Updates to Asics Endurant

  • The Asics Endurant is a neutral running shoe created for the road. It has a sporty design that’s prevalent in many shoes of its ilk. On its façade is a mesh material that accommodates airflow. Covering the mesh is a set of stitched overlays, which make the coverage feel more secure.
  • A full-length midsole material carries the foot responsibly through the gait cycle. It makes sure to attenuate impact shock during the landing phase of the gait cycle and lift the foot back up with responsive energy. A cushioned insole is added right above the main foam unit.
  • The outsole unit of the Asics Endurant makes use of a rubber compound to protect the rest of the mid-sole from the abrasive nature of the asphalt. Flex grooves and diamond-shaped micro-trenches make this section of the shoe more agreeable to the natural movement of the foot as it goes through the running gait.

Size and fit

The Asics Endurant features standard measurements when it comes to length. It is available in sizes that most runners consider as typical. The available width for both the men and women’s versions is medium. It accommodates the runners who have medium sized feet.


Outsole

A durable rubber compound is used for the outsole unit of the Asics Endurant. It responsibly delivers traction, which is essential for control over the surfaces.

Flex grooves and diamond-shaped mini-trenches ensure the platform’s flexibility. Such a design enables the natural flexion of the foot as it transitions through the gait cycle.


Midsole

A full-length foam unit is used for the mid-sole of the Asics Endurant. It carries the foot responsibly through the gait cycle and protects it from impact during the foot-strike.

A cushioned insole is put right above the main mid-sole foam material. It adds a bit more cushioning for the foot.


Upper

A mesh material with an open construction is utilized for the upper unit of the Asics Endurant. It accommodates air into the foot-chamber, thus giving a cool and dry environment for the foot.

Synthetic leather is stitched onto the upper unit, creating an overlay system that helps in locking the foot in place. It also makes the façade more durable.

The padded tongue and collar provide cushioning to the top section of the foot. They also prevent any accidental shoe-removals.

A protective toe cap shields the forefoot from potentially abrasive surfaces and debris on the roads.
