ASICS GT-2000 11 GORE-TEX Running Shoes
The GT-2000 11 GORE-TEX shoes are waterproof, versatile stability shoes that are functional for various distances. The underfoot cushioning has been updated from their predecessors for a more comfortable and energetic ride.
Supplying your feet with a waterproof, protective layer, the GT-2000 11 GORE-TEX Shoes are constructed using a GORE-TEX membrane. This compound prevents water, rain and snow from entering the shoes, in order to keep your feet dry and protected in changing weather. Not only this, but the materials are extremely breathable, therefore preventing your feet from overheating, and becoming uncomfortable. An OrthoLite X-30 sock liner provides soft step-in comfort. The upper has a traditional lacing system that locks down the midfoot to reduce in-shoe slippage so you can enjoy distraction-free strides. Completing the look of these shoes, the GT-2000 11’s have reflective details to enhance your visibility when training in low-light conditions.
At least 50% of the shoe’s main upper material is made with recycled content to reduce waste and carbon emissions. Alongside this, the sockliner is produced with a solution dyeing process that reduces water usage by approximately 33%, and carbon emissions by approximately 45% compared to conventional dyeing technology.
FF BLAST Midsole
A development on the GT-2000 10’s, the GT-2000 11’s have a FlyteFoam BLAST technology through the midsole, which enhances underfoot cushioning for comfort and soft landing. This not only supplies your feet with plush cushioning but, will also provide you with lightweight and responsive strides. The FF BLAST compound is 55% lighter than industry standard EVA midsole material and has been made with reinforced fibres that bounce back for optimal cushioning with every step. Embedded within the midsole is a Rearfoot GEL cushioning system, which helps to attenuate shock during footstrike, sparing your joints as you land onto hard, unforgiving surfaces, and promoting a smooth transition through the gait cycle. ASICS contrast their cushioning with LITETRUSS technology. Implemented on the medial side, it helps to control pronation and enhances stability and support without sacrificing lightweight or comfort.
To supply you with durable underfoot traction, the shoes have an AHARPLUS heel plug, and ASICS Lite rubber compound. The AHAR+ compounds will help to improve the durability of the shoes, whilst also ensuring you have a grip on a variety of surfaces. The ASICS LITE rubber is lightweight and stronger than standard outsole rubber, due to the bio-based cellulose nanofibre. Flex grooves also adorn the outsole to provide added traction and allow for natural foot flexion providing an easy, unhindered pace. The flex grooves work with the rubber outsole to provide an abundance of underfoot traction.
