The GLIDERIDE 3 shoe is designed to help you conserve more energy, so you can log more miles during your distance training. A key focus for this design was to make this trainer smoother and more comfortable.
Softer and more breathable, this shoe features a redesigned engineered mesh upper. This material comfortably wraps your foot and increases airflow to keep your feet cool.
We added FF BLAST+ cushioning to the midsole to create a softer touchdown at footstrike. It keeps the shoe lightweight while adding a more responsive rebound at toe-off.
GUIDESOLE technology reduces ankle flexion and lightens the load placed on your foot. Along with its curved sole design, this shoe helps you roll through your training with less effort.

AHAR PLUS OUTSOLE
Strategically positioned in critical areas of the outsole, this exceptionally durable compound is 50% more durable than standard ASICS High Abrasion Rubber.
The curved sole design and stiff forefoot of our GUIDESOLE technology reduce ankle flexion and provide a shock-absorbent landing zone to lessen fatigue of other leg muscles and increase runner efficiency.
Lightweight, midsole foam with energetic and highly responsive cushioning and bounce for an efficient ride.
The Flytefoam Propel midsole material is made with high energy return elastomer added to the foam. This patented formulation is extremely resilient, comfortable and lightweight compared with other foams in the market. It also produces an enhanced bounce and push-off.
