- The 3rd version of the Gel Excell33 is a neutral running shoe that’s meant to encourage a smooth and nature foot motion. The cushioning systems are adequate for both neutral runners, and those with supinated foot movement. A thicker FluidRide® foam is placed in the lateral side for a balanced underfoot experience.
- Breathability and comfortable coverage are afforded by an upper unit that uses very flexible and responsive materials. The main fabric moves like cloth and it keeps the foot well-ventilated at all times. It’s secure and dependable in wrapping the foot snugly.
- The mid-sole platform is comfortable and reliable in providing protection against landing shock. The technologies that are in play here are efficient in giving a plush and supportive underfoot environment. It does not limit the movements of the foot and it even flexes well.

The Asics Gel Excel33 3 has a standard running shoe length. It is available in sizes that adhere to the regular measurements for men and women. The available width is medium, so those with feet that are medium-sized would be able to acclimate well when wearing it. Its semi-curved shape accommodates the natural curvature of the foot.
Similar to the popular Asics Contend 4, the Gel Excel33 3 uses the AHAR® or the Asics High Abrasion Resistant Rubber. It is a durable external sole component that’s made from carbon rubber. It’s one of the most reliable layers of protection when it comes to running shoes. It protects the sole unit from wear and abrasion. It also gives reliable traction over the roads.
The FluidRide® is a full-length foam that delivers responsive cushioning and durable protection. It has bounce-back properties, so it can make each step more agreeable and more improved. It also doesn’t break down easily, making the shoe as efficient even after many uses. The lateral side is slightly denser, balancing under-pronated foot motion.
The Gel® Cushioning System is a silicon-based unit that is placed in the rear of the Gel Excel33 3. It attenuates shock when landing the foot on the ground. It also permits a smoother and easier transition through the gait cycle.
The FluidAxis™ is a set of deep flex grooves that are anatomically structured to follow the natural movement of the wearer’s foot. It’s meant to identify & adjust to the changes in position during heel striking and forefoot liftoffs.
The open mesh is the main material that’s used in this running shoe. It has a cloth-like quality to it, but it’s durable and very flexible. Air is constantly introduced to the interior of the Asics Gel Excel33 3, so the runner’s foot stays cool and dry even during longer races.
The overlays at the sides are made from synthetic materials. They responsibly hug the foot in order to keep it in place. They have a pliable nature, so the runner’s movements aren’t restricted. They also don’t have a substantial weight.
The Hell Clutching System™ is an exoskeletal heel cup that holds the rear of the foot in place. It prevents accidental shoe removals and slippage. The tongue and collar are lightly padded, as well. They help in securing the foot.
The ComforDry™ Sock liner adds more cushioning to the platform of this shoe. It has moisture-management and anti-microbial properties, thus keeping the interior clean and dry at all times.
