Product Details

Enjoy comfort with every stride with the men's GT-1000™ 8 running shoe, featuring FLYTEFOAM® Propel technology for a remarkably lightweight quality that will make you feel as light as a feather. With a jacquard mesh upper to allow the feet to breathe easily, this ASICS running shoe guarantees a comfortable fit, with its strategically located GEL® technology providing high-density shock absorption to extend comfort over the distance. In addition, the EVA foam to the sockliner and lasting provides excellent cushioning and rebound, while keeping the foot stable for enhanced safety throughout. The TRUSSTIC SYSTEM® technology also works to improve stability in the mid-foot area, helping to control torsion with the contoured midsole. The molded AHAR® rubber sponge helps reduce damage from excessive wear, allowing you to run on most terrains with confidence and reassurance. On top of providing comfort and stability, the GT-1000™ 8 running shoe also works to counteract overpronation with its DUOMAX® technology, which imparts essential firmness to the midsole and arch. A standard width makes them accessible to most runners, while signature ASICS branding lend a contemporary finishing touch.

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 GT-1000 8 is made for Neutral and Overpronation.

Neutral

  • Foot Type

    Normal size arches
  • Push Off

    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.

Overpronation

  • Foot Type

    Low arches or flat feet.
  • Push Off

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

Rated 5 out of 5 by from C'mon ASICS!! Why no more wide widths? This is an example of "if it isn't broke, I'll fix it anyway". I bought a pair of GT-1000s size 11- 4E three years ago and I felt then as I do now, it is by far the absolute most comfortable, best fitting shoe for a person like me - wide foot in need of good arch support. Then, some designer felt the need to change it. The Gel-Kayano is good, comfortable and wide. But, I don't get the same level of arch support I do with the GT-1000. I have recommended the Gel-Kayano to friends, but only because the GT-1000 was no longer made in a wide width. Please FIX this mistake!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love these sneakers! I have been running and working out with the Brooks Beast for years and this sneaker is hands down 100 times better. No break-in period required! Only complaint is that the shoelaces are too short since I wear custom orthotics.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from GT-1000 8's are smaller than previous versions. The old versions of the GT-1000's fit like a glove. I wear a size 16. These were a bit smaller and tighter. I need to send them back.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Runs small and narrow I've been buying the gt1000 for years now. Have absolutely loved them. Ordered these in the same size and width I have what's ordered them. They show up, and they are smaller cut length wise, and even more narrow than before. I can't return them bc I already threw the box away. They change the cut, Being cheap trying to reduce materials being used. Will not order asics ever again. Very disappointed

Rated 1 out of 5 by from A bit uncomfortable Not very comfortable. Has an awkward sole of the shoe in the toe box and where the toes are. The heel support is a bit high, stiff and narrow.
