Asics Patriot 9 Running Shoes Your run will feel more enjoyable when you hit the roads in the Gel-Patriot 9. These running shoes have been crafted using a mesh upper to allow extra breathability and keep you cool as you train. Synthetic/Mesh Upper The Asics Gel-Patriot 9 Running Shoe features a synthetic/mesh upper, which delivers a lightweight and comfortable fit with excellent breathability. The mesh panels allow hot air to leave the shoe, and cold air to penetrate; creating a better, healthier environment for your feet to thrive in. Synthetic overlays and a synthetic toecap feature for support and durability. A removable AmpliFoam sockliner delivers a comfortable, adaptive fit; keeping your feet happy on those long distance days. AmpliFoam Midsole The AmpliFoam technology is engineered to maintain durability at softer densities, providing better flexibility, comfort, and platform adaptability ideal for natural running. This new technology still reduces impact forces incredibly and saves the energy created transferring it to the forefoot where it can push you off into your next step, allowing you to run much more efficiently. Durable Outsole A Trusstic System has been implemented to reduce the weight of the sole unit and link the forefoot and rearfoot; working alongside the Guidance Line to encourage a more consistent and directional gait. An Asics High Abrasion Rubber outsole (AHAR) completes the shoe. AHAR is a lightweight rubber compound that offers brilliant traction; it boasts three times the durability of Asics' standard rubber. AHAR is strategically placed in high-stress areas, increasing the longevity of the shoe and landing you with a resilient and grippy ride.
