We’re already sold on the new GT 1000 for it’s great fit and responsive ride for mild to moderate over-pronators. In this Pink Ribbon (PR) edition (available in both Women’s GT 1000 PR and Men’s GT 1000 PR), Asics gives us one more thing to love about the shoe by partnering with Christina Applegate’s Right Action for Women.
This foundation assists women who are at an increased risk for breast cancer. Not only does this special edition trainer offer a proud pink aesthetic (the Women’s version even has satin ribbon laces), but for every pair of GT 1000 Pink Ribbon shoes sold in October, Asics will donate $2 to the Right Action for Women foundation (up to $100,000 total).
Applegate created the foundation in 2008, after she was diagnosed with breast cancer. The actress started the foundation to help women who are at an increased risk for developing the disease, but who cannot afford the expense of certain types of testing. Get your pair of this pink performance trainers to get runnin’ and to join the fight against breast cancer.
