Colorful ASICS GEL-Kinsei 5

Monday, January 26, 2015


I've planned most of this year's races and have now focused on making sure that I have the appropriate gear to get me through them! My favorite pair of running shoes will likely not last until my first big race this year, so it's time to start breaking in a new pair. The ASICS GEL-Kinsei 5! They also look like the perfect pair for a Color Run! Check out the 7 additional designs. 



Years in the making, ASICS’ innovation lab is proud to present the new GEL-Kinsei 5. Designed to defy convention and engineered for ultimate performance, the GEL-Kinsei series continues to break the mold by delivering maximum comfort and the latest technology. Each component now works even better together and with the runner’s foot. The advanced platform is now built with FluidRide construction and the new modern upper creates a nearly seamless construction, improving comfort and fit as it moves and bends with the foot through every mile.




Impact Guidance System (I.G.S)


ASICS design philosophy that employs linked componentry to enhance the foot’s natural gait from heel strike to toe-off.

Propulsion Trusstic


Mimics connective tissue in the foot by creating tension as foot enters propulsion stage.

Rearfoot and Forefoot GEL Cushioning Systems


Attenuates shock during impact and toe-off phases, and allows movement on multiple planes as the foot transitions through the gait cycle.

Gender Specific Cushioning


Women's models feature a lower-density top layer in the midsole, allowing female athletes to better enjoy the benefits of midsole compression.

FluidRide


The latest evolution in ASICS midsole technology, FluidRide provides the ultimate combination of bounce back and cushioning properties with reduced weight and exceptional durability.

Discrete Heel Unit


Takes the Impact Guidance System (I.G.S) to a new level by creating our highest degree of shock attenuation and stability.

Heel Clutching System


Exoskeletal heel counter provides improved support and creates improved heel fitting environment.

AHAR


Acronym for ASICS High Abrasion Rubber. Placed in critical areas of the outsole for exceptional durability.

ComforDry Sockliner


Provides cushioning performance and anti-microbial properties for a cooler, drier, healthier environment.

P.H.F. (Personal Heel Fit)


Two layers of memory foam line the collar and mold to the athlete’s heel, creating a personalized fit.
