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.




Features and Specs for the Women's Gel Cumulus 13 Running Shoes

Women's Gel Cumulus 13 running shoes are packed with technology that not only cushions your feet against the pounding they can take when running but also innovative features that make them lightweight and sturdy footwear.

There are a number of features on this shoe that are made specifically for women. The Space Trusstic System® allows for the controlled deformation of the shoe's arch to adjust to the periodic changes experienced by women in the shape of their arches. The forefoot gel is designed to a woman's foot.

The material used in the midsole of the Cumulus 13 shoes is lighter than the standard materials Asics normally uses. This lightweight material also enhances the cushioning and durability of the shoes.

Asics special high abrasion rubber is placed in certain areas of the outer sole where it is needed. This creates exceptional durability in the runners. A blown version of this compound is placed in the forefoot. It created durability as well as enhance cushioning.

The sock liner has anti-odor properties that create a drier, cooler, healthy environment. It also contributes to cushioning.Reflective materials on the shoe help increase visibility in low light conditions.

Gel cushioning in the rear and forefoot attenuates the shock when the foot lands and when it pushes off. The components of the shoes work together to enhance your natural gait.

All this combines to make the Asics Gel Cumulus 13 running shoes an exceptional lightweight performance running shoe. They are durable, comfortable, and will protect your feet.



Men's Asics Gel Cumulus 13 Running Shoes

The men's Gel Cumulus 13 running shoes are much the same as the women's version. There are a few gender specific distinctions, but in general the shoes are much the same. If you want a soft smooth run, these shoes will be well suited for you.

The shoes are designed to efficiently enhance your natural gait. They attenuate the shock of running with gel cushioning fore and aft.

Even the American Pediatric Medical Association gives them it's seal of approval.
