The new GEL-KAYANO 27 model is an excellent choice for both competitive and noncompetitive runners looking for an everyday trainer that combines comfort with support. This is the 27th iteration of our flagship stability shoe, and the best yet...
Through our unique approach to human-centric design, research in technological innovation, and dedication to excellence, every iteration of the GEL-KAYANO series has improved on the previous version, offering runners increased protection and performance every time. The series has broken boundaries in product innovation and has enabled runners to perform at their best—revolutionising the performance running category. The GEL-KAYANO 27 is no different, here's a look at what's new:
The redesigned mesh upper helps keep feet cool, while the sole is more flexible to help promote a more natural roll through the gait cycle. This starts in the heel with added flex grooves that assist in isolating initial impact to force a softer and smoother feeling at footstrike.
At midstance, the foot should stop pronating and re-supinate for an efficient toe-off. To help this natural motion, we incorporate DYNAMIC DUOMAX® technology to help support the foot and increase stability for runners whose feet roll inward too much (overpronate).
The midsole also integrates SPACE TRUSSTIC™ technology, which provides stability and reduces the overall weight to help promote a smoother transition from foot strike to toe-off. This added stability is complemented by deeper forefoot flex grooves for a smoother roll through toe-off, allowing the shoe to move more naturally with the foot.
Lastly, a large section of reflective materials in the rearfoot helps keep runners visible when running in low-light conditions.
