Neutral. The ASICS GEL-Oracle™ serves the niche runner who demands stability on a neutral platform. A dual layer midsole offers passive support and plenty of shock absorption while a roomy upper easily accommodates orthotics.
Upper: > P.H.F.™ (Personal Heel Fit) system features two layers of memory foam that line the collar and mold the athlete's foot. Exoskeletal Heel Clutching System™ improves support and creates an improved heel fitting environment.
Midsole: Impact Guidance System (I.G.S.) design philosophy employs linked componentry that enhances the foot's natural gait from heel strike to toe-off. Rearfoot and forefoot GEL cushioning systems attenuate 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 lighter in weight than ASICS' standard EVA and SpEVA while still enhancing cushioning and durability. The Trusstic System reduces the weight of the sole unit while retaining the structural integrity of the shoe. Removable, ComforDry™ sockliner provides cushioning performance and anti-odor properties for a cooler, drier, healthier environment.
Outsole: Guidance Line vertical flex groove decouples the tooling along the line of progression for enhanced gait efficiency. AHAR (ASICS High Abrasion Rubber) is placed in critical areas of the outsole for exceptional durability.
