Enhanced outsole traction

The Wet Grip technology figures prominently on the outsole of the Asics MetroLyte. Typically used for studless snow tires, organic and inorganic components make up the outsole for improved traction on wet and slippery surfaces. Horizontal grooves serve as channels for water to pass through, allowing the raised portions to break the water layer and increase the outsole’s contact area.

Shock-absorbent midsole

The Asics MetroLyte utilizes a low-profile midsole for boosted steadiness and shock absorption. It also serves as underfoot cushioning.

Moisture-wicking underfoot

The removable ComforDry full-length memory foam sockliner has a contoured arch for a comfortable underfoot feel. It also has a moisture-wicking ability to give a drier and cooler environment for the foot.

Breathable upper

The Asics MetroLyte uses a mesh material for a comfortable and breathable upper. It is fashioned after the brand’s proprietary MONO-SOCK fit system for a foot-conforming fit. The facade is accentuated by soft suede overlays that reinforce the sides of the shoe.

Asics MetroLyte Upper

Snug lacing system

The footwear also features a thin tongue that is attached to the upper. This design prevents it from moving around and bunching up.

Even though it is a slip-on walking shoe, it still uses a traditional lacing system. It serves to adjust the fit of the upper.
