Heel Drop
10 mm
230 g/8.1 oz
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.

    The pressure is on smaller toes on outside of foot.
  • Considered Injuries

    Plantar fasciitis, shin splints, ankle strain.
  • 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.


  • 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.

    Engineered to maintain durability at softer densities, providing better flexibility, comfort, and platform adaptability ideal for natural running.
  • GEL® Technology
    Cushioning provides excellent shock absorption

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Total let down I was so excited to buy these as replacements to my gel-excite 7 that were worn out in the heels. I walk 3-5 every day so it is important to find comfortable shoes to support my feet. I put these on and right away noticed that they were not as roomy in the toe box but was something I could live with. I began using and after just a couple of uses at a couple of miles each i noticed i was having heel pain on just one foot. I started alrernating shoes to see if it was just due to making the switch to new shoes. Unfortunately it was not so i looked in the one shoe snd figured out the problem. The insole curves up the back of the shoe slightly to give more heel support but for me it is causing pain. It only happens in one shoe because my other foot is slightly smaller. Now i have a brand new pair of shoes that are just collecting dust unless i can figure out a fix for the one insole.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfection Each pair of ASICS I order exceeds my expectations. These are light weight and perfectly conform to my foot. I wear a size 12 and ASICS is the best fit of any brands.
