The Asics 33-FA is a unique and innovate shoe inspired by the human foot. The shoe features soft cushioning, flexible materials all in a comfortable package. Running in the Asics 33-FA feels natural. The shoe is constructed using FluidAxis technology and other similar quality material. What we're left with is a shoe that's aesthetically pleasing and durable. The color options are vast, providing the option to wear the shoe out casually.
The AHAR+ rubber featured in the outsole covers nearly the whole sole of the shoe. It's intended to increase the shoe's longevity. The heel area of the Asics 33-FA features an x-shaped area composed of black foam. This design helps to enhance responsiveness.
The full-length Aplifoam material is paired with Solyte cushioning to provide ample cushioning. The midsole also features an interior ComforDry Sockliner.
The liner material has anti-microbial properties and helps to reduce the stench often produced by lingering sweat. The liner material also provides an added layer of cushioning and helps to wick away moisture from sweaty feet.
The interior is seamless which reduces the potential for blister formation. The heel of the shoe is not angled like it is in other models. The 4mm drop provides a close to the ground running experience and promotes a more natural footstrike.
There is also a toe bumper that offers protection for the wearer. The overlay material is thin and provides a good amount of flexion. The foot fits securely in the 33-FA with no resulting uncomfortable pressure points. The wide toe box provides another facet of comfort for the wearer.
The ComforDry Sockliner also provides an extra layer of cushioning while wicking away moisture and helping to create a healthy, cool environment inside the shoe.
The lacing system ensures the shoe is securely attached to the foot but also offers the ability to adjust the fit. The FluidAxis outsole technology provides good flexibility. The toe box is wide enough to allow room to breathe.
The AHAR+ rubber on the outsole is placed in areas susceptible to wear. In addition, the mesh upper features high-quality materials that are meant to last.
The upper is strong enough to handle a variety of conditions and won't tear even if you plan on running fast and far.
