Get a running shoe that packs in huge amounts of support and cushioning. The FOUNDATION backs you up over long distances, whether you land on the ground with force or you bring your weight down on your arch. It's ASICS' most supportive shoe yet.
Mesh uppers will encase each foot in breathable comfort. Perforates in the fabric increase airflow; promoting a better, healthier environment for your feet to thrive in. A ComforDry sockliner lies atop a supportive midsole, implemented to supply an extra layer of plush and hygienic underfoot comfort. This premium product features higher rebound properties but also provides excellent moisture-management and a high level of breathability; so you stay damp-free and comfortable on hot, longer distance days. Reflective elements complete the upper, increasing your visibility to passing vehicles and keeping you safe on those late night adventures.
In the midsole, the Dynamic DuoMax Support System (a dual density midsole material) works to stabilise the foot during the push-off and landing phase, controlling pronation and preventing injury. A length of SpevaFoam resides underfoot to improve bounce-back characteristics and decrease midsole breakdown; the added cushion produces a soft feel and improved comfort for an even, distraction-free ride. SpEVA Lasting 55 features for an extra dollop of enhanced stability, cushion and comfort. This lasting technology improves the stiffness of the shoe, boosting the spring rate to help reduce the use of superfluous muscle power; keeping you motivated for longer. Embedded in the luxurious midsole compound, are the rearfoot and forefoot GEL Cushioning Systems. These work to reduce shock during the impact phase; sparing your joints as you sprint down onto unforgiving concrete, and allowing for a smooth transition to mid-stance.
The Trusstic System has been implemented to reduce the weight of the sole unit and link the forefoot and rearfoot. It works alongside the Guidance Line to encourage a more consistent and directional gait, without compromising the shoe's structural integrity. A solid rubber outsole completes the Foundation 12. Strategically adorned with AHAR+ (Asics High Abrasion Rubber), it provides extra durability and traction in high stress areas. The tread provides superior multi-directional grip; allowing stability on wet and dry ground. Flex grooves complete the shoe; promoting natural movement in the foot and contributing towards every smooth, uninterrupted stride. Shave seconds from your times with this new, lighter FOUNDATION.
