Asics Metarun Running Shoe

The ASICs Corporation is among the most well-known and widely used running shoes on the market. Like every running shoe model they carry on and innovate to keep that market leading standing. Asics already have a number of athletic shoes with diverse versions in order to meet the needs of a wide range of athletes. Each of those designs is regularly modified. Asics recently launched a unique model to the range, the Metarun. Not much was initially known about the footwear, just a teaser online video on the Asics website and a countdown clock ticking down to a unveiling on November 12 2015. Once the clock arrived at zero a tweet was sent by the company to a video that revealed more information and the web page was updated with more on the Metarun. Asics definitely declaring that this is their greatest ever athletic shoe.


The running shoe goes against the recent trends of less gadgets and features in athletic shoes, adding several features that have patents associated with them. The midsole, labeled FlyteFoam, is their lightest and most sturdy midsole material. Asics talk about “organic fibers” for the best level of cushioning. The shoe gets its stability from the patented AdaptTruss which is a carbon strengthened adaptive stability product. The “Sloped DUOMAX” is a dual density midsole which is expected to adjust efficiently to dynamic motion of the athlete. The upper features a glove-like, one-layer Jacquard Mesh and MetaClutch exoskeleton external heel counter with a built-in memory foam. There is also a X-GEL hybrid high-tech gel in the midsole to aid shock absorption.

Is the Metarun their finest athletic shoe ever? Time will tell. Athletes will vote with their feet once they try out the running shoe. There was a bit of hype in social media ahead of the release. The shoes won’t be obtainable until late November plus they are going to be expensive and only obtainable in restricted generate.
