Features lightweight, durable outsole with improved cushioning

The shoe features the lightweight and durable Durasponge Outsole in its forefoot section, which provides enhanced cushioning in every run. It is made from a blown AHAR (Asics High Abrasion Rubber) compound with shock-absorbing properties.

The AHAR is a durable rubber compound in the heel part of the outsole that’s meant to protect the rest of the sole unit from wear and tear. It also doles out traction on urban surfaces.

The Dynamic DUOMAX Support System is an improved dual density platform with cushioning and midfoot support. It features lightweight and enhanced stability that is highly favored by late-gait overpronators.

The Rearfoot and Forefoot GEL Cushioning Systems utilize silicon-based gel in the front and back parts of the sole unit to attenuate shock upon impact.

It adds an extra bounce during the toe-off phase, allowing runners to transition quickly and efficiently through the gait cycle without sacrificing comfort.

Asics’ FluidRide Midsole gives you a boost in speed and efficiency

The FluidRide Midsole is a standard midsole technology from Asics. Its cushioning and bounce-back properties aim to improve the user’s speed and efficiency without the bulk. It has been constructed to last longer.

The shoe is incorporated with a Gender Specific Cushioning. It essentially allows users to have adequate and agreeable underfoot experience. The top layer of the women’s version’s cushioning unit has a lower density, therefore midsole compression is more prominent.

Heightens the efficiency of the runner’s gait

A Guidance Line is strategically added to the midsole to heighten the efficiency of the runner’s gait. This vertical groove is a flexible line that reduces the likelihood of injury when running.

The Guidance Trusstic System Technology strengthens midfoot structural integrity, resulting in better shoe durability. Gait efficiency is further enabled because this tech is integrated with the Guidance Line.

Designed for natural foot motion when running

The Asics GT 3000 5 features the Impact Guidance System (IGS) design which encourages natural foot motion when running. This results in a more efficient and healthier gait from heel strike to toe-off.

The IGS is also present in the GT 2000 7, which is one of the brand's most popular shoes. The Comfordry Sockliner adds to the overall midsole cushioning of the shoe. It also boasts anti-microbial properties, which allow runners to skip the socks for better ground feel.

Asics GT 3000 5 offers a secure and cushioned feel

A breathable mesh material is used for the upper unit of the Asics GT 3000 5. It makes sure to allow air into the foot-chamber, thus maintaining a well-ventilated environment for the runner.

Aside from better support, the Heel Clutching System Technology of the shoe enhances stability and running performance. It keeps the heel in place and reduces excess movement. Runners can expect a secure and cushioned feel from this shoe.

The independently placed Discrete Eyelets allow a snugger fit and reduce lace tension. These provide a customized fitting environment without sacrificing comfort.
