Asics Patriot 12: Sheer focus on comfort and support

The Asics Patriot 12 is a daily trainer that has its eye on cushion and stability. Made with an EVA midsole, it provides plush comfort while having enough stiffness for support. Add in the internal heel counter, the foot is kept aligned throughout the run. 

Because it's meant for the long haul, the mesh upper takes comfort up a notch. It's highly breathable, keeping the foot well-ventilated.
