Designed in conjunction with the ASICS Institute of Sports Science (ISS in Japan, the METARUN™ shoe originally debuted as a long-distance running style to help runners go further, while making a breakthrough in technology and comfort.
FLYTEFOAM™ technology in the midsole is approx. 55% lighter than industry standard E.V.A 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 advanced componentry that’s made to assist your distance training, the METARUN™ shoe also offers an adaptable design that's equally suited for experienced marathoners as it is for beginners.
