Here’s a shoe we’re Super Jazzed about: the GEL Super J33. The initial shoe in a full reboot of the 33 Collection, the Super J33 is a lightweight, natural-run design that still provides pronation support. At just 7.3 oz for a Men’s 9 and 6.2 oz for a Women’s 7, the shoe will compare favorably to other supportive elemental models such as the Brooks PureCadence 2 and the Saucony Mirage 3.
The GEL Super J33 also integrates Asics’ revolutionary FluidAxis technology, currently found in the GEL Lyte33 2 and GEL Excel33 2. Both of those shoes offer a tremendously smooth laydown and excellent transition, and to the extent this is due to the FluidAxis technology, we welcome the design on more 33 Collection shoes moving forward.
What to Watch For
- Light, Natural Experience: The Super J33 opens up a new category for the 33 Collection. It will be the lightest shoe in the line and provides a more elemental supportive option than the Excel33 2.
- Low Drop: Asics sticks with a 6mm offset like it uses in the GEL Lyte33. We expect stack heights of approximately 20mm heel/14mm toe.
- Pronation Support: With a dual-density midsole and FluidAxis aligned to the geometry of the overpronator’s foot, this shoe is designed for mild to moderate pronators who want a more natural feel underfoot.
- Solyte Midsole: Asics’ lightweight midsole compound shaves weight while continuing to provide responsive cushioning.
