ASICS Gel-Excite 7 Running Shoes
Rearfoot GEL Cushioning paired with an Amplifoam midsole will guarantee an extremely energetic and plush ride with the ASICS Gel-Excite 7 Running Shoes. Perfect for smaller distances and parkruns, the shoes will push you on for new PB's in supreme comfort.
As you begin to exercise, the body begins to warm. As the feet have many small working muscles in them, the feet start to expand and warm up. As a result the air inside the shoes will also warm to an uncomfortable level. However, the mesh surrounding the upper of the shoe will immediately step into action, allowing the air within it to escape out. The hot air is then replaced by cooler air from outside, and this will work constantly to provide you with exceptional breathability. Moisture from sweat is also able to escape out of the shoe, whilst liquid on the surface of the material is wicked away instantly, returning the shoes to their lightweight feel. A firm heel cup will ensure the rearfoot will always be held in a comfortable and upright position. A traditional lacing system will allow you to find a firm and comfortable fit all the way up the feet, guaranteeing a personalised and non-restrictive fit. A padded tongue and ankle collar will reduce the risk of irritation from rubbing, whilst it will also enhance comfort.
The midsole technology consists of an Amplifoam unit which is engineered to maintain durability at softer densities, providing better flexibility, comfort and platform adaptability ideal for natural running. Lightweight and resilient, Amplifoam spares your joints as you strike down onto hard, unforgiving surfaces. In addition, a rearfoot gel cushioning system resides in the heel to provide exceptional shock absorption from impact forces during the heel strike phase of the gait cycle. The gel spares your joints from unforgiving surfaces as you pound in the miles. Additionally, there is a removable Ortholite sockliner which will provide you with personalised cushioning, making mile after mile feel exceptionally comfortable.
The durable rubber used on the outsole of the shoe is abrasion-resistant which will prevent any damage from occurring over a long period of time exposed to hard ground. The rubber compound offers a higher density of rubber in high impact areas of the outsole where the most wear occurs throughout the miles, this helps reduce the wear and tear allowing you to run harder and for longer.
