A little from the Culture Team...
This is a staff favourite for tempo runs and high effort workouts. That being said, it can still handle higher mileage runs for people who are lighter on their feet (or aren't looking for an ultra-plush ride). The supportive heelcounter, GUIDESOLE rocker and springy FLYTEFOAM propel makes for a crazy-smooth ride with super fast turnover. Plus it also just makes it SO much fun to run in. This shoe is one that we keep going back to again and again.
The EVORIDE™ Tokyo shoe is a neutral running style that's built on the METARIDE™ shoe philosophy, which aims to reduce the overall load on the foot with a curved sole design and a stiff forefoot. These properties help to increase running efficiency by reducing ankle movement—helping runners feel fresher for longer. Featuring an engineered Jacquard mesh upper construction, this technology promotes multi-directional stretch properties—offering an excellent fit that adjusts to the foot's natural shape. This shoe incorporates FLYTEFOAM® Propel technology in the midsole to help generate responsive propulsion, making it an excellent choice for longer duration tempo runs. Functional for reducing shock from impact, the curved sole is also practical for assisting runners' feet in rolling forward, especially at faster paces.
FLYTEFOAM® PROPEL TECHNOLOGY
ASICS energetic foam formulation that provides supreme bounce thanks to a unique elastomer compound.
REARFOOT GEL TECHNOLOGY
ASICS high abrasion resistant (AHAR) rubber on the outsole that is softer and lighter to deliver a plush ride, flexibility and overall comfort.
FULL CONTACT BOTTOM
A smoother transition from heel strike to toe-off.
ROLLING MOTION LAST
Similar to the experience of the GlideRide, the GUIDESOLE curvature of the Evoride encourages a rolling motion from foot strike to toe-off.
