Updates to Asics Gel Moya

  • The Asics Gel Moya is an introductory daily running shoe that aims to deliver a luxurious feel and performance at the same time. This sleek running shoe provides the comfort and support needed by the user inside a stylish package. Designed for neutral pronation, the Gel Moya is primarily designed to absorb shock and help the body weight of the runner.
  • The shoe has a seamless mesh upper and an internal fabric lining that offer a breathable and comfortable coverage. Its design includes a lace-up vamp, tongue label, lateral striping, and a prominent logo, for the perfect combination of functionality and aesthetics.
  • With Gel cushioning, the Asics Gel Moya carefully and efficiently attenuates shock that results from impact during footstrike, allowing for a smooth and continuous transition phase. All that midsole power is emphasized by the ever-reliable Asics High-Abrasion Rubber (AHAR) outsole as a sturdy and protective unit.

Asics Gel Moya size and fit

The Asics Gel Moya is claimed to be built with standard running shoe measurements. Thus, it is designed to be true-to-size, fitting wearers according to their usual shoe sizes. The silhouette of the Gel Moya leans slightly towards the narrow, which would cater more to the middle to lower end of the foot-volume spectrum. The Asics Gel Moya is available in D – Medium for men and B – Medium for women.

Outsole

Just like the popular Asics Patriot 10, the Asics Gel Moya uses the brand’s signature high-abrasion carbon rubber, called the AHAR, as its outsole. Known for its durability and strength, carbon rubber guarantees to bring the needed grip and longevity, so that the runner can easily traverse any surface on the road.

Midsole

Asics brings their tried-and-trusted Gel cushioning in the midsole of the Gel Moya. This standard technology comes in the form of a soft, gel-based material that is inserted within the foam of the midsole. When it comes to function, the Gel cushioning is known for reducing impact, absorbing shock, and providing comfort to the underfoot.

The Gel cushioning is almost always strategically placed in the rearfoot and forefoot areas of the midsole for specific reasons: At the back, during heel strike, Gel softens the impact for a smoother transition. In front, upon forward movement, less shock is generated so that toe-off is more efficient.

The rest of the midsole of the Gel Moya is composed of the SpEVA, which is Asics’ special blend of ethylene-vinyl acetate (EVA) foam. SpEVA includes a unique addition of rubber that aids in the rebound property of the midsole, therefore enhancing performance through energy transfer.

An Ortholite insole gives the wearer a plush underfoot comfort while preventing moisture buildup. It is known for being a breathable sock liner that also keeps the foot healthy with its antimicrobial property.

Upper

A combination of mesh and synthetic leather comprise the upper of the Asics Gel Moya. The material wraps the entire length of the shoe for total breathable coverage. Meanwhile, the medial and lateral sides are installed with thermoplastic polyurethane (TPU) panels that act as support and bring structural integrity. They also hold the shoelaces for a firm and secure fit.

The tongue and collar of the Gel Moya are lightly padded with foam to provide added comfort, especially for wearers who tend to get irritations due to sensitive skin. The plush quality of these parts prevents them from causing painful rubbing.
