GEL-KAYANO 27 MK
Enjoy excellent comfort and advanced support with the GEL-KAYANO™ 27 MK running shoe. The upper is constructed with a redesigned mesh knit while the sole is more flexible to help promote a more natural roll through the gait cycle. Featuring a breathable knit mesh upper for a lifestyle aesthetic while helping runners keep cool, this shoe also incorporates a flexible midsole that helps promote a more natural roll through the gait cycle. This effect starts in the heel with added flex grooves that assist in isolating initial impact to force a softer and smoother feeling at foot strike. 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 footstrike to toe-off. This added stability is complemented by deeper forefoot flex grooves for a smoother roll through toe-off, helping the shoe move better with the natural motion of the foot. Lastly, a large section of reflective material in the rearfoot helps keep runners visible when running in low-light conditions. The GEL-KAYANO™ 27 MK model is an excellent choice for both competitive and non-competitive runners looking for an everyday trainer that combines comfort with support.
REARFOOT AND FOREFOOT GEL TECHNOLOGY CUSHIONING SYSTEMS
Attenuates shock during impact and toe-off phases, and allows movement in multiple planes as the foot transitions through the gait cycle.
DYNAMIC DUOMAX™ SUPPORT SYSTEM
This evolution of DuoMax® system enhances stability and support, with reduced weight and increased platform support.
ENGINEERED MESH UPPER
Multi-directional mesh material improves ventilation and stability.
SPACE TRUSSTIC TECHNOLOGY
Reduces the weight of the sole unit while providing stability and retaining the structural integrity of the shoe.
The Flytefoam Propel midsole material is made with high energy return elastomer added to the foam. This patented formulation is extremely resilient, comfortable and lightweight compared with other foams in the market. It also produces an enhanced bounce and push-off.
Low arches or flat feet
Big toe and second toe do majority of the work.
How your foot ontacts the ground
The foot lands on outside of heel, then rolls inward (pronates) excessively, transferring weight to inner edge instead of ball of the foot.
