Intended mainly for runners with a neutral tread, the ASICS Fuji Lite 2 is a perfect shoe for medium distance that will provide us with great security thanks to the Asics Grip sole that works so well in other models of the brand and that are a safe to run on different types of surfaces, anyway, before starting with the complete review let’s go first with the data sheet of the shoe.

One of the great novelties of this shoe is the upper part where it incorporates an engineering mesh that significantly improves breathability, especially during the hottest months of the year.
The upper part of the shoe is made from recycled materials to reduce waste and carbon emissions. Asics, like the vast majority of major brands, are betting lately in a very determined way, for sustainability and manufacturing with recycled materials.
Highlight the tongue of the Fuji Lite 2, since, in addition to providing a little protection to the runner with its padding, it also incorporates a small compartment that allows you to store the laces, thus avoiding that they can be untyed or even hooked with elements of the terrain while we run.
ASICS FUJI LITE 2 REVIEW: MIDSOLE
The new ASICS shoe incorporates the Flytefoam in the midsole, also made with recycled materials, provides good cushioning that will allow you to comfortably run medium and even long distances such as mountain marathons without problems.
The combination of light foam with nanofibers provide greater durability of the cushioning in addition to a lightness of the midsole that guarantees that, the total weight of the shoe, 255 grams for the male version, is located as a light shoe intended for runners who want to run at fast paces without any problem.
ASICS FUJI LITE 2 REVIEW: SOLE
The ASICS FUJI LITE 2 incorporates the sole of the Japanese brand, the Asicsgrip ™, a sole that works perfectly in other models of the brand and that stands out for its versatility since it favors a great grip in different types of terrain.
In addition to the versatility, there is also an optimal durability of the sole made of high density rubber and with studs of rather low prominence and with different orientations in the front area and the heel area with what will help us to grip in that versatility of terrain but that, surely, will penalize us in more technical areas.
Also highlight the proper functioning of the sole in dry terrain such as wet or wet trails where they also develop perfectly.
ASICS FUJI LITE 2 REVIEW: CONCLUSIONS.
This new model of the Japanese brand is mainly intended for those runners with neutral tread, of medium or medium-low weight, who are looking for a multipurpose mountain shoe but also to run on tracks at fast paces, it would be in a second level within the range of ASICS shoes for fast runners, after the FujiTrabuco Sky.
The Flytefoam cushioning and the AsicsGrip sole are a guarantee of being a shoe that will provide us with comfort and a good grip in almost any type of terrain, so the versatility and dynamism would be two great characteristics of these shoes, we will have to check how the new upper behaves and see if it is really as breathable as the brand assures but for that we will have to wait to test it thoroughly, with desire that they reach our hands and here we will tell you everything!
