The Nike React Infinity Run Keeps You Running

Press Release:

Imagine a world where every runner gets faster. Pretty exciting. But also a hearty challenge, given the presumed hurdle of injury. But are injuries actually inevitable? The question spurred Nike to focus efforts on the potential of reducing runner injury, and its newest running shoe, the Nike React Infinity Run, is a step toward that objective.

When Nike debuted the Zoom Vaporfly 4% in 2017, racers cheered; the shoe was built for notching PRs and breaking limits — privileging running economy. The same year, Nike React, a proprietary foam offering game-changing cushioning and energy return debuted. In running, the technology answered for a near impossible desire: A feel that was soft, resilient, lightweight and durable.

The Nike React Infinity Run encompasses the best qualities of those two technologies — a fine-tuned blend of biomechanical efficiency and cushioning — for a breakthrough shoe that offers a more democratic solution to stability, and an advance from traditional motion-control designs.

The Infinity Run provides a soft, responsive platform and delivers it with a widened midsole. Similar to the geometry of the 4%, the Infinity has a rocker-like bottom that yields a more fluid transition from foot strike to toe off.

This inspired combination has an instant impact on a runner. Slip the shoe on, and it feels at once stable and energetic, the spring in the React foam ready to fuel miles. The Infinity’s rocker-geometry encourages a slight lean forward, moving a runner’s foot strike from heel to midfoot, or even forefoot; this creates a natural forward feel of propulsion. The wider platform, and the supportive foam that accompanies it, provides a reassuring feel — the shoe gently guides the foot in a smooth, straight line, reducing side-to-side wobbling and movement.

These attributes make the Nike React Infinity Run ideal for the kind of runs that don’t fall into the silo of interval or tempo, long run or race. This shoe matches best to base-run days, those middle-mileage, moderate efforts. In fact, an external study conducted in Vancouver, BC on 226 runners in the Nike React Infinity Run and the Nike Structure 22, a traditional motion control shoe, showed that runners in the Nike React Infinity had a 52 percent lower injury rate than in the motion control shoe, with wearers confirming that they felt less pain in their knees and feet.

Adidas 4D range expands with new reflective Alphaedge 4D running shoe

Press release:

adidas today announces that it expands the 4D range with a new reflective ALPHAEDGE 4D running shoe. The distinctive 3D printed design now features across the sportswear brand’s running, Stella McCartney, Originals and Statement product categories. ADIDAS 4D was first revealed as concept release from FUTURECRAFT – adidas’ innovation incubator – in 2017. The midsole is printed with light and oxygen using Carbon Digital Light Synthesis™ technology pioneered by Silicon Valley based company, Carbon.  The two companies came together to combine years of athlete data with the latest 3D printing technology which allows products to be created at considerable commercial scale. This technology enables huge benefits for both athletes and consumers so they will feel the future. Marco Kormann, Director Platform Innovation, adidas, said: 
“We are proud to have taken a FUTURECRAFT concept and scaled it up significantly across our business within two years. ADIDAS 4D marks a shift in the way we approach the design and creation of our products. With the support of our partner, Carbon, we have shown the possibilities of data-driven-design and digital manufacturing on a global scale. The next iteration of the technology will be to develop how it can be used to produce footwear that is tailored to specific sports, and even individual athletes.” ADIDAS 4D was created as a unique solution that can be precisely tuned to respond to the movement patterns, weight and gait of the user. This means that in the future adidas foresees designing the lattice in a way which suits the movements of a certain sport, as well as personalised based on the data of an individual. We’re just at the beginning, with ADIDAS 4D you will start to feel the future. The latest drop to feature ADIDAS 4D is an update from ALPHAEDGE 4D for FW19. The new reflective design on the upper makes this version of ALPHAEDGE stand out even more, especially for training in low light. The product features are as follows: ADIDAS 4D Carbon Digital Light Synthesis™ technology uses digital light projection, oxygen-permeable optics and programmable liquid resins to print high-performance, durable polymeric products. The technology uses data to translate the needs of a performance category, and eventually individual athlete or consumer, with the required movement, cushioning and stability directly into a midsole. 
Primeknit upper, with FORGEDMESH A super-lightweight upper that features a reflective prime knit used on the full upper, for maximum reflectivity, encases your foot in a seamless sock-like fit providing the support and comfort needed during sharp lateral movements and tight turns. Each thread is individually constructed millimeter by millimeter with FORGEDMESH – a process using TPU-coated yarn, that maximizes performance when stitched at various angles and layers for ultimate strength in motion. Continental outsole The Continental rubber outsole draws on 140 years of Continental tire technology and research – with engineered traction zones to support deeper cuts and faster acceleration, regardless of surface terrain or weather. ALPHAEDGE 4D FW19, will be available globally across adidas.com, the adidas app and select retailers from 11th November 2019.

