There has been a huge surge in recent years of urban running. In January, Asics celebrated the urban running culture at its Global Launch Event in Los Angeles. The purpose of this event was to create cultural communities of people that have a shared passion for sport and fitness. It is the first event of its kind that celebrates the urban running movement.
Hitting the city streets is different than running at the gym. It is important to choose footwear that is durable and comfortable enough for city running. Asics unveiled the FuzeX Rush running shoe at the Global Launch Event. These shoes are the perfect pair of kicks for tackling the city streets.
The FuzeX Rush runners are lightweight and versatile. These performance sneakers have a streamlined, clean appearance. The midsole consists of a gel-based and foam cushion that uses fuzeGEL™ technology to provide responsive cushioning on a range of running surfaces. So, these sneakers provide excellent shock absorption even on hard city streets.
Asic’s FuzeX Rush sneakers deliver a propulsive, responsive feel during toe-off. The sock-like upper support the quicker, shorter runs that you will find in urban running. Another great feature with these sneakers is the removable sock liner. So, if you need to wear an ankle brace or another orthopaedic brace, you can just remove the sock liner to accommodate the brace.
Durability is important when running in any urban environment. You need a shoe that can take the abuse. The AHAR rubber outsole on these running shoes makes them durable and tough enough for urban running.
