Asics GEL-Blackheath 6 Hockey Shoes
Play hard in comfort and in style in the Asics GEL-Blackheath 6 Hockey Shoes. The latest addition to the series features rearfoot and forefoot GEL cushioning for additional comfort, along with the Asics DuoMax support system for extra stability whilst playing. These shoes are built with lightweight protection in mind, to keep you playing comfortably throughout every game.
A reinforced upper means increased durability and a firm fit; reducing in-shoe slippage for smooth, distraction-free strides. Made with tough synthetic materials, it will protect the wearer from impacts and abrasions during a zealous match. Asics’ PGuard rubber/resin composite compound wraps the forefoot for increased protection, plus a heel cradle helps to anchor the foot to the midsole, contributing towards the firm and resilient fit of the Blackheath 6.
GEL Midsole Cushioning
Asics have set out to make the GEL-Blackheath 6 their most comfortable hockey shoe. Consequently, they have deployed two GEL cushioning units into the shoe’s midsole: one in the forefoot, and one in the rearfoot. These GEL units attenuate shock, so your joints are spared as you strike down onto unforgiving pitches. Further cushioning is offered by the SpEVA midsole platform. SpEVA provides shock absorption and cushioning, whilst also providing bounce back; reducing the use of superfluous muscle power to keep you comfortable and energised while you play. Asics have also included their DuoMax support system in the Blackheath 6’s design. DuoMax provides support and stability to the wearer. It is positioned sport specifically, and consequently, it will offer maximum arch support and protection to any hockey player who wears this shoe.
These hockey shoes are most suited to natural or artificial grass, but can also be used on gravel. Strategically located SpeedGrip lugs offer superior grip and stability, even on damp grass, to ensure that you can accelerate, decelerate and make quick changes of direction without losing your grip. The rubber used offers high traction and durability, to ensure that your grip won’t fail. Flex grooves are placed on the outsole to promote natural foot flexion; for easy, unhindered strides and freedom of movement.