Introducing new GEL-NIMBUS™ 22 shoe for the most comfortable ride on the market to date

Press release:

[1st Nov – Kobe, Japan] On November 1st, ASICS launches the 22nd iteration of its top-of-the-range, neutral long-distance running shoe, the GEL-NIMBUS™ 22. A trusted training partner for runners’ all of abilities for over 20 years, the shoe incorporates human-centric science and advanced technology to provide long-distance runners with superior cushioning for the most comfortable ride in the series to date.

Designed for neutral runners, the shoe features ASICS’ advanced cushioning technologies – FLYTEFOAM™ Propel and FLYTEFOAM™ – resulting in a lighter, spring like feel.

Named after the Latin term for the Nimbus cloud formation, the ASICS collection has become synonymous for comfort, with each new release featuring new and improved technology to increase the benefits for runners. As the 22nd iteration, the GEL-NIMBUS™ 22 shoe is incorporating a variety of new features including;

· Improved Cushioning: The GEL-NIMBUS™ 22 shoe adds soft and bouncy FLYTEFOAM™ Propel midsole compared to version 21, for improved softness underfoot [1] . The midsole has been reconfigured with soft, bouncy FLYTEFOAM™ Propel midsole material, now positioned closer to the ground. This allows the midsole to compress more when the foot first hits the ground for a more responsive feel. There is also a larger section of GEL™ technology cushioning that wraps all the way around the sole for improved rearfoot impact protection.

· Increased Breathability: The new monofilament mesh upper material is softer and provides more ventilation [2] .

· Enhanced Fit: The shoe geometry becomes slightly wider and higher in the toe box than GEL-NIMBUS™ 21 model, allowing the foot to spread naturally.

ASICS Professional distance runner, Diane Nukuri says: “What I like about GEL-NIMBUS series is they have good cushioning and feel light on my feet. In 2018, I injured my Achilles. As soon as I put on my GEL-NIMBUS, I didn’t feel the pain anymore which allowed me to get back into training and racing – and my Achilles hasn’t bothered me since. The support and cushioning that I get with the GEL-NIMBUS series means I don’t have to worry about my feet being sore.’

 Women’s GEL-NIMBUS™ 22

  Men’s GEL-NIMBUS™ 22

The GEL-NIMBUS™ 22 shoe will be available globally from November 1st at ASICS retail and online stores at 150 USD.

To learn more about ASICS, and the new GEL-NIMBUS ™ 22, please visit: asics.com or go to: ASICS GEL-NIMBUS™22

GEL-NIMBUS™ 22 NEW AND IMPROVED FEATURES:

UPPER:

· New monofilament mesh material allows the upper to maintain durability and provides ventilation and a softer feel.

MIDSOLE:

· FLYTEFOAM™ technology midsole material is lighter and more durable than traditional midsole foams. This is ASICS’ lightweight midsole material giving you a soft, supportive feel.

· FLYTEFOAM™ Propel technology delivers a bouncy, responsive feel underfoot.

· Forefoot and rearfoot GEL™ technology provides increased shock and impact absorption where you need it the most.

OUTSOLE:

· Gender specific GUIDANCE TRUSSTIC™ technology is found under the arch of the shoe. This thermoplastic piece provides stability, reduces weight, and helps extend the life of the shoe. For women this piece provides added support in the direction of forward motion. In the men’s model, this piece provides added support toward the inside of the arch.

· I.G.S™ (IMPACT GUIDANCE SYSTEM) design philosophy links components such as GEL™ technology cushioning, GUIDANCE LINE™ and TRUSSTIC™ technologies together to enhance the foot’s natural gait from foot strike to toe-off.

· Light AHAR™ sponge rubber featured on the outsole to reduce wear and enhances cushioning.

· Super AHAR™ heel plug in areas of heavy wear to extend the life of the shoe by using higher-abrasion rubber.

[2] Evaluation of ventilation in air chamber mechanical testing shows improvements in lateral side and in media side of over 50% in GEL-NIMBUS™ 22 measured against GEL-NIMBUS™ 21. Research conducted by ASICS Institute of Sport Science.

