Building off the success of the previous model, the GEL-FORTITUDE 8 (2E) offers an improved fit made with a wider space in the forefoot to comfortably accommodate different foot sizes. A specially engineered, seamless mesh upper offers ventilation and breathability while reducing the chance of blisters caused by traditional seams that rub and irritate the skin.
Neutral pronation runners will appreciate the 10mm heel drop and plush instep, whether you’re just starting out as a casual low mileage runner, or you’ve already tackled long distances in a trusted ASICS shoe. The GEL-FORTITUDE lives up to its name with performance technology designed to support, cushion, respond and protect each step you take.
