Heel Drop
8 mm
190 g/6.7 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 1 out of 5 by from Terrible shoe I had previously purchased twice the Gel-DS trainer 25 and loved them. This is a completely different shoe, I find them very uncomfortable and not supportive at all. Why does Asics always make changes with new models, so frustrating!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very happy with results of shoe selector These feel like I'm walking on air. Zero days required to break in - they felt great from the first moment. Really impressed with the sole design and grip - never feel like I'm going to slip, no matter the surface.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Poor Material I had these shoes for less than 2 weeks and a hole already appeared in the toe box, super disappointed. I love the feel of these shoes, but the material is not durable at all.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Versatile! Love these! Colors are pretty, style is sleek. I love that they are versatile, i can use for weight training, cross training, walking and running. So comfy on my terrible, achy feet.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Loved my old pair but not (yet) happy with these I owned a previous version of these shoes and loved them so I bought the updated version recently. I have to say that so far, they are not nearly as comfortable as my old shoes and I'm getting muscle pain in my feet when I wear them running. I'm hoping they will break in over time but I'm not very happy with them initially.
