Engineered mesh uppers will encase each foot in breathable comfort. Perforations in the fabric increase airflow to create a better, healthier environment for your feet to thrive in. Heat welded overlays swathe the foot to improve stability, reducing in-shoe slippage for smooth, distraction-free strides. A padded tongue and collar feature for an irritation-free fit, because we know how rubbing and blisters can ruin your day, and a removable EVA sockliner moulds to the shape of the foot for an extra layer of step-in comfort.
SpEVA resides in the midsole to provide durable and lightweight cushioning. Developed from a blend of E.V.A. and rubber ball material, SpEVA utilises the qualities of both. It improves rebound by 20%, enhancing performance by transferring energy absorbed from impact with the ground to the next step. A Rearfoot GEL Cushioning System sits under the heel to attenuate shock at heel-strike, promoting a smooth transition to midstance. ASICS contrast their cushioning with the Duomax Support System. Implemented on the medial side, it helps to control pronation and reduce the risk of injury, enhancing stability and support without sacrificing light weight or comfort.
An AHAR outsole completes the Phoenix 9. Blown, abrasion-resistant rubber delivers enhanced cushioning and durability, while flex grooves promote natural foot flexion for easy, unhindered strides. A Trusstic System has been implemented to reduce the weight of the sole unit and link the forefoot and rearfoot. It integrates the Guidance Line, to enhance gait efficiency, while increasing the shoe's torsional rigidity to prevent it from twisting.
