Asics GT-2000 3 – “Introducing the lightest GT-2000 ever made”
Lightweight support is the name of the game with third entry in ASICS’ ever-popular GT series, but despite being the lightest GT-2000 ASICS have ever produced, the GT-2000 3 still boasts peerless ride quality and supreme underfoot cushioning.
A new dual-layered FLUIDRIDE midsole offers 20% more bounce back with a 15% reduction in weight on the previous model, while ASICS’ renowned DYNAMIC DUOMAX SYSTEM delivers comfortable, lightweight support so OVERPRONATORS can enjoy miles and miles of well-guided performance.
Much of the shoe’s weight saving can be attributed to a revised Heel Clutching System, which combines with a breathable mesh upper to provide step-in comfort and a secure fit you can always rely on.
Seamless design through the upper also means friction and foot irritation are a thing of the past, while independently placed eyelets disperse lace tension for enhanced comfort and a fully-customizable fitting environment. The inclusion of a ComforDRY sockliner also boosts interior cushioning and counteracts micro-bacterial build up, which helps reduce odour and promotes a cooler, drier, healthier inner.
Other benefits include an updated Guidance Line® and Guidance Trusstic System®, which complement each other superbly to enhance the wearer’s running gait, improve torsional rigidity, and encourage smoother transitions from heel-to-toe. Unsurprisingly, the GT-2000 3 still retains ASICS’ signature GEL® Cushioning at the heel and forefoot for maximum shock absorption throughout the gait cycle, while a highly durable rubber outsole ensures exceptional underfoot flexibility.
And as endorsements go, a Seal of Acceptance from the AMERICAN PODIATIRC MEDICAL ASSOCIATION is pretty impressive.
