Multi surface-optimized outsole

The Asics High Abrasion Rubber is placed throughout the entire outsole of the shoe to provide exceptional durability and grip on any surface. It is designed to be dense and flat to accommodate weightlifting exercises. This component has been carried over to the next iteration of the shoe, the Asics Conviction X 2.

Stabilized midsole

The midsole of the shoe utilizes a perforated sock liner to optimize moisture drainage and ensure better breathability.

A thin and stiff insole combined with a minimalist heel-to-toe drop of 4mm aim to provide a steady platform. It helps athletes in transmitting the force of the movement and making foot adjustments faster.

The Conviction X jumped into the latest craze of adding the external TPU (thermoplastic polyurethane) heel counter, which serves as an extra stabilizer for the rear foot during agile movement and heavy lifting.

Breathable upper

The upper makes use of a Seamless Construction, which eliminates the chance of irritation and friction, offering a smoother and more comfortable feel. A mesh fabric was placed in the toe box area for enhanced comfort and breathability.

Abrasion-resistant panels

Increased durability of the upper is ensured by the Rhynoskin synthetic leather in the quarter panels of the shoe. It is an abrasion and tear resistant material which is especially helpful in protecting the shoe during rope climbs.
