Reliable traction over surfaces

The grooves that are between the gripping lumps are meant to make the platform flexible.

FuzeTora Twist provides underfoot support

Underfoot support is the responsibility of the full-length EVA foam. It carries the foot and keeps it safe from the ground forces.

The back portion has three points that are elevated. These ‘walls’ are intended to center the foot and keep it steady.

Clean and healthy in-shoe experience

An Ortholite sockliner is placed on top of the main cushioning unit. This add-on provides additional cushioning. It also has anti-microbial and anti-moisture properties to ensure a clean and healthy in-shoe experience.

Asics FuzeTora Twist seamless

A seamless fabric is used for the external part of the Asics FuzeTora Twist’s upper unit. This material offers flexibility, breathability, and lightweight coverage.

Stretchy internal sleeve

A pattern of stripes heighten the aesthetics. The MONO-SOCK Fit System is composed of a stretchy internal sleeve that hugs the foot securely. Its job is to protect from irritation and to accommodate the natural shape of the foot.

Moreover, it completely replaces the traditional tongue unit, thereby converting the shoe into a slip-on model.

Asics FuzeTora Twist secures the foot in place

Round shoelaces snake across the instep, going through flat cords that act as eyelets. The mechanical grouping of these components aims to further hold the foot in place and keep it from quivering during the run.
