The Asics Gel Kayano 28 is a track and field trainer recommended for anyone with low arches or flat feet. It is described by Asics as creating a stable ride, while promoting a balanced mindset.
Packed with technology, this trainer gives you cushioning. Because of the rearfoot and forefoot gel, shocks are absorbed as you run. Moreover, this gel has been strategically placed for maximum comfort.
To improve responsiveness and stability, lightweight cushioning has been included in the midsole. This provides a smooth and supportive feel in each step.
For further stability, the midsole has been reinforced, preventing twisting when you run. This has been achieved by reducing the overall weight, in order to create smoother transitions. As a result, your risk of injury is reduced.
In addition, a section of this midsole has been made with a firm sponge. This controls the inward rolling of the heel that occurs when the foot touches down at the end of a step. Strides will become noticeably smoother.
Inside this model, an Ortholite X-55 insole can be found. This is highly breathable material that can withstand moisture and provide long-term cushioning. It is also removable and machine washable.
HEEL CLUTCHING SYSTEM
At the back, in order to prevent heel displacement, a special part shaped from resin has been inserted into the heel. This is because it fits the shape and width of a varied range of runners’ heels. Unlike in other models however, this has been redesigned to be more low-profile. With stability taken care of, you can focus on your performance.
3D SPACE CONSTRUCTION
To optimise for the individual running styles of men and women, specific areas under the heel help you to engage with the foam better, while providing a softer feel underfoot.
As for the outer sole, it has been crafted out of a rubber material that is also used for car tires. This has been mixed with a reinforcing material, that makes this sole abrasion resistant, and durable for long-term use.
