Comfort, grip, and lightweight – it’s the perfect combination for a 21st-century runner sneaker. We see similar traits in the DNA of the ASICS METARACER too.
The Japanese have been ahead of the game when it comes to sprint-wear, pushing the boundaries of performance and promising style with every stride. Newest on the block is the ASICS METARACER™, built for runners to reach peak performance. But what gives this ASICS running an edge is its GuideSole™ technology and the carbon plates underneath. While promising grip, it also gives runners greater forward propulsion, an incredible incentive for long-range sprints. More so, ASICS scientists claim that the shoe has been designed with an athlete’s well-being in mind.
Upon close inspection, you’ll notice that the ASICS METARACER’s toe cop is designed to be longer than contemporary runners, this reduces the load on the runner’s calf muscles by nearly 20 per cent, allowing longer sprints. However, with all this intensity, the METARACER keeps breathability and lightness in check too. The engineered mesh upper keeps our feet aired even in extreme climates.
While the GuideSole™ tech assists with performance, the FlyteFoam™ tech is what makes this running experience lighter and softer with every stride. The new runner boasts a Sunrise Red colourway, which stands as a symbol of athletes’ hope, passion, and celebrates the city of Tokyo. Its vibrancy is decorated with a solid black ASICS logo to the side.
The ASICS METARACER Tokyo is currently retailing at the brand’s online store and select outlets. Available in men’s as well as women’s designs, the new runner is priced at Rs 17,999.
