Enjoy excellent comfort and advanced support with the GEL-KAYANO 27 PLATINUM running shoe. The updates for this franchise focus on creating a softer and smoother riding design with a more efficient toe-off. Part of our PLATINUM collection, this shoe is also accented with polished components throughout the design.
The redesigned mesh upper helps keep feet cool, reduces the shoe's weight, and improves support. Additionally, the external TPU heel counter helps the foot stay more secure while creating a more comfortable foothold.
At midstance, the foot should stop pronating and re-supinate for an efficient toe-off. To help this natural motion, we incorporate DYNAMIC DUOMAX technology to help support the foot and increase stability for runners whose feet roll inward too much (overpronate). The midsole is also layered with a combination of our FLYTEFOAM Propel material and GEL technology cushioning to equip runners with a softer landing and an energized bounce.
SPACE TRUSSTIC technology is placed under the shoe's arch, which provides stability and reduces the overall weight to promote a smoother transition from foot strike to toe-off. Added stability is complemented by deeper forefoot flex grooves that help isolate the initial impact to force a softer feeling at footstrike. Followed by a smoother roll through toe-off, these grooves also allow the shoe to move more naturally with the foot.
Lastly, a large section of reflective materials in the rearfoot help keep runners visible when running in low-light conditions. The GEL-KAYANO 27 PLATINUM model is an excellent choice for both competitive and non-competitive runners looking for an everyday trainer that combines comfort with support.
Foot typeNormal size arches
Push OffThere is even distribution from the front of the foot.
How your foot contacts the groundThe foot lands on outside of the heel, then rolls inward (pronates) to absorb shock and support body weight.
Foot typeLow arches or flat feet
Push OffBig toe and second toe do majority of the work.
How your foot contacts the groundThe foot lands on outside of heel, then rolls inward (pronates) excessively, transferring weight to inner edge instead of ball of the foot.
FLYTEFOAM technology provides exceptional bounce back and responsiveness no matter the distance, utilizing organic super fibers to help reduce packing out that traditionally happens with softer, low density foams.
