ASICS GEL-Kayano 18 – USA

words // Brandon Richard

With London 2012 in full swing, ASICS steps up to the plate with another USA-inspired runner that joins the “Red, White & Blur” GEL-Blur 33 2.0. Getting the call for this round is the GEL-Kayano 18, the 18th version of the brand’s classic running series. The lightweight runner sports an open-mesh upper that offers breathability for enhanced foot cooling. Tech features include Personal Heel Fit (PHF) memory foam for a personalized fit, ComforDry lining and Biomorphic stretch material to reduce buckling. Supporting your run below is a Solyte midsole, a GEL Cushioning System, DuoMax support in the midfoot, DuraSponge in the forefoot and an Impact Guidance System (I.G.S.) to enhance the foot’s natural gait. ASICS High Abrasion Rubber (AHAR) is located in the heel and increases durability.

This “USA” version of the GEL-Kayano 18 features a red, white and blue mesh build with synthetic overlays throughout. Stars and Stripes detailing fills in the tiger stripes along the side panels, while minimal gold hits appear on the tongue branding and ghillie loop. Grey subtly jumps into the mix, most notably on the medial midsole, which sits atop a red, white and blue rubber outsole.

Still plenty of action left from London, so show your national pride by picking up these patriotic ASICS running shoes today.
