Designed for breaking records.

When ASICS released its METASPEED early last year, it marked a new era of human-centric design for the brand. Now more than 12 months on, the label returns to showcase the latest evolution of the series, and take things to the next level.

Utilizing the data accumulated from its athletes over the past year, ASICS introduces the METASPEED EDGE+ and METASPEED SKY+, two refined racing silhouettes crafted to more accurately cater to two distinct running styles and allow runners to reach new personal bests.

The METASPEED EDGE+ is designed to help cadence-type runners go faster by extending their stride length while allowing them to control their cadence more effectively. An energetic midsole underfoot — which houses a propulsive carbon plate — allows for a better gait motion for a longer time, which, in turn, makes it easier to conserve energy across larger distances.

Similarly, the METASPEED SKY+ is also designed to help runners increase their stride length, but thanks to an FF BLAST TURBO foam underfoot and a carbon plate will return more of a bounce-back and will allow energy conservation while maintaining pace towards the end of a race.

On April 24, ASICS athletes will be pushing themselves in the soon-to-be-released METASPEED + series in Malaga, Spain, to reach their own personal bests, in an event titled META : Time : Trials, which you can catch live here from 7:30am CET.

Both silhouettes are slated to be landing on June 14 and will be available globally via the ASICS webstore.
