The GEL-KAYANO® Lite shoe embodies a more sustainable design approach that uses less componentry and fewer resources to produce. As its namesake suggests, this trainer is focused on preserving the stability properties of the GEL-KAYANO® series with less weight while lightening the load on the environment. Designed to provide excellent underfoot comfort, the shoe also offers an energetic ride and helps set the foot up for a more efficient toe-off. The upper is formed with recycled materials that are teamed with minimal overlays to target support where it's needed most. Wrapping the foot with a soft and silky feel, this engineered mesh provides a more accommodating fit and breathability to keep cool and comfortable. We created specific deformable shapes on the top of the midsole through the use of our 3D SPACE CONSTRUCTION™ design to slow the rate of pronation and improve the cushioning experience. This midsole technology is also tuned to accommodate the gait differences between male and female runners. Featuring a flared midsole geometry that has a concave shape on the lateral heel and a convex shape on the medial heel, this supportive design mechanism helps generate more compression during the landing phase to increase the resistance when the foot starts rolling inward. Cutouts in the midfoot improve the shoe’s flexibility and create a smoother ride, while the wider base nets in the shoe’s heel and forefoot provide more surface area to create a stable landing and toe-off. The GEL-KAYANO® Lite shoe is helping us take a step toward more sustainable manufacturing without compromising performance.

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-KAYANO LITE is made for Neutral and Overpronation.
