Editor’s Notes:

While most are familiar with ASICS’ heritage models, the Japanese sneaker brand has been on the forefront of performance footwear for decades and just unveiled its most technologically-advanced running shoe yet—the METARIDE.

One of the most revolutionary new innovations the brand has launched in seven decades, METARIDE took over two years to develop by a team of designers and scientists at the ASICS Institute of Sport Science (ISS) in Kobe, Japan.

The concept is simple: METARIDE makes running long distances easier by minimizing movement in the area where energy is most expended—the ankles.

Thanks to the shoe’s GUIDESOLE™ cushioning, scientists at ASICS were able to reduce total energy loss at the ankle joint by almost one-fifth, a game-changing difference that could mean besting a personal record.

Look for the ASICS METARIDE available now for $250 USD at ASICS retail stores and online, as well as specialty running stores globally.
