Neutral. The revolutionary ASICS 33™ collection continues to move forwards. The second generation ASICS GEL-Excel33™ 2 adapts and responds like no other shoe. This shoe is designed for neutral runners looking for a more natural experience without giving up the underfoot cushioning they are used to.
Upper: P.H.F.™ (Personal Heel Fit) system features 2 layers of memory foam to line the heel collar and mold to the athlete's heel creating a personalized fit. The Heel Clutching System™ uses an exoskeletal heel counter to provide improved support and a better heel fitting environment. Mesh upper with synthetic overlays. Textile lining.
Midsole: Heel GEL Cushioning System attenuates shock during impact and toe-off phases and allows movement in multiple planes as the foot transitions through the gait cycle. Solyte midsole material is a lighter weight compound than ASICS' standard EVA and SpEVA. Heel and forefoot SpEVA midsole amterial improves bounce back characteristics and decreases midsole breakdown. The Trusstic System reduces the weight of the sole unit while retaining the structural integrity of the shoe. A Propulsion Trusstic system mimics connective tissue in the foot by creating tension as the foot enters the propulsion phase. Guidance Line vertical flex groove decouples the tooling along the line of progression for enhanced gait efficiency. Removable, ComforDry™ sockliner provides cushioning performance and anti-microbial properties for a cooler, drier, healthier environment.
Outsole: AHAR (ASICS High Abrasion Rubber) is placed in critical areas of the outsole for exceptional durability.
