The meaning of cushioning moves forward on the GEL-QUANTUM 360™ VII sneaker. By working with the ASICS Institute of Sport Science, we reinvented key running technologies for daily use. Its upper is reworked with water-resistant materials and reflective details. These components help keep water from entering the shoe's interior while improving visibility in low-light settings. This shoe’s GEL® technology is structured to create better shock absorption underfoot. Its scutoid shape also allows you to move more naturally during everyday scenarios (like on-foot commuting or exploring new environments). Meanwhile, the FLYTEFOAM® BLAST cushioning in the heel has been fine-tuned to give this shoe better rearfoot shock absorption.
