The GEL-KINSEI™ Blast delivers premium comfort and a bouncy experience that gives the recreational runner or those running to stay in shape, both performance and aesthetic benefits. Inspired by the GEL-KINSEI™ iterations from the mid-2000s, the smart and stylish GEL-KINSEI™ Blast unites Japanese craftsmanship with a modern design, for runners who seek top-level running technology.
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.
An engineered knit upper taking inspiration from a samurai’s armour, renowned for protecting the body while allowing it to move freely. This helps provide excellent comfort and support, working with the eyelet system to stretch with the midfoot to create a more locked-in feel. The GEL-KINSEI™ Blast also features visual influences from the history of Japan – with detailing in the midsole mirroring a samurai’s curvaceous katana sword.
