The standard (medium) width for women is B, while the standard width for men is D. Shoe boxes and labels will only identify widths other than standard. Within the shoes, wide and narrow widths are identified on the label, underneath the tongue — ie. T005N(2E).

When is additional width needed?
Visible stretching or bulging on the outsides of forefoot materials is a good indicator that additional width may be needed. These sizes are available in many of our Running and Training shoes. In some cases, men can wear women’s styles to achieve a narrow fit and women can wear men’s to get a wide. If this is needed, please use the references above to determine comparable size lengths. Please note that the differences of width between narrow, standard, wide, and extra wide are usually only a couple millimeters and are proportional to the size of the shoe. Most additional width will be found in the forefoot.

Product Details

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.

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.



Width: D standard - STANDARD

For men the standard shoe width is D, going up to a wide fitting 2E and the widest a 4E. In New Zealand the most common shoe width size* for men is a 2E. Find out more about widths.

pronation

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 Underpronation, and Neutral.

Severe Over

Underpronation

Foot Type

High arches

PUSH OFF

The pressure is on smaller toes on outside of foot.

HOW YOUR FOOT CONTACTS THE GROUND

The outer side of the heel hits the ground at an increased angle with little or no normal pronation, causing a large transmission of shock through the lower leg.

Neutral

Foot Type

Normal size arches

PUSH OFF

There is even distribution from the front of the foot.

HOW YOUR FOOT CONTACTS THE GROUND

The foot lands on the outside of the heel, then rolls inward (pronates) to absorb shock and support body weight.

Product Features

Ahar Plus Outsole

Strategically positioned in critical areas of the outsole, this exceptionally durable compound is 50% more durable than standard ASICS High Abrasion Rubber.

Duomax Support System

A dual-density midsole system positioned to enhance support and stability.

Flytefoam Technology

Our lightest midsole ever. Its organic fibres bounce back into its original shape in the space of each stride to provide perfect cushioning from the start of your run to the finish.

Gel - Rearfoot

Reduces impact during heel strike and allows for a smooth transititon. Shape of units designed for special function under the heel of the foot.

Propulsion Trusstic Technology

Mimics connective tissue in the foot by creating tension as foot enters propulsion stage.

Engineered Knit Upper

Multi-directional knit material improves ventilation and stability.
