Pronation is part of the natural movement of the human body and refers to the way your foot rolls inward for impact distribution upon landing. Understanding your pronation type can help you find a comfortable running shoe. The GT-2000 8 is made for Overpronation.
SURFACE – Road HEEL DROP – 10 mm WEIGHT – 286 g/10.1 oz SUPPORT – Stability CUSHION – Extra
FOOT TYPE – Low arches or flat feet
PUSH OFF – Big toe and second toe do majority of the work.
HOW YOUR FOOT CONTACTS THE GROUND – The foot lands on outside of heel, then rolls inward (pronates) excessively, transferring weight to inner edge instead of ball of the foot.
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.
AHAR® OUTSOLE – Acronym for ASICS High Abrasion Rubber. Placed in critical areas of the outsole for exceptional durability.
