ASICS has teamed up with Christina Applegate’s Right Action for Women, a charitable services fund of the Entertainment Industry Foundation (EIF), to help provide assistance to women who are at increased risk for breast cancer.

From October 1 to October 31, 2013, ASICS America will support the fi ght against breast cancer by donating $2.00 per pair of shoes, and $1.00 for every bra and pair of socks sold, with a guaranteed donation of $100,000, up to $125,000, from specially marked ASICS products made available in retail stores nationwide. With this project, ASICS hopes to help all women experience the feeling of living with a sound mind, in a sound body.

(Replacing the GT-1000)
Last year's GT-1000 was a finely tuned re-imagining of our classic GT-1170, and runners loved the improvements while still getting what they've come to expect from our classic GT Series. But we never stop advancing when it comes to innovation and improvement, so we offer you the sublime GT-1000 2, which stays true to the GT-1000 series but with a new level of comfort you have to feel to believe.

New Tech in the GT-1000 2

Improved Forefoot Flexibility thanks to thinner, and more numerous flexgrooves under the forefoot. Transition at toe-off also benefits from this
Full-Blown Rubber Outsole boosts comfort and bounce-back
Increased Rearfoot GEL Cushioning for even more shock absorption and comfort
Full-Length SpEVA 55 Lasting provides greatly improved underfoot feel and comfort

Carried Over from the GT-1000

SpEVA Midsole Material adds bounce to the ride, adding softness/comfort, but without feeling "mushy"
DuoMax A dual-density midsole provides support and stability to overpronators
Trustic System provides midfoot structural integrity while reducing weight
Rearfoot and Forefoot GEL Cushioning reduces shock during impact and toe-off phase
Guidance Line A vertical flex groove on the outsole decouples along the line of your step for enhanced gait efficiency
Reinforced Vamp Vamp mesh durability is increased by the addition of a thin, seamless underlay
Open Upper Mesh provides added comfort and breathability
AHAR (ASICS High Abrasion Rubber) is placed in critical areas of the outsole for exceptional durability
