The GEL-1090™ running shoe from 2003 has been re-engineered with a modern lens, while retaining its signature design details. Inspired by the lines of a motorcycle, this shoe is meant to emphasize the notion of speed. Reissued with a simplified upper construction, this retro running shoe preserves its influential features, like the tiger claw marks on the toe overlays and heel counter. Similar to the motion of a waving checkered flag, sweeping lines appear along the midsole, while the heel is layered with GEL® cushioning to increase comfort. Reimagining the heritage of the GT-1000™ series, the GEL-1090™ sneaker returns with its original performance running aesthetic, while revamping its functionality with improved comfort and cushioning.
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-1090 is made for Neutral.
Normal size arches
There is even distribution from the front of the foot.
How your foot contacts the ground
The foot lands on outside of the heel, then rolls inward (pronates) to absorb shock and support body weight.
