The GLIDERIDE™ 2 is scientifically proven to save energy over the long run. By reducing energy through the phases of the gait cycle from footstrike to toe-off, this running shoe can help you cover greater distances. For the 2nd iteration of the design, ASICS wanted to leave the energy-saving properties intact while creating a smoother ride with a better fitting upper. Designed for runners who want to feel fresher for longer durations, this shoe is also a functional choice for recovery runs.

Improving the fit of the upper, this design features an engineered mesh that provides excellent airflow while adjusting to the natural shape of the foot's motion. Paired with a 3D print, this application also creates targeted support without extra stitching or added weight. Additionally, the shoe's upper is made with recycled materials to reduce waste and carbon emissions.

GlideSole Technology Pushes You Across The Finish Line
Designed with improved cushioning for reduced muscle load during take-off and landing, its the GUIDESOLE™ technology underfoot that's the real hero here.

Shaped with a stiff forefoot and dynamically curved sole that increases efficiency by reducing movement of the ankle joint, a lower degree of ankle flexion means other muscles, such as the calf, don’t have to work as hard. Too much ankle movement at speed wastes energy, and so, the shoe’s centre of mass is closer to the heel, making it easier to swing the foot forward.

For you, simply, you'll find yourself running further with less effort, as the shoe naturally propels you forward. And who wouldn't want that?

GEL™ Cushioning Technology & FlyteFoam Midsole
Featuring updated GEL™ technology, the GLIDERIDE improves on predecessors by softening the foam section in the heel for improved comfort and shock absorption. In reducing the pressure on the balls of the heel and cushioning shock impact, you're putting less stress on the muscles, pushing beyond the finish line just that little bit further every time.

This comfort feature is also complemented by the FlyteFoam midsole. By minimising energy lost during take-off, the spring-like material helps lengthen your natural running stride and unlock your full speed potential. You're putting the same effort in for more results: it's an easy win.

Upper Jacquard Mesh & Insole Ortholite Support
Comfort in the sole isn't the GUIDERIDE's only party trick either. Designed with a lightweight mesh upper that allows for better air circulation, the Ortholite sock liner means no more stale smells when the run stops. The eco-friendly material draws moisture away from the shoe and foot, maintaining an ambient temperature and ensuring an overall drier, healthier environment for your foot to inhabit.

Natural Running Guidance & Hard-wearing Durability
Its Trusstic System also helps you follow a more natural running motion. Mirroring the functions of the foot's ligaments, it transforms the foot from a flexible structure into a strong, firm lever to provide forward propulsion. It'll feel like you're pushing off with the full force of your heel and forefoot, rather than dividing the muscle power.

Finished with a highly resistant AHAR™ outsole that reduces wear at key impact areas and reflective decals on the back, this a performance running shoe that really does push you to reach new levels.
