Updates to Asics FuzeTora Twist

  • The Asics FuzeTora Twist is an affordable running shoe that’s designed for neutral pronators. It has an underfoot platform that can cater to the stability needs of underpronators. A full-length foam offers standard cushioning; however, it has elevated portions that act as foot-steadying walls. A Gel® shock-attenuating unit is placed in the heel for additional support.
  • Seamless construction is employed to the upper unit. The smoothness of the design prevents skin irritation while ensuring flexibility and breathability. Moreover, the internal sleeve has been configured to wrap around the foot like a sock.

Size and fit

The Asics FuzeTora Twist is true to size. Runners can get a pair with their usual sizing preferences in mind. When it comes to width, the available options are D – Medium for men and B – Medium for women. The semi-curved shape of this running shoe and its form-fitting top work together to welcome the natural curve of the human foot.


Ground-contact ethylene vinyl acetate (EVA) serves as the Asics FuzeTora Twist’s outsole unit. The underside of this compound features non-prominent circular nodes that provide traction over the surfaces.

The grooves that are between the gripping lumps are meant to make the platform flexible.


Underfoot support is the responsibility of the full-length EVA foam. It carries the foot and keeps it safe from the ground forces. The back portion has three points that are elevated. These ‘walls’ are intended to center the foot and keep it steady.

An Ortholite® sockliner is placed on top of the main cushioning unit. This add-on provides additional cushioning. It also has anti-microbial and anti-moisture properties to ensure a clean and healthy in-shoe experience.


A seamless fabric is used for the external part of the Asics FuzeTora Twist’s upper unit. This material offers flexibility, breathability, and lightweight coverage. A pattern of stripes heighten the aesthetics.

The MONO-SOCK® Fit System is composed of a stretchy internal sleeve that hugs the foot securely. Its job is to protect from irritation and to accommodate the natural shape of the foot. Moreover, it completely replaces the traditional tongue unit, thereby converting the shoe into a slip-on model.

Round shoelaces snake across the instep, going through flat cords that act as eyelets. The mechanical grouping of these components aims to further hold the foot in place and keep it from quivering during the run.

Pull tabs are placed on the front and back of the one-piece collar. These stitched-on loops can be helpful when it comes to wearing and removing the Asics FuzeTora Twist.
