The GT-2000™ 8 road running shoe features an updated GEL® technology piece and a softer section of foam in the heel for improved comfort and shock absorption. The lightweight FLYTEFOAM® technology midsole offers a soft landing with each stride, so you can experience a more energetic stride. The upper features a lightweight engineered mesh that allows better air circulation to keep your skin feeling dry and refreshed. Thanks to the combination of DYNAMIC DUOMAX® technology and TRUSSTIC SYSTEM® technology in the midfoot, these applications keep your feet stable and supported. When you're looking for a smooth ride, the GT-2000™ 8 road running shoe is the model for you.
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-2000 8 is made for Overpronation.
Low arches or flat feet.
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.
Rearfoot and Forefoot GEL® Technology Cushioning System
Attenuates shock during impact and toe-off phases, and allows movement in multiple planes as the foot transitions through the gait cycle.
FlyteFoam® Midsole Technology
Our FlyteFoam® technology provides exceptional bounce back and responsiveness no matter the distance, utilizing organic super fibers to help reduce packing out that traditionally happens with softer, low density foams.
Dynamic DuoMax™ Support System
This evolution of DuoMax® system enhances stability and support, with reduced weight and increased platform support.
Trusstic System® technology
Reduces the weight of the sole unit while retaining the structural integrity of the shoe.
Engineered Mesh Upper
Multi-directional mesh material improves ventilation and stability.

Comfy!!I never wear athletic shoes or shoes at all. Living in Houston allows me to be a sandal girl all year round. I was recently diagnosed with arthritis of the hip so my doc said to get athletic shoes. ASICS were on his recommended list. I’ve only been wearing them half a day, but I must say the cushioning is wonderful! I love the style, fit and comfort!

TOO SMALL!These shoes seem very supportive and they FINALLY have some decent color selections, which is why I am giving them three stars. However, I have always worn the same size in Asics shoes. My big toe is almost at the end and my other toes are curled up, too small and seemingly a little narrow. Odd since sometimes I honestly wear a 2A in Ascis and I ordered a B. I am going to try a half size up, and I really hope it will fit me.
