I saw a comment where a runner described the new Asics GT 2170 as “foot chocolate”. I have to agree! So glad we have these in stock now, some accounts won’t see them until February.
So what’s new with the GT 2170? Here’s the scoop straight from Asics:
For the last 17 years, the GT-2000™ series has produced generation after generation of high-end performance known for its consistently reliable fit, stability and cushioning. The GT-2170™ reprises its role as the industry leader with technical updates that stay loyal to its roots while pushing forward with improved fit and ride.
To compliment the lighter weight design, the upper now features Discrete Eyelets for a more uniform pull when the laces are tightened; creating an improved personalized upper fit. This series of individual eyestays allow the shoe to move with the foot more effectively while providing a great fit over the instep, as well as a decreased potential for irritation.
Large GEL® Cushioning System
ASICS takes great pride in its GEL Cushioning System and this year’s GT-2170 receives the largest GEL® unit in the GT-2000™ series to date. This one piece GEL® heel unit has been designed with a sculpted shape to optimize cushioning.
Full-Length Guidance Line®
Combine the largest series GEL® Cushioning System with a Full Length Guidance Line® extending from the heel to the forefoot and you’ve got a super cushioned ride, perfect for helping the foot move properly through its natural path of progression.
So, if you have a pair already, or plan to get some, let us know what you think about the changes. Post a comment, we love to hear from you!
