ASICS’s innovative distance trainer gets better! Keeping most of the midsole and outsole the same, the GlideRide 2 takes a page out of the Nimbus line and incorporates gender specific midsole densities (slightly softer for the ladies). The biggest changes lie in the upper. Using more 3D printed overlays rather than plastic within the mesh, the GlideRide 2 fits seamlessly and comfortably across most foot shapes. Slightly lighter than its predecessor, the GlideRide 2 remains a fantastic options for anyone seeking a cushioned, inherently stable and overall fun ride!
