New to Asics’ popular line of cushioned, neutral trainers for Fall 2013 will be the Gel Flux. Nothing too groundbreaking here, but we expect this shoe to be a solid offering for runners looking for great underfoot protection and high mileage durability without the bells and whistles of higher priced options. Plus, Seattle Seahawks fans will appreciate the Men’s colorway, shown below.
What to Watch For
- Trusted Cushioning: Forefoot and heel Gel units in a full length SpEVA midsole provide plenty of protection from the hard road below.
- Smooth Ride: Flex grooves in the forefoot along with tech such as Asics’ Guidance Line ensure a smooth heel to toe transition.
- Competitive Weight: According to Asics, the Flux will slot in at 11.2 oz in Men’s size 9 and 9.3 oz in Women’s size 8. That means it should fall right in between the upcoming Gel Cumulus 15 and Gel Nimbus 15.
