The ASICS GEL-CUMULUS 16 GTX Women's Running Shoe is engineered with an Impact Guidance System (I.G.S) which helps to give the wearer a more natural gait. The Guidance Trusstic System helps to enhance gait efficiency while providing quality midfoot structural integrity. The ComforDryTM Sockliner provides the wearer with consistent cushioning throughout as well as employing anti-microbial properties to help encourage a cool, fresh, healthy internal environment. The Sockliner is also removable and can be replaced with a medical orthotic. California Slip Lasting is used to improve stability throughout the shoe by stitching the upper around the EVA board and directly attaching it to the midsole. The rearfoot and forefoot is enhanced with Gel Cushioning, which helps to attenuate the shock during impact and toe-off phases and also allows movement in multiple planes as the foot transitions through the gait cycle. FluidRide helps to increase the level of energy return while running and also maximises the shoe's cushioning ability while still remaining lightweight. The eyelets are independently placed to disperse lace tension as well as allowing the wearer to customise the fit to create a more comfortable and supportive lockdown. The GORE-TEX® upper is waterproof and breathable, designed ultimately to protect the foot from extreme weather conditions. AHAR+ rubber is used on the outsole to increase the level of cushioning and durability as well as improving the ride. 3M reflective material helps to keep the wearer visible in low-light conditions. Guidance Line technology is created through decoupling vertical flex grooves to enhance gait efficiency.
