ASICS' FlyteFoam® Midsole Technology is a major innovation from the ASICS Institute of Sports Science. It features organic "super fibers" that provide adaptive cushioning and exceptional bounce back. The material is engineered to be durable, but also lightweight. In its current form, FlyteFoam® is 55% lighter than the industry standard. While this technology is typically utilized in running shoes, it has been adapted for use in sport-specific shoes, as well.
