The Asics Men's GT-2000 2 Running Shoe disproves popular theory that sequels always suck. This second-generation sweetheart of a shoe runs 5Ks or 50Ks with ease, hits big weights at the gym without thinking, and it keeps you walking along the straight and narrow. Asics took the first GT-2000 and tweaked the midsole and galvanized the support system so you get a better running shoe the second time around. If insanity is doing the same thing over and over again, all the while expecting different results, you'd be crazy not to take this sequel for spin.
Open mesh lets your foot breath and the ComforDry sockliner keeps your foot feeling cool, even when you're pounding out sprints at the high school track. Antimicrobial treatment minimizes shoe stink, though it won't help your socks or running shirt. That's called laundry detergent, used when putting clothes in a washing machine. The Strobel last uses SpEVA 55 for a fairly soft underfoot feel and a kiss of extra cushion. The FluidRide midsole takes you for a lightweight and responsive ride, and gel cushioning in front and under your heel makes every step like landing on pillows.
You like a luxury ride, but what you really need is control. The Dynamic DuoMax, Guidance Trusstic, and Impact Guidance systems work cooperatively to improve torsional rigidity and limit the amount of lateral movement your foot can do. If you're an overpronator, you tend to roll inward, which in the long run may hurt you worse than forgetting your sweetie's 40th birthday. The three motion control systems try to minimize medial motion while giving your gait bounce from foot-strike to toe-off.
Ready to go any distance, the second generation ASICS GT-2000 2 Road-Running Shoes are even lighter weight and more comfortable than before to keep you comfortable on your long runs.
