Recommended for moderate to severe overpronators needing enough room in the toe box to accommodate wide, flat feet or orthotics.
History : Gel Evolution Series : Evolution 5('09), Evolution 4('08), Evolution 3~1


AHAR+ : A thinner and lighter version of Asics High Abrasion Resistance rubber. It is placed on the impact area of the outsole to reduce excessive wear.

Biomorphic Fit : Provides enhanced upper fit and comfort while decreasing potential for irritation.

DuoMax® : Medial Post : Ensures that the shoe maintains proper support for the foot during the critical transition from heel strike to toe-off.

GEL® : Cushioning Systems : Provides maximum rearfoot and forefoot shock attenuation.

Protection Plate : Protects the foot from sharp objects such as rocks and branches.

SpEVA® : Midsole Material : Increased shock attenuation and midsole durability.

Stability Cradle™ : A reinforced EVA component contoured to provide medial and lateral suability.

Space Trusstic™ System : The system works with the complex functions of the foot to facilitate Windlass Mechanics. Space Trusstic is new I.G.S. componentry and an evolution, if not revolution of our benchmark trusstic technology. The Space Trusstic system is not integrated within the EVA. Rather it is suspended below the midsole EVA forming a distinct pocket or space into which the EVA of the mid foot section of the shoe can distort. The result is that torsion stability of the shoe is maintained but pressure on the plantar facia is released enabling tension with the transition from foot flat to propulsion. This is designed to facilitate the all-important Windlass Mechanism. Space Trusstic is a natural extension of I.G.S. and an enhancement of Windlass Mechanics.
