Since it first launched in 1993, the GEL-KAYANOTM shoe has set the bar for runners seeking a cushioned stability trainer. 

The GEL-KAYANOTM shoe offers one of the most stable running experiences in Asics lineup. Stability shoes of recent times have drawn criticism for being stiff and uncomfortable, as they were designed to ‘block’ motion rather than support it. For the GEL-KAYANO™ model, ASICS has changed this approach completely, utilising stability technology to provide runners with adaptive support when needed the most.   

Design Philosophy 

At ASICS, the design philosophy is based on kaizen, a Japanese word meaning “continuous improvement.” With each iteration of a shoe, they carefully consider customer feedback, wear test data, and technological improvements to guide design. For GEL-KAYANOTM 31, this meant carrying over core design elements while fine-tuning the details for an even better experience.    

What’s Familiar  Just like the GEL-KAYANOTM 30, the GEL-KAYANOTM 31 shoe features:  

Adaptive Stability  

The 4D GUIDANCE SYSTEM™ technology combines midsole geometry features to provide on-demand stability. Instead of bracing the feet to restrict movement, the integrated design works with movement of the body as the runner fatigues to continue providing optimum stability and enhanced comfort

Soft Landings   

PureGEL™, the next evolution of our legendary GEL™ technology, provides an even softer feel and reduces impact absorption.  

Energised Cushioning  

Lightweight FF BLAST™ PLUS foam delivers a cushioned, energetic ride.
