Asics Gel Cumulus 18 Running Shoes 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 Gel Cumulus’ upper is constructed using comfortable, supportive and breathable synthetic materials with mesh panels for increased airflow; creating a better, healthier environment for your feet to thrive in. The plush Comfordry Sockliner supplies underfoot comfort and also boasts exceptional moisture wicking qualities; helping to keep your feet cool and dry. The sockliner is removable, so can be washed in-between uses. Reflective elements increase your visibility to passing vehicles, keeping you safe on those late night road runs. Convergence GEL Midsole The Cumulus features a Convergence GEL midsole to provide enhanced shock absorption and a more comfortable ride. The GEL unit in the heel has been moved as a result of Asics’ new research; it has been placed closer to the foot to replicate the natural tissue there, this increases the GEL’s function and shock dissipation. The result is a smoother ride, with reduced stress on the wearer’s joints; so your knees are spared as you pound the pavements. Asics’ Impact Guidance System (I.G.S.) is also incorporated into the Cumulus’ midsole. I.G.S. works by enhancing the foot’s natural gait from heel strike to toe off; coaxing you to run in a neutral stance. Neutral running posture is further encouraged by Guidance Line Midsole Technology, which improves gait efficiency by helping the wearer to run neutrally. The result of these technologies combined is a supportive, but cushioned, ride; helping you to run neutrally whilst minimising the stress on the wearer’s joints.
