ASICS Gel-Kinsei Blast

Features

Inspired by a samurai’s armor and curved like a katana sword, the brand new ASICS Gel-Kinsei Blast is a high-cushioned road racing and speed work shoe that protects your body while allowing it to move freely during your runs.

ASICS designers used their FF BLAST™ PLUS cushioning to give your run a plush and energetic ride. The high energy return from this premium foam is combined with a PEBAX™ propulsion plate layered into the midsole to make this an incredibly fast shoe. The foam gives you a soft landing in the heel while the plate works to redirect your energy forward for an uplifting and snappy takeoff.

A strategically placed rubber outsole over high contact zones improves the durability of the shoe and ASICS’ staple GEL™ technology absorbs the shock of the pavement on long runs and road races to keep you feeling fresh for longer.

The supportive and comfortable locked-in feel you get from the stretchy knit upper will give you the confidence to push the pace and set a new PR in the ASICS Gel-Kinsei Blast.
