Updates to Asics Comutora MX

  • The Asics Comutora MX is a running shoe that’s designed for the neutral pronator. It is part of the FuzeTora family of road companions. It features a street-ready design that may appeal to casual shoe enthusiasts and urban adventurers.
  • A lightweight foam serves as the primary cushioning unit. It works with an Ortholite® sockliner to ensure comfort throughout the running session. A textured external pad offers traction over the surfaces.

Asics Comutora MX size and fit

The MX version of the Asics Comutora was created using the standard measurements. Runners can get a pair with their usual sizing preferences in mind, yet it’s always helpful to try on the shoe first before deciding on a purchase. When it comes to width, the options are D – Medium for men and B – Medium for women.

Outsole

The outsole unit of the Asics Comutora MX is comprised of ground-contact foam. Its job is to provide traction through circular traction nodes that pockmark its surface.

There are tiny spaces and holes on the outsole that are meant to shave off weight and encourage flexibility. These small depressions potentially help the runner when it comes to attaining a smooth and natural performance.

Midsole

The midsole unit of the Asics Comutora MX is made up of a technology called Solyte®, which is a full-length foam that is more lightweight than the industry-standard options. Its job is to keep the foot supported while avoiding early material breakdown.

The platform elevates itself to form semi-prominent walls on the sides and the back. This design helps to steady the foot and prevent it from wobbling inside the interior chamber.

An Ortholite® sockliner is placed right above the main foam unit. This add-on offers additional cushioning for the underfoot. It also has anti-moisture and antimicrobial capacities that maintain a clean and healthy shoe-interior.

Upper

The external section of the Asics Comutora MX makes use of a breathable mesh. This material is designed to be flexible yet comfortable. It has tiny breathing holes that accommodate airflow into the foot-chamber, thus maintaining ventilation.

Printed overlays are placed on the midfoot section of this lightweight running shoe, reinforcing the mesh and the eyelets. These additional layers aren’t thick, and they do not put any substantial weight on the silhouette. They’re meant to bolster the structure of the upper and provide a secure coverage.

The MONO-SOCK® technology involves the removal of the traditional tongue unit and the use of a stretchy internal lining. The job of this feature is to provide a smooth and non-irritating wrap without sacrificing flexibility and breathability.
