Asics High Abrasion Resistant Rubber 

Similar to the shoe's well-known version, the Asics GT 2000 7, the GT 2000 4 uses the Asics High Abrasion Resistant Rubber or the AHAR which is made from durable carbon rubber.

It’s placed primarily in the heel area. It protects the external sole from wear and abrasion, thus preserving the integrity of the unit. It can handle impact and it doesn’t peel off easily.

The DuraSponge is a blown version of the AHAR. It’s durable, responsive, and it even gives enhanced cushioning to make each forefoot strike or toe-off more comfortable and efficient.

GT 2000 4’s lightweight cushioning

The FluidRide is a midsole technology that’s responsive and durable. It offers a mix of springiness and lightweight cushioning to each step, so the runner actually stays comfortable while landing on the ground and lifting the foot.

The Gel Cushioning System is a silicone-based gel that’s placed separately in the heel and forefoot sections of the Asics GT 2000 4. It’s there to attenuate shock and make each transition from the heel to the forefoot easier and more comfortable.

Asics’ high-end arch support

The Dynamic DuoMax Support System is a dual-density foam that helps in correcting the stance of the runner. It acts as a foundation that will lift the arch in order for the foot to assume a more neutral position when standing or when running.

The Impact Guidance System, Guidance Trusstic System, and the Guidance Line assist the foot through the gait cycle. They make sure that the process of going through the heel strike to the toe-off is much smoother and more agreeable.

Open Mesh provides high levels of breathability

The upper utilizes the Open Mesh, which is a material that delivers high levels of breathability in order to maintain a well-ventilated environment in which the foot can relax.

Holes or spaces permeate this material and these act as portals of entry for air to keep the upper and the foot dry and cool at all times.

All-around support

The overlay system has been fused onto the upper unit. They bring structure to the upper material, though they do not limit the natural movement of the foot because they’re not stitched on. These overlays work with the lacing system, giving a customized fit for the wearer.

The Heel Clutching System is an exoskeletal structure that’s meant to lock the rear of the foot in place. It holds onto the heel and prevents slippage or accidental shoe removal.

Asics GT 2000 4 insole

The ComforDry Sock Liner is a removable and replaceable insole that delivers additional cushioning to the runner. It can manage moisture well and its anti-microbial capability gives the runner a healthier and cleaner environment that’s free from odor.
