ASICS Gel-Kayano 26 LS



Enjoy luxurious comfort and improved bounce with the GEL-KAYANO™ 26 LS running shoe, featuring GEL™ technology to the forefoot and rear for high-density shock absorption and a comfortable feel over long distances.
Featuring a jacquard mesh upper and FLYTEFOAM™ Propel technology for a lightweight quality that allows your feet to breathe, this ASICS running shoe is all about going the distance, providing exceptional support and comfort over long periods of time. The EVA sockliner offers excellent rebound and cushioning, while the GUIDANCE TRUSSTIC SYSTEM™ technology brings a new level of stability, working with the contoured midsole to help control torsion. Meanwhile, the SpEVA 45 lasting improves bounce-back characteristics to put a spring in your step (quite literally).
If your feet tend to roll inwards as you run, fret not. The DUOMAX™ midsole offers smooth overpronation control by combining two different density materials to reduce the risk of flat feet and bunions. Meanwhile, the AHAR™ rubber sponge helps to reduce excessive wear for a longer lifespan.
This new edition of the GEL-KAYANO™ 26 LS running shoe features LITE-SHOW™ reflective detailing to keep you visible and safe when you run after dark, so you can make sure you hit your training targets even as the days get shorter.
