Heel Drop
8 mm
241 g/8.5 oz
Neutral, Stability

Designed For Neutral Overpronation



  • Foot Type

    Normal size arches
  • Push Off

    There is even distribution from the front of the foot.
  • Considered Injuries

    Less likely due to effective shock absorption, but neutral runners are not immune to injury.
  • 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.


  • Foot Type

    Low arches or flat feet
  • Push Off

    Big toe and second toe do majority of the work.
  • Considered Injuries

    Shin splints, plantar fasciitis, bunions, heel spurs.
  • How your foot contacts the ground

    The foot lands on outside of heel, then rolls inward (pronates) excessively, transferring weight to inner edge instead of ball of the foot.
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. Functional for overpronators, the shoe's DUOMAX® technology on the midsole's medial side 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. The PROPULSION TRUSSTIC™ technology in the outsole mirrors the foot's ligaments, creating a powerful lever to propel your stride. Formulating a smoother transition throughout your stride, this shoe is also complemented with an AHARPLUS™ heel plug to improve durability and expand its lifespan.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My go-to everyday trainer. Great everyday trainer. Simple, stable, versatile and a good fit . Been using this shoe since the gel ds trainer 24's and don't even consider another shoe.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Gel ds 26 After wearing the shoes two times, the sole started to peel off. My son hasn’t been able to wear them again since.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Light and stable. Great for my high schooler. Great interval training shoe. Light and stable, which works with my sons flat feet. Disclaimer....I replaced the insole with the Superfeet Comfort Max.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Durability This is my 6th pair of the Gel DS Trainer. These shoes are significantly less durable than previous models (24 and 25). After only a few weeks of training, the grip has worn through in a few places and the upper is also breaking down. My previous pairs lasted many miles more.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Run fast! Super light, but surprisingly supportive. However, would have appreciated a smidge more cushion in the forefoot.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice shoe Very comfortable trainer. I did go a 1/2 size up and they are little big but I prefer something slightly bigger vs snug. The color is bold but fun.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Interesting So, trying to get away from super high stack shoes with a wobbly heel counter. You have to be on point in these shoes, good form, right surface. I'm about 5 pounds over my running weight and I can feel it in this shoe. I could see where this would make for a good tempo or fartlek shoe, but not a steady level 2-3 pace. The foam in the toe box beats you up a bit. Quick specs..runs long, but narrow, so you might want to stick to your size. The grid pattern on the tread picks up little pebbles, just a little annoying. I'm just going to save this for my interval shoe. The lack of padding in the midsole makes life hard when your not on your A game. I would not use this for a racer. I'm not going over 6 mi in this shoe, too harsh.
