The GEL-KINSEI™ Blast shoes are designed for distance runners seeking a smooth stride. Our focus for this trim level approach was to make this design look as good in the streets as it does on race day. Tonal hues on the jacquard mesh upper are met with advanced breathability for running and everyday scenarios. An arrangement of GEL® technology and FF BLAST™ cushioning create a soft yet responsive step. After easing into the landing phase, the shoe propels you forward with a smooth transition. The midsole's shape is inspired by a samurai's curvaceous katana sword. With a Pebax plate in the center, this feature redirects your movement forward and gives your run a faster feel.
