Ortholite®: Engineered from open cell polyurethane, Ortholite soles retain 95% of their cushioning after one year of use, whereas ordinary soles lose 70% of their cushioning over the same time period.
The Ortholite® sole is light and breathable. The air circulates, to help evacuate heat and moisture to keep the feet dry. The environmentally-friendly biocide treatment is antimicrobial and creates a healthier environment for the feet. The advantages of Ortholite® Open-Cell Technology are:
Adaptive Fit: Optimal Asics upper construction. Different materials, breathable zones, separate lace eyelets, a seamless heel cup and seamless upper. This technology works together for unique comfort and premium support.
Heel Clutch Counter: Heel construction to support your ankle and improve comfort. This innovation replaces the inner heel shell. It wraps around the heel and improves support while preventing skin irritation. This considerably reduces the weight of the shoe without sacrificing stability.
FlyteFoam™: FlyteFoam™ midsole is made of foam with added cellulose microfibres. This midsole beats the record for lightness. This material is 55% lighter than classic EVA foam and 33% lighter than Solyte. Organic fibres provide good shape retention.
FlyteFoam™ Propel: FlyteFoam™ Propel midsole is made from a elastomer with great energy return. This patented formula produces excellent bounce and unbeatable propulsion.
Guidance Trusstic™: Anti-torsion element for increased stability. This technology encourages stability of movement by strengthening the outer part of the midsole on the midfoot and blocking preventing the shoe from twisting. The midsole's integrity is protected by adding a reinforcement to prevent early deformation of this section. It is made of Pebax, HardEVA, BioTPU and injected TPU.
Gel™ Technology: Iconic shock absorption technology used by Asics since 1986. The Gel™ cushioning helps protect shocks from impact to reduce muscle fatigue. Made of wear-resistant silicone, the Gel™ pads are placed under the heel, under the big toe joint and under the toes. These are areas where the vertical load is higher on impact and push-off.
Full Ground Contact: This sole construction covers the whole midfoot arch for full ground contact and a gentle stride.
AHAR Sponge™: Acronym for Asics High Abrasion Rubber. Specific insert on the forefoot outsole. This low density rubber provides traction and energy transmission during the propulsion phase.
AHAR+™: An acronym for Asics High Abrasion Rubber, this material is placed in key areas on the sole for exceptional solidity.
Jacquard Mesh: Jacquard is a textured fabric with woven patterns. Different patterns are designed to improve the fit, support and breathability.
EVA: The moulded EVA foam insert is particularly flexible. It helps improve shock absorption and lightness.
