ASICS has revolutionized running shoe design with FluidAxis. Until now, running shoe technology has been designed around the up-and-down movement of the ankle joint--but the foot doesn't just move like this. That's why we've redesigned the running shoe with FluidAxis™. It works with the foot to enable this natural rotation.
Founded in 1912, the American Podiatric Medical Association (APMA), is the leading resource for foot and ankle health information. Currently, the organization represents a vast majority of the estimated 15,000 podiatrists in the country. ASICS is diligent in submitting our footwear to the APMA for testing and approval year-in and year-out.
ASICS has always been a company that believes in utilizing the latest scientific and medical research to develop the most biomechanically sound footwear available – and submitting our products to the most highly respected podiatrists in the world qualifies all that research and development, and the end-result is footwear that can greatly improved the quality of life for the person wearing it.
We’ve revolutionized Running Shoe design. Until now, running shoes have been designed around the up-and-down movement of the ankle joint, but the foot doesn’t just move like this…it also moves from side to side using the Subtalar Joint.
This rotation is called Pronation (Rolling the ankle Inward), and Supination (Rolling the ankle Outward).
That’s why we’ve redesigned the running shoe with FluidAxis™, consisting of deep flex grooves that work with the foot to enable this natural rotation, allowing for a more responsive and natural ride.View the Footwear
FOR UNDERPRONATORS: This category is designed to meet the needs of Supinators/Underpronators (people that roll their ankle Outward through their step) to mild overpronators (rolling ankle slightly inward). This type of runner needs a great deal of shock reduction because their feet don't absorb shock effectively. Instead of the foot's connective tissue absorbing shock with a neutral (which is ideal) landing position, your bones and joints take the brunt of the shock.View the Footwear
FOR MILD TO MODERATE OVERPRONATORS: The Structured Cushioning category is designed for runners who Over-Pronate (roll their ankle inward as they land and toe-off again) slightly more than normal. As their foot hits the ground, it tends to land in a neutral to slightly over-pronated (rolled inward) position. These runners need their shoes to control a small degree of Over-Pronation, but they don't need all the shock reducing attributes of a Cushioning category shoe.View the footwear
For Moderate to Severe Overpronators
The Maximum Support category is designed for runners who tend to land and then excessively over-pronate through their step (ankle rolled severely inward) . Like the Cushioning category, these runners are not using all their body's natural shock-reduction mechanisms. What makes them different from those in the Cushioning category, is that these runners' feet are sometimes hitting the ground in an already over-pronated state, with their feet rolling inward even further after landing, focusing all that weight and shock onto a small portion of the foot, as opposed to spreading it more evenly as it would in someone with a neutral step. Like the Structured Cushioning category, these runners need significantly more help to control the extreme degree that they're rolling their ankle inward through their step (over-pronating).
