Representative of the color red and its symbolism of the sun in Japan, the METASPRINT™ Tokyo track spike features an exclusive colorway that's inspired by an athlete's burning passion to compete. This shoe is designed to equip competitive sprinters with a blend of power and stability to better their performance. With accumulated knowledge and development for sprint spikes done at the ASICS Institute of Sport Science (ISS), this shoe is designed to shorten the time period of contact with the ground while increasing propulsion with each stride. Constructed with a proprietary mesh upper that wraps the foot with a second-skin feel, this textile is also approximately 54% lighter than traditional mesh fabrics while still offering the same degree of durability. Complemented with DYNAWRAP™ technology, this shoe offers supportive paneling along the base of the laces, over the arch and in the midsole to securely hold the foot on the shoe's platform. Assisting track and field sprinters to generate powerful strides, the METASPRINT™ Tokyo model incorporates a honeycomb carbon fiber outsole plate to eliminate the need for spikes (pins). This outsole design allows sprinters to improve propulsion during strides because of its improved ground contact, rather than contact with pins.
Pronation is part of the natural movement of the human body and refers to the way your foot rolls inward for impact distribution upon landing. Understanding your pronation type can help you find a comfortable running shoe. The METASPRINT TOKYO is made for Neutral.
Normal size arches
There is even distribution from the front of the foot.
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.
Provides excellent comfort and breathability.
Enables better midfoot stability by keeping the foot centered on the shoe's platform.

Great for competitionThis is a great shoe for competition, so much better than Nike. But these are hard to use for 4 point start since they don’t have spikes, I will recommend for races or block starts only.
