Asics present the 26th version of their ultimate cushion and supportive road running shoe  – the Kayano. This version has improved flexibility thanks to the new Shear Deformation Gel which better adapts to your foot, it also provides superior cushioning. The new improved insole gives a plusher fit and feels softer underfoot. The enhanced midsole's top layer of Flytefoam propel offers dynamic cushioning and fantastic comfort. Overall Kayano 26 is bouncier, more flexible and 10g lighter than it's predecessor, giving you plenty of cushioning and comfort over even the longest of runs on hard surfaces. 


Gel cushioning in the Gel Kayano 26 has undergo the process of deformation where the design lines and contouring of the gel and the midsole have been shaped appropriately to match the angle in which your foot hits the ground. This improvement provides the greatest cushioning and shock attenuation for a more flexible heel to toe movement. 

On the outsole the flex grooves are uninterrupted all the way across the shoe providing defined flex regions for your forefoot. This, along with the one piece of midsole foam under the forefoot of the shoe, offers improved flexibility and provides a smoother toe off. In addition, as there is only one layer of foam there is no extra layer of glue that limits the shoe's flexibility.

Softer Flytefoam and Flytefoam propel midsole top layers have been innovated to give maximum underfoot comfort, dynamic cushioning and a better ground adaptation. Flytefoam propel midsole is now one piece allowing you to feel bounciness, softness and plushness, characteristics that the propel provides.

The fit of Kayano 26 has been greatly improved by deepening the toe box giving more space for the feet to spread.  The new improved engineered mesh offers an adaptive fit for additional comfort, breathability and protection.
