Designed to deliver a different type of running experience, the ASICS 33-DFA is the latest entry in ASICS’ celebrated range of NATURAL running shoes and offers the lowest heel-to-toe offset in the entire 33 series (4mm) for greater freedom and a more natural underfoot feel.
Named after the number of joints in the human foot and the DEEP FLUID AXIS built into the shoe, the 33-DFA allows your feet to rider closer to the ground than ever before for a “gear-free feeling” that encourages you to “run your way”. ASICS’ revolutionaryDEEP FLUID AXIS also allows the foot rotate more naturally at the ankle and subtalar joints for greater freedom of movement and reduced pronation support.
An ultralight SoLyte midsole also ensures durable and responsive cushioning whilst delivering enough protection to make the 33-DFA suitable for everyday use if you so choose. ASICS have also elected to replace their patented GEL Cushioning withAmpliFoam – a new midsole material which runs the full length of the shoe for consistent cushioning rather than the limited "spot cushioning" associated with GEL inserts.
The shoe’s anatomically correct FLEX GROOVES have also been designed to align with the joints of your feet for an adaptive and responsive ride that mirrors natural foot motion. This innovation allows the shoe to recognize, adapt, and respond to every positional change from heelstrike to toe-off for better biomechanics, smoother transitions, and enhanced gait efficiency.
Other highlights include a removable EVA Sockliner which moulds to the contours of your feet for a customized fit that’s snug and supportive – a feeling all runners yearn for – and an AHAR blown rubber outsole for outstanding durability and grip. A seamless mesh and synthetic upper also holds the foot securely in place throughout the gait cycle whilst allowing your toes to spread out as you move for greater comfort.
