ASICS Footwear - Sole Technologies
  ASICS Footwear - Upper Technologies

GEL (FOREFOOT & REARFOOT)
The ASICS GEL system is based on a special kind of silicone that enables optimal shock absorption. Gel units are strategically placed in the midsole and designed to enable specific functions and positions.

DUOSOLE
Outsole construction that offers lightweight flexibility and traction.

DUOMAX
A proprietary ASICS system that consists of two different density midsole materials and designed to provide smooth overpronation control.

DUOTRUSS
For improved arch support and torsional stability, this dual-density system is softer on the lateral side and firmer on the medial side.

DURASPONGE
A blown AHAR rubber outsole material with high abrasion-resistant qualities for added durability, combined with a comfortable, cushioned ride.

DYNAMIC CRADLE
A moulded midsole component engineered for specific foot types to enhance guidance and fit.

TRANSITION SOLE
Triple density midsole to enhance guidance and cut back motion.

TRUSSTIC
A moulded component under the mid-foot area. Provides stability and, in combination with the contoured midsole, helps to control torsion.

WET GRIP RUBBER
An outsole made from a special blend of components designed to enhance traction even on a wet surface.

TRAIL SENSOR SYSTEM
This interactive decoupling system makes sure that in every position during trail running there is surface contact.

SPEVA
A supreme midsole material that improves bounce-back characteristics and decreases midsole breakdown.

SPEVA LASTED
The supreme ASICS midsole material used as lasting technology enhances comfort by improved cushioning and/or stability through the use of different densities.

SPACE TRUSSTIC
An advanced system that creates a pocket between the Trusstic system and the midsole, allowing for greater midsole deformation and more efficient foot function.

SOLYTE
Proprietary cushioning material that provides an exceptionally lightweight midsole with excellent bounce-back and durability.

ROCK PROTECTION PLATE
Protects the foot against sharp objects such as rocks and branches.

PROPULSION TRUSSTIC SYSTEM
The ASICS Propulsion Trusstic System mirrors the functions of the ligaments in the foot. It helps the foot transform from a flexible structure, for shock absorption through heel strike and mid-stance, into a powerful, rigid lever needed for forward propulsion.

PROPULSION PLATE
The propulsion plate is a special hardened unit that has been placed in the forefoot for a more efficient propulsion phase.

FLEX GROOVES
These are located in the forefoot and/or rearfoot for increased flexibility and cushioning.

DISCRETE SOLE (REARFOOT)
Unique sole construction that provides supreme load distribution, cushioning and guidance.

DISCRETE SOLE (FOREFOOT)
Unique sole construction that provides supreme load distribution, cushioning and guidance.

COMFORDRY SOCKLINER
This insole provides the optimum cushioning performance system that creates a cooler, drier, healthier shoe environment.

ASYMMETRIC HEEL
A slightly angled and asymmetric heel that offers smoother transition from impact to toe-off. It also reduces the risk of overpronation.

AHAR
ASICS High Abrasion Resistance rubber is a tough rubber compound used at the heavy contact areas of the outsole. Helps to reduce excessive wear.

AHAR+
This is a thinner and lighter version of ASICS High Abrasion Resistance rubber. It is placed on heavy contact areas of the outsole to reduce excessive wear.

10MM HIGH HEEL
This 10 mm difference in height between heel and forefoot offers the best biomechanical position. This protects and enhances forward motion, and reduces load on the achilles tendons, calf muscles, ham string and back.

I.G.S.
The ASICS Impact Guidance System or I.G.S. is a technical shoe design philosophy that allows the athlete's foot to perform in a more natural manner. ASICS high-tech I.G.S. shoes are constructed in a way that enhances natural gait.

PERSONAL HEEL FIT
A special foam heel construction that guarantees a perfect fit around the wearer's heel.

NANOTECHNOLOGY
This treatment on nano scale gives the fabric a water resistant finish without affecting the fabric's properties.

ASYMMETRICAL LACING SYSTEM
A lacing system that follows the curve on top of the foot in a natural way, to ensure a perfect fit and less friction.

BIOMORPHIC FIT

The Biomorphic technology is incorporated into the upper where the areas of highest deformation are found. This ensures a better fit, improved comfort, less risk of injury and enhanced performance.

WING CONSTRUCTION
The GEL-KINSEI 2 features a unique wing construction over the medial and lateral heel counter designed to improve side-to-side stability and maintain foot position within the shoe.

RHYNOSKIN
A moulded midsole component engineered for specific foot types to enhance guidance and fit.

LACE POCKET
This is a feature especially designed for Nordic Walking, which will prevent your poles from becoming caught up in the shoe-laces.

INNER LOCK LACING
This lacing system provides trail walkers/runners with ankle support and stability. Enhanced support -and protection from movement inside the shoe- is provided by two straps. By lacing the shoe, the two straps wrap around the foot and provide a secured fit and support.

ANTI GRAVEL TONGUE
A special tongue construction that prevents clay entering the shoe.

3M SCOTCHLITE
A special reflective material that enhances visibility when light is poor.
