The GEL-KINSEI™ BLAST LE 2 shoes are designed for distance runners seeking a smooth stride. Our focus for this trim level approach was to make this design 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.

An arrangement of GEL™ technology and FF BLAST™ cushioning create a soft yet responsive step. After easing into the landing phase, the shoe propels you forward with a smooth transition.

The midsole's shape is inspired by a samurai's curvaceous katana sword. With a Pebax plate in the center, this feature redirects your movement forward and gives your run a faster feel.


  • Nexkin mesh upper improves airflow to help your feet keep cool
  • At least 20% of the shoe's main upper material is made with recycled content to reduce waste and carbon emissions
  • The sockliner is produced with the solution dyeing process that reduces water usage by approximately 33% and carbon emissions by approximately 45% compared to the conventional dyeing technology
  • Pebax propulsion plate helps redirect the runner’s energy forward and create a faster feel
  • FF BLAST™ cushioning provides lightweight impact absorption and a responsive rebound
  • FF BLAST™ PLUS cushioning generates lightweight impact absorption and good durability
  • Rearfoot and forefoot GEL® technology improves impact absorption and creates a softer feeling at footstrike
  • OrthoLite™ sockliner offers soft step-in comfort
  • Reflective details are designed to improve visibility in low-light conditions
  • Strategic outsole engineering improves grip and durability
  • AHARPLUS™ outsole improves durability

Designed For Neutral/Underpronation

Neutral

Foot Type: Normal-size arches.

Push-Off: You experience even distribution from the front of the foot.

Considered Injuries: Getting hurt is less likely due to effective shock absorption, but not impossible.

How Your Foot Contacts the Ground: Your foot lands on the outside of the heel and then rolls inward, absorbing impact on the body.

Underpronation

Foot Type: High arches.

Push-Off: The pressure is on smaller toes on outside of foot.

Considered Injuries: Plantar fasciitis, shin splints, ankle strain.

How Your Foot Contacts the Ground: The outer side of the heel hits the ground at an increased angle with little or no normal pronation, causing a large transmission of shock through the lower leg.
