Men's Asics Gel DS Skyspeed
The GEL-DS SKY SPEED is a lightweight training shoe designed for neutral runners. The outsole features a Guidance Line to improve running efficiency, as well as Propulsion Trusstic, which extends into the forefoot and allows for increased power at propulsion. Along with its Asymmetrical Lacing Design, the new Discrete Eyeletstay improves fit by allowing each eyelet to pull directly from the base of the shoe.
Biomorphic Fit technology allows the upper of the shoe to move in harmony with the foot, giving more comfort while in motion. This fit means the shoe material does not bunch, reducing the risk of blisters or irritation.
Asymmetric Lacing System
The Asymmetric Lacing System follows the curve on top of the foot in a natural way, to ensure a perfect fit and less friction.
The ComforDry Sockliner provides the optimum cushioning performance that creates a cooler, drier and healthier shoe environment.
Guidance Line places a visible groove in the mid and outsole that follows the foot's center of pressure from heel to toe. Automatic Guidance Line thus helps runners to maintain a natural, efficient gait, especially over long distances.
The Impact Guidance System (I.G.S.) is an ASICS design philosophy. It aims to make shoe components from rear to midfoot and forefoot to work together effectively to allow the body to perform in a natural manner. ASICS designers strive to compliment, not correct, how the legs and feet move.
Forefoot and Rearfoot GEL
ASICS GEL is a silicone-based cushioning system designed to meet the needs of both professional and recreational athletes. Forefoot GEL reduces the loading forces as the foot moves into propulsion, improving performance and minimizing the risk of injury. While Rearfoot GEL absorbs impact forces and helps to stabilize the foot during heel contact.
