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 light blue and pink body.
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.
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.
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.
Meanwhile, on the base of the trainer, a guidance line helps 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.
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, Bunions, and Plantar Fasciitis.
