Among the major footwear brands, ASICS has been slow to adopt a minimalist lightweight program. Among the closest to bear any sort of minimally-minded positioning is their 33 line of footwear, inclusive of the Gel Hyper 33. The running shoe features a Propulsion Trusstic technology meant to mimic the plantar fascia in the arch, helping propel you forward all while providing a more flexible outsole. A 10mm heel drop with a “dual lower density midsole made of EVA and Solyte” offers an enhanced road feel. For the heel-striker, ASICS’ GEL Cushioning system is visible in the heel. The Gel Hyper 33 is available now at select retailers globally.
