GREET YOUR FEET WITH GREAT RUNS
If you are a mild to moderate overpronator looking for a daily running shoe, here's the best bet brought to you by asics. Renowned for its Fit, balanced and cushioned ride and smooth heel to toe transition, the updated version of the asics GT 2000, the Asics GT 2160 makes you enjoy the best performance everytime. The shoe has an increased memory foam along the heel collar and forefoot, ensuring that the Asics GT 2160 offers plush cushioning and excellent shock absorption.
With stability coming as an award-winning heritage factor, the Asics GT 2160 stability running shoe has overcome those few weaknesses found in the 2150 version, making it a pleasure to run in. Reverting to the Asics GT 2140's close fit, the toe box is also narrower compared to the GT 2150, preventing the foot from shifting around in the shoe.
Narrow or broad, take your pick
This update of the Spring 2011 running collection, the GT 2160 is the lightest running shoe of the GT 2100 series. With the lightweight feature of the GT series still intact, the GT 2160 men's shoe has increased by only 1 oz to 11.5 oz, and the women's shoe stands the same at 9.6 oz. However, unlike its predecessors, the GT 2160 doesn't have an asymmetrical lacing system, but the good old straight lacing system to provide a snug fit, locking the foot in place.
The Asics GT 2160 works wonders for those who have a narrow heel as this range of asics shoes comes with narrow sizing options. Highly recommended for overpronators, the Asics GT 2160 running shoe has an improved and more responsive cushioning that greatly contributes towards making it a long term running partner.
Torsion stability with midfoot support
The GT 2160 is employed with the Duo Max stability system, which is a harder piece of foam injected into the midsole mould, especially around the medial (inside) area of the foot, extending from below the ankle to the mid-heel, making it an ideal shoe for overpronators. This medial support can easily be recognized by its standardised grey colour that prevents the arch from collapsing excessively when running. This running shoe is also employed with the Asics Space Trusstic System stability feature that enhances midfoot support.
On the outsole, this midfoot support is represented by a thermal plastic unit or TPU bridge that wraps around the midsole right under the inner arch of the foot, offering torsional stability. This helps prevent the foot from rotating unnaturally. However, the Trusstic System in the GT 2160 is different in men's and women's shoes, with the women's shoe having amore extended bridge that wraps the foot higher enhancing stability, as women has a wider Q-angle.
Decoupled heel for plush rides
For that extra cushioning, two units of the Asics Gel cushioning system is employed in the heel and forefoot of the Asics GT 2160. The forefoot is made much more plush, while the decoupled heel absorbs shock according to the manner in which the foot lands on the ground, distributing the impact evenly and cushioning the feet from injuries. The main change in the outsole of the Asics 2160 is that it has an Impact Guidance System (IGS). The IGS is a longitudinal groove carved in the midsole. This groove guides the foot through the most efficient stride and also reduces the weight of the shoe, enhancing running speed.
Great mileage for great runners
Constructed with synthetic overlays, the upper of the GT 2160 wraps tightly around keeping the foot locked down in place. It is employed with a rich and removable sockliner that allows the runner to fit an orthotic into the shoe for added ergonomic comfort. The ComforDry sockliner of the Asics GT 2160 provides extra amortization and anti-microbial technology that reduces bad odour and keeps the feet fresh and dry. The heel collar of the GT 2160 includes memory foam on the inside and outside, making it all the more plush and comfortable.
One of the best running shoes ever created this season, the GT 2160 is a great wear for mild to moderate overpronators. Offering plenty of support and great mileage, the Asics GT 2160 is a great buy for serious runners.
