Inspired by our GT-2000™ series, the GT-800™ 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 bounceback between strides.
The GT-800™ (Wide) shoe is a supportive and comfortable style that’s based on our long-standing performance running series.
Ahar Rubber Sponge Outsole
Acronym for ASICS High Abrasion Rubber. Placed in critical areas of the outsole for exceptional durability.
Dynamic Duomax Support System
This evolution of DuoMax system enhances stability and support, with reduced weight and increased platform comfort.
Engineered Jacquard Mesh Upper
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.
Flytefoam Propel Top Layer
Combining a lightweight foam formulation with a high-energy return elastomer for increased bounce and unrivaled toe-off to give you a better performance out of every stride. Located closer to the foot to give that added comfort level.
Full Ground Contact
Provides a smooth and stable transition from foot strike to toe off.
Gel – Forefoot Twist
Shock absorbing material placed in forefoot of shoe. Shape of units designed for special function under the ball of the foot.
Gel – Visible Rearfoot
Reduces impact during heel strike and allows for a smooth transititon. Shape of units designed for special function under the outside (laterial) side of the foot.
Internal Heel Counter
The internal plastic structure of the shoe which wraps around the heel of your foot. It holds the heel in position during the movements of running improving support.
3D Space Construction
This technology is implemented through a series of strategically planted pillars within the midsole, allowing runners to experience more compression in a specific area without reducing durability or stability. These pillar formations are tuned differently in the men’s and women’s models to address each gender’s biomechanical data.
Width: D standard – STANDARD
For men the standard shoe width is D, going up to a wide fitting 2E and the widest a 4E. In New Zealand the most common shoe width size for men is a 2E.
