Asics GT-1000 5 Supportive Running Shoes The fifth version of the GT-1000TM series demonstrates Asics taking a another step to a new echelon of technical performance for overpronators. Featuring a newly engineered mesh upper for increased support and breathability, as well as Convergence GEL® Technology, the GT-1000 5 will provide you with all the support you need during your training. Asics’ diligence in designing this support shoe has seen this outstanding shoe be awarded with the American Podiatric Medical Association’s (APMA) Seal of Acceptance. Updated Synthetic/Mesh Upper The GT-1000 5 shoe’s upper has been updated from the previous version. The newly engineered mesh is more supportive, and more breathable than that of its predecessor. The breathable mesh allows excellent ventilation, and helps to keep the foot cool, dry and consequently more comfortable during training. A secure fit at the heel is provided thanks to the Heel Clutching System, which cradles the heel and offers increased support to the foot and helps to counteract overpronation. The Heel Clutching System utilises an exoskeletal structure which wraps the heel for a stable and secure fit, providing increased stability whilst running. A removable sockliner keeps the foot snug and provides additional stability, with the added benefit of being able to remove when not needed. The sockliner also has moisture wicking properties, which work in unison with the mesh panelling help to keep the foot cool, dry and comfortable during exercise. New Convergence GEL® Midsole The GT-1000 5’s midsole has also been updated. Convergence GEL® technology has been deployed in the heel area of the midsole to provide engineered, heel-specific support. The Convergence GEL® works by mimicking the fatty tissue in your heel to provide extra cushioning and support. Additional rearfoot and forefoot GEL® provides cushioning and shock absorption to ensure that minimal stress is placed upon your joints during the heel strik
