Conviction X 2 has the characteristics that would help the wearers take their performance to new levels. It is a solid option if:

The outsole of the ASICS Conviction X 2 is made of the AHAR, which stands for ASICS High Abrasion Rubber. This compound is engineered to be more durable compared to regular rubber. It also absorbs shock to keep the foot comfortable. It features a tread pattern that promotes traction in different directions.
The heel section is designed to be flat and firm. It helps to keep the rearfoot steady during weight training.
At the forefoot, a structure of different in color can be found. It is a drainage port with multiple perforations that assist in drawing out moisture from the inside.
The ASICS Conviction X 2 employs a removable footbed for its midsole. This textile sockliner has perforations all throughout to keep the foot chamber well-ventilated. It also attenuates shock to prevent discomfort to the foot and other parts of the lower extremities.
Making up the upper of the ASICS Conviction X 2 are various components that work together to deliver a lightweight but supportive structure. It is mainly made of mesh which is breathable and keeps the inside aerated. Synthetic overlays are seamlessly incorporated into the fabric to reinforce the high-abrasion areas such as the vamp, the quarters, and the heel. The inside is lined with soft fabric that delivers a great in-shoe feel.
Amplified lateral support
The quarters use an additional technology called Rynoskin. This durable and tear-resistant material endures the wear and tear associated with intense workouts such as rope climbs. It creates a panel-like structure that integrates with the lacing system. When the laces are cinched, the panels are drawn closer to the foot, thereby amplifying the lateral support of the upper.
The ASICS Conviction X 2's rear section
The tongue is lightly padded and keeps the instep free from irritation. The front top of the tongue features the Lace Garage technology. It is a pocket where users can tuck the laces in so that they don’t unravel or get in the way while they are exercising.
Completing the lock-down fit is the plush collar. It prevents the heel from slipping out of the shoe by accident. It also keeps the ankle supported and free from chafing.
