 PRODUCT DESCRIPTION OVERVIEW

Asics GT 2000

 

RELEASE DATE:

  •   January 2013

 

Asics’ classic stability lineage gets revamped with the GT 2000. This update to the GT 2170 features the same stable and responsive ride so many runners enjoyed. Dynamic DuoMax provides moderate support without inhibiting a smooth transition, while the cushioning provides plenty of protection for daily training. Mix in a great fitting upper, and you have a shoe that is worthy of its enduring heritage.

The GT 2000 is a moderate featured, moderate support shoe designed for daily training and high mileage.

The ASICS® GT-2000™ running shoe is engineered to provide superior comfort and a smooth ride. For mild- to- moderate overpronators over any distance. Breathable, seamless lightweight upper. Personal Heel Fit (PHF) creates a personalized fit. ComforDry® sockliner is made from an antibacterial material that not only reduces odor and moisture but also provides additional cushioning. Heel and forefoot GEL® Cushioning Systems take the shock during impact and allows movement in multiple planes as the foot moves through the gait cycle.

Two-layer Solyte® midsole features enhanced cushioning and durability. Dynamic DuoMax® support system is positioned to enhance support and stability. Trusstic System® reduces the weight of the sole unit while retaining the structural integrity of the shoe. Full-length Guidance Line is primarily articulated in the forefoot to improve gait efficiency.

These shoes felt good for mid to long range training runs.  I used them for long runs which the shoe felt solid,  sturdy and my feet felt light.
