From running to training, ASICS’ fuzeX TR shoe was designed to provide a versatile, all-in-one premium workout experience. Combining ASICS’ knowledge of running footwear with the need for a training shoe for the modern fitness explorer, the fuzeX TR allows for the perfect hybrid workout, where both strengthening and cardio moves are involved. To tell this unique story of this multi-functional training shoe, we created the Remix Your Workout challenge, inviting eight prominent social media influencers to participate in three different workouts in one week, ultimately showing the versatility of the fuzeX TR sneaker.
