Asics GEL-Blackheath 6 Women’s Hockey Shoes
Play hard in comfort and in style in the Asics GEL-Blackheath 6 Women’s 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 your game.
The Asics GEL-Blackheath 6 features a lightweight reinforced upper to ensure the longevity of the shoe. Tough synthetic materials are used in the construction to provide durability and protect the wearer from impacts and abrasions. Asics’ PGuard rubber/resin composite compound features on the forefoot for increased durability and protection from impacts, whilst also allowing for breathability thanks to the air holes that maintain a comfortable environment within the shoe. A heel cradle provides additional support and protects the heel from impacts.
The GEL-Blackheath 6 also features an Anti-Gravel Tongue with generous padding, which prevents debris from entering the shoe, whilst also providing cushioning for extra comfort and protection. The inside of the upper features a removable sock liner for added comfort, which can be removed to accommodate an orthotic device. Generous padding around the ankle collar finishes the upper to provide exceptional comfort.
GEL Midsole Cushioning
Asics have endeavoured 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. The GEL units provide exceptional cushioning for more comfortable feet, whilst absorbing impacts to reduce the strain on the wearer’s joints, thereby making for a smoother ride. With GEL pads in the forefoot and rearfoot, you will remain comfortable throughout the gait cycle from heel strike to toe-off. Further midsole cushioning is offered by the SpEVA compound incorporated into the midsole. SpEVA provides shock absorption and cushioning, whilst also providing bounce back, to keep you comfortable and energised whilst 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 support to any hockey player who wears this shoe. DuoMax also protects the arch from impacts from underneath, and as such works in tandem with the shoe’s upper to protect you whilst you play.
These hockey shoes are most suited to playing on 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 their superior grip lasts for longer. Flex grooves are placed in the outsole to provide flexibility for additional comfort, and to give the GEL-Blackheath 6 a more natural ride.
