Good to know
Who is it for? This trainer is created for Asics and golf fans who are curious and would want to try out the first golf-specific shoe from the brand.
Why is it good? Though not ideal for moisture contact, the Asics Gel Course Glide delivers several benefits to any golfer:
- The flexibility of on and off the course wear
- Maximum ventilation is welcomed because of the air mesh material placed on the vamp
- The dual midsole provides features like comfort, shock absorption, and smooth foot transition
After Spikes. For many golfers, spikes are necessary for delivering the necessary ground hold. However, with the revolutionary introduction of spikeless, it uncovered a new way of doing things. The bottom of this trainer is devised with treads that mimic the traction of spikes. The combination of deep flex grooves and wedge-shaped outsole provides grip while improving stability throughout each swing.
Fly with FlyteFoam. The demands of players might be different but there is always room for comfort that needs to be prioritized. FlyteFoam is a popular midsole technology that is pulled from other Asics running silhouettes like the Gel Kayano 23 and Gel Nimbus 19. Made out of organic "super fibers," this cushioning system boasts of being 55% lighter and more durable than typical foams. Its responsive properties return back to shape as it springs the foot forward on each stride.
Giving the needed push. As the first model released by the brand, golfers can still trust the brand that it is inclusive of its consumers' needs. The heel area is equipped with a Rearfoot gel system, a cushioning system designed to absorb shock and helps the transitioning of the foot, especially during midstance, smooth.
Keep it light. If there's a theme that Asics Gel Course Glide follows, it revolves around lightweight comfort. Following that, this shoe is applied with an air mesh material to introduce maximum ventilation on the course. To infuse structure and improve the stability o the golf swing, the sides of the shoe are placed with a rubber material.
Smooth, even on the interior. Going big on the reduction of the weight. the shoe boasts of seamless construction. It also brings in different advantages like eliminating friction and potential irritation because of the rubbing of stitches and seams.
Like the entire Asics range, the Gel Course Glide is packed with serious athletic looks. Those familiar with the brand would realize its style consistencies with its other famous silhouettes. In golf where a more formal look is welcomed, this shoe comes as a refreshing and casual alternative. The various materials positioned on the different parts of the upper incorporates contrast through textures.
