ASICS HyperGEL Kenzen: Built For Every Mile And Every Style

ASICS HyperGEL Kenzen Story

Whether you’re a serious runner or just in touch with the latest trends, there’s no doubt you’ve rocked a pair of ASICS. The footwear company is well-known for both their cutting-edge performance shoes and their stylish casual sneakers. And now, with their latest model, they’ve taken their expertise from both worlds and combined it into one game-changing shoe. Let’s meet the ASICS HyperGEL Kenzen and break down why it’s perfect for every part of your day.

A Completely New Level Of Cushioning

ASICS HyperGEL Kenzen Cushioning

ASICS’ signature GEL system has been the gold standard for cushioning and responsiveness in shoes for years now. Yet, somehow, they’ve found a way to create something even better with the all-new HyperGEL. That proven GEL cushioning is mixed in with eTPU for seemingly limitless bounce and springiness while giving your foot the plush comfort it deserves.

Style That Flashes

ASICS HyperGEL Kenzen Heel

Runners are going to love the reflective heel patch on the HyperGEL Kenzen while running at night – but it’s more than just a safety feature, it’s a style statement, too. A shoe this fresh deserves to shine, and this heel patch is that little touch you need to stand out next to all your friends and family.

A Fit You Won’t Believe

ASICS HyperGEL Kenzen Upper

Plenty of brands claim that their sneakers offer a ‘sock-like fit’ these days, but thanks to the premium knit materials that make up the HyperGEL Kenzen’s upper, this shoe truly does hug your foot comfortably like your go-to pair of socks. You’ll be getting an unbeatable feel and reduced friction, whether pushing the pace or just lounging around.

Peace In Every Step

ASICS HyperGEL Kenzen Symbols

The ASICS credo is ‘Sound Mind, Sound Body’ and you’ll be carrying those words with you everywhere thanks to the Japanese Kanji characters stamped on the heel and removable insole of this shoe. The character on the left foot translates to “mind” while the one on the right foot translates to “body.” Words to live by and work toward.

 


So no matter what you’ll use them for, it’s easy to see that the ASICS HyperGEL Kenzen shoes are up to the task. Make sure to grab your favorite pair on March 20 and get ready to rock it 24/7/365.
