Three years in the making, the newly revealed ASICS MetaRun is billed as "the best long distance running shoe possible." The lofty designation is achieved through five new technologies, which we'll likely see trickle down to ASICS' suite of running shoes over the next few years. The quintet of features take the form of the following: FlyteFoam, a newly patented lightweight midsole material, created with organic fibers for high-level cushioning; AdaptTruss, a newly patented and revolutionary carbon reinforced adaptive stability system; Sloped DUOMAX, a dual density midsole that adjusts smoothly to dynamic motion; Optimized Upper, built with a glove-like one-layer Jacquard Mesh and a MetaClutch exoskeleton external heel counter with built-in memory foam; and X-GEL hybrid high-tech gel, a refinement of the cushioning system that's been an ASICS hallmark for the previous two decades. Retailing for $250, the limited MetaRun will hit select ASICS retailers and online beginning November 28.
