A little from the Culture Team...
This iteration of a staple from ASICS is a bit lighter and has more mobility through the forefoot. The GT-2000 is an industry leader in stability shoes, but has traditionally felt a bit stiff. This version is a lot more fluid through the toe off, while still providing the support and correction the model is known for.
Promoting a lightweight ride, the GT-2000™ 8 running shoe from ASICS is designed to provide appropriate comfort and protection for runners in seeking a performance stability shoe. The GT-2000™ 8 road running shoe features an updated GEL® technology piece and a softer section of foam in the heel for improved comfort and shock absorption. The lightweight FLYTEFOAM® technology midsole offers a soft landing with each stride so you can experience a more energetic stride. The upper features a lightweight engineered mesh that allows better air circulation to keep your skin feeling dry and refreshed. Thanks to the combination of DYNAMIC DUOMAX® technology and TRUSSTIC™ SYSTEM technology in the midfoot, these applications keep your feet stable and supported. When you're looking for a smooth ride, the GT-2000™ 8 road running shoe is the model for you.
REARFOOT AND FOREFOOT GEL® TECHNOLOGY CUSHIONING SYSTEM
Attenuates shock during impact and toe-off phases, and allows movement in multiple planes as the foot transitions through the gait cycle.
FLYTEFOAM® MIDSOLE TECHNOLOGY
Our FlyteFoam® technology provides exceptional bounce back and responsiveness no matter the distance, utilizing organic super fibers to help reduce packing out that traditionally happens with softer, low density foams.
DYNAMIC DUOMAX™ SUPPORT SYSTEM
This evolution of DuoMax® system enhances stability and support, with reduced weight and increased platform support.
TRUSSTIC SYSTEM® TECHNOLOGY
Reduces the weight of the sole unit while retaining the structural integrity of the shoe.
ENGINEERED MESH UPPER
Multi-directional mesh material improves ventilation and stability.
Acronym for ASICS High Abrasion Rubber. Placed in critical areas of the outsole for exceptional durability.
