Lightweight yet durable outsole

The underside of the Asics Weldon X is lined with the AHARPLUS. This rubber compound is designed to be 50% more durable than the original AHAR technology. Unlike typical rubber, AHARPLUS is lightweight but hard-wearing. It also provides shock absorption and traction.

The trainer has flex grooves in the forefoot to promote natural foot flexion. It also has a deep groove running down the middle which keeps the foot stable during the walking gait cycle.

The trainer also has additional layers of GEL Cushioning System at the rear and forefoot areas. They enhance the shock attenuation of the midsole unit and helps to evenly distribute the weight of the wearer during the walking gait cycle. The Solyte footbed is made of the EVA foam. This spongy material has 20% more shock absorption than traditional foam units. It is also made to be durable for long-lasting comfort.

Breathable upper

The Asics Weldon X utilizes the Flex Mesh upper. This seamless material is lightweight and breathable to keep the inside of the footwear fresh. Synthetic overlays are fused with the fabric to protect against abrasion, give lateral support, and maintain the structure of the upper.

The Asics Weldon X's tongue and collar

The lightly padded tongue and collar add comfortable elements to the footgear. The tongue protects the instep against irritation caused by the pressure created by the laces. As for the plush collar, it keeps the heel locked down and prevents accidental shoe removal.