Getting tired just got harder: ASICS new GLIDERIDE™ shoe brings energy savings technology to more runners

Press release:

· ASICS increases the pace in pioneering new energy saving shoes with latest innovation: GLIDERIDE™ – scientifically proven to reduce energy loss1

· The latest introduction to ASICS’ energy saving family follows the sellout debut of the METARIDE™ shoe at the Tokyo marathon earlier this year.

· A leading team of experts put ASICS’ newest technology and theory in running performance to the test in an epic race with no finish line on the Bonneville Salt Flats

[SEPTEMBER 7, 2019 – KOBE, JAPAN] – Saving runners energy: ASICS has today revealed how the eagerly awaited GLIDERIDE™ has successfully adapted the GUIDESOLE™ technology, first introduced in the METARIDE™ concept, and placed it on the feet of more runners in a unique race featuring participants of different abilities from around the world.

AN ENERGY REVOLUTION

The human-centric GUIDESOLE™ technology is an ergonomic precision-shaped curved sole that reduces energy loss. It works by minimizing lower leg movement through the stride – giving a feeling of effortless coasting – to make it easier for runners to keep going for longer.

Increasing the accessibility of the GUIDESOLE™ technology was the inspiration behind the new shoe. Engineered by a team of scientific experts and designers at ASICS Institute of Sport Science (ISS), the development of GLIDERIDE™ was fast-tracked to get the new technology to more runners as quickly as possible. [1]

The result? The new GLIDERIDE™ has taken the category-leading GUIDESOLE™ technology a further step forward. Whilst providing maximum energy saving, it is lighter, with a less extreme curve and more cushioning than the concept shoe – increased comfort.

In tests, GLIDERIDE™ has been scientifically proven to:

· Reduce total energy loss at the ankle joint, where runners expend the most energy

· Improve cushioning for increased comfort

· Reduce weight while maintaining stability to provide both performance and protection

Kenichi Harano, Executive Officer and Senior General Manager at ISS, said: “The positive reception and speed at which runners adopted the new technology spurred us on to develop GLIDERIDE™ in record time. With no compromise on efficiency, it offers a cushier ride that we believe has the potentialto help runners of every level significantly improve performance to go further than they thought possible”.

GET AHEAD WITH THE CURVE

To demonstrate what energy saving really means for runners, ASICS put the theory to the test in a unique race on the Bonneville Salt Flats, Utah on 7 September 2019. The race, designed by an expert team of sports scientists, RUNKEEPER™ data analysts, elite coaches and engineers saw 30 runners of different abilities from around the world put the latest technology and theory in running performance to the test. Participants explored how energy saving technology can assist them in improving performance in the ultimate battle against themselves in a race without a finish line.

“We effectively took our research lab from Kobe to the Salt Flats to understand directly from runners how they can benefit from our energy saving technology in a real-life situation,” commented Harano. “What we learnt proves the importance of optimizing energy and will fuel our next generation technologies beyond footwear.”

Yasuhito Hirota, ASICS President and COO, said: “This latest innovation is a major milestone in achieving our goal to make our energy saving technology available to all runners. In Spring 2020, we will launch the next shoe in the family, EVORIDE™. And it doesn’t finish there.

TECHNOLOGY OVERVIEW

GLIDERIDE™ features the following proprietary technologies:

1. GUIDESOLE™ TECHNOLOGY: curved midsole construction helps minimize movement in the area where most energy is expended; the ankle joint and allows runners to go further, easier and longer. The lower 5mm drop supports the unique rolling movement and feeling of effortless forward motion.

2. FYTEFOAM™ MIDSOLE TECHNOLOGY: durable midsole providing cushioning and maintaining lightweight, with FLYTFOAM PROPEL™ underneath enhancing responsiveness.

3. REARFOOT GEL™ TECHNOLOGY: cushioning under the heel reduces shock when the foot meets the ground.

4. AHAR™ PLUS OUTSOLE: high abrasion rubber on the sole provides durability

5. ENGINEERED MESH UPPER: comfortable upper with reinforcements enhances support and breathability.


[1] The GLIDERIDE™ shoe is scientifically proven to reduce energy loss at the ankle joint. Research conducted by Progressive Sports Ltd based at Loughborough University UK, July 2019 tested against leading shoes in the performance running category.

Speed Up with the Nike Zoom Series

Press Release:

Fast is the focus with these training and racing shoes that are designed to meet the needs of every runner — from world-class marathoners to those who just want to log I-feel-amazing miles on the weekends. With snappy full-length Nike Zoom Air or ultra-responsive Nike ZoomX foam underfoot, each shoe in the Zoom family offers a distinct experience.

