ASICS GEL-1170

ASICS GEL 1170

This ASICS GEL-1170 is a hugely popular and great value shoe continuing the tradition of the GEL-1000 series. Offering you all the cushioning and support you need, it’s designed for moderate overpronators. It’s Rearfoot and Forefoot GEL Cushioning absorbs shock when your foot lands and provides a fantastic ride. This edition also contains the DuoMax Support System in the midsole to create enhanced support and stability. In addition, the outsole is reinforced with ASICS High Abrasion Rubber for greater durability.

At a glance:
  • A cool, cushioned ride like no other
  • Bounce back with their latest shock absorption technology
  • Made to last, it’s a shoe that’s durable and resilient, ideal for wherever you go and whatever you do
A cool, cushioned ride like no other…

It’s Rearfoot and Forefoot GEL Cushioning Systems absorbs shock when your foot lands and provides a fantastic ride. Plus, the inclusion of the DuoMax Support System is a dual density midsole system placed to ensure support and stability, positioned specifically for sport.

ASICS GEL-1170
Less shock, more bounce back…

The ASICS GEL-1170 features the latest in sports shoe engineering. For instance, the Rearfoot GEL® Cushioning System, which softens the impact shock when your foot lands, gives you smooth movement in any direction as your foot goes through the cycle of heel landing, foot progression and toe push off.

Don’t be weighed down with the wrong shoe…

ASICS know all about shoe weight management, so our SpEVA® midsole material reduces the shoe’s weight, decreases the midsole breakdown and gives you extra cushioning and bounce back. Our Trusstic System reduces the shoes weight even further, this time in the sole unit, while retaining all its important comfort, support and structural integrity.

Made to go the distance…

Why settle for shoes that never last? The outsole of the ASICS GEL-1170 is reinforced with AHAR+ (ASICS High Abrasion Rubber) placed in critical areas of the outsole for exceptional durability, so wherever you go, wherever you’re running, your shoes won’t let you down.

Product Description

The ASICS GEL 1170, Spring/Summer 2012, a hugely popular and great value shoe with a fantastic ride, is an excellent shoe for both intermediate and the ambitious runner as well as those requiring mild structure from a shoe at a decent value for money with the added benefits of a structured cushioning category. This shoe is the updated version of ASICS GEL 1160, with the 1170 being 8 grams lighter than the previous model. Continuing the tradition of the GEL-1000 series, the GEL-1170 is designed for moderate overpronators and provides a fantastic ride with features like the shock-absorbing Rearfoot and Forefoot GEL Cushioning.

5.0 out of 5 stars Tempted to buy another pair. 25 July 2012
Verified Purchase
My experience of trainers is very limited, and I'm not a runner, more of a jogger-on-the-spot-while-watching-TV. But I did need to replace the shoes I use for a daily workout, and modern sports shops are a bit intimidating as you head towards 50. So it took me a while to decide on these.

My choice was based on (i) if I'm going to risk shoes over the net it might as well be from someone with a good returns policy (ii) Asics have a good reputation (iii) this pair looked a bit less visually offensive than most modern trainers, and (iv) I was sick of trying to make a decision! :-)

In the end I needn't have worried. These are very comfortable indeed, making a necessary evil (exercise!) much more tolerable. They instantly relegated my old trainers to the "wear when decorating" corner of the closet. And while I'm not a big fan of the way they look, if I ever do go out in them that'll just encourage me to move fast enough that people can't see my feet properly. ;-)

As for fitting, I take a size ten and have pretty wide feet, so normally stick to the wider Clarks type styles. These Asics are not quite so generous in width, but they fit like a glove and are immediately comfortable.

I hope this all helps someone as indecisive as me. I'm pleased enough to be considering a second pair so I'm spared this process in another few years.

4.0 out of 5 stars Like wearing slippers...with laces! 2 Mar 2012
By Elliott
Bought these after getting my Gait checked at a specialist runners shop and was told my feet need mild support. Was recommended these trainers and so after much searching, found the best price on Amazon (mainly due to free delivery).
These trainers are extremely comfortable and offers the support and cushioning that I need for road running. I do quite a few road races and half marathons if I get chance and so I recommend these trainers highly if you are thinking of taking up running...however, get your gait checked first to make sure you have the correct footwear as it does make a difference.
I got these trainers within 4 days of ordering them so good delivery. Excellent value, good spec running trainer in the Gel series.

5.0 out of 5 stars Asics 1170 9 Jan 2013
Colour Name:Black/Onyx/Graphite|Size Name:9 UK
I started running 2 years ago, and on recommendation undertook gait analysis prior to purchasing my trainers. As a 'mild overpronator' the Asics 1150's were recommended and bought. They were an absolute joy, and really lightweight. Sadly, after a couple of years of regular jogging (5k ish, 2 to 3 times a week, with the occasional 10k race) they had lost a bit of their skock absorbency. So I plumped for these on the basis that they were the same, but a newer model. These are absolutely brilliant, although during the first few runs they felt slightly heavier.
Highly recommended for Mild Overpronators.

4.0 out of 5 stars asics stability trainer 11 Nov 2012
By BOOZ
Verified Purchase
Arrived in 2 days in perfect condition. Excellent all black stability trainer . Why other trainer manufacturers have not cottoned onto fact that not all over pronators are runners and hence do not want garish luminous colours on their trainers - an all black stability trainer like this one fits the bill nicely.

These trainers are great. The extra support on the instep really helps align my feet due to fallen arches. They are of a high quality and very comfortable to wear. Stylish too with an excellent price from Amazon.

5.0 out of 5 stars The most comfortable trainers ever! 10 Feb 2013
By Juliet
Colour Name:Black/Onyx/Graphite| Size Name:7.5 UK|Verified Purchase
When we were in Dresden during the summer my husband found a pair of Asic trainers. He walked out of the shop wearing them and since then has worn them almost continuously. He finds them the most comfortable footwear he has ever worn. However with so much wearing I felt he would soon need another pair and fortunately I found,what seemed to be an identical pair for sale through Amazon. Now he is blissfully happy to,have two pairs, and I also know here to get another pair when the need arises. Wonderful! Perhaps I should look for a similar pair for women.,

Colour Name:Black/Onyx/Graphite| Size Name:11 UK|Verified Purchase
I decided to but these trainers based on reviews from people with heel pain caused by impact. I found them to be excellent with the gel sole cushioning impacts and reducing the pain. I would certainly recommend them to anyone with this kind of condition
