Engineered Mesh Upper

Optimising breathability and keeping the shoes lightweight, the GEL-KAYANO™ 31 has an improved, engineered mesh upper using 50% recycled polyester. These lightweight materials supply feet with a constant supply of fresh air, allowing them to remain cool and feel fresh throughout your running sessions.

This updated upper has a modernised knit collar construction with luxurious step-in comfort and a comfortable experience. The collar design sits comfortably against your foot to prevent irritation or chafing from occurring, as well as, ensures the shoes remain secure. This has been paired with an advanced pull tab for easy on-and-off access. The shoes have a traditional lace-up system, which keeps feet locked in and prevents in-shoe slipping from occurring.


FF Blast Plus Eco Midsole

Using one of ASICS' lightest and most energetic foam compounds, the GEL-KAYANO™ 31 utilises an FF Blast Plus Eco. With cloud-like softness and 24% bio content, this midsole has outstanding softness to contribute to cushioned strides and a comfortable running experience. Its reinforced, organic fibres let the material bounce back to its original shape after every run, so you can train harder, more frequently, for longer without the worry your shoes might not be able to take it.

Working alongside this, the shoes have PureGEL technology in the rearfoot, which is lighter in weight and approximately 65% softer than conventional ASICS' GEL technology. This helps to deliver enhanced shock absorption and promotes smooth transition, to reduce injuries and keep you comfortable, stride after stride.

The GEL-KAYANO™ 31 uses ASICS' 4D Guidance System, which guides your foot through every step with adaptive on-demand stability. Instead of bracing your feet to restrict movement, the system works with your movements, providing you with stability when and where it's needed most. In addition to its other features, the shoes incorporate four dimensions of stability. These are; a wider platform for enhanced stability, length due to the full-length lateral midsole groove, depth that allows your foot to be cradled on the platform, and time due to the soft and bouncy medial piece. All these dimensions work together to ensure that your foot spends less time in overpronation.


Hybrid ASICSGRIP Outsole

Using a combination of ASICS' ASICSGRIP and AHARPLUS materials in the right places, the outsoles of the GEL-KAYANO™ 31 provide you with an excellent grip underfoot. ASICS' High Abrasion Rubber is a tough rubber compound used in heavy-contact or high-wear areas, helping to protect you from losing control and slipping. This excellent compound provides you with grip and traction on a variety of surfaces and has been designed with strategically placed lugs, to enhance the grip further.
