Asics’ training shoe options are plentiful, but it’s the Weldon X that combines many of the brand’s latest advancements including a Flex Mesh upper and FuzeGel cushioning. There’s also the AHAR (Asics High-Abrasion Rubber) Plus outsole, which the brand says provides 50 percent more wear than its standard AHAR material.
