Asics GT-1000 Men
As we wrote a few weeks ago, the popular GT-2100 series is getting a revamp this fall and relaunching as the Asics GT-2000. If you follow the Asics lineup closely, you’ll know that the company currently also produces an 1100 series. So what’s happening with that?
The 1100 series is also set for a retake, launching as the GT-1000 this October. The GT-1000 will continue to be a cushioned support shoe with many of the characteristics of the 1100 series. We’re fans of the current 1170 and think that the new GT-1000 will deliver a very similar ride and strong value.
What to Watch For
- Completely New Design: Though it retains many traditional Asics design cues, the GT-1000 sports a new platform and upper.
- Guidance Line: A full-length guidance line helps to keep the transition smooth from foot plant to toe-off. This is a feature being added to most of Asics’ new models, and from what we’ve seen so far, it works as advertised.
- Pink Ribbon Edition: Asics has partnered with Christina Applegate’s Right Action for Women foundation, which provides assistance to women who are at an increased risk for breast cancer. The Pink Ribbon edition of the GT 1000 highlights the partnership, with $2 of every sale in October going to the foundation (up to $100,000).
