Asics revealed their latest running shoe – the GEL Quantum 360 last night here in NYC and I was excited to be invited to the exclusive event.
We had a first look at the shoe and a brief run down about the ideas and science behind the creation of the shoe. Say hello to the official 2015 TCS NYC Marathon shoe! Check out some more details and specifics below!
Dubbed one of their most innovative shoes ever – the Gel Quantum 360 offers a full 360 degree experience of their Gel technology. The full length trusstic system will be sure to deliver that springy ride needed for every workout.
