The GlideRide 1 has been my favourite shoe, so I was very excited when my new pair of the the follow-up, GlideRide 2, arrived a few weeks ago.

At first glance, you notice the curvy feature of the sole. It has that smooth and efficient roll from heel to your toe, designed to help you run more efficiently and further with less energy. 

When you put them on, the curved sole almost prone you to start running! 

When you put them on, the curved sole almost prone you to start running! It takes a couple of runs to get used to the rolling sensation, but when you get used to it, its an almost magical feeling. It is also very comfortable due to the smart construction of the mid-sole.
Even though it is just slightly lighter than its predecessor you can feel the difference, especially after running a while. It is a lightweight shoe but at the same time very well cushioned and airy.

Performance
I have done the full spectrum from 1K repeats, 5k:s to a full marathon in the shoe and it feels great at all distances. I have been able to do a little bit of everything, and I always feel fast and smooth in this shoe Actually I felt like I hardly landed before I was shot out of a canon again. What more can you ask for?

The durability of this shoe seems very good so far. I’ve been able to get tons of kilometers on gravel, tartan, asphalt, and some lighter terrain and the GlideRide 2:s still have that new feel about them.

Who’s this shoe for?
The GlideRide 2 has a five-millimeter drop, and it is excellent for somebody who is a neutral runner or somebody who under pronates to get them back in the middle. 

If you are looking for a similar experience in a faster and lighter version, you should consider ASICS EvoRide2, which is designed on the basis of the same GuideSole-technology. But if you need a neutral running shoe for the majority of your weekly runs, a running shoe with endless miles of entertainment, ASICS GlideRide 2 is the shoe for you.

Conclusion
Its fun, its a cruiser and it will provide the most easy-going runs with an entertaining twist. Its one of those running shoes that you will surely remember!
