The GEL-CUMULUS™ 23 shoe's focus is to provide an even smoother and softer ride while implementing gender tailored technology in the men's and women's models. Continuing to draw inspiration from cumulus clouds, we reimagined this neutral running shoe's upper and midsole formation by applying a more holistic design approach that adapts to the runner's anatomy in motion.
Wrapping the foot with an even softer feel, the engineered mesh upper adds strategic support in targeted areas while leaving some of the fibers more open to improve breathability. The upper also works more closely with the midsole's movement, which creates a smoother stride from footstrike to toe-off.
To improve cushioning and flexibility, we added a 3D Space Construction to the top layer of the midsole. This technology is implemented through a series of strategically planted pillars within the midsole, allowing runners to experience more compression in a specific area without reducing durability or stability. These pillar formations are tuned differently in the men's and women's models to address each gender's biomechanical data. By helping runners appropriately compress the foam during the landing phase of their stride, this shoe promotes a smoother ride and improves shock absorption.
A softer GEL™ technology unit is positioned under the heel to improve cushioning while the FLYTEFOAM™ midsole material helps create a smoother and more supportive ride. Formed with a sustainable compound in the outsole, the ASICS LITE Rubber is soft and designed to improve durability in high-impact areas.
For men the standard shoe width is D, going up to a wide fitting 2E and the widest a 4E. In New Zealand the most common shoe width size* for men is a 2E. Find out more about widths.
Pronation is part of the natural movement of the human body and refers to the way your foot rolls inward for impact distribution upon landing. Understanding your pronation type can help you find a comfortable running shoe. The GEL-CUMULUS 23 is made for Underpronation, and Neutral.
Answer 5 quick questions and we'll match you with the shoes that fit the way you move
What type of shoes are you looking for?
Men and women have different needs to support their gait, foot structure, and biomechanics. ASICS designs gender-specific running shoes to improve performance, comfort and safety.
Where will you be running?
If the majority of your running takes place off road, trail shoes can provide performance and safety that road designed shoes cannot.
What is more important to you?
Built for distance, these shoes have extra cushioning - providing more protection. You love to challenge yourself to run for longer.
Built for speed, these shoes are lighter for a more responsive ride. You love to run fast, train for speed and feel like flying.
Do you need extra support?
Pronation is the natural movement of your feet while running. Stability shoes are for runners who overpronate (your foot rolls inwards when you land)
For underpronators and neutral runners who are predisposed to an outward or neutral rolling motion as the foot progresses toward toe-off.
Research shows that around 4 in 5 runners risk injury in shoes that don't suit their running style.
Pronation is the natural movement of your feet while running. Stability shoes are recommended for runners who overpronate, which means your foot rolls inwards when you land. For more information, visit our Pronation Guide.
What level of comfort would you like?
All runners have different cushioning preferences. The more cushioning, the softer the ride.
ASICS has developed innovative cushioning technologies that are strategically placed to reduce impact. By minimising impact, our cushioning technologies increase the level of comfort and give you an even softer ride.
