Asics Gel-Flux 3 Running Shoe Boasting Rearfoot and Forefoot GEL Cushioning and a bouncy SpEVA midsole, the GEL-Flux 3 model is athletic, cushioned, and even a little bit peppy. Upper Mesh uppers will encase each foot in breathable comfort. Perforates in the fabric increase airflow, creating a better, healthier environment for your feet to thrive in. Synthetic overlays surround the midfoot and heel in firm support; they help to anchor the foot to the midsole and reduce in-shoe slippage for smooth, distraction-free strides. Reflective details complete the upper, increasing your visibility to passing vehicles and keeping you safe on those late night adventures. California slip lasted for extreme stability and comfort. Midsole A generous helping of SpEVA resides in the midsole to supply durable bounce-back. Lightweight and resilient, the material reduces the amount of energy lost in the gait cycle; therefore it reduces fatigue, keeping you driven for longer. Sitting beneath the SpEVA platform, and complimenting its bouncy nature, are the rearfoot and forefoot GEL Cushioning Systems. They work to attenuate shock during the impact phase; sparing your joints as you sprint down onto hard, unforgiving concrete, and allowing for a smooth transition to mid-stance. Outsole The Trusstic System has been implemented to reduce the weight of the sole unit and link the forefoot and rearfoot; working alongside the Guidance Line technology to encourage a more consistent, directional gait. A Durasponge Outsole completes the Asics Gel Flux 3; the blown rubber enhances cushioning and grip in the forefoot. AHAR (Asics High Abrasion Resistant rubber) has been strategically placed over the heel, a high-stress area, to supply excellent grip without compromising the shoe's permanence.
