  • The Asics FuzeX Rush Adapt is a running shoe that’s meant for those who have neutral pronation. Its underfoot platform has also been designed to support those who have supination. A full-length foam carries the foot throughout the running session, bringing cushioning and shock attenuation to the performance.
  • A proprietary rubber compound covers the vital sections of the platform’s base. It also provides surface grip, a trait that is essential for every running shoe. Flex grooves encourage the natural bending capacity of the foot.
  • A flexible mesh is used on the upper unit of this product. It hugs the foot and accommodates its motion and the natural swelling that comes with high-impact activities such as running. The padded tongue and collar hold the foot in place.

The Asics FuzeX Rush Adapt was designed to be true to size. Its length profiles aim to follow the regular preferences of consumers. When it comes to width, the available options are B – Medium for the women’s iteration and D – Medium for men.

An Ortholite® last utilizes a moisture-managing underfoot foundation that adds a bit more cushioning.

AHAR® or Asics High Abrasion Rubber is made of a resilient compound that is capable of shielding the critical areas of the platform from wear and tear. It is layered explicitly on the contact points of the heel and forefoot.

Flex grooves encourage the foot to flex naturally as it cycles through each step. The toe-off phase of the gait is the one that benefits the most from this construction because it is the point during the run that maximizes the bending capacity of the metatarsals, muscles, and tendons.

The underfoot cushioning system of the Asics FuzeX Rush Adapt primarily consists of the fuzeGEL™ foam, which features the amalgamation of foam and the GEL® shock-attenuating system. Its job is to attenuate the impact forces during the foot-strike and to deliver a springy toe-off.

A sock liner offers additional support for the foot-pad. It can be removed or replaced with a custom insert of the wearer’s choosing.

The Adapt Mesh™ is a grid-like configuration that acclimates to the shape and motion of the foot. It’s also designed to be lightweight and breathable.

The interior chamber features a seamless construction to prevent hot spots and potential blistering. It even allows the runner to wear the Asics FuzeX Rush Adapt without donning socks first.

Discrete eyelets permit an unrestricted fit. They also allow the fabrics of the upper to adjust to the fit-preferences of the runner without stretching too much.
