The GEL-CUMULUST 23 shoe aims to ensure an even smoother and softer ride while implementing gender-specific technology in men's and women's models. Continuing to draw inspiration from cumulus clouds, we rethought the upper and midsole formation of this neutral running shoe by applying a more holistic design approach that adapts to the runner's anatomy in motion. Enveloping the foot with an even softer feel, the engineered knit upper adds strategic support in targeted areas while leaving some fibers more open to improve breathability. The upper works closely with the movement of the midsole, creating a smoother stride from footstrike to toe-off.
To improve cushioning and flexibility, we added a 3D SPACE CONSTRUCTION to the top layer of the midsole. This technology is implemented through a series of strategically placed pillars within the midsole, allowing runners to experience increased compression in a specific area without reducing durability or stability.
These pillar formations are adjusted differently in men's and women's models to respond to the biomechanical data of each gender. By helping runners properly compress the foam during their stride, this shoe promotes a smoother ride and improves shock absorption. A softer GELT technology unit is positioned under the heel to improve cushioning while the FLYTEFOAMT midsole material helps to give a smoother and more supportive ride. Featuring a sustainable compound outsole, ASICS LITE Rubber is soft and designed to enhance durability in high impact areas.
