The GEL-PULSE™ 12 running shoe offers excellent cushioning and comfort. In this version, the engineered mesh used in the upper is softer and more breathable.
The fit around the heel and over the top of the foot has been softened for a better feel that helps feet stay comfortable. This not only adds to the shoe's comfort, but also gives the latest GEL-PULSE™ 12 a cleaner look.
Underfoot, the AMPLIFOAM™ midsole cushioning and our rearfoot GEL™ technology cushioning system work in tandem, adding softness and helping the shoe absorb more shock in your step.
With its contemporary technologies and styling, the GEL-PULSE™ 12 shoe helps you to take on whatever the day brings in comfort and style.
