Get on the trail with asics

Having the right shoe when going for a run is the most important part of being successful. With that in mind, Asics has been developing the perfect running shoes since its inception back in 1949. This Japanese-based company has years of research behind them, as they strive to provide beginners and athletes alike, with the perfect running footwear.

Here at Addnature, we have a range of Asics trail running shoes perfect for all types of running.

Going at speed

Asics has a wide variety of different style shoes for the various types of runners. For speed, the company has the Glide Ride. They come complete with a neutral design and FlyteFoam propel technology. But, while these are great on roads, they're not so great for the trail.

Asics trail running shoes also come in a wide range of options. We stock Asics trail running shoes for women and for men. As with other shoes from this brand, they're available for different runner types.

For the neutral foot, there's the Asics Gel-Nimbus series or Gel Trabuco Terra shoe. These are perfect for short to mid-length trail runs as they have additional traction for up and downhill running. Not only that, but the mesh upper is perfect for adapting to the natural movement of your foot. Additionally, you'll find there is good airflow so that your feet don't overheat. It's also not one of the tightest fitting shoes either, giving room for your toes to spread while retaining support.

Running for longer

However, the GT 2000 series is a great option for those long trail runs. These Asics trail running shoes for men and women also come in a range of colours. What makes these shoes so great is that they are lightweight but also superbly cushioned. The inclusion of an Ortholite foam inner is perfect for ensuring step comfort and much better foot stability.

Alternatively, you might be looking for some road running shoes, and Asics has a whole selection of these as well. In contrast to their trail shoes, road shoes require less surface grip, but a lot more cushioning. Some of the key features of this type of running shoe include:

  • FF Blast cushioning in the midsole
  • Forefoot cushioning for shock absorption
  • Various structures for neutrals and pronators

Accessorising your run

With your feet sorted, Asics will also make sure you're covered for the rest of your run too. The Asics running clothing range is dedicated to ensuring your comfort on a run, be it in the warm or the cold.

For those colder months, Asics has a range of running jackets with a mid-layer that offers thermal linings as well as breathable panels. Additionally, there is a range of running tops, t-shirts and long sleeves that are perfect for various different weather conditions.

You can also find a range of shorts for men and women. These shorts have 360-degree reflectivity so that you can be seen even when on a night run. They're crafted using soft, breathable fabric and are designed using a straight cut for optimal movement.
