ASICS ANNOUNCES THE GT-2000™ 12, DELIVERING LIGHTWEIGHT STABILITY FOR ANY LENGTH OF RUN2023.08.23 PRESS
The versatile stability trainer is functional for long runs, short runs, and everything in between.
[August 23rd, 2023 – KOBE, JAPAN] – ASICS today announces the launch of the GT-2000™ 12 shoe, a versatile trainer that offers the advanced stability you’d expect from the GT-2000™ series but now with added comfort to help you achieve a sound mind in a sound body, however far you choose to run.
The GT-2000™ 12 shoe reimagines stability to deliver a new level of outstanding comfort across a range of distances. This is achieved through its 3D GUIDANCE SYSTEM™, consisting of wider basenets and an increased heel bevel and flared midsole, to create a silky-smooth transition from footstrike to toe off.
The shoe’s comfort has been further improved through the addition of FF BLAST™ PLUS cushioning across the full length of the shoe, creating a soft underfoot feel while producing a more energized response at toe off.
Additionally, the shoe’s heel incorporates ASICS’ PureGEL™ technology, which is both softer and lighter than the traditional GEL™ technology, and provides comfortable support underfoot as you push to achieve your best.
The GT-2000™ 12 shoe offers a more forgiving landing and a smoother ride thanks to an increase of 1mm in stack height compared to its predecessor.
Meanwhile, to reduce the potential for irritation over the course of a long run, the heel has been redesigned with a lean back achilles construction created to reduce irritation against the back of the foot.
Chad Mullavey, Manager of Global Product Line Footwear at ASICS said: “We call the GT-2000™ 12 a ‘workhorse’ of a shoe for very good reason, because whatever distance you choose to run, this shoe delivers the versatility and stability with its 3D GUIDANCE SYSTEM™ to last the course. We’re proud to have reimagined the typical stability shoe experience so that the GT-2000™ 12 really works with the motion of your stride, keeping your feet comfortable whether you are running shorter or longer distances. The GT-2000™ 12 shoe is where stability meets comfort, and we know this shoe will help so many to achieve a sound mind in a sound body.”
The GT-2000™ 12 shoe will be available for men and women from ASICS retail, online stores and specialists running outlets globally from September 1st, 2023, for $140.
