Choose Asics Gel Cumulus for the Cushioning

Asics Gel Cumulus running shoes are noted for their cushioning. Asics makes running shoes for various types of runners. While other styles may emphasize being light weight or offering maximum support, the Cumulus running shoes emphasize cushioning.

Asics Gel Cumulus 13 is the latest iteration of this series. These shoes attenuate the shock associated with running with gel cushions in both the forefoot as well as the rear foot area. This cushioning is even gender specific in the front of the shoes.

These shoes are great for anyone from an under pronator to a mild over pronator. They are designed to enhance and make more efficient your natural gait as you run.

For women, the arch is deformed to adjust for the normal changes that occur periodically in the shape of your arches.
