Size and fit

Runners are treated to a true to size shoe with the Asics Gel Sileo. The standard measurements have become the basis of the creation of this product, so consumers are welcome to use their usual choices of size when vying for a pair. However, enjoying a comfortable in-shoe experience may depend upon the personal testing of the shoe, so one should be vigilant about the expected sizing scheme and the actual product that is available.


The outsole unit of the Asics Gel Sileo features the AHAR® or Asics High Abrasion Rubber. The job of this layer is to protect the midsole from the potentially damaging nature of the surfaces. It is also responsible for delivering traction, a trait that is essential for all running shoes. AHAR® is found in many shoe series from Asics, including the Patriot roster.


The midsole unit features a molded foam piece. This full-length technology is meant to carry the foot responsibly throughout the running session while also ensuring proper shock-attenuation with every step. It is not heavy of restrictive of the natural movement capacity of the human foot.

GEL® is a silicon-based accoutrement that is wedged in the heel part of the midsole unit. The job of this feature is to heighten the impact mitigating ability of the platform. This trait aims to smoothen the foot landings and help with the speed and ease of the heel-to-toe transitions.


A breathable mesh is used for the upper unit of the Asics Gel Sileo. This net-like material offers security and form-welcoming support. Its bevy of breathing holes has the job of ventilating the interior compartment, thus maintaining a cool and dry wrap that the foot can enjoy.

Stitched-on overlays cover the back, the sides, and the toe box. These layers are tasked with bolstering the durability of the silhouette. They also help the traditional lacing system in staving off in-shoe wobbling.

Semi-round shoelaces snake through stitched-on eyestays. These strands help the runner when it comes to adjusting the tightness or looseness of the shoe’s hug.

The tongue and collar are padded. These parts of the upper unit have the job of cushioning the topmost parts of the foot, including the Achilles tendon, the ankles, and the bridge. Shock-dissipation and steadiness are agreeable facets that define the existence of these elements.
