Ahar Rubber Sponge Outsole
Acronym for ASICS High Abrasion Rubber. Placed in critical areas of the outsole for exceptional durability.
Our lightest midsole ever. Its organic fibres bounce back into its original shape in the space of each stride to provide perfect cushioning from the start of your run to the finish.
Full Ground Contact
Provides a smooth and stable transition from foot strike to toe off.
Gel – Rearfoot And Forefoot
Attenuates shock during impact and toe-off phases, and allows movement in multiple planes as the foot transitions through the gait cycle.
Longitudinal groove that decouples tooling along the line of progression for enhanced gait efficiency.
3D Space Construction
This technology is implemented through a series of strategically planted pillars within the midsole, allowing runners to experience more compression in a specific area without reducing durability or stability. These pillar formations are tuned differently in the men’s and women’s models to address each gender’s biomechanical data.
Width: D standard – STANDARD
For men the standard shoe width is D, going up to a wide fitting 2E and the widest a 4E. In New Zealand the most common shoe width size for men is a 2E.
