  • The Asics Gel FujiLyte features an enhanced upper. It comes with lesser seams and overlays. It reduces the overall weight of the shoe while enhancing fit and comfort. It also comes with a unique drainage system that allows quick moisture drying.
  • The shoe also comes with a reliable outsole that delivers impressive traction on different surfaces. The lugs are designed to help runners tackle uphill and downhill runs effortlessly.

The Gel FujiLyte is available in standard running shoe length. It provides a snug midfoot, comfortable heel and standard size forefoot. It can accommodate medium sized foot. This shoe is also available standard width.


The outer sole of the shoe uses the trail specific outsole that has opposite facing lugs. It provides reliable traction during uphill climbs and downhill plunges. The lugs are aggressive enough to survive varied surfaces.
It also comes with rock protection plate that is strategically placed in the forefoot to protect the foot against stone bruising.


The shoe uses the Solyte midsole cushioning. This midsole material is lighter than the standard EVA cushioning which is found in the popular Asics Gel Contend 4. This ultra-light foam delivers a combination of responsive cushioning and durability.


A closed mesh upper comprises the upper of the Asics Gel FujiLyte. It is designed to prevent debris from entering the shoe while maintaining breathability. The lace pocket tucked the laces out of the way while running. The shoe also comes with a perforated sockliner that delivers added breathability and additional underfoot cushioning.
