The GEL-KUMO™ LYTE 2 shoe combines a soft and lightweight design with a contemporary look. This style is also functional for the runner who wants to wear it to the gym for light cross-training workouts. The second iteration of this series now features a softer heel construction and improved cushioning. A new stretchy tongue wing will softly wrap your foot and help feet remain centered as you fly through the miles. The updated heel construction is designed to create a more supportive fit with a softer feel while the synthetic mesh upper helps feet breathe better and dry quickly once they start sweating. Following a more sustainable design approach, this shoe also uses fewer resources to color the sockliner. The improved design of the GEL® technology cushioning unit is reinforced with a bottom-loaded construction to help you experience better shock absorption in each stride. Designed for improved durability, thanks to the injection rubber outsole, this component is met with strategically placed flex grooves that make these shoes more flexible and comfortable when wearing throughout the day.
