ASICS Amplica Men’s and Women’s Samples (subject to change)

Available January 2018 – MSRP $70.00

New to the ASICS lineup, the ASICS Amplica is an essentials-only performance trainer that gives the runner exactly what they need for daily miles and uptempo running with no extra frills. At a price point that’s hard to beat, we expect the Amplica to hit the ground running.

The midsole of the Amplica is constructed with ASICS’ new AmpliFoam EVA compound, which should provide a responsive ride for faster paces on the roads. The outsole has targeted rubber placements for a good grip on the roads, as well as flex grooves for an adaptive underfoot experience.

The upper is constructed without seams to minimize irritation, and the breathable mesh fabrication will allow for ample ventilation. An unobtrusive overlay design should give this shoe a snug hold without compromising comfort.

Preliminary Tech Specs

Weight*: 8.4 oz (men’s size 9), 6.9 oz (women’s size 7)
