Introducing the new GEL-KINSEI™ Blast shoe, offering plush comfort for your run and energy return for your day.
Inspired by the GEL-KINSEI™ iterations from the mid-2000s, the smart and stylish GEL-KINSEI™ Blast unites Japanese craftsmanship with a modern design, for runners who seek top-level running technology when it comes to uplifting their mind.
The GEL-KINSEI™ Blast features a PEBAX™ propulsion plate with FF BLAST™ PLUS cushioning in its midsole, combining to redirect the runner’s energy forward to create a faster feel, while enabling a smooth and cushioned landing every step of the way along your uplift journey.
Other key features of the shoe include the use of shock absorbent GEL™ technology cushioning to deliver confidence throughout your run, and an engineered knit upper taking inspiration from a samurai’s armor, renowned for protecting the body while allowing it to move freely. This helps provide excellent comfort and support, working with the eyelet system to stretch with the midfoot to create a more locked-in feel. Similarly, the GEL-KINSEI™ Blast also features visual influences from the history of Japan – with detailing in the midsole mirroring a samurai’s curvaceous katana sword.
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-KINSEI™ Blast is made for Neutral.
Normal size arches
There is even distribution from the front of the foot.
HOW YOUR FOOT CONTACTS THE GROUND
The foot lands on outside of the heel, then rolls inward (pronates) to absorb shock and support body weight.
