Few running shoe models have stood the test of time like the ASICS Gel Cumulus series. Its Gel technology and durable construction have helped the Cumulus become a go-to shoe for beginners and elite runners alike. With the ASICS Gel Cumulus 19, the shoe maintains what runners love along with some small tweaks.
A noticeable difference from the Cumulus 18 is the removal of several overlays on the upper, specifically on the heel and medial side of the shoe. The padded heel collar is also gone, leaving the shoe with a more seamless design and a new look. As a result of the removed overlays and new heel collar, we expect the Cumulus 19 to be lighter weight than its predecessor.
To maintain the smooth ride and cushioned underfoot from previous models, the shoe will feature identical midsole and outsole tooling to the Cumulus 18. The shoe will continue to pack GEL technology in the heel and forefoot alongside a FluidRide midsole. This combination of technologies should provide a soft instep feel with enough cushion for your long daily runs. Outsole construction continues to feature High Abrasion Rubber pads for exceptional durability.
