ASICS has always been a company focused on cutting-edge innovation, and for 2020, the expansion of the brand’s athletically-inclined footwear has taken center stage. Luckily, the arrival of COVID-19 isn’t doing much to put a damper on the outfit’s reveal of its advanced new footwear line.

The newest unveiling of the company’s refined sneaker platform, the Meta Series, arrives after the disappointing cancellation of the ASICS Innovation Summit, which was slated to take place in Tokyo. However, due to the outbreak, the company has decided to reveal the line’s tri-silhouette capsule through a virtual reality platform, allowing journalists to take part in the release via the Oculus Quest headset. The collection is comprised of the METARACER, a transcendental runner outfitted with energy-saving GUIDESOLE technology and a stabilizing carbon plate; the METASPRINT, a spikeless track shoe that provides more traction and power transfer via a unique honeycomb design; and the METARISE, a volleyball variant that provides players with an extra three-percent lift, allowing them to make higher jumps. As the most advanced performance series that ASICS has ever released, the Meta line promises to change the game for avid athletes. Head to the company’s website for more info.
