Designed For Neutral Overpronation



  • 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.


  • Foot Type

    Low arches or flat feet
  • Push Off

    Big toe and second toe do majority of the work.
  • Considered Injuries

    Shin splints, plantar fasciitis, bunions, heel spurs.
  • How your foot contacts the ground

    The foot lands on outside of heel, then rolls inward (pronates) excessively, transferring weight to inner edge instead of ball of the foot.
  • Optimized Upper
    featuring a glove-like, one-layer Jacquard Mesh and MetaClutch exoskeleton external heel counter with built-in memory foam
  • 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.
  • I.G.S® (Impact Guidance System) Technology
    ASICS design philosophy that employs linked componentry to enhance the foot's natural gait from heel strike to toe-off.
  • Ortholite® Sockliner
    Moisture management (Ortholite is a registered trademark of O2 Partners LLC).
  • Heel Clutching System™ Technology
    Exoskeletal heel counter provides improved support and creates improved heel fitting environment.
  • AdaptTruss
    newly patented and revolutionary carbon reinforced adaptive stability system
  • Sloped DUOMAX™
    dual density midsole that adjusts smoothly to dynamic motion
  • X-GEL
    high-tech hybrid gel

Metarun is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 32.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Metarun...not to snug. The Metarun is surprisingly light in weight. The cushioning feels great. My only grievance is that it doesn't grip my foot as well as my old Nike running shoes do...I just miss the "security" of a snug fit around the top of my foot.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love them! Have two pairs of Asics for running but these are the best by far. Issues with tight calves and shin splints disappeared and fastest ever times for my runs from 5 to 10k. Yes they are expensive but I run 3-4 times a week so important to have good running shoes and I'd never send these back. All good :-)

Rated 1 out of 5 by from The reviews greatly overstated shoe. My daily routine is 8-10 mile walks. After one week shoes are in permanent timeout. Customer service great and I now have better ASICS shoe for me. FlyteFoom.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from NO UPDATE, you're buying OLD STOCK FROM 2015 This shoe is not an updated metarun... It is just them selling the original production run. Maybe that is a bonus for you if you like toe grip, otherwise almost the exact same shoe as the Kayano for $100 more. Oh, and the toe box is more narrow, which I liked. Just wait until they update because you're not getting a superior shoe for the price. Buy Kayanos. Trust me. Great shoe though. Just not worth the extra c note!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Comfortable, Durable (and pricey) Very happy with my Metaruns, which I'm using as my go to pair for running at all distances. Comfortable toebox, with none of the mesh tearing issues I had with my Gel Kayano 21s (i.e., my big toe through the top of the mesh). Not sure if price differential is worth it (about to buy Kayano 23), but don't regret the purchase.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best running show ever after 20+ years of running High tech, high stability and relatively low weight. I've been struggling with a calf injury for a couple of years and these shoes solved the issue.