Just in time for marathon season, the 2019 Nike Zoom Family continues in a flooded spectrum of neon pink (a hue of the debut neon green, created by Nike, sits directly across the color wheel from pink).

Find out which are right for you…

What is the Nike Zoom Series?

A classification of shoes that feature Nike’s fastest technology underfoot. Those are:

Nike Zoom Air: A cushioning system that uses pressurized air and tightly stretched fibers that are designed to absorb impact and then snap back for fast movement.

Nike ZoomX foam: The lightest, softest and most-responsive Nike foam is designed to maximize speed by delivering greater energy return. 

Both technologies are designed for speed and agility and can help runners experience better responsiveness and control when on the move.

Nike’s all-time best-selling running shoe is back with a big upper refresh: Engineered mesh with added perforations enhances breathability across high-heat areas such as the forefoot and arch. Exposed Flywire cables in the midfoot keep you secure as you pick up speed. The heel collar and tongue are slimmer, which means a more comfortable and conforming fit than before.  The Nike Air Zoom Pegasus 36 maintains its full-length Zoom Air unit (introduced in the Nike Air Zoom Pegasus 35) encased by Cushlon foam in the midsole for a smooth, responsive, cushioned ride you can rely on day after day.

Both versions of the Nike Zoom Fly update feature a transparent lighter upper with a new arch-band lacing system that offers a more adjustable fit. The soft and springy Nike React midsole provides highly responsive cushioning and houses a full-length carbon-fiber plate that delivers a propulsive sensation. The shoe’s offset is designed to minimize Achilles strain and its stack height offers impact protection mile after mile. The result — confirmed by lab tests — is one of the fastest, most-efficient shoes Nike makes.

Elite athlete feedback played a huge role in revamping the already incredibly successful system that increases running economy. Plus, a new material construction, called Vaporweave, on the upper is lighter than Nike Flyknit, breathable and — critically — absorbs less water from sweat or rain, so it stays airy and dry over the course of a marathon. 

Designers added 15 percent more Nike ZoomX foam (capable of providing up to 85 percent energy return) to the Nike ZoomX Vaporfly NEXT% — but the shoe’s weight stays the same as the previous version. They also shaved 3mm from the offset (now 8mm), so you can expect to experience better stability and increased energy conservation before toe-off. (Still embedded within the foam is a full-length curved carbon fiber plate that increases stiffness to provide a sensation of propulsion). A new traction pattern improves forefoot grip so the shoe handles better in wet weather. Also on the outsole are new contoured treads with deep grooves that facilitate smoother movement during turns.

Running the marathon barefoot

Abebe Bikila was a runner from Ethiopia who, running his first marathon won the Rome Olympics marathon on 10 September 1960 running barefoot without running shoes. He was a last minute addition to the Ethiopian team and the teams sponsor did not have enough time to organize running shoes for him and they had only two pairs left, of which neither was able to fitt him. He decided he would then run the race barefoot. At the subsequent Olympics in Tokyo in 1964, he again won the marathon, but did it this time wearing running shoes. He died in 1973 at the age of 41 from complications following a motor vehicle accident. Abebe Bikila is honored and revered in Ethiopia.

Abebe Bikila has a special place in the history of running, especially from those who advocate barefoot running as they hold him up as evidence that a marathon can be run barefoot. There was a fad a while back for doing away with running shoes and running barefoot. This was driven by a lot of websites, forums, books and social media commentary as something that was beneficial and better for runners. Lots of unsubstantiated claims was made for barefoot running, none of which stood up to subsequent scrutiny. This fad last a few years, probably peaking around 2013 with probably 25% of runners trying or dabbling it. The fad quickly dropped off when most who tried it got and injury or realized that it did not live up to all the claims that got made for it. It has now been relegated to the history books, with only a handful of hardcore barefoot runners still doing it.

There has been a lot of research done on barefoot running that those who like to support and advocate barefoot running offer as evidence that barefoot running was better than running in shoes. However, the research never showed that at all and was widely misinterpreted. All the research showed was that barefoot running was different to running in running shoes.

There were claims made that the first sub 2-hr marathon was going to be run barefoot. The folly of that claim is now obvious.

Mizuno Introduces Brand New Floating Run Experience with New XPOP Technology

Press Release:

NORCROSS, Ga., June 12, 2019 /PRNewswire/ — Mizuno, a global leader in running footwear and apparel, debuts a brand new floating run experience with new XPOP™ foam technology in its latest shoe introduction, the Wave Sky WAVEKNIT™ 3. With additional enhancements to the WAVEKNIT™ upper technology, the combination of XPOP and Mizuno Foam Wave provides incredible cushioning and an added floating feel for runners.

