On September 27th , ASICS launches the 27th iteration of one of its favourite shoes, the GT-2000 8. A trusted training partner for runners’ abilities for nearly 30 years, this original stablity shoe from ASICS continues to deliver on its promise of performance and protection.
Through ASICS’ unique approach to human-centric design, research in advanced technological, and dedication to excellence, every iteration of the GT-2000 8 series has improved on the previous editions, whilst always maintaining its signature responsive and stable ride.
The latest edition does just this with improved sole material and construction that has the cushioning for a smooth and soft landing. Slightly lighter than its predecessor to further improve responsiveness, the new GT-2000 has not lost its stability with the DYNAMIC DUOMAX technology a key feature.
ASICS Professional American middle distance runner, Johnny Gregorek says: “The GT-2000 has been my go-to training shoe since high school and is still the shoe I put on for my morning run. Versatile but lightweight enough to run fast if I need to. The GT-2000 also provides enough cushion and support to reduce load on my foot and is so durable that I’m able to get many miles of training.’
