These premium men's athletic shoes have uppers made with breathable four-way stretch mesh and seamless overlay construction. From Asics by Cherokee, this shoe has two trusses for improved structural integrity and midfoot rigidity. These shoes hold the heel more securely and there is less potential for friction. The Kayano has GEL cushioning in both the rearfoot and forefoot. The soles are made with durable high abrasion rubber heels.
