The GEL-DS TRAINER™ 26 running shoe is the recommended choice for runners covering shorter distances who want to go fast. The shoe helps you achieve those running goals with an improved upper fit that moves seamlessly with the runner's natural motion. Part of our COLOR INJECTION pack, this shoe pays homage to the spirit of the vibrant color palettes often featured on our NOOSA TRI™ shoes.
Updated with a soft and flexible knit upper, this application helps the shoe move more naturally with the runner's foot. Accented with a series of reflective details, this design element is practical for runners who are training in low-light conditions. Added support stems from the updated sockliner, which naturally contours to the foot's shape while improving comfort. Following a more sustainable design approach, this shoe also uses fewer resources to color the sockliner.
The PROPULSION TRUSSTIC™ technology in the outsole mirrors the foot's ligaments, creating a powerful lever to propel your stride. Functional for overpronators, the shoe's DUOMAX™ technology on the medial side of the midsole helps reduce the foot's pronounced inward roll and improves support.
GEL™ technology cushioning improves shock absorption, while the FLYTEFOAM™ midsole material provides a soft and supportive feel from footstrike to toe-off. Formulating a smoother transition throughout your stride, this shoe is also complemented with an AHARPLUS™ heel plug to improve durability and expand its lifespan.
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 GEL-DS TRAINER 26 is made for Overpronation.
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.
