The GEL-CUMULUS™ 23 shoe’s focus is to provide an even smoother and softer ride while implementing gender tailored technology in the men’s and women’s models. Continuing to draw inspiration from cumulus clouds, we reimagined this neutral running shoe’s upper and midsole formation by applying a more holistic design approach that adapts to the runner’s anatomy in motion. Wrapping the foot with an even softer feel, the engineered mesh upper adds strategic support in targeted areas while leaving some of the fibers more open to improve breathability. The upper also works more closely with the midsole’s movement, which creates a smoother stride from footstrike to toe-off. To improve cushioning and flexibility, we added a 3D SPACE CONSTRUCTION to the top layer of the midsole. This technology is implemented through a series of strategically planted pillars within the midsole, allowing runners to experience more compression in a specific area without reducing durability or stability. These pillar formations are tuned differently in the men’s and women’s models to address each gender’s biomechanical data. By helping runners appropriately compress the foam during the landing phase of their stride, this shoe promotes a smoother ride and improves shock absorption. A softer GEL™ technology unit is positioned under the heel to improve cushioning while the FLYTEFOAM™ midsole material helps create a smoother and more supportive ride. Formed with a sustainable compound in the outsole, the ASICS LITE Rubber is soft and designed to improve durability in high-impact areas.

Pronation is part of the natural movement of the human body and refers to the way your foot rolls inward for impact distribution upon landing. Understanding your pronation type can help you find a comfortable running shoe. The GEL-CUMULUS 22 is made for Underpronation and Neutral.
3D PRINT UPPER – Increases forefoot support and comfort.
FLYTEFOAM® PROPEL TECHNOLOGY – ASICS energetic foam formulation that provides supreme bounce thanks to a unique elastomer compound.
REARFOOT AND FOREFOOT GEL® TECHNOLOGY CUSHIONING SYSTEM – Attenuates shock during impact and toe-off phases, and allows movement in multiple planes as the foot transitions through the gait cycle.
AHAR® OUTSOLE – Acronym for ASICS High Abrasion Rubber. Placed in critical areas of the outsole for exceptional durability.
FLYTEFOAM® MIDSOLE TECHNOLOGY – Our FlyteFoam® technology provides exceptional bounce back and responsiveness no matter the distance, utilizing organic super fibers to help reduce packing out that traditionally happens with softer, low density foams.
GUIDANCE LINE® MIDSOLE TECHNOLOGY – Vertical flex groove decouples the tooling along the line of progression for enhanced gait efficiency.
ORTHOLITE® X-40 SOCKLINER – This premium sockliner features higher rebound properties while providing excellent moisture management and a high-level of breathability (Ortholite is a registered trademark of ATP Manufacturing LLC.)
AGAR SPONGE – ASICS high abrasion resistant (AHAR) rubber on the outsole that is softer and lighter to deliver a plush ride, flexibility and overall comfort.
REFLECTIVITY – Special reflective material designed to enhance safety and visibility in low light conditions
