Drawing inspiration from the renowned Shibuya cross-street, the GEL-KINSEI™ OG Modern Tokyo sneaker is also symbolic of the dedicated ASICS spirit that continues to redefine the future of design. Uniting Japanese heritage and craftsmanship with modern mechanical design, this silhouette draws inspiration from a samurai’s armor – shielding the body, while enabling it to move freely. The angled GEL® technology cushioning unit in the heel references the shape of the samurai’s curvaceous katana sword to better attenuate the severity of shock upon heel strike. Presenting TRUSSTIC™ SYSTEM technology under the sole’s arch to improve stability, this feature also lessens the shoe’s overall weight. Resurrected with visible evolution and a contemporary design, the GEL-KINSEI™ OG Modern Tokyo sneaker allows you to wear this shoe as a heritage icon that's still technical even by today's standards.
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-KINSEI OG MODERN TOKYO is made for Neutral.
Normal size arches
There is even distribution from the front of the foot.
How your foot contacts the ground
The foot lands on outside of the heel, then rolls inward (pronates) to absorb shock and support body weight.
