Footwear Size (Men) - Asics
Enjoy comfort with every stride with the men's GT-1000™ 8 running shoe, featuring FLYTEFOAM® Propel technology for a remarkably lightweight quality that will make you feel as light as a feather. With a jacquard mesh upper to allow the feet to breathe easily, this ASICS running shoe guarantees a comfortable fit, with its strategically located GEL® technology providing high-density shock absorption to extend comfort over the distance. In addition, the EVA foam to the sockliner and lasting provides excellent cushioning and rebound, while keeping the foot stable for enhanced safety throughout. The TRUSSTIC SYSTEM® technology also works to improve stability in the mid-foot area, helping to control torsion with the contoured midsole. The molded AHAR® rubber sponge helps reduce damage from excessive wear, allowing you to run on most terrains with confidence and reassurance. On top of providing comfort and stability, the GT-1000™ 8 running shoe also works to counteract overpronation with its DUOMAX® technology, which imparts essential firmness to the midsole and arch. A standard width makes them accessible to most runners, while signature ASICS branding lend a contemporary finishing touch.
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-1000 8 is made for Neutral and Overpronation.
Normal size arches
There is even distribution from the front of the foot.
HOW YOUR FOOT CONTACTS THE GROUND
The foot lands on outside of the heel, then rolls inward (pronates) to absorb shock and support body weight.
Low arches or flat feet.
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.
I.G.S® (IMPACT GUIDANCE SYSTEM) TECHNOLOGY
