Asics Shoes, Asics Shoes Gel
The Asics GEL 1160 is a stability training shoe, suited for both beginners and high mileage runners, who have a tendency to overpronate their strides. Runners, who prefer lighter, low-profile shoes with good arch support, should develop a naturally liking for this shoe. The GEL 1160 features a full length SPeva lasting, giving it a more cushioned and softer feel.
Here are some of its innovative features:
Duomax is a proprietary system, which is made up of two different density materials in the midsole section, designed for smooth overpronation control. This dual density midsole material is equipped for enhanced stability and support while running.
As its name would allude, the Asics GEL 1160 is equipped with a unique GEL. This GEL is made from a special silicone that accommodates for optimal shock absorption. These GEL units are strategically placed on the midsole in order to provide runner with added support for different functions and running positions.
Asics seemed to have placed a lot of emphasis on comfort while designing the GEL 1160. In addition to all those previously mentioned comfort features, the GEL 1160 also has a special midsole material designed for shock absorption, known as the Speva Midsole. This system is an improvement of the Asics EVA system, as polymers shaped like balloons are designed to quickly recover their shape to absorb impact from each successive step. It also provides other additional benefits such as an improved rebound, better durability and reduced chances of injuries.
Its lace-up design provides a secure and customized fit. Its padded tongue and collar provide runners with substantial ankle support.
The GEL 1160 has a textile lining that absorbs any moisture. It also has a removable foot-bed, which is designed for additional arch support.
The Asics GEL 1160 is an excellent running shoe, with smooth transition from heel to toe. Runner can look forward to a rather cushy feel beneath the balls of their feet. Even though it may not be the fastest feeling shoe in the market, it does provide runner with plenty of support during a run, whether on a treadmill or pavement.
