Details

The METASPEED™ Sky racing shoe moves you towards a sound mind and a new personal best. It's designed to help you go faster by extending your stride length. Stride-style runners take a longer stride once they start increasing their speed, but their cadence primarily remains consistent. Thanks to an energetic midsole foam and a propulsive carbon plate, runners wearing these shoes will be able to conserve more energy while maintaining their pace at the later stages of the race.

Product Features

  • Engineered Mesh Upper
    Multi-directional mesh material improves ventilation and stability.
  • FLYTEFOAM BLAST TURBO™
    Cushioning that improves compression and creates a responsive feel underfoot.
  • Curved Sole Design
    Helps runners conserve more energy in each step
  • Carbon Plate
    Guides your foot throughout your step and propels your foot forward.
  • ASICSGRIP™ Technology

  • Pronation is part of the natural movement of the human body and refers to the way your foot rolls inward for impact distribution upon landing. Understanding your pronation type can help you find a comfortable running shoe. The METASPEED SKY is made for Neutral.
    • Foot Type: Normal size arches
    • Push Off: There is even distribution from the front of the foot.
    • How your foot contacts the ground: The foot lands on outside of the heel, then rolls inward (pronates) to absorb shock and support body weight.

What's the difference between Metaspeed Sky and Metaspeed Edge?

While both shoes are responsive running styles, the METASPEED Sky shoe creates a stronger rebound because of the midsole's taller stack height. Its aerial-driven properties cause the runner to experience a higher bounce between steps. This version is more practical for runners (Stride style) who keep a similar cadence while increasing their speed.

The METASPEED Edge Shoe features a lower midsole stack height than the METASPEED Sky Shoe. This allows runners (Cadence style) to comfortably guide their foot to experience smoother transitions in the forward direction. As a result, they're able to adjust their pace more easily.
