Flytefoam Midsole Propels You Forward

A side view of the women's ASICS GT-2000 10.

The ASICS GT-2000 10 features a lightweight and supportive midsole that protects your feet with each step. Flytefoam midsole technology recovers its shape after every run, providing continuous cushioning for miles on end.

Flytefoam Propel technology in the midfoot provides impressive responsiveness, making for an effortlessly smooth ride.

Fleet Feet reviewers noticed the supportive yet flexible feel of the ASICS GT-2000 10.

“These shoes fit and perform well. They’re firm but responsive. They’re not overly stiff or controlling like some stability shoes tend to be,” says one reviewer.

GEL Technology Cushioning in the rear and forefoot gives your feet extra protection where they need it most. The gel cushioning absorbs shock during take-offs and landings, allowing for smooth transitions.

The ASICS GT-2000 10 features LITETRUSS technology, helping to reduce the effects of excessive pronation. A firm medial post helps reduce the inward roll of your feet, ensuring an efficient toe-off with every stride.

Our reviewers appreciated the gentle stability provided by the shoes.

“This shoe offers support while still providing a flexible toe off. The heel has a firmer feel and the forefoot feels softer. The heel to toe transition is smooth,” one reviewer says.

Soft Knit Upper Holds You In

The ASICS GT-2000 10 features an updated engineered knit upper, rather than the mesh upper used in the previous model.

The new upper is soft and smooth, and wraps around your foot to provide extra support.

Fleet Feet reviewers noticed how comfortable the knit upper felt.

“The upper material has a soft, premium feel. I love how the upper looks like a knit, but feels more like mesh. It’s stable and breathable and locks down well,” says one reviewer.

3D print details surrounding the heel add an extra layer of support, while ASICS’ 3D Space Construction technology provides increased compression around the midfoot.

A plush, padded heel collar and tongue create a cozy fit and long, flat laces provide ample room to customize the fit of your shoes.

“I definitely felt the soft, plush-yet-structured materials in the heel. My feet were a bit tired and achy from a walk earlier and they really appreciated the supportive, soft material,” one reviewer says.

A fresh new upper and a more responsive midsole add some flexibility and comfortability to the shoe.

The ASICS GT-2000 10 features an engineered knit upper, replacing the mesh upper from the previous model. The result is a supportive and comfortable fit that won’t weigh you down.

A newer, bouncier midsole material, dubbed Flytefoam Propel, adds some flexibility and responsiveness to the shoe.

Overall, reviewers appreciated the combination of softness and stability.

“For a stability shoe, the GT-2000 10 is surprisingly flexible in the forefoot. The midfoot is more rigid and stable. While ASICS has made some big changes to the structure of the shoe, the ride still feels fairly traditional for a trainer,” one reviewer says.
