ASICS GEL-CUMULUS® 18 Eighteen years in the making, the legacy of ASICS' hallowed GEL-Cumulus® 18 shoe now features Convergence GEL® Technology. For improved comfort and an unprecedented ride, Asics' rearfoot GEL® Cushioning Technology is placed closer to the foot to replicate the comfort of your foot's natural tissue, increasing function and shock dissipation. Synthetic/Mesh Upper The new GEL-CUMULUS' upper is constructed using comfortable, supportive and breathable synthetic materials with mesh panels for increased airflow, which helps to keep the feet cool and dry, and creates a more pleasant environment for the wearer. The plush ComfordryTM Sockliner provides extra cushioning, and also boasts exceptional moisture wicking qualities, which helps to leave your feet cool and dry, and your shoes at their lightest weight. The sockliner is removable, and as such can easily be washed between uses. The addition of reflective elements help to improve safety when out training in low-light conditions. As such, not only will these shoes take care of your gait, but also your safety. Convergence GEL® Midsole The new CUMULUS features an updated Convergence GEL® midsole, which provides enhanced shock absorption to make for a more comfortable ride. The GEL® unit in the heel has also been moved as a result of Asics' new research. The GEL® unit is now placed closer to the foot to replicate your foot's natural tissue, which increases the GEL's function and shock dissipation. The result is a smoother ride, with reduced stress on the wearer's joints. Asics' Impact Guidance System (I.G.S.®) is also incorporated into the CUMULUS' midsole. I.G.S.® helps the wearer to run more smoothly by enhancing the foot's natural gait from heel strike to toe off, thereby helping you to run in a neutral stance. Neutral running posture is further enforced by Guidance Line® Midsole Technology, which improves your gait efficiency by helping the wearer to run neutrally. The result of these tech
