- Asics presents the 2nd version of the Pursuit with very little changes. The changes are mostly made to make the upper more flexible and adaptable to the runner’s foot shape. One clear change in this neutral running shoe is the removal of the leather-like overlay in the forefoot. This is replaced by a TPU overlay for lighter and more durable support.
- The heel is no longer as structured as before. It now features a synthetic overlay that still effectively prevents heel slippage. The heel is more comfortable as well because of this update.
Asics uses standard fit and sizing in the Pursuit 2 just like the original model. Runners with medium measurements will love the average fit of the heel and forefoot plus a snug hold in the midfoot. Available widths are D and B while sizes are from 6 to 15 for the men’s and 4 to 11 for the women’s.
Carbon rubber is found in the heel for better protection against wear and tear while blown rubber is located in the forefoot for enhanced traction on the road. This is a full contact outsole that gives the runner sufficient grip on a multitude of surfaces.
The midsole is the standard of most entry-level shoes in Asics’ fold. Just like the popular Asics Gel Contend 4, tt has the Gel Cushioning System in the heel for shock attenuation. A standard EVA occupies the whole length of the shoe for cushioning. The Asics’ proprietary Trusstic technology or the midfoot shank offers torsional stability without adding weight.
Runners will experience sufficient airflow as Asics uses standard mesh all throughout the shoe. There are also TPU overlays that add structure and support. The interior comfort comes from adequately padded heel and tongue together with the near seamless interior. Adding step-in comfort and support is a removable sockliner, which can be replaced with custom orthotics for a more personalized fit and support.
