Asics Women's GlideRide 2
The GLIDERIDE™ 2 shoe is scientifically proven to save energy over the long run. By reducing energy through the phases of the gait cycle from footstrike to toe-off~ this running shoe can help you cover greater distances. This season~ we wanted to leave the energy-saving properties intact while creating a smoother ride with a better fitting upper.
Designed for runners who want to feel fresher for longer durations~ this shoe is also a functional choice for recovery runs. Improving the fit of the upper~ this design features an engineered mesh that provides excellent airflow while adjusting to the natural shape of the foot's motion.
Paired with a 3D print~ this application also creates targeted support without extra stitching or added weight. GUIDESOLE™ technology consists of a curved sole that improves running efficiency by decreasing the load placed on the lower limbs. FLYTEFOAM® technology cushioning is placed on the top layer of the midsole for a soft landing~ while the bottom layer of FLYTEFOAM® Propel technology generates a more responsive bounceback.
Sandwiched between these two layers in the forefoot is a plate that helps keep the integrity of the midsole. Encouraging an easy forward roll~ this motion propels the foot forward to create smoother and more efficient transitions between strides. Additionally~ the AHARPLUS™ outsole improves durability and extends the shoe's lifespan.
