The ASICS GT-2000 12 takes what runners have come to love in this classic stability running shoe and repackages it in a sleeker and lighter shoe. These shoes offer support for overpronators with a 3D Guidance system for more natural stability. A redesigned midsole features ASICS’ signature PureGEL and a light and fast FF Blast+ foam for soft cushioning and a smooth ride. These shoes are perfect for any run, no matter the distance.
WHY PACERS CARRIES THESE SHOES:
The ASICS GT-2000 12 is everything you want in a mid-cushioned stability shoe. With enough cushion to handle longer runs and higher mileage and enough responsiveness to occasionally pick up the pace for a tempo run or fartlek, the GT-2000 12 is a true workhorse everyday trainer for all levels of runners.
A redesign of ASICS’ core stability running shoe, the GT-2000 12 is a thoroughly modern stability shoe that does justice to the classic line. A revamped midsole, with full-length FF Blast+ foam offers softer landings, a more energetic ride, and a lighter feeling than previous models. The lighter foam allows ASICS to add 5 additional millimeters of it under your foot for even more cushioning. ASICS’ 3D Guidance system offers natural-feeling stability with a beveled heel, wide base, and flared forefoot. The result is a softer, lighter, and more flexible take on this perennial classic.
WHO THESE SHOES ARE FOR:
- Runners of all abilities looking for a supportive daily trainer
- Walkers of all abilities
- People who stand on their feet all day for work
WHAT’S IN THESE SHOES:
PureGEL – gel padding in the heel provides soft landings.
3D Guidance system – provides stability for smooth and natural transitions.
FF Blast Plus – lightweight midsole foam that is energetic on toe-off.
AHAR+ – high-abrasion rubber in heel for more durability.
- Jacquard mesh upper – for a breathable and supportive fit on the foot.
HOW THEY FIT:
- SIZE: True to size
HEEL: Locked in (padding around the collar hugs the heel for a snug fit)
MIDFOOT: Snug (gusseted tongue provides a narrow, supportive fit)
- FOREFOOT: Moderate (most runners will have plenty of wiggle room)
HOW THEY COMPARE TO OTHER SHOES:
CUSHION: The ASICS GT-2000 12 has a medium level of soft cushioning. For an even more cushioned running shoe, we recommend the ASICS GEL-Kayano 30.
PRONATION: The ASICS GT-2000 12 offers a moderate amount of stability to address overpronation. For a neutral shoe, we recommend the ASICS GEL-Cumulus 25.
SPEED: The ASICS GT-2000 12 is too soft and heavy to really pick up the pace. For tempo runs and races we recommend the ASICS Novablast 3 or the ASICS Metaspeed Sky+.
- OTHER BRANDS: Shoes from other brands similar to the ASICS GT-2000 12 are the New Balance Fresh Foam X 860 v13, Brooks Adrenaline GTS 23, and Saucony Guide 16.
