordry™ x-40 sockliner for the lightest and most luxuriously stable ride yet. Mild to moderate overpronators will enjoy a more comfortably secure upper, uniquely designed with a new heel construction that complements the premium FluidFit® upper and heel clutching system™.
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.
