Asics Gel Cumulus 15 Mens
A cushioned trainer with a super plush platform feel the GEL-Cumulus 15 provides better comfort than ever. New in this edition is the full-length SpEVA lasting delivering extra bounce back. Along with the Visible Rearfoot and Forefoot GEL it absorbs shock when your foot lands to provide a fantastic cushioned ride. It also includes the Full Length Guidance Line a groove along the sole that guides your foot through the gait cycle and helps you run more efficiently even when fatigue sets in. The Discrete Eyestay Construction on the upper improves the overall fit by allowing each eyelet to pull directly from the base of the shoe.

Insole placed inside the shoe which provides cushioning keeping the foot drier and cooler.
I.G.S. (Impact Guidance System)
The Impact Guidance System (I.G.S.) is an ASICS design philosophy. It aims to make shoe components from rear to midfoot and forefoot to work together effectively to allow the body to perform in a natural manner. ASICS designers strive to compliment, not correct, how the legs and feet move.
AHAR (ASICS High Abrasion Resistant rubber)
Tough material placed in critical areas of heavy contact on the shoe for exceptional durability.
A sockliner which can be removed to accommodate a medical orthotic.
Rearfoot and Forefoot GEL
Attenuates shock during impact and toe-off phases, and allows movement in multiple planes as the foot transitions through the gait cycle.
Guidance Line places a visible groove in the mid and outsole that follows the foot's center of pressure from heel to toe. The result is a more adaptive running platform, creating a smoother transition from heel strike to toe-off with each stride. The Guidance Line thus helps runners to maintain a natural, efficient gait, especially over long distances
