When Asics releases a new shoe, you get excited. Why? Well because they spend a lot time getting it right. I have always loved the Nimbus, then the MetaRun and now the Asics FuzeX. This shoe not only looks good, it feels good.
Here’s a little more from the ride up:
Versatile and polished, fuzeX™ shoes provide optimal cushioning with a contemporary appeal. Introducing ASICS newest midsole technology, our proprietary fuzeGEL™ technology is a fusion of GEL® property and foam for the ultimate rearfoot shock absorption that transfers to the forefoot during takeoff. This exciting addition offers a unique ride with full ground contact and a quick responsiveness to keep you moving.
I’ve worn the shoes three times now and I’ll tell you I felt better with them on the road versus the treadmill. I have NO idea why but on the road they were responsive and awesome!
Asics isn’t just launching this shoe, they are also launching a cool contest (starting February 1st). You could win a pair of FuzeXplore or better…you could win a dream trip to a place you would like to run. I think for me it would be Fiji or Australia. I’ve always dreamed running right up to the edge of the Great Barrier Reef than throwing on some SCUBA equipment and exploring. Two of my favorite activities!
So here is how you enter:
Participate in the fuzeXplore photo contest by sharing where fuzeX™ will take you beginning February 1 at an ASICS retail location. Here’s how:
- Go to ASICSamerica.com/fuzeX-contestdetails to find a participating retailer near you
- Try fuzeX™ shoes. Head to a retail location and try on a pair of fuzeX™ shoes.
- Share. Tell us where fuzeX™ shoes will take you:
- In the try-on area at the store, find the floor mat featuring the fuzeX™ shoes arrows.
- Place your foot wearing the ASICS fuzeX™ shoes onto the floor mat
- Upload your photo or “shoefie” to Instagram or Twitter and complete the caption “fuzeX™ shoes will take me____” paired with the #FuzeXplore hashtag.
