The external design of the GT 1000 4 is pretty familiar with the previous version. However, it has a few refinements. First of all, the upper is made from more soften materials and the open hole mesh fabric, which gives considerably more flexible and breathable ride.

Traditional Asics “Tiger Stripe” logo is present in medial and lateral areas and serves not only as a decoration element but also as a major structural feature. It connects the midsole and eyelet row and also reaches back to the heel overlay. Like in the previous version, ASICS GT 1000 4 has an internally mounted rigid heel counter to lend support to the rear foot and sewn construction of the overlays. The tongue is on the thicker side of medium and the laces are the oft-utilized semi-flat style.

The ASICS Gel GT-1000 4 is a model of the mid-level line of ASICS’s shoes ideal for neutral and for mild to moderate overpronators. This shoe provides respectable quality of materials and good wearing characteristics for a medium price.

The sole of the shoe is multilayer and consist of foam layer (SpEVA foam for midsole in this model), rubber layer (carbon rubber at the heel for high-wear durability and softer blown rubber up front for enhanced cushioning) and gel inserts in a heel and forefoot areas for shock absorption and additional cushioning.

The Asics Gel GT 1000 4 has an abstentious and stylish colorways that will be useful for those runners, who don’t like many crazy colors in shoe design or just prefer more classic appearance.

Wearing advantages ASICS Men’s GT 1000 4

  • weight

Asics Gel GT 1000 4 is a pretty heavy model comparison to the other models of this line. It uses a heavier foam midsole material SpEVA. The good news is that this kind of foam provides great durability and grip.

  • breathability

The upper made with engineered stretch mesh, which allows lightweight breathability and both with synthetic overlays, provides a personalized, much snugger, glove-like fit on both your forefoot and mid-foot. 


  • sock liner

This model has a removable sock liner. It means that runners can choose between medical orthotic and additional underfoot support. It is easy to replace it.

  • eyelets

The model has independently placed discrete eyelets, which disperse lace tension and enhance comfort.

  • Another know-hows, that supplied in a model

Guidance Line (a flex groove that runs vertically from the heel to the forefoot) – a system, that gives you the smoother transition from heel to toe and improves gait efficiency, which is very important for wearing stability.

Rearfoot and Forefoot Gel cushioning system – attenuates shock during impact and toe-off phases, and allows movement in multiple planes as the foot transitions through the gait cycle.

Trusstic system – reduced the weight of the sole unit while retaining the structural integrity of the shoes.

Impact Guidance System – ASICS’s design philosophy that employs linked componentry to enhance the foot’s natural gait from heel strike to toe-off.

DuoMax technology (arch support and torsional rigidity for a better heel to toe transition) will surely be a great thing for runners with flat arches who are suffering from moderate to severe overpronation. This biomechanical issue could lead to injuries; thus, correcting or controlling them is recommended through dual- density midsole compounds.

Dura sponge outsole – is a material which is blown AHAR rubber compound for enhanced cushioning and durability.

The ASICS Gel GT 1000 4 created for over pronators and for those runners, who has neutral pronation. This shoe is made for the road, track, gravel and others dry surfaces.
