The Asics GT 4000 2 is a stability running trainer recommended for those with low arches or flat feet. This style is for women and comes in a blue and navy body, with white and pink highlights.
In terms of the stability, local pressure is reduced under the arch, adapting to whatever terrain you encounter. A hard plastic plate will flex safely under normal running conditions, but will become rigid if the arch of the foot rolls too much. This means that you will feel smoother transitions during long distance runs.
Moreover, this technology has been combined with a guidance line on the base of the trainer. This will help you to move more comfortably. By bending the sole to mirror the natural bend in the foot during a run, the amount of stress is reduced.
In addition, a section of this mid-sole has been made with a firm sponge. This controls the inward rolling of the heel that occurs when the foot touches down at the end of a step. Strides will become noticeably smoother. Bolstered together with the Guidance Trusstic system, these two technologies work together to create the unique stability in this trainer.
Asics has made this model lightweight, and there’s an additional spring in every step that you take. The lightweight foam construction means less drag and greater toe-off, to keep you moving naturally. All in all, this technology creates trainers that are 55% lighter than the industry standard.
Inside this model, an Ortholite X-40 insole can be found. This is highly breathable material that can withstand moisture and provide long-term cushioning. And, for this particular version, there are higher rebound properties. It is also removable and machine washable.
Lastly, if you are planning on increasing your run-time, the highly resistant rubber compound reduces wear at key impact areas of the outsole. This is the same material used for car tires. Durability of the footwear is increased, while keeping necessary functions such as grip.
Due to the features that the Asics GT 4000 2 has, this model can also help with treating foot conditions. These include collapsed arches and Plantar Fasciitis.
