  • The Asics Gel Exert TR was designed to serve as a training companion for a range of intensive and frequently varied training activities. The upper is made up of a one-piece mesh for lightweight and breathable support. The entire unit is caged in the Flexion Fit technology for a flexible, yet structured fit.
  • The midsole is comprised of the shock-absorbing SpEVA material and the Rearfoot GEL cushioning system.
  • The moisture management is delivered by the ComforDry sock liner. It also adds an extra layer of cushioning.
  • The AHAR (Asics High Abrasion Rubber) PLUS material is used on the outsole. It ensures enhanced grip and protection against abrasion.

The Asics Gel Exert TR was designed to have versions for both men and women. The sizing scheme includes full and half sizes and follows standard measurements regarding length. The available width options are D – Medium for men and B – Medium women. The shoe tends to fit a bit narrow in the toe box which might not accommodate people with wider foot dimensions.

The brand’s proprietary AHAR PLUS material guards the forefoot and heel areas against abrasion, especially during intensive workouts. It also provides traction on smooth indoor surfaces.

The flat outsole features shallow treads to help athletes turn faster and easier. The strategic placement of flex grooves allows for the natural bending of the foot in multiple directions.

The Asics Gel Exert TR makes use of the SpEVA foam for cushioning and shock attenuation. The SpEVA includes a rubber ball constituent, which heightens its rebound property by about 20%. 

The Rearfoot GEL cushioning system is an additional component in the heel section. It protects the area against impact throughout the exercise session.

The foot chamber is ensured to stay dry with the moisture-wicking and anti-microbial ComforDry sock liner. It also adds another layer of shock absorption to keep the foot protected.

A similar set of midsole technologies is also found in the Asics Gel Craze TR 4.

A single-piece breathable mesh makes up the upper unit of the Asics gel Exert TR. Its lightweight nature doesn’t drag the foot down during a vigorous workout.

The façade receives structure from the feature known as the Flexion Fit. It is made up of a polyurethane cage that has hexagonal patterns. It wraps the entire upper for form-fitting, yet flexible support.

The lacing system offers an adjustable fit. It features extra pairs of eyelets in the collar for an even more secure lockdown.
