  • The new iteration of the Asics GEL-Craze TR hasn’t undergone any significant changes compared to its predecessor, the GEL-Craze TR 3. This workout shoe from Asics is aimed at high-impact workouts on a variety of surfaces.
  • The most notable update is observed in the upper unit of the shoe. The new model employs a more open mesh construction in both forefoot and heel sections for enhanced breathability.
 

The Asics Gel Craze TR 4 comes in both men’s and women’s sizes. The available widths are D – Medium for men and B – Medium for women. 

The shoe employs the AHAR (Asics High Abrasion Rubber) technology, which is placed in the high-wear areas of the outsole for enhanced durability and traction.

Flex grooves make the platform more adherent to the natural bending of the foot, giving the wearer more freedom of movement throughout the exercise session.

The midsole of the GEL-Craze TR series is jam-packed with various technologies. They aim to provide ultimate protection and responsiveness.

The shoe makes use of Asics’ signature FluidRide technology. It is a twin-layer structure consisting of a lightweight Solyte and a high-bounce SpEVA midsole material. The cushioning properties of the Solyte ensure shock absorption, while the bounce-back characteristics of the SpEVA enhance movement into the next step.

In the heel area, the Rearfoot GEL technology contributes to the impact-absorbing properties of the midsole. It accommodates those athletes who prefer to have their workouts on hard surfaces.

The primary material used for the upper unit is an open mesh that’s combined with synthetic material for a snug yet breathable fit.

A stitched-on saddle is placed in the midfoot section of the shoe. It reaches the heel part, as well. It provides structure to the façade while ensuring a snug and secure fit.

A fabric cage underneath the main mesh material connects to the lacing system. It adjusts to the tightening and loosening of the shoelaces, causing the upper to be more agreeable to the fit-preference of the training enthusiast.

The padded tongue and collar give some cushioning to the top areas of the foot. They also prevent interior wobbling and accidental shoe-removals.
