This comfort-focused running shoe gives improved cushioning and technology, inspired by their previous GT-2000 series with a clear transformation between both models. The FlyteFoam included in the sole of this shoe allows a comfortable ride and the updated blend of materials work to achieve a noticeably softer FlyteFoam feel. The sole includes both FlyteFoam and their specialist gel technology positioned in the heel, combined they make hitting the road more comfortable whilst absorbing shock and impact in your landing.
This specialist stability trainer is targeted at those with clear overpronation in their gait, designed with two technologies both essential to Asics stability trainers: Guidance Trusstic System and Duomax Technology. The Trusstic System is an important feature to the shoe providing stability and controlling torsion whilst running. Also included is the Duomax technology, this system acts like a bowling ball bumper, encouraging the foot to remain in one place, assisting pronation without forcing the foot in any way. A small but effective feature, generally ignored, is the high heel counter in this shoe, perfect for runners who pronate as it holds the heel in position whilst moving.
The traction pattern created in this shoe is something that should not be overlooked, flex grooves in the heel, made from mixed types of high abrasion rubber, allowing softness and durability even on short off-road trails.
Not only is the sole very soft but the upper has been designed to match, to create an all-round comfortable shoe for stability running. The Asics Cumulus 22 has proved very popular, being the brands most sold shoe since introduction therefore making an appearance in this new model by Asics. Both uppers are made with the same mesh, providing this new shoe with added softness and functionality. Asics explains “The new upper material has also been reinforced in key areas for added support, as the foot rolls through the gait cycle.” Clearly an update in technology has allowed this new shoe to be advanced in providing moderate stability and added comfort.
