ASICS® Gel-1170 - Men's
ASICS’ popular model receives only minor modifications from its predecessor. It’s built for overpronators but also for those with a more neutral stride, who neither over- nor underpronate significantly.
- Weight: 10.6 ounces (men’s size 9)
- DuraSponge® abrasion-resistant rubber outsole lends durability, comfort.
- Space Trusstic System® reduces weight of sole by removing material from midfoot.
- DuoMax® dual-density foam midsole balances support, durability.
With little reason to mess with success, the developers of ASICS’ GEL-1170™ inserted a wedge of firm foam in the midsole to buttress the arch and help contain overpronation. The shoe was designed for long training runs and even marathons.This product can be shipped to US addresses ONLY.
ASICS® redesigned the upper to enhance the fit for runners across the mileage spectrum.
Developers brought back the rearfoot and forefoot GEL® cushioning system. This allowed ASICS’ proprietary cushioning system to disseminate shock from heel-strike as well as the toe-off phase of the stride.
ASICS also brought back its special ethylene vinyl acetate (SpEVA®) foam midsole. This provides resiliency and decreases midsole breakdown.
The Space Trusstic System helps reduce weight in the midsole in the GEL-1170 by removing material from that portion of the midsole. The resulting void enables the midfoot to collapse and bounce back while relieving the pressures of impact under that area of the foot.
The GEL-1170 adhered to windlass biomechanical research, which ASICS described as enabling the plantar fascia more space to reduce the chances of injury. It also helps the foot return to its natural function as a lever.
