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.

GEL-EXCITE 8

Men's Running Shoes

Product Details

The GEL-EXCITE™ 8 running shoe is designed to provide excellent comfort, whether you're running five miles or running errands around town. A newly updated silhouette and engineered mesh upper gives this shoe a younger and faster look.

The last is paired with a molded heel section that keeps your foot more centered on the shoe's platform—offering an even better fit than the previous shoe in the series. Designed to provide excellent durability, the upper is met with no-sew overlays that increase support while reducing the overall weight. Following a more sustainable design approach, this shoe also uses fewer resources to color the sockliner.

This style offers improved comfort, featuring rearfoot GEL™ technology cushioning, an AMPLIFOAM™ midsole, and an ORTHOLITE™ sockliner to create a soft and comfortable feeling underfoot. Equipped with a GUIDANCE LINE™ technology, this technology helps the foot experience a more natural and consistent stride.

Lastly, an injection rubber outsole adds lightness and improves durability, while the strategically placed flex grooves are more flexible when you're running or wearing casually throughout the day.



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-EXCITE 8 is made for Neutral.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Jacek from Not durable at all [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] My original review was recommending these however, I can't edit it. Got a hole up front on top of the shoe after a couple of months of very light usage. The layer of material covering the top of the shoe is quite thin and not durable at all.
