INTRODUCTION

The DS Trainer 17 is a moderate feature, minimum support shoe designed for speedwork, racing and daily training.

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
  • Solyte is an ultra light, top-of-the-line midsole that delivers durable and responsive cushioning.
  • DuoMax Support System uses a dual-density material in the midfoot to reduce over pronation.
  • Space Trusstic System utilizes a gender-specific, thermal plastic midfoot unit for natural foot movement and increased torsional rigidity.
  • Propulsion Trusstic System utilizes a thermal plastic unit that connects the lateral heel to the medial forefoot. This unit works to release stored energy and propel you forward during toe-off.
  • Impact Guidance System (IGS) design creates a smooth and balanced heel-to-toe transition.
  • Guidance Line is a vertical flex groove in the forefoot for improved gait efficiency.
UPPER
  • Biomorphic Fit Upper is a stretch material in the forefoot that moves with the foot to reduce irritation.
  • Open mesh on the upper provides breathable coverage.
  • Asymmetrical Lacing Design better follows the shape of the foot for an improved fit.
  • ComforDry Sockliner is made with anti-bacterial material to reduce odor and moisture and provide additional cushioning.
  • Clutch Collar System wraps the heel in a free-floating, memory foam-lined sleeve, for minimum heel slippage and a secure fit.
  • Strobel Last with the upper stitched to Dual-Density Solyte 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.
  • WET GRIP Outsole increases traction on wet surfaces.

Comments: Great shoe from Asics.  As a marathoner I use this shoe for anything 13.1 miles and under and it has held up wonderful.  I keep my 2170 for higher miles but this is my go to shoe for any speed work. 
Hope they come out with more colors.
