The ASICS Metaspeed Edge+ is a carbon-plated racing shoe intended for shorter races like 5k, 8k, 10k, and half marathons. The Metaspeed Edge+ has a spring-board to give you a platform to kick off of with every stride and its rocker helps transfer energy through each stride.
The Metaspeed Edge+ is designed for runners who take more strides while running at higher speed (rather than increasing their stride length). If you really want to dial in your race shoe selection, consider this shoe if you tend to make shorter strides while at speed. For this reason.
