Review: ASICS fuzeX™ (Spring 2016)

ASICS is a Japanese athletic equipment company which manufacturers a wide range of footwear and also sports equipments. For runners, they are well known for their many running range.Adding to the new range, ASICS has introduced the fuzeX™ and has brought in the new fuzeX™ shoes to the Malaysian market recently.
Asics fuzeX™ is a daily neutral trainer for runners. The fuzeX™ footwear is featuring  fuzeGEL,  a  new  lightweight  midsole developed  by  ASICS  Institute  of  Sport  Science1 in  Kobe,  Japan. It combines lightness and protection with a sleek three-dimensional curved design.

My first impression of fuzeX™:
Unboxing the ASICS fuzeX™ for the first time, I was pleased by the attractive colour, Turquoise/Sharp Green/Ink.
When I put the fuzeX™ on, they're quite light and comfortable. I noticed fuzeX™ toe box is narrower than usual running shoes and if you have wide feet, you might want to consider a half size larger.
The Verdit:
Running in the FuzeX™ requires some break in time. I would recommend doing some short run and gradually increasing it. For my break in period, I walked around the park for 2km before I gave them a try in a slow short 5km run. Till date, I've accumulated over 60km in this shoes ranging from 5km to 16km. I ran in it on different terrain ranging from asphalt surface, pavements and on the beach. The fuzeX™ gives quite good grip on wet surfaces.

I found the shoe to be responsive and have not experience any foot pain nor blisters. I feel comfortable wearing them for my longer runs. The fuzeX™ has a snug feet feel to it and does not feel tight on the heels. It is snug enough to stop small stones and sand from getting inside the shoe while I was running at Desaru beach. The shoe has moderate support, cushioning was there and feels responsive throughout my runs.

I would recommend this shoe to those who are looking for comfort shoes for their runs. The fuzeX™ is currently available in stores for RM459 and you can grab it at your nearest ASICS outlets.
