SummaryThis is just an overview, not a review. We did not test the Asteria yet.
The Brooks Asteria replaces the ST Racer in Brooks’ stability racing shoe line. The racing shoe that offers ample cushioning and support while still being lightweight enough for uptempo runs. The middle of the shoe can be a bit narrow, but the Asteria is also known for its flexibility, good ventilation, and a secure fit. The shoe performs well at the 5K distance, but can also be used for marathons.
In the midsole of the Brooks Asteria, you will find BioMoGo DNA, which is an update from the midsole of the ST Racer. The midsole adapts to you so you have more personalized cushioning and a responsive feel. Another update are guide rails in the rearfoot. The guide rails allow the feet to move more naturally from heel to toe. Omega Flex Grooves are also located in the midsole to enhance flexibility as well as cushioning. The Segmented Crash Pad also aids in flexibility while and adding stability.
The outsole of the Asteria is made with blown rubber and also features propulsion pods that assist in energy return. In addition, the propulsion pods propel your feet forward while helping with traction. The breathable mesh upper combined with an interior lining keeps your feet moisture free. The sock liner is made with BioMoGo foam for extra cushioning and contoured support. The overlays are 3D printed for a seamless fit that adapts as your feet move.
