The METARACER is made for runners who want the most out of their fast-paced training and racing. GUIDESOLE technology features an improved toe-spring shape. This design is complemented by a carbon forefoot plate that gives structure to the curved sole. These two components are combined to reduce the movement of the ankle joint, helping runners save energy with each stride. The rolling motion of this shoe actually propels the foot forward, producing a totally unique running experience. Adding to it, the upper itself has drainage ports to release any water that might get into the shoe. The METARACER is designed to help you take your racing to the next level.

FlyteFoam Midsole: 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.
GuideSole: The curved sole design and stiff forefoot of ASICS GUIDESOLE technology reduce ankle flexion and provide a shock-absorbent landing zone to lessen fatigue of other leg muscles and increase runner efficiency.
ASICSGRIP: ASICS proprietary outsole rubber provides high grip on various terrain, without compromising durability.
Engineered Mesh Upper: Multi-directional mesh material improves ventilation and stability.
