ASICS Creates Thermochromic Print Ad To Test Your Foot Type

Sportswear company ASICS has unveiled a thermochromic print ad that allows you to test what type of feet you have in order to identify the most suitable running shoes for them.

ASICS said in a statement that the campaign was in response to the thousands of runners who don’t use the proper running shoes for their foot type.

A print ad was created by Brazilian agency Neogama, and uses a thermochromic ink that reacts to the body heat to determine the foot type of a person by showing clearly their footprint.

All people need to do is to stand on the magazine, over the determined area, to find out if the foot type is supinator (when the shoes wear themselves out on the outer area of the sole), pronator (wear themselves out on the inner area of the sole) or neutral (when the sole wears itself out uniformly).

The ad can be seen on the cover of latest mag editions of Runners and Women’s Health.
