Asics Gel-Galaxy 9 Women’s Running Shoes
This all new version of the popular GEL-Galaxy shoe is designed to provide exceptional performance, cushioning and fit; ideal for entry-level or low mileage runners. The shoe is lightweight and will provide comfort and support every step of the way.
Breathable Synthetic/Mesh Upper
The Asics GEL-Galaxy 9 is constructed with a synthetic/mesh upper; providing breathability, support and stability. The mesh allows hot air to diffuse out of the shoe and cool air to permeate the membrane and travel into the shoe; creating a better, healthier environment for your feet to thrive in. Padding on the tongue serves to further enhance your comfort whilst out running. The addition of synthetic overlays on the outer prolong the shoe’s shape and provide additional support to the wearer by locking the foot in place; reducing in-shoe slippage for a smooth, distraction-free ride. A sockliner also features to provide additional comfort to the wearer. The sockliner can be easily removed and replaced with an orthotic device to help the wearer maintain good running posture. Reflective elements complete the upper, increasing your visibility to passing vehicles and keeping you safe on those late night road runs.
The GEL-Galaxy features a rearfoot GEL unit which absorbs shock and cushions the impact during the heel strike phase of the gait cycle. The GEL unit is placed close to your foot in order to replicate your foot’s natural tissue. This, in turn, increases the GEL’s functionality and performance; sparing your joints as you strike down onto hard, unforgiving surfaces. The GEL-Galaxy 9’s midsole also incorporates a full stretch EVA platform, designed with flex grooves that strategically fold on impact. This folding design reduces the pressure underfoot and allows the rearfoot GEL unit, encased in the EVA, to perform to its maximum capacity.
This shoe features an Asics High Abrasion Rubber outsole (AHAR). AHAR is a lightweight rubber compound that offers brilliant traction; it also boasts three times the durability of Asics’ standard rubber. AHAR is strategically placed in areas of the outsole that succumb to the most wear and tear, which helps to extend the shoe’s lifetime. The result is an extremely durable outsole with exceptional multi-surface grip.
