The ASICs Corporation is probably the most well-known and widely used athletic shoes available. Like any running shoe brand they always innovate to keep that market top position. Asics already have a wide range of athletic shoes with various models to try and meet the needs of a wide range of runners. Each of those designs is often modified. Asics recently created a different model to the range, the Metarun. Not much was at first known about the shoe, only a teaser video on the Asics site and a countdown clock running down to a launch on November 12 2015. When the clock reached zero a tweet was dispatched by Asics to a video that unveiled more information and the website was refreshed with more on the Metarun. They're certainly claiming that this is their best ever athletic shoe.

The Metarun goes against the current trends of fewer gadgets and features in running shoes, adding several designs which have patents attached to them. The midsole, termed FlyteFoam, is their lightest and most durable midsole material. They discuss “organic fibers” for the best level of shock absorption. The shoe gets its stability from the patented AdaptTruss that is a carbon strengthened adaptive stability product. The “Sloped DUOMAX” is a dual density midsole that is meant to adapt efficiently to dynamic motion of the runner. The upper features a glove-like, one-layer Jacquard Mesh as well as MetaClutch exoskeleton external heel counter with a built-in memory foam. There is also a X-GEL hybrid high-tech gel in the midsole to aid cushioning.

Is it their finest running shoe ever? Time will tell. Athletes will vote with their feet once they test the Metarun. There was a bit of hype in social media ahead of the unveiling. These shoes will not be obtainable until late November and they are going to be high priced and only available in limited release.
