The ASICS GT-1000: The gateway to more stability
The history of the ASICS GT-1000 does not necessarily follow a straight line. For ASICS it began, still under the name Onitsuka Tiger, on the basketball court. That's where the first sneakers with the long-famous Tiger Stripes were found. The street and running came later - but have long since shaped the image of the brand. In just a few decades, five letters plus tiger stripes have become synonymous with high-tech running shoes. And so today the name ASICS almost inevitably paints images of optimally cushioned runners on our inner canvas.
And rightly so. After all, the brand not only developed the innovative Gel cushioning, above all, it has created a running shoe portfolio whose range is hard to beat. There is something for everyone. Even for overpronators. ASICS developed its GT series for them. Runners that compensate for inward bending with additional stabilisation. This, in turn, should not only be reserved for passionate runners.
When in doubt, beginners also need a runner that gives them the necessary stability - and that's exactly what the ASICS GT-1000 was developed for. Instead of foregoing technical innovations like Gel, FlyteFoam or DuoMax, the premium running shoe combines them with the essence and succeeds with its concept. Over the years, the brand has evolved its GT-1000 concept, adapting the upper and cushioning and getting closer to the optimum of a stability runner step by step.
ASICS GT-1000 - Stability Shoe with Gel Cushioning
Overpronators tend to bend their feet inwards when running. This can lead to problems in the long run. Unless you use a runner that compensates for overpronation. ASICS designed the GT-1000 to help you find the right balance. The brand's effective DuoMax protection system is responsible for this. Additional comfort is provided by the Gel technology and FlyteFoam damping. At the same time, this combination ensures efficient energy recovery.
The toebox of the ASICS GT-1000 is now wider so that you can find enough space even with wider feet. In addition, the current version has a revised mesh upper, which also increases comfort. As does the comfortable Ortholite insole. If you like to run in all weather conditions, the ASICS GT-1000, available online at Keller Sports, is also available in a GT version with a GORE-TEX membrane.
The advantages of the ASICS GT-1000
Gel is one of ASICS' most important technologies, but it is not the only cushioning in the GT-1000. In addition, there is the necessary support and a new upper material. The following technologies make your run more comfortable:
- Reworked mesh upper: Support without constriction or rubbing. It is the great art of upper production. That's why the brand revises the upper of its ASICS GT-1000 from generation to generation and now presents a mesh-like construction that adapts to the shape of your foot. It is also pleasantly soft and gives you the necessary support around the midfoot. The fit is a little tighter at the beginning. However, thanks to its adaptability, the upper soon fits comfortably around your foot. Strategically placed reinforcements on the upper of the running shoe provide additional support.
- DuoMax against overpronation: ASICS has made the foam on the medial side of the midsole denser in the GT-1000. On the one hand, this concept increases stability, and on the other, it counteracts the tendency of your foot to rotate inwards, i.e. overpronation. ASICS' DuoMax technology does not give way and therefore provides stability around the cushioning at all times.
- Cushioning and energy recovery thanks to Gel and FlyteFoam: The ASICS GT-1000 is not designed for high-tech. However, it does not want to do without its Gel and FlyteFoam technology. After all, it absorbs shocks effectively and then returns them in the form of energy to speed up your stride.
- AHAR outsole for intensive grip: ASICS has developed its ASICS High Abrasion Rubber - AHAR for short - for its runners. As a carbon rubber, it provides grip on both wet and dry surfaces. At the same time, it is robust and durable.
Relaxed runs with the ASICS GT-1000
The ASICS GT-1000 leaves the long haul to others. The runner wants to make it easier for you to get started in running. For overpronators who have resolved to run more from now on. For overpronators who are increasingly aiming for the after-work or weekend run. There, the ASICS GT-1000 provides women and men with stability that comes into its own best on the road and over distances between five and ten kilometres.
