ASICS GEL-Kayano 29

The iconic brand ASICS is on all fronts. In addition to regularly presenting interesting lifestyle collabs with known or emerging labels, like the GEL-Spotlyte Low revisited by COSTS (article available HERE), the Japanese sportswear label is improving its performance range, including the flagship model of its running catalog, the GEL-Kayano.

For almost 30 years, the GEL-Kayano has been the leader of the ASICS running offer. Every year, the Asics team in Kobe, Japan works hard to develop and improve the performance of the next model in this line.

The brand new GEL-Kayano 29 has just been introduced. It has been further improved in terms of responsiveness and stability.

Already, this running shoe is ultra light, it’s 10 grams less than its predecessor thanks to the advanced technologies implemented by the Japanese company and by reducing the layers. The sneaker consists of an elastic knit upper that guarantees breathability and comfortable fit. Among other improvements and novelties to the model, the midsole incorporates LITETRUSS technology on the midfoot, which provides premium stability and comfort. Anti-twist plastic is replaced with this new rigid foam technology that helps prevent the athlete’s foot from moving too far inward during the stride, providing protection during long runs. To further enhance comfort, the GEL-Kayano 29 features an internal counter with additional external TPU support to stabilize the heel during the stride and energy return. FF BLAST PLUS cushioning integrated into the upper layer of the sole ensures enhanced activity with every step.

In a press release, Kenji Hirata, head of ASICS performance running shoes and product development, said : « The ASICS team is very proud of the GEL-KAYANO shoe, which through hard work and technology has long had a reputation for being at the forefront of stability. As we strive to help everyone discover the power of sport on the body and mind in 2022, the GEL-KAYANO 29 is a stable training partner that can handle any running routine. The luxurious running experience offered by this new shoe is designed to help everyone have a healthy mind in a healthy body. »

The ASICS GEL-Kayano 29 will be released on August 19, 2022 at select retailers and on, for a price of $190. It’s expected to be introduced in a variety of colorways, from muted to bold. Enjoy !
