Rearfoot and Forefoot GEL Cushioning Systems
Welcome the Spring/Summer 2013 range The ASICS GEL-PHOENIX Running Shoes feature rearfoot and forefoot gel cushioing to attenuate shock during impact and toe-off phases to allow movement in multiple planes as the foot transitions through the gait cycle. A full length guidance line with flex grooves to decouple the tooling along the line of progression provides enhanced gait efficiency as you run. An SpEVA midsole lasting material provides a soft but stable platform that improves bounce back characteristics while the Trusstic System reduces the weight of the sole unit while retaining the structural integrity of the shoe for a lightweight ride underfoot. A California slip last ensures increased stability and comfort while AHAR+ rubber is placed on high abrasion areas for improved durability and great traction underfoot.
I've only had a couple of runs on them but they appear to be very good. I've had many different models of Asics over the years and they have always performed well. I usually manage 20 miles per week and at this rate I recommend you renew every 6 months. I used my last trainers for too long and they caused joint damage in the end as there was no impact absorption left.
