Asics Gel-Glorify 2 Running Shoes
The lightweight and comfortable Asics Gel-Glorify 2 cushions your foot each step of the way. Your foot bounds off the ground thanks to the bouncy FluidRide midsole. Your full power goes into each push-off thanks to the flexible sole. The shoe is extremely comfortable to wear with a snug upper made with stretchy mesh to provide breathability and ventilation.
Breathable Mesh Upper
Mesh uppers will encase each foot in breathable comfort. Perforates in the fabric increase airflow; creating a better, healthier environment for your feet to thrive in. Synthetic overlays swathe the midfoot and heel to surround you in structured support, while an external heel counter works to anchor your foot to the midsole; reducing in-shoe slippage for a smooth, distraction-free ride. Reflective details complete the Gel-Glorify 2’s upper, increasing your visibility to passing vehicles and keeping you safe on those late night road runs. An Anti-Microbial ComforDry sockliner fights odours to keep your shoes smelling fresher, for longer.
FluidRide technology, a two-layered midsole construction, features for a winning combination of cushioning and bounce-back. The luxurious SpEVA and Solyte material fusion result in comfort, durability and lightweight; cushioning the foot and supplying energy packed bounce; reducing the use of superfluous muscle power and therefore diminishing fatigue, keeping you driven for longer. Sitting beneath the FluidRide platform, and complimenting its bouncy nature, 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 hard, unforgiving concrete. Research has shown the majority of runners heel-strike, so the Convergence GEL is positioned closer to the heel’s spherical shape for improved cushioning and shock dispersion. Its adaptive nature means this compound creates a smooth transition from heel contact to the Guidance Line, enabling the foot to transition from impact to toe-off with the least amount of resistance. This reduces muscle fatigue, and with a minimal trusstic, there is the right level of torsional support to guide the foot to toe-off, should fatigue set in. So the GEL helps to attenuate shock while the FluidRide improves comfort and reduces energy loss; harnessing kinetic energy to supply that all-important spring in your step. Asics’ Impact Guidance System (I.G.S.) is also incorporated into the midsole. I.G.S. works by enhancing the foot’s natural gait from heel strike to toe-off; coaxing you to run in a neutral stance. Neutral running posture is further encouraged by Guidance Line Midsole Technology, which uses a vertical flex groove to decouple the tooling along the line of progression; enhancing gait efficiency. The result of these technologies combined produces a supportive, but cushioned, ride; helping the wearer to run neutrally whilst minimising the stress on their joints.
AHAR Rubber Outsole
The Trusstic System has been implemented to reduce the weight of the sole unit and link the forefoot and rearfoot; working alongside the guidance line to encourage a more consistent and directional gait. AHAR (Asics High Abrasion Rubber) is strategically placed on the outsole to provide extra durability and traction in high-stress areas. The closely spaced tread provides superior multi-directional grip; allowing stability on wet and dry ground.
