- Asics introduces only very minimal changes in the latest version of the Trounce series. The Gel Trounce 3 uses a thicker mesh with still enough breathability to keep up with the long-lasting performance of the rest of the shoe.
- For a more comfortable and form-hugging fit, Asics removed some of the overlays in the forefoot and strategically placed them in the midfoot. The result is a shoe with enhanced room in the toe box and has a better midfoot foothold.
- The vamp in the Asics Trounce 3 has several holes unlike the previous version. This helps drain out water fast.
Fit and sizing follow the prior version and run standard to industry norms. Runners with medium measurements from heel to forefoot will be very comfortable in this shoe. Additionally, the toe box has more room in this version. Available widths are D and B while sizes are from 6 to 14 for the men’s and 4 to 11 for the women’s.
Asics uses a mix of industry-standard carbon rubber in the heel and other high-impact areas and blown rubber the rest of the way for better durability and traction. The rubber pattern is moderate in size for added grip.
The midsole offers the renowned Gel cushioning system for shock attenuation. This is a silicon-based material that expands upon impact and compresses as the foot moves to mid-stance for better propulsion. Also Similar to the well known Asics GT 2000 7, keeping overpronation to a minimum in this shoe is the DuoMax Support System, which is a dual-density foam in the medial side for added arch support.
The upper is standard open mesh for breathability and synthetic overlays for support and structure. Asics relocates some of the overlays in the forefoot to the midfoot for more room in the toe box and enhanced midfoot support. A molded and removable sockliner provides enhanced step-in comfort and can be replaced with customized orthotics for a more personalized fit and support.
