The fuzeX is popular with heavy and tall guys for comfort, quality and construction (I’m one of them!).
As a whole, I think that the fuzeX TR shoe will suit athletes who do not want heavy ones to weigh them down during training sessions.
- Asics is known for delivering great running shoes, but with the FuzeX TR, the company proves that running is not its only forte. The shoe was designed with a versatile workout in mind.
- It employs a proprietary fuzeGel technology. It combines the Asics’ Gel compound and a regular foam material to offer ample shock absorption in the heel and a bounce back in the forefoot.
- Another notable feature is the Solyte midsole material. It is claimed to be more lightweight than the EVA and the SpEVA. Yet, it is also designed to be more durable and provide more cushioning than the two.
- Finally, the shoe makes use of the Agilityweb. It is a brand’s own design of the outsole pattern which aims to accommodate multi-directional movement and traction.
The Asics FuzeX TR comes in both men’s and women’s sizes. It tends to run on the small side lengthwise, so it might be necessary to get a half or full size bigger. The shoe has a standard width profile of D - Medium for men and B - Medium for women.
The outsole of the FuzeX TR features the Agilityweb, a multidirectional groove pattern that offers steadiness, as well as flexibility.
The shoe employs the AHAR Plus (Asics High Abrasion Rubber) to protect the platform. The AHAR Plus is 50% more durable and three times more abrasion-resistant than the brand’s standard AHAR technology. The AHAR PLUS has a spongy quality to it that allows it to remain lightweight as well. It is a common outsole material for Asics training shoes.
The midsole of the FuzeX TR is made from the fuzeGel, a material that results in the fusion of gel and foam. This technology is lightweight, comfortable and adaptable. It effectively absorbs shock and then propels the foot forward, ready for the next move. The forefoot gel also helps in reducing the shock during propulsion.
Another technology used for the midsole is the Solyte. It is a spongy material derived from resin which is commonly used in vehicle bumpers for absorbing shock. The Solyte is stated to be lighter than other common midsole materials such as EVA and SpEVA and to have 20% more shock absorption.
The shoe also features Asics’ removable Comfordry sock liner that not only wicks moisture but also adds a layer of cushioning.
To ensure comfort, Asics created the FuzeX TR using seamless materials. With no stitches and seams, the discomfort brought about by friction is reduced.
It uses an open mesh upper. It is designed to ensure efficient air circulation to keep the foot cool throughout the workout.
A traditional lacing system is used in this training shoe. It accommodates the fit preferences of the wearer.
Thin overlays are printed onto the main mesh material. Connecting directly to the lacing system, these add-ons provide a secure fit while also giving more structure to the whole upper unit.
