External design ASICS GEL-Fit Sana 2

Both original and updated version of the ASICS GEL-Fit Sana are represented  in all kinds of colorways. Such a wide range is not very common, especially within the ASICS shoes, that’s why Fit Sanas are extremely popular among women of all ages and levels, as everyone can find the perfect design for herself.

The upper of the updated shoe is made of FluidFit material, which creates a sparkly chick look and is rather durable, while the first version is covered with soft mesh featuring printed logo and external heel cage of woven bands. This lacing on the outer edge (near the heel) looks like ribbon laced intricately around the back, it’s super cute and feminine.

The lace-up closure is not really important for increased security, as the shoe gives a sock-like fit, it just fulfills the image of the shoe. On the back, there’s a convenient pull tab for easy on and off. On the inside you’ll find soft mesh lining and removable cushioned insole, so you can easily customize your comfort if you need to.
