Drawing its inspiration from cumulus clouds, this neutral running shoe’s upper and midsole has been given a more holistic design approach that adapts to the runner’s anatomy in motion. Wrapping the foot with an even softer feel the engineered mesh upper adds strategic support in targeted areas while leaving some of the fibers more open to improve breathability. By helping runners appropriately compress the foam during the landing phase of their stride this shoe promotes a smoother ride and improves shock absorption. A softer GEL® technology unit is positioned under the heel to improve cushioning while the FLYTEFOAM® midsole material helps create a smoother and more supportive ride. Formed with a sustainable compound in the outsole the ASICS LITE Rubber is soft and designed to improve durability in high-impact areas.
