The ASICS GlideRide builds off the brand's most technologically advanced shoe, the MetaRide, while refining its features to deliver the same energy-savings in a package that's more approachable for any runner.
To do this, ASICS made the shoe more comfortable by reducing the curve of the midsole and adding more cushioning underfoot. The GLIDESOLE technology features a rockered midsole and stiff forefoot that creates an efficient transition through the stride by reducing ankle flexion and propelling the runner forward.
In addition, the shoe's center of mass is closer to the heel which helps speed the foot's travel forward during the swing phase. This aids in reducing fatigue on the leg muscles, especially the calves, so the runner can run longer with less effort.
Finished off with a soft engineered mesh upper, the GlideRide features an adaptable fit that works with its plush cushioning to help the shoe to seemingly disappear on the foot while the miles fly by.
