- This running shoe has a reasonable price compared to other running shoes with more or less the same features and technologies.
Arch Support and Pronation Control
- The arch support of the Asics GT 2000 is for moderate overpronators.
- Moderate overpronation means that the heel’s outer part strikes the ground and then, followed by the foot, slightly rolls inward to absorb the shock, which helps support the body.
- Every person has different needs; that is why you must know your specific needs first, such as the arch and pronation types, before deciding which shoe to pick.
- The terrain for Asics GT 2000 is used in terrains such as track, road, and gravel.
- You will surely be able to complete your run in these following terrains because of the shoe’s various features.
- A carbon rubber material is present in the shoe’s outer sole to provide durability, especially on wet surfaces.
- But you should remember that this shoe may not be suitable for trail running because trails need stronger features to survive.
- During normal training, the Asics GT 2000 is perfect to use.
- As a matter of fact, it will help you improve your performance to become a better runner.
- This shoe is not that lightweight, so it cannot do speed work.
- If you want to improve your speed work, you may opt for much lighter running shoes.
- The Asics GT 2000 12 is High Abrasion Rubber (AHAR).
- When it comes to the Asics GT 2000, it is durable, but it also does not easily break down.

- Other than that, other features are well distributed in the shoe’s different parts.
Fit and Sizing
- The Asics GT 2000 base fit is for the medium-sized heel, mid-foot, and forefoot feet.
- These features mean that the shoe has enough space to accommodate medium-sized feet.
- But it is more advantageous to have a wider forefoot because this offers better comfort, and you can also move your feet around.
- On the other hand, the sizing is normal, just like most running shoes today. The lighter shoes tend to have smaller sizes.
- The Asics GT 2000 weighs approximately 312 grams for men and 261 grams for women.
- This weight is not heavy; it is considered light compared to other Stability running shoes.

- With enough durability, you will not have to worry about your shoes collapsing anytime, which could even stop your running momentum.
- Aside from the AHAR, the outer sole also has the DuraSponge, placed specifically in the forefoot to provide flexibility and cushioning.
- This feature is made from an AHAR compound.
- This is very helpful in providing effective shock absorption during impact.
- The Asics GT 2000 is made from Solyte, an ultra-light midsole, which is very effective in providing responsive and durable cushioning.
- Responsive cushioning implies you can rely on it, especially during impact landing.
- It effectively absorbs the shock; thus, you will fully protect your feet.
- Also, it has to be durable so that the shock absorption will last long.
- With the presence of the FluidRide, it provides responsive cushioning, which is also responsible for increasing the shoe’s durability and reducing its weight.
- This shoe is specifically for people who overpronate.
- The advantage of the Asics GT 2000 is that it has the Dynamic DuoMax to reduce overpronation.
- It is done by controlling the foot movement.
- Through this, you will be able to experience a smoother heel-to-toe transition.
- Moreover, the Impact Guidance System design offers a smooth heel-to-toe and balanced transition.
- For additional torsional rigidity, which is the shoe’s resistance to twisting forces, the Guidance Trusstic System’s presence helps a lot.
- And lastly, the Guidance Line starts from the heel to the forefoot.
- This vertical flex groove is important for the improvement of gait efficiency.
- The upper of the Asics GT 2000 is made up of comprised of an open mesh.
- The open mesh keeps the feet cool and dry for the whole duration of the run.
- This adds to the comfort that you can feel from this shoe.
- The Reinforced Vamp also increases the shoe’s durability by adding a seamless mesh overlay.
- Likewise, the Discrete Eyelets help eliminate lace tension and improve this shoe’s comfort.
- The upper of this running shoe also has an anti-bacterial material called the ComforDry Sockliner, which reduces the moisture and odor that builds up inside the shoe and adds cushioning.
- This stability shoe also uses a Personal Heel Fit to provide a customized fit, using two-layer memory foam lining.
- Of course, it also has the Strobel Last with the upper attached to the SpEVA 55 Foam.
- This is for improved cushioning and an averagely soft underfoot feel.
