SRIXON/ASICS PRESENTS THE GEL-KAYANO ACE – The Golf Wire

HUNTINGTON BEACH, Calif.—SRIXON®/ASICS® is proud to announce a new golf shoe model in partnership with ASICS North America – the GEL-KAYANOMT AS.

The basis of ASICS golf shoes is comfort. They are designed taking inspiration from the legendary ASICS running shoes which are known to offer exceptional comfort and flexibility. ASICS golf shoes are designed to work with your golf swing to improve your stability with every shot.

“Our partnership with ASICS, one of the world’s leading performance athletic footwear brands, has been a tremendous benefit to both of our brands,” said Mike Powell, President of Sales and Marketing, Srixon/ASICS. “By introducing the GEL-KAYANOMT ACE, we are excited to bring legendary KAYANO comfort and performance to golfers on the golf course.

The GEL-KAYANOMT ACE offers a waterproof, spikeless golf shoe with added comfort. The TPU Heel Cradle provides increased traction while walking the course and throughout your golf swing, while working in conjunction with ASICS Gel technology to increase shock absorption.

Meanwhile, the GEL-KAYANOMT ACE features a flexible, waterproof mesh lining to keep your feet dry in the wettest conditions, while FlyteFoam technology ensures a lightweight golf shoe that can withstand round after round.
