Features & Benefits

  • Gel Discrete Heel unit is comprised entirely of a silicone-based gel for responsive shock absorption on impact.
  • Forefoot Gel cushioning system uses a silicone based gel that attenuates shock during toe-off.
  • Midsole
  • FluidRide provides responsive cushioning with reduced weight and increased durability.
  • Guidance Line is a vertical flex groove in the forefoot for improved gait efficiency.
  • Propulsion Trusstic System utilizes a thermal plastic unit that connects the lateral heel to the medial forefoot. This unit works to release stored energy and propel you forward during toe-off.
  • Impact Guidance System (IGS) design creates a smooth and balanced heel-to-toe transition.
  • Upper
  • Open mesh on the upper provides breathable coverage.
  • FluidFit consists of multi-directional stretch mesh that provides a personalized, glove-like fit.
  • Seamless Upper Construction allows for irritation-free sockless wear.
  • Heel Clutching System uses an exoskeletal structure that wraps the heel for a secure fit.
  • ComforDry Sockliner is made with anti-bacterial material to reduce odor and moisture and provide additional cushioning.
  • Strobel Last with the upper stitched to Solyte 55 Foam, for enhanced cushioning and a moderately soft underfoot feel.
  • Personal Heel Fit (PHF) uses a two layer memory foam lining in the heel collar to provide a individualized fit.
  • Outsole
  • Asics High Abrasion Rubber (AHAR) in the heel is made of carbon rubber for exceptional durability.
    • Poor quality materials

      My husband purchased these shoes in June 2015 for indoor running at the gym. He has only ever worn them indoors, and has taken immaculate care of them, but now, 6 months later, the toe of the left shoe already has a hole in it, like the gauzy fabric just gave way. He tried to return or exchange at Running Room and was told there was nothing that could be done. Disappointing for such an expensive pair of shoes!
