As a result of the study carried out by ASICS, where they told us that, 80% of runners could be running with an inappropriate shoe, ASICS created the perfect event so that runners, both regulars and beginners, they could find the shoe that best suits their needs and feet.

ASICS, a brand committed to helping running fans, showed us in Madrid y Barcelona (venues chosen for the occasion) how we can find the perfect running shoe.

Attendees were able test the most current models brands such as Gel-Kayano 27 ™, GT2000 ™, Gel-Noosa Tri 12 ™, Novablast ™, Gel-Cumulus 22 ™, Gel-Nimbus 22 ™ and Glideride ™.

In addition to receiving a briefing by the ASICS Brand Trainers, they were also given a tread test on a special treadmill and once analyzed, they were able to test the shoe that best fit them.

A totally personalized experience in which each participant was able to solve their doubts about which is their ideal footwear according to their type of foot and stride. It is very important to avoid injury, know if our foot is supinator, pronator or neutral.
