The GEL-PULSE™ 12 MK running shoe offers excellent cushioning and comfort. This version features a knit upper for a lifestyle appeal while offering excellent breathability. The fit around the heel and over the top of the foot has been softened for a better feel that helps feet stay comfortable. This not only adds to the shoe's comfort, but also gives the latest GEL-PULSE™ 12 a cleaner look. Underfoot, the AMPLIFOAM™ midsole cushioning and our rearfoot GEL® technology cushioning system work in tandem, adding softness and helping the shoe absorb more shock in your step. With its contemporary technologies and styling, the GEL-PULSE™ 12 MK shoe helps you to take on whatever the day brings in comfort.
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-PULSE 12 MONO-SOCK 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.
MONO-SOCK® Technology Fit System
An elastic internal sleeve which replaces a traditional tongue providing a "sock-like" fit.
Engineered to maintain durability at softer densities, providing better flexibility, comfort, and platform adaptability ideal for natural running.
Rearfoot GEL® technology cushioning system
Attenuates shock during impact phase and allows for a smooth transition to midstance.
Guidance Line® Midsole Technology
Vertical flex groove decouples the tooling along the line of progression for enhanced gait efficiency.
AHAR® Plus Outsole
Strategically positioned in critical areas of the outsole, this exceptionally durable compound is 50% more durable than standard ASICS High Abrasion Rubber.

Runs smallThis shoe was really tight despite sizing up a half size from my normal shoe size. It was very uncomfortable and after wearing for only an hour I had blisters on the back of my feet and they rubbed holes in my socks. Really cute shoe, but I ended up returning them because of the discomfort.

Great shoe, great price!The mono-sock was a little tight at first but after wearing them a few times these things became super comfortable and feel amazing on your feet! Wearing thin socks seems to help as well.

Good for long daysThey do not tie, they slip on. Which is a little tight. With that being said they do have good support and padding. I'm a nurse so on my feet a lot. Did have to work them in, but so far so good.
