Running is a way of life for some, and for the rest of us, it’s a necessity in order to keep enjoying pizza, burgers, nachos, and the bevy of appetizer that are too appealing to pass on. If you’re anything like me running is both those few moments of peace during the day as well as an onslaught of pain in places you didn’t know could hurt. Don’t worry, with shoes like the GEL-Quantum 360 Knit from Asics, it’ll not only cushion every pounding step but make you look good while you do it.

Support:

The Rear and Forefoot Cushioning Systems provide that added layer of support throughout your training session. Weaving the comfort of the lightweight knit outer materials, impact-distributing elements, and non-slip heel clutch, the GEL-Quantum 360 Knit surrounds your foot with the comfort you’ll need to push that extra mile, climb that last flight, and feel fresh while doing it.

Fit:

One of the best features about the GEL-Quantum 360 Knit is the Ortholite X-40 Sockliner. While this has been a technology Asics has been developing for several years and shoe campaigns, this soft inner layer offers a conforming fit that adjusts with your foot through the whole running/stepping motion. Adding in the Heel Clutching System, Asics has found a winning combination for a pain-free run.

Performance:

If these shoes can help ME not dread a quick morning run, then imagine what it could do for a real runner. While we all make promises to ourselves to run more, eat right, and lead an overall better lifestyle, we often fall short when we can’t reach that peak we’re hoping for. The GEL-Quantum 360 Knit optimizes performance and provides all of the tools you’ll need to reach that next goal.
