Introducing the new GEL-KINSEI™ Blast shoe, offering plush comfort for your run and energy return for your day.
Inspired by the GEL-KINSEI™ iterations from the mid-2000s, the smart and stylish GEL-KINSEI™ Blast unites Japanese craftsmanship with a modern design, for runners who seek top-level running technology when it comes to uplifting their mind.
The GEL-KINSEI™ Blast features a PEBAX™ propulsion plate with FF BLAST™ PLUS cushioning in its midsole, combining to redirect the runner’s energy forward to create a faster feel, while enabling a smooth and cushioned landing every step of the way along your uplift journey.
Other key features of the shoe include the use of shock absorbent GEL™ technology cushioning to deliver confidence throughout your run, and an engineered knit upper taking inspiration from a samurai’s armour, renowned for protecting the body while allowing it to move freely. This helps provide excellent comfort and support, working with the eyelet system to stretch with the midfoot to create a more locked-in feel. Similarly, the GEL-KINSEI™ Blast also features visual influences from the history of Japan – with detailing in the midsole mirroring a samurai’s curvaceous katana sword.
