GEL-KAYANO LITE 1011A832.020
The GEL-KAYANO™ Lite model is new to our performance running line. Like its namesake, this shoe produces excellent comfort underfoot and added support designed to set the foot up for an efficient toe-off. Featuring an engineered mesh upper that was formed with recycled materials, this shoe also includes minimal overlays that target support where it's needed most. We created specific deformable shapes on the top of the midsole through the use of our 3D SPACE CONSTRUCTION™ to slow the rate of pronation, while the flared geometry of the midsole adds the right amount of support. A concave shape on the lateral heel and convex shape on the medial heel helps generate more compression during the landing phase, which increases the resistance when the foot starts rolling inward at mid-stance. Additionally, the wider base nets in the shoe’s heel and forefoot provide more surface area to create a stable landing and toe-off. The GEL-KAYANO™ Lite shoe is helping us take a step toward more sustainable manufacturing without compromising performance.

- FOOT TYPE
PUSH OFFThere is even distribution from the front of the foot.
HOW YOUR FOOT CONTACTS THE GROUNDThe foot lands on outside of the heel, then rolls inward (pronates) to absorb shock and support body weight.
- FOOT TYPE
PUSH OFFBig toe and second toe do majority of the work.
HOW YOUR FOOT CONTACTS THE GROUNDThe foot lands on outside of heel, then rolls inward (pronates) excessively, transferring weight to inner edge instead of ball of the foot.
REARFOOT AND FOREFOOT GEL® TECHNOLOGY CUSHIONING SYSTEMAttenuates shock during impact and toe-off phases, and allows movement in multiple planes as the foot transitions through the gait cycle.
FLYTEFOAM® MIDSOLE TECHNOLOGYOur FlyteFoam® technology provides exceptional bounce back and responsiveness no matter the distance, utilizing organic super fibers to help reduce packing out that traditionally happens with softer, low density foams.
AHAR SPONGEASICS high abrasion resistant (AHAR) rubber on the outsole that is softer and lighter to deliver a plush ride, flexibility and overall comfort.
