[2 APRIL 2021 - KOBE, JAPAN]- Today, ASICS unveils the GEL-CUMULUS™ 23 - the latest update in the iconic GEL-CUMULUS™ shoe series.
A go-to shoe among runners for its versatility, comfort and eye-catching design, ASICS has taken GEL-CUMULUS™ to the next level by creating an even smoother and more cushioned ride. This improved comfort allows runners to focus simply on enjoying their run, enabling them to achieve a Sound Mind in a Sound Body at a time when it has never been so important.
ASICS has designed the GEL-CUMULUS™ 23 using GEL™ technology combined with a thicker layer of very light FLYTEFOAM™ midsole that gives cushioning and comfort while keeping the shoe responsive and light in weight. The addition of a seamless mesh upper means the shoe wraps the foot like a second skin, giving an extra layer of comfort for the wearer.
ASICS has also harnessed its 3D SPACE CONSTRUCTION™ technology to improve the shoe, a technology that provides added comfort and support in specific areas underfoot depending on the runner's gender. This means the GEL-CUMULUS™ 23 is optimized for the running styles of both men and women.
Shuhei Takemura, Manager, Performance Running Development Team, Footwear at ASICS said: 'Offering a smooth ride to keep on running for longer. GEL-CUMULUS™ 23 is the latest shoe from that ASICS to help everyone achieve a Sound Mind in a Sound Body through sport. Providing cushioning and comfort while remaining responsive and light in weight, it is the perfect everyday trainer for athletes of all levels to get involved with our 2021 challenge to move your mind at sunrise and experience the uplifting power of sport.'
