Improve your running efficiency: the GlideRide 2 running shoes from Asics
This season, Asics wanted to maintain energy-saving features while providing a smoother stride and improving the fit of the upper. This shoe is designed for runners who want to feel fresh over longer distances, but it is equally suitable for recovery runs.
To further enhance the fit of the upper, a specially engineered mesh was used to provide excellent airflow while conforming to the natural shape of the foot as you run. Together with a 3D print, this element provides targeted support without the need for additional seams or extra weight.
GUIDESOLE™ technology consists of a curved sole that improves running efficiency by reducing the weight placed on the lower limbs. FLYTEFOAM™ cushioning technology in the top layer of the midsole provides soft landings, while FLYTEFOAM™ Propel technology in the bottom layer offers responsive rebound. Nestled between these two layers is a plate in the forefoot that provides midsole stability. By making it easier to roll forward, the foot is supported as it moves forward. This makes for a smoother and more efficient transition from one stride to the next.
