The GLIDERIDE™ shoe lets you run longer while expending less energy.GUIDESOLE™ technology in this sole is the key function in the GLIDERIDE™ shoe. Here is how it works: Improved cushioning reduces muscle load at foot strike. It does this with a combination of FLYTEFOAM® technology and GEL® technology cushioning. The stiff forefoot and dynamically curved sole increase running efficiency by reducing the movement of the ankle joint. A lower degree of ankle flexion means other muscles, such as the calf, don’t have to work as hard. Too much ankle movement at speed wastes energy. The shoe’s center of mass is closer to the heel, so it’s easier to swing the foot forward.The rolling motion you feel in this shoe actually propels the foot forward for increased efficiency by reducing the forward movement of the ankle. This lets you run farther with less effort. These characteristics give runners an experience unlike anything they’ve felt before.The GLIDERIDE™ shoe with GUIDESOLE™ technology lets you conserve energy for efficient runs. It’s something you have to feel to believe.
The curved sole design and stiff forefoot of our GUIDESOLE™ technology reduce ankle flexion and provide a shock-absorbent landing zone to lessen fatigue of other leg muscles and increase runner efficiency.
Rearfoot GEL® technology cushioning system
Attenuates shock during impact phase and allows for a smooth transition to midstance.
FlyteFoam® Midsole Technology
Our FlyteFoam® technology provides exceptional bounce back and responsiveness no matter the distance, utilizing organic super fibers to help reduce packing out that traditionally happens with softer, low density foams.
Engineered Mesh Upper
Multi-directional mesh material improves ventilation and stability.

Super Soft with Lots of POPThese are really soft underfoot, yet have a great energy when you push off that seems to propel you forward. The most energetic and exciting shoe from ASICS in recent memory!

Gliding the GlideRideI am an exercise walker, not a runner. I gave these shoes a go. They are the most comfortable Asics I have. I wear the Nimbus 21 (and now 22) to the gym. In comparison to the GlideRide, they seem clunky by comparison. These have an extra spring when fast walking which helps me walk faster. I have a fused left ankle, thus a different gait. These seem to help keep my knees pain free. Glad I bought these.
