The GT-1000 6 is ideal for medium to high mileage runners. It offers maximum comfort and cushioning for each step. The comfortable 10mm heel drops keeps your foot at a natural angle, whilst the visible rear foot GEL provides cushioning and support for over pronators.
The full engineered mesh upper construction on the next generation GT-1000 ensures a better fit and stylish modern looks. The Duomax – a proprietary ASICS system that consists of two different density midsole materials – is designed to provide smooth over pronation control. And, the supreme midsole material, SpEVA, improves bounce-back characteristics and decreases midsole breakdown.

ASICS is an acronym of the Latin phrase ‘Anima Sana In Corpore Sano, meaning ‘A Sound Mind In A Sound body’. And staying true to this philosophy, every ASICS product is made to enable professional and everyday athletes alike to push the boundaries of their physical capabilities.
Innovative from the very start, ASICS’ first pair of shoes, produced in 1949, featured a unique recessed sole design, which mimicked the action of an octopus’ suction cup. They were targeted at Japan’s up-and-coming basketball scene and, despite some notable successes of ASICS athletes in the 1950s and 60s, it wasn’t until the 1970s that the company established itself in the athletics world as a go-to manufacturer of running shoes.
Not content to rest on its laurels, ASICS opened the Research Institute of Sports Science in Kobe, Japan, and has since helped to advance technology in sports shoes and apparel industry wide through studying and analysing the movements of the human body and testing all kinds of weird and wonderful materials.
Today, ASICS is one of the world’s best known makers of performance shoes and apparel and the true runner’s choice, whether at professional sporting events, the Olympics or on a casual run in the park.
