  • The Asics Gel Quantum 90 is specifically engineered for those who have neutral foot mechanisms. It features a breathable mesh upper that delivers proper ventilation throughout the run.
  • The 90 degrees Rearfoot Gel cushioning is utilized in the shoe. It aims to enhance shock absorption, which results in a more comfortable and bouncier riding experience. High-energy return is then delivered to promote a more efficient run.
  • Integrated into the footwear is rubber outsole. The primary purpose of this material is to deliver exceptional traction and added durability to tackle a wide variety of paved surfaces.

Outsole

A durable rubber compound is integrated into the outsole of the Asics Gel Quantum 90. This component of the shoe aims to deliver excellent traction on different paved surfaces. It also gives durability to high-wear areas.

Midsole

Utilized in the shoe is the EVA midsole foam. The primary focus of this lightweight material is to provide the foot long-lasting cushioning.

Shock absorption during the impact phase is the sole responsibility of the 90 degrees Rearfoot GEL cushioning. This cushioning system lets the runner experience a smoother heel-to-toe transition. While providing a well-cushioned foot environment, it is sure to deliver a high-energy return.

The HG10MM Heel Gradient is used in crafting the Asics Gel Quantum 90. This feature is essential in shifting the body mass forward, reducing and preventing strain on the limbs.

The molded EVA sockliner helps reduce moisture while the Ortholite sock liner provides support. Both insoles are focused on delivering additional underfoot cushioning and comfort.

Upper

In the upper of the shoe are the mesh and synthetic materials. These elements provide the foot a breathable, sock-like coverage. Because of the elastic characteristics of the mesh,  it further enhances the fit on foot for a better running experience. It also comes with a breathable fabric lining. This aids in keeping the foot environment healthier and fresher.

The shoe has a seamless design for a smooth, irritation-free wrap. With the absence of traditional seams and stitches, the upper appears to be minimalistic yet a stylish running shoe.

A standard lace-up closure system has been used in the Asics Gel Quantum 90. With this feature, loosening and tightening the laces will be easier. Accidental slippage is then prevented when the fit is secured.

Featured in the Gel Quantum 90 are the cushioned collar and tongue. Asics added these materials for added comfort and enhanced fit.
