The GEL-KINSEI™ BLAST LE 2 delivers premium comfort and a bouncy experience that gives the recreational runner or those running to stay in shape, both performance and aesthetic benefits. This version is designed to look as good in the streets as it does on race day. Influenced by technical performance, the upper's Nexkin mesh material evolves the design with improved ventilation to help your feet keep cool.
The midsole's shape is inspired by a samurai's curvaceous katana sword. A PEBAX™ propulsion plate with FF BLAST™ PLUS foam and GEL™ technology cushioning in its midsole, combines to redirect the runner’s energy forward to create a responsive, faster feel, while enabling a smooth and cushioned landing.
