The ASICS METARIDE Reduces Energy Loss at the Ankle Joint

Passionate runners know the importance of investing in a good running shoe for comfort, shock absorption and increased stability, and the ASICS METARIDE is a new footwear design that is said to make it easier to run long distances. This key selling feature of the sneaker can be attributed to its integrated GUIDESOLE technology, which helps to reduce the amount of energy that is lost at the ankle joint. Specifically, the sneaker has a precision-shaped curved sole that shifts the body weight forward and helps to propel runners forward for a sense of "effortless motion."

The energy-saving shoe was created over the course of two years between scientists and designers at ASICS' Institute of Sport Science in Kobe, Japan. ASICS METARIDE has been tested against conventional running shoes and has been proven to introduce what feels like a new running experience.
