Originally designed in conjunction with the ASICS Institute of Sports Science (ISS) in Japan, the METARUN SPS shoe originally debuted as a long distance running style to help runners go farther, while making a breakthrough in technology and comfort. FLYTEFOAM technology in the midsole is 55% lighter than industry standard EVA foams, while the ADAPTTRUSS technology, METACLUTCH technology and X-GEL technology work in unison with each other to promote lightweight stability and energized cushioning. Equipped with the same advanced componentry thatâ€™s made to assist long distance runners, the METARUN SPS shoe is equally suited to stomp the streets with a blend of sportswear and technical design nuances.
Foot typeNormal size arches
Push OffThere is even distribution from the front of the foot.
How your foot contacts the groundThe foot lands on outside of the heel, then rolls inward (pronates) to absorb shock and support body weight.
Foot typeLow arches or flat feet
Push OffBig toe and second toe do majority of the work.
How your foot contacts the groundThe foot lands on outside of heel, then rolls inward (pronates) excessively, transferring weight to inner edge instead of ball of the foot.
FLYTEFOAM technology provides exceptional bounce back and responsiveness no matter the distance, utilizing organic super fibers to help reduce packing out that traditionally happens with softer, low density foams.
GEL Cushioning System
Provides excellent shock absorption
Impact Guidance System (I.G.S.)
ASICS design philosophy that employs linked componentry to enhance the foot's natural gait from heel strike to toe-off.
DUOMAX SUPPORT SYSTEM
A dual-density midsole system positioned to enhance support and stability, positioned sport-specifically.
