Asics Gel-Pursuit 2 Women’s Running Shoes
The Asics Gel-Pursuit 2 Women’s Running Shoes are a front-runner in the neutral cushioning category for ASICS, aimed at runners who are looking for a reliable training shoe that offers good levels of cushioning and comfort to take to the streets.
Breathable Open Mesh Upper
The upper of the Gel-Pursuit 2 is constructed with an open Breathable Mesh that allows air to fully permeate the entire upper providing a constant supply of fresh, cool air. The shoes simultaneously push out hot, muggy air that resides within the upper during high-intensity activity to keep your feet cool, dry and comfortable. In addition, synthetic overlays wrap around the upper in key areas and tie in with the laces to cradle the foot and provide a snug and supportive fit.
The upper is stitched around a canvas or EVA board, in this case, it is the California slip lasting and works endlessly to provide stability and ultimate comfort. A padded tongue, heel and collar also provide ultimate comfort to the surrounding soft tissue that is prone to skin irritation and distractions.
Compression Moulded EVA Midsole
The midsole of the Gel-Pursuit 2 is constructed using a compression moulded EVA compound that provides superb cushioning and rebound properties. The midsole unit absorbs shock and impact forces that occur during the heel strike phase of the gait cycle and harnesses the energy created. From there the midsole transfers that harnessed energy to the forefoot area where at the toe off phase, the shoes push you off into your next step.
Rearfoot and forefoot gel provide additional shock absorption and cushioning by providing plush cushioning where the most pressure runs through the foot, offering your foot overwhelming comfort. In addition, the midsole offers Asics’ famous Trusstic system. The Trusstic system is comprised of plastic and works tirelessly to provide torsional stability keeping the shoe strong and rigid without the loss of flexibility.
Blown Rubber Outsole
The outsole of the Gel-Pursuit 2 is used with a blown rubber outsole that provides amazing grip and super durability properties on wet and dry surfaces. The more durable parts of the rubber compound are placed in high-wear areas, while the more grippy parts of the rubber are placed everywhere else to enhance grip and overall performance.
