Asics Gecko XT Trail Running Shoes
Ideal for trail running, the Asics Gecko XT is durable and reliable, to give you confidence and performance in equal measures. Optimal grip and traction are provided by the trail-specific outsole while exceptional cushioning is ensured by the FlyteFoam midsole.
Breathable Mesh Upper
Breathable mesh has been used in the construction of the upper to provide excellent breathable and ventilation properties. The mesh actively and efficiently wicks away the build-up of excess sweat and moisture to leave your feet feeling cool, dry and comfortable as you strive for the best results and performance. In addition, cool air is encouraged to circulate, creating a cooler, drier environment for your feet to thrive in. A removable EVA sockliner moulds to the shape of the foot, which can be removed to accommodate a medical orthotic. The gusseted tongue adds comfort and guards against irritation such as chafing. Further protection is provided by the lace garage, which ensures the laces remain secure, offering a tighter, more resilient fit for your feet as well as a locked-in feel.
Your safety and visibility are significantly improved thanks to the reflective detail which is ideal for low light conditions such as early morning or evening runs when the light is at a premium. A rock protection plate offers resistance against debris, sharp objects and branches etc. California slip lasting provides much-needed stability and comfort by stitching the upper around a canvas and attaching it directly to the midsole.
FlyteFoam provides exceptional bounce-back and responsiveness, no matter what the distance; utilising organic super fibres to help reduce the packing out that traditionally happens with softer, lower density foams. This application of energy-return technology means the use of superfluous muscle power is reduced; diminishing fatigue and enhancing performance, keeping you motivated for longer. Furthermore, a length of SpEVA Foam resides underfoot to further improve bounce-back characteristics and decrease midsole breakdown; the added cushion produces a soft feel and improved comfort for an even, uninterrupted ride. This clever technology works to reduce shock during the impact phase; sparing your joints as you sprint down onto rocky terrain, and allowing for a peaceful transition to mid-stance.
Trail Specific Outsole
The trail-specific outsole offers an abundance of grip and traction to help you run with confidence, even on the most difficult, unpredictable terrain. Having the underfoot grip and traction enables you to maintain focus and performance, allowing you to push yourself to the limit without being held back by the shoe. Reserved lugs provide uphill and downhill traction on all types of terrain. The lugs are strategically placed to offer a full, unrestricted range of motion in all directions. Asics’ new Gecko-Tech technology provides resistance to wet and slippery terrain to provide an assured footing no matter how treacherous the conditions are underfoot. This is ideal in the more severe trail where the ground is wetter or more conducive to ice.
