The Asic GT-2170 running shoe is loved by runners who are loyal to the brand.
Performance runners prefer the Asics brand as much for the stability of its products as for the company’s commitment to improve every new model they release.
The colorful appearance and light weight of the GT-2170 are both selling points for old fans and new users alike.
The GT-2170 is lighter than its predecessor and gets praise from long time wearers who claim that when they run they have the sensation of floating through air. This model includes larger GEL units which add to the feeling of stepping onto a cloud at every landing.
The cushioning makes it a good running sneaker for people with flat feet. This also works well for heavy runners, meaning not just those who weigh a lot but also those who have ‘heavy feet’. The GEL cushion system works to relieve the impact’s effect on the joints.
It has a breathable synthetic/mesh upper increases air flow to the foot, which makes for a cooler and much more comfortable step.
This colorful running sneaker is built so that the forefoot gets ample cushioning, while the heel area, equipped with the Rearfoot GEL Cushioning System, gives the runner safe, snug support.
Overall, this Asics running shoe is stable with enhanced grip, thanks to the DuoMax Support System, which makes the transition from heal strike to toe off smooth and effortless. It also guards against the tendency to overpronate which is found in flat footed runners.
The podiatrist (APMA) approved arch support and well-guided stride is most impressive for runners of average arch height, a feature which will please runners with neutral to severe overpronation. Runners with extra wide feet may, however, want to consider a different shoe as the give in the forefoot area is rather stingy. As a side note, brands like New Balance and Brooksoften offer more toe box space.
Not only do runners love this product, but parents buy them for their kids as well. With colorful good looks and durability, these make the ideal type of footwear for having a blast on the playground. Its mobility and light weight can be attributed to Asic’s Space Trusstic System which provides support so that the shoe’s arch does not break down during wear. In fact, all of the things that make this a great choice for runners make this an ideal athletic shoe for people who enjoy wearing comfortable footwear all day long.
Other features of the GT 2170 running shoe include Asic’s Guidance Line andImpact Guidance System (I.G.S), a design which assists the runner by giving an efficient push to his or her gait.
A double layer of memory foam in the heel area creates a personalized fit for the wearer. Asic’s name for this technology is Personal Heal Fit (P.H.F) and it works well with their other technology, AHAR, which is ASICS High Abrasion Rubber that comprises the outsole material that creates a stable grip.
Comfort is enhanced by dual density Solyte lasting material in both the forefoot and the heel, and the extremely breathable upper-fittedComforDryTM sockliner.
