CUSHIONING

  • Rearfoot Gel cushioning system uses a silicone based gel for responsive shock absorption on impact.
  • Forefoot Gel cushioning system uses a silicone based gel for responsive shock absorption on impact.
MIDSOLE
  • SpEVA is a full length midsole material for increased energy return.
  • Decoupled Heel absorbs energy from heel strike and minimizes impact shock.
  • DuoMax Support System uses a dual-density material in the midfoot to reduce over pronation.
  • Trusstic System utilizes a thermal plastic midfoot unit to reduce weight and increase torsional rigidity.
  • Full Length Guidance Line is a vertical flex groove in the forefoot for improved gait efficiency.
UPPER
  • Open mesh on the upper provides breathable coverage.
  • Standard sockliner provides additional underfoot cushioning.
  • Strobel Last with the upper stitched to SpEVA 55 Foam, for enhanced cushioning and a moderately soft underfoot feel.
OUTSOLE
  • Asics High Abrasion Rubber (AHAR) in the heel is made of carbon rubber for exceptional durability.
  • DuraSponge in the forefoot is made from a blown AHAR compound, for responsive cushioning and flexibility.

Comments: The GT 1000 feels NOTHING like the 1170's to me. Absolute shame - the 1100's - in particular the 1170's - were my favorite shoes.

Comments: The fit is almost identical to the prior Ascis 1170 shoe. However, it has a much cheaper type insert and a very small forefoot Gel Pad. However, by adding a more cushioned shoe insert from another shoe it works very well. Nice bright Neon yellow and with fewer upper overlays it is flexible and responsive. Outsole seems durable and I am impressed after running a 5K in them right out of the Box.. Do expect a quite firm feel to the forefoot.
