I.G.S. (Impact Guidance System)
The Impact Guidance System (I.G.S.) is an ASICS design philosophy. It aims to make shoe components from rear to midfoot and forefoot to work together effectively to allow the body to perform in a natural manner. ASICS designers strive to compliment, not correct, how the legs and feet move.
Rearfoot and Forefoot GEL
Attenuates shock during impact and toe-off phases, and allows movement in multiple planes as the foot transitions through the gait cycle.
Solyte 65 lasting
Employs 65 degree Solyte lasting material for a firmer, more stable platform feel
Solyte Midsole Material
Spongy layer between the sole and upper designed to absorb shock and cushion the foot. Solyte is a lighter material than SpEVA and EVA and features enhanced durability.
Upper material features an abrasion and tear resistant synthetic material which increases upper durability.
P.H.F. (Personalized Heel Fit)
2 layers of memory foam line the collar and mould to the athletes heel, creating a personalized fit.
A sockliner which can be removed to accommodate a medical orthotic.
Anti Gravel Tongue
Special tongue construction that prevents debris entering the shoe.
