INTRODUCTION

The GT 1000 is a moderate feature, moderate support shoe designed for daily training and high mileage.

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: I'd been happily wearing the Asics Gel 1170s, so I hoped that the GT-1000s would be similar or even better. Unfortunately, I was disappointed. The shoes fit fairly well overall (although I would have liked some more room in the toe box). However, when walking or running, I noticed an awkward, rough transition from heel to toe instead of a smooth ride like most running shoes. There appears to be a little raised area on the bottom of the shoe at the back end. I did not keep these shoes. If the shoes were flat on the bottom, (like the Gel 1170s) I think they would feel smoother and more comfortable.

Comments: I agree with the other comments. I loved my other 2 pairs of Asics. The toe box is extremely tight - I have had the shoes for three months and can only wear them for short periods of time. I could never go on a casual walk in them. Very disappointed.

Comments: Very disappointed in these, way too tight in the toe area, have had nothing but sore squashed toes and also very slippery sole in the wet. Was hoping they would be as comfortable as previous asics, but they failed miserably.

Comments: I have to agree with Julie above. The toe box was too tight and through the arch. I didn't notice any problems with the instep height though. I have been wearing Asics exclusively for the past 7 years and these were supposed to be a replacement for the 1170 series. If this is how they fit I may need to change brands or styles. Disappointed.

Comments: After running in many pairs of Asics over the years, I felt fairly confident in the description offered for the GT 1000. Shoe was way too tight through the toe box and arch. The instep height is shallow and not ample for someone with a medium to high arch. Very sad because I really believed this one would be my go to shoe upon arrival.
