Testing of the ASICS FUJILITE™ 2
To test this trail running shoe, I embarked on a 6km trail run in Lion’s Head Mountain, Cape Town. It was a great adventurous run on a beautiful sunny day and graced with 360 degrees of magnificent views of the “Mother City” (Cape Town), Table Mountain, and the ocean. I really enjoyed running with the ASICS FUJILITE™ 2 shoes and I could feel the lightweight shock absorption, propelling my stride forward as I moved through the trails. The nice thing about this shoe is the technology behind it. It has the ASICS proprietary outsole rubber, which provides high grip on various terrain, without compromising the durability, and even better, the multi-directional mesh upper material improves ventilation and stability. While running, I could feel how light the shoe was (as a result of the 55% light midsole FLYTEFOAM™ technology), giving me an ultra-light and responsive ride, which is a great benefit while running in highly technical terrain. In light of this, it goes without saying that I love the shoe and the technology behind it.
ASICS FUJILITE™ 2 is the best shoe for both short and long trail running adventures and I highly recommend it.
Keep an eye for my next shoe review; try out a pair of ASICS FUJILITE™ 2 shoes and happy trail running :).

Women's ASICS GEL-NIMBUS® 24 LITE-SHOW™ is for neutral and under pronating long-distance runners wanting to clock that mileage.

ASICS DYNABLAST™ 2 REVIEWby Dr Caroline Pule / Apr. 12, 2022
Women's ASICS DYNABLAST™ 2 is a good road running shoe designed for runners seeking a comfortable ride. It has fewer overlays on the upper, which reduces rubbing on your foot and therefore takes your post-run feeling to new heights. Furthermore, is formed with a soft, circular-knit that creates a more locked-in feel with a comfy touch.
