ASICS GEL-BLADE 4 Indoor Court Shoes
A high performance indoor court shoe primarily used for squash and other indoor court sports. The GEL-Blade 4 is loaded with performance driven technology ready to elevate your game. The shoe features ASICS’ proprietary Impact Guidance System (I.G.S), which enhances the foot’s natural propulsion, making for quicker cuts and movement around the court. A Rearfoot GEL Cushioning System provides a soft platform while ASICS High Abrasion Rubber (AHAR) offers long-wearing traction.
Synthetic Leather/Mesh Upper
Mesh uppers will encase each foot in breathable comfort. Perforations in the fabric increase airflow to create a better, healthier environment for your feet to win in. Synthetic leather overlays swathe the midfoot and heel to increase durability and promote complete lockdown, anchoring you to the midsole and reducing in-shoe slippage so that you can enjoy smooth, distraction-free exercise. The PGUARD, a reinforced rubber/resin compound, wraps the medial forefoot for enhanced durability and protection against drag.
SpEVA resides in the midsole to supply lightweight cushioning. 20% more responsive than standard EVA, the rubber/foam compound boasts extreme resilience whilst it infuses every stride with the kind of power you need for a zealous game of tennis. Embedded within the midsole platform, is the Rearfoot GEL Cushioning System. The silicone-like material effectively absorbs shock and protects your feet from high-impact strikes, sparing your joints as you leap and land onto hard, unforgiving court surfaces. Magic Sole technology has been applied here; the vented midsole and outsole construction minimises weight while maximising breathability, keeping you cool on high-intensity days.
Impact Guidance System Technology is a technical design, based on the philosophy of the human body, that allows the foot to perform a more natural heel-to-toe movement. This technology is based on 3 principles: Contact, MidStance and Propulsion. Asics’ design philosophy employs linked componentry to enhance the foot’s natural gait from heel strike to toe-off. A Trusstic System stretches out under the arch to increase stability; it reinforces the middle part of the sole, stopping it from twisting excessively and therefore diminishing the risk of the inward/outward rolling that might cause injury – perfect for those sharp, sideways movements. An AHAR+ outsole completes the Gel-Blade 4. 50% more durable than standard Asics High Abrasion Rubber, it offers non-marking, multi-directional grip across wet and dry court surfaces. Pivot points and flex grooves adorn the sole, dividing the medial and lateral forefoot to promote more efficient and aggressive turns and stability during lateral movements.
