Heel Drop
9 mm
190 g/6.7 oz
The METARACER™ shoe is made for runners who want the most out of their fast-paced training and racing. The upper is designed to capture as much airflow as possible, which helps keep feet cool. This cooling provided by the shoe means your body does not have to work as hard to keep you cool. The upper also has drainage ports to release any water that might get into the shoe. GUIDESOLE™ technology features an improved toe-spring shape. These two components are combined to reduce the movement of the ankle joint, helping runners save energy with each stride. Combined with a carbon fiber plate in the midsole, this shoe generates a rolling motion that actually propels the foot forward, producing a totally unique running experience. The METARACER™ shoe with GUIDESOLE™ technology is designed to help you take your racing to the next level.

Designed For Underpronation Neutral



  • Foot Type

    High arches
  • Push Off

    The pressure is on smaller toes on outside of foot.
  • Considered Injuries

    Plantar fasciitis, shin splints, ankle strain.
  • How your foot contacts the ground

    The outer side of the heel hits the ground at an increased angle with little or no normal pronation, causing a large transmission of shock through the lower leg.


  • Foot Type

    Normal size arches
  • Push Off

    There is even distribution from the front of the foot.
  • Considered Injuries

    Less likely due to effective shock absorption, but neutral runners are not immune to injury.
  • How your foot contacts the ground

    The foot lands on outside of the heel, then rolls inward (pronates) to absorb shock and support body weight.
  • Carbon Plate
    Carbon forefoot plate that gives structure to the curved sole.
  • GUIDESOLE™ Technology
    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.
  • 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.
  • FLYTEFOAM® Technology
    Provides lightweight cushioning.
  • ASICSGRIP™ Technology
    ASICS proprietary outsole rubber provides high grip on various terrain, without compromising durability.
  • WET GRIP® Outsole
    An outsole made from a special blend of organic and non-organic components, designed to enhance traction even on wet surfaces.
  • Engineered Mesh Upper
    Multi-directional mesh material improves ventilation and stability.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Asics Metaracer They trick you into running faster, and you don't feel the difference. Feel as light as the old Asics Piranhas ... with carbon plates.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Good I bought these shoes for racing 5k's. These shoes are absolutely amazing. From the lightweight upper to the carbon plate, these are one of the best racing shoes out there.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Nope I think I would be in love if these were a tad wider, especially the toes. I HATE toe squish and shoes like this are why runners have mangled feet. That being said they were super light. Heel and mid-foot felt great. I imagine these are quite fast. Sadly, So tight I wasn’t even going to try them out. Please make some foot shaped shoes like Altra with asics technology

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Needs more cushioning. Could have been much better if there’s more cushioning. Release the prototype/developmental shoes that Sara Hall used.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The new ASICS running shoe meta All the engineering and functionality you love about ASICS except now they look cool too. I will always end up choosing functionality over looks, so it’s awesome I get both with these. Seriously, best looking ASICS running shoes in 20 years. Gold star for the designers. I’ve put some good mileage on these without any drop in performance. I honestly couldn’t tell you if there’s a huge difference in energy return via carbon fiber plate, but for a lightweight shoe with moderate cushioning, the torsional stability is exceptional.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Small fast runs, light weight This shoe is very light as I am a Gel-Nimbus fan myself. If you are a fast runner, need a neutral shoe and doesn’t need much cushion in the front of your feet then this probably might work for you. I am going to use it for 5K or 3.5 mile runs (especially in the terrains of Pittsburgh, PA). The size, it is a bit difficult to put your feet in without a shoehorn. It does have that tight grip in the center of the foot (where the arch is) and good space in the front. It was not easy to remove the shoe. You definitely need thinner socks as it was a discomfort with the thicker socks. The run was quite fast and your feet tend to land more on the front than on your heel, which is a good sign of running but there is not much of cushion on the front so it ends up with pain in the upper calf/lower-back knee when you run for longer than 4.5 miles. This is probably a shoe for fast runners who want to run 5K, who need less cushion in the front and is a good, light weight shoe. But, other than the new carbon plate inside, I don’t think the price is worth it.
