Asics Gel-Blade 5 Court Shoes
The Asics Gel-Blade 5 Court Shoes are high-performance court shoes that have been re-designed to try and accomplish being the lightest and most innovative shoes on the market. With the Gel-Blade 5, you can now play a variety of court sports including, tennis, squash and even badminton.
Air 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. Synthetic overlays swathe the midfoot and heel to improve lateral stability; they unite with the lacing system to promote complete lockdown, anchoring you to the midsole reducing in-shoe slippage so that you can enjoy smooth, distraction-free strides. The asymmetrical lacing system also produces an anatomically correct fit, plus reduces the potential for irritation from lace pressure. Two layers of memory foam line the collar and mould to the athlete’s foot to create a Personalised Heel Fit, adding soft support and custom comfort. The PGUARD, a reinforced rubber/resin compound, wraps the medial forefoot for enhanced durability and protection against drag.
A moulded EVA sockliner exists as an extra layer of plush, step-in comfort. SpEVA resides in the midsole to supply lightweight cushioning. 20% more responsive than standard EVA, the rubber/foam compound boasts extreme resilience whilst it infuses every stride with the kind of power you need for a zealous game of tennis. Embedded within the midsole platform, are the Rearfoot and Forefoot GEL Cushioning Systems. The silicone-like material effectively absorbs shock and protects your feet from high-impact strikes, sparing your joints as you leap and land onto hard, unforgiving court surfaces. Magic Sole technology has been applied here; the vented midsole and outsole construction minimises weight while maximising breathability, keeping you cool on high-intensity days.
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 principles: Contact, MidStance and Propulsion. Asics’ design philosophy employs linked componentry to enhance the foot’s natural gait from heel strike to toe-off. A Trusstic System stretches out under the arch to increase stability; it reinforces the middle part of the sole, stopping it from twisting excessively and therefore diminishing the risk of the inward/outward rolling that might cause injury – perfect for those sharp, sideways movements. AHAR+ covers the heel; 50% more durable than standard Asics High Abrasion Rubber, it offers non-marking, multi-directional grip across wet and dry court surfaces. NC Rubber adorns the forefoot; it contains more natural rubber content than traditional solid rubber and this results in enhanced traction on court systems.
