- The Asics Gel Quest FF was created for a wide variety of athletic endeavors. It is Asics’ first cross-training shoe that incorporates the acclaimed FlyteFoam technology. It is widely used in the brand’s running footwear as it is crafted to provide supreme, lightweight cushioning.
- The shoe also features the proprietary GEL compound in the heel section for enhanced cushioning and impact protection. The sole unit also employs the DynaTruss Trusstic System to afford light support for the arch and add stability to the movement.
The Asics Gel Quest FF comes in both men’s and women’s versions. The available sizes for men are US 7 to 13, while ladies can choose between US 6 to 11.5. The shoe comes in a standard D - Medium width for men and in a B - Medium for women. It tends to run true to the sizing scheme.
The Gel Quest FF utilizes the brand’s AHAR (Asics High Abrasion Resistant) rubber compound to protect the bottom of the platform. It is created to be two times more durable than the traditional rubber in other Asics shoes. It also ensures that the foot gets sufficient grip on both indoor and outdoor surfaces. The wearer doesn’t have to worry about leaving scuffs on polished floors as the AHAR material is made to be non-marking.
Employing the FlyteFoam technology in its midsole unit, the Asics Gel Quest FF aims to deliver exceptional cushioning at the lightest weight possible. This compound is constructed of reinforced organic fibers which are claimed to provide better and more prolonged rebound than the regular foam material. It is also designed to be 55% lighter than the brand’s conventional EVA foam. This technology has been primarily used in Asics running shoes.
The rearfoot GEL cushioning is added in the heel. It is a soft material which contributes to shock attenuation in this high-impact area.
As the foot moves throughout the workout, it performs a number of inward and outward rolls due to the twisting in the midfoot. The DynaTruss Trusstic System is established on the medial side underneath the foam to prevent the foot from excessive twisting and ensure its stability.
The ComforDry sockliner is added for extra comfort and cushioning. It also helps in keeping the foot chamber dry and free of odor. It can be easily removed or replaced with an orthotic insert if needed.
The upper unit of the Gel Quest FF is made of a tightly-woven mesh. It offers a snug fit while allowing the foot to breathe inside the footwear.
Synthetic overlays wrap the toe box and the midfoot of the trainer. They render structure and support in these areas.
The external heel counter at the back assists in preventing the rearfoot from wobbling. It is more prominent on the medial side to provide special support when the foot rolls inwards during the heel-to-toe transition.
A traditional lace-up closure secures the fit on the instep of the trainer. The tongue is padded to protect the foot from the pressure of the laces. Two loops are added on the tongue to ensure that it doesn’t slide sideways during the movement.
