Asics GT 1000.9 Men
Big G Says…
The GT1000 series still remains an excellent entry-level stability shoe for the casual runner and walker. Asics would love you to believe that this shoe has evolved as much and as quickly as some of their other models, but it hasn't. Yes, there are some changes and upgrades but a GT1000 is and probably always will be a GT1000.
The GT1000.9 is the lightest in the Asics Run Further Stability range. lt features a return of visible Gel. This enhanced cushioning material is now closer to the ground, imparting a softer feel at impact. The upper has been modernised with an aesthetically pleasing multi-directional mesh.
The mid-sole mix of Flytefoam and Gel for cushioning combined with a Duomax firmer medial insert for additional support in mid-stance to stabilise the overpronator, combine for a balanced ride of cushioning, support and comfort.
The use of Asics technical jargon - Flytefoam Propel, Guidance lines, Guidance Trusstic, etc can over-complicate matters. Just let it be said that in essence it remains a very good value shoe... but should not be fairly compared to Asics more expensive and technical models.
