Inspired by our GT-2000 series, the GT-800 (Wide) shoe is a technical style that’s versatile for an array of running workouts. This style is also complemented with a wide fit for runners who require more width in their footwear.
Featuring a re-engineered midfoot panel to increase lateral support, this shoe also implements a series of suede accents with a primarily no-sew design on the upper.
Additionally, this shoe integrates a layer of our FLYTEFOAM technology in the midsole to help deliver a responsive bounce back between strides.
The GT-800 (Wide) shoe is a supportive and comfortable style that’s based on our long-standing performance running series.
A one-layer engineered mesh minimises rubbing between the foot and the upper to create a super snug, glove-like fitting experience. A unique combination of closed and open weave patterns optimises flexibility and breathability.
