Asics: Go The Distance
Frequent runners should consider adding Asics’ latest GlideRide running shoes to their collections. The design features a combination of the brand’s best technologies, including the Rearfoot Gel Technology Cushioning System, Flytefoam Midsole Technology and Glidesole Technology. Together, they provide effective cushioning, bounce-back and stability to make your sessions comfortable and injury-free. Former athlete Liz McColgan, who tested the shoe, claimed that the GlideRide’s curved sole “carried her forward when energy levels were low and provided the momentum to keep going”.