“The Wave Sky WAVEKNIT™ 3 is the show piece for Mizuno innovation with our latest technologies, Mizuno Foam Wave and XPOP, delivering the utmost in premium performance comfort,” said Chuck Couch, Mizuno USA Vice President, Running. “We challenged ourselves to enhance the already-comfortable WAVEKNIT™ technology released in 2018 by combining it with XPOP to deliver a shoe that allows natural movement, leverages both comfort and style, and provides the high-performance fit and quality expected in our footwear.”

Designed for the style-conscious, high mileage runners seeking extra comfort underfoot, Mizuno’s Wave Sky WAVEKNIT™ 3 packs a dual-combination of cushioning using Mizuno Foam Wave and XPOP to deliver an all-new floating experience, giving runners an extra bouncy feel from heel to toe.  A WAVEKNIT™ upper construction allows for a stable hold, yet flexible fit that supports natural foot movement through its dynamic sock-like fit. Constructed without reinforcements in the midfoot, the wave vectors seen throughout the Wave Sky WAVEKNIT™ 3 work as hold areas, compensating for the stretch in other areas of the knit to maintain the proper support.

Available in men’s and women’s, the Wave Sky WAVEKNIT™ 3 retails for $160 at local running stores nationwide and MizunoUSA.com. Follow @MizunoRunningNorthAmerica to learn more about Mizuno and hear the latest running product, athlete and partnership updates.

Introducing AI vision technology assisted pronation assisted assessment service at ASICS owned stores

Press Release:

ASICS announces the development of a system that assesses runner pronation type using artificial intelligence (AI) vision technology, as well as the ASICS Institute of Sport Science’s wealth of data and expertise. The system has been added as a new feature to ASICS’ proprietary running form analysis app ASICS RUNNING ANALYZER. It will be available at ASICS owned stores around the world starting early June and will first appear at ASICS HARAJUKU FLAGSHIP in Tokyo, ASICS REGENT STREET FLAGSHIP in London, and ASICS 5th AVENUE FLAGSHIP in New York City. This is the unique system in the world that assesses runner pronation type using artificial intelligence (AI) vision technology within the stores.

Pronation is part of the natural movement of the human body and refers to the way your heel rolls inward for impact distribution upon landing. Understanding your pronation type can help you find an appropriate running shoe.

The new system assesses the runner’s type of pronation simply from a tablet recording of a runner’s running gait from the knee down, which is recorded from behind. The video is automatically uploaded to the cloud and analyzed using AI, which marks the positions of the knee, ankle, and heel and calculates the degree of inward motion when the heel strikes the ground to determine the runner’s type of pronation. At ASICS owned stores, the store staff will recommend the most appropriate ASICS shoe model for the runner using the result of the analysis.

ASICS owned stores currently offer ASICS FOOT ID™ system, which analyzes foot carriage during the running motion to suggest appropriate shoe models. This new system does not require special equipment like sensors and markers, and can determine pronation type even more easily.

It can be used at smaller retail outlets where the ASICS FOOT ID™ previously was not available, as well as at non-retail venues like running events, and will contribute to a more fulfilling sports experience for customers.


〇Classification of pronation type
Overpronation – Your foot lands on outside of heel, then (heel or foot) rolls inward excessively.

Neutral pronation – Your foot lands on outside of the heel, then heel rolls inward moderately.

Underpronation – Your foot lands on outside of the heel, then heel rolls rarely (slightly).



〇About ASICS RUNNING ANALYZER


ASICS RUNNING ANALYZER app analyzes and assesses running form based on a proprietary algorithm developed by the ASICS Institute of Sport Science using data and expertise accumulated by ASICS. The app automatically generates feedback on customer form trends and offers running recommendations based on the analysis results to improve form. The app also has a feature that compares two forms when different shoe models are worn.

ASICS is considering adapting the system in the future so that it can be used not only on tablets but also smartphones for even more convenience, and also offering some of services oriented toward companies.


One of the core strategies of ASICS’ medium-term management plan ASICS Growth Plan (AGP) 2020 is enriching sports lives through the use of digital technology, and the company is focusing on improving the sense of fulfillment customers get from sports by using digital power. ASICS will continue developing cutting edge services using digital technology to offer new value to our customers’ sports experience.
