The METARUN™ shoe by ASICS adapts to your individual running style. Its built with advanced technology and comfort for an appropriate running experience. FLYTEFOAM® technology in the midsole delivers a smooth ride from the moment your foot hits the ground to the time you toe off. GEL® technology cushioning in the heel offers soft, durable impact protection. Three different technologies in the METARUN™ shoe work together to stabilize the foot and guide it forward for an efficient toe off. The upper not only wraps the foot like a glove but works with the midsole to complement the soles stability. Soft flexible internal bands lock the midfoot over the sole and run back into the heel where they tie into the METACLUTCH™ technology system, to stabilize the heel for excellent rearfoot hold. The METARUN™ shoe offers excellent stability and comfort. Its adaptive nature and the premium underfoot feel make the METARUN™ shoe a great choice for beginning runners and experienced marathoner alike.
