Asics GEL-DS Trainer 23 Running Shoes
The new GEL-DS Trainer 23 model has undergone a bit of a makeover in it’s latest iteration, but that doesn’t mean that it has sacrificed any of its previous performance. The new Adapt Mesh upper wraps and supports the foot, while also reducing the weight of the shoe. Updated DuoSole outsole has increased durability while maintaining the weight and ride that you have come to love.
Adapt Mesh Upper
Adapt 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 thrive in. The seamless construction produces an irritation-free fit; so you can enjoy your run with minimal friction, because we know how rubbing and blisters can ruin your day. The lightweight mesh fabric swathes you in feathery support, conforming to the changing shape of your foot and eliminating millimetres of movement with each stride. A removable EVA sockliner exists as an extra layer of step-in, anatomical comfort. The Heel Clutching System, an exoskeletal heel counter, guarantees perfect comfort and fit; it cradles the ankle and helps to anchor you to the midsole, reducing in-shoe slippage so that you can enjoy smooth, distraction-free strides. Reflective elements complete the upper, increasing your visibility to passing vehicle and keeping you safe on those late-night road runs.
FlyteFoam resides in the midsole. A generous layer of protection, bounce and comfort; it provides you with unmatched shock absorption and a lively ride. FlyteFoam is the lightest cushioning material ASICS has ever made, 55% lighter than the industry standard, EVA, and it buffers against the ground to protect you from unnecessary stress and fatigue. Its reinforced, organic fibres let the material bounce back to its original shape after every run; so you can train harder, more frequently, for longer, without the worry that your shoes might not be able to take it. Resilient and winning, FlyteFoam technology lets you run with the feeling that your feet aren’t even touching the ground. Embedded within the pillowy platform, and complimenting its bouncy nature, is the rearfoot GEL Cushioning System. This works to reduce shock during the impact phase; sparing your joints as your sprint down onto unforgiving concrete, and allowing for a smooth transition to mid-stance. Asics contrast their cushioning with the Dynamic Duomax Support System. Implemented on the medial side, it helps to control pronation; enhancing stability and support without sacrificing light weight or comfort.
The Propulsion Trusstic System uses a thermal plastic shank on the outsole to channel energy into forward propulsion. This system works by mirroring the function of the foot’s ligaments. This transforms the foot from a flexible structure, for shock absorption through the heel strike and mid-stance, into a strong, firm lever to provide forward propulsion. 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 priciples: Contact, MidStance and Propulsion. Asics’ design philosophy employs linked componentry to enhance the foot’s natural gait from heel strike to toe-off. Guidance Line technology uses a vertical flex groove to encourage consistent load transfer at the propulsion stage; reducing fatigue and the risk of injury. A DuoSole outsole completes the Gel DS Trainer 23, enhancing flexibility whilst maintaining traction and durability. AHAR+ (Asics High Abrasion Resistant rubber) is strategically deployed in high-stress areas to supply biting grip across every surface, resisting the traumas of heel-strike and toe-off to provide you with a reliable on long-lasting running buddy. Choose the Gel DS Trainer 23, for an ultra-light but stable ride.
