ASICS Quantum 360 shoes


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. ASICS GEL-Quantum 360 is made for Under, Neutral.

How Your Foot Contacts the Ground:

outer side of the heel hits the ground at an increased angle with little or no normal pronation, causing a large transmission of shock through the lower leg

Push Off:

pressure on smaller toes on outside of foot

Foot Type:

high arches

How Your Foot Contacts the Ground:

foot lands on outside of the heel, then rolls inward (pronates) to absorb shock and support body weight

Push Off:

even distribution from the front of the foot

Foot Type:

normal-size arches

                  The technology in this product

There are a few things about this shoe that make it super comfortable: 360 degrees of gel make it Asics’ most cushioned shoe ever. That gel is topped by a cushioned sockliner, giving the shoe an ultra plush feel when you first put it on. Additionally, it has a slightly narrow heel which makes you feel locked in.

Although technically a neutral shoe, the Quantum offers a really stable ride thanks to a full-length trusstic system; it was certainly enough support for my overpronated foot, but wouldn’t be overwhelmingly stiff for a true neutral runner.

The shoe features a seamless upper – ‘asymetrical fluid fit,’ they call it. Basically it offers a sock-like fit that is snug and secure where it needs to be (midfoot) and open where it needs to be (toe box).

If you’re looking for a shoe to mix into your everyday lineup with some extra cushion – perhaps a shoe for the day after a hard workout – the Quantum fits the bill.
