Re-engineered and revitalized, the ASICS GT-1000 packs performance, fit and cushioning into a sleek silhouette. Retaining several traditional ASICS running design cues, the GT-1000 is modeled as a replacement to the GT-2170. The runner sports a breathable, seamless and ultra-lightweight synthetic and mesh upper. A DuoMax midsole system is positioned to enhance support and stability. Guidance Line flex grooves decouple the tooling along the line of progression for enhanced gait efficiency. GEL cushioning systems attenuates shock during impact and toe-off, allowing natural foot movement through transitions. A Trusstic System reduces the weight of the sole unit while retaining structural integrity. DuraSponge in the forefoot is made from a blown AHAR compound, for responsive cushioning and flexibility.

The GT-1000 is currently available in a wide range of looks and fits for men and women, including pink-based “Pink Ribbon” pairs. For those looks, ASICS teamed up with Christina Applegate’s Right Action for Women foundation, which provides assistance to women who are at an increased risk for breast cancer.
