The agile Gel DS Racer 11 is the ideal racing flat for mild to moderate overpronators (it might be worth looking at its direct competitor New Balance 1500 v1). With just 8 mm drop and dual density medial post it provides a responsive and stable ride and is a perfect choice to run fast with enough protection even in long distances like marathon. For more versatile running shoes please check its bigger sibling the popular Gel DS Trainer 21.
Upper changes from its predecessor the Gel DS Racer 10 and now is more robust but still breathable and seamless to avoid friction. Although the Gel DS Racer 11 is a narrow running shoe default insole can be removed and replaced with custom (orthotic) one. Reflective material (on the heel and logo) from 3M™ is included to increase visibility under poor light conditions.
Midsole in Gel DS Racer 11 is made of reliable Solyte® foam with rearfoot GEL® for enhanced shock absorption while pronation control relies on dual density medial post (DuoMax®). Outsole has beed redesigned for improved response and only TPU unit (Propulsion Trusstic®) remains in the midfoot for smooth transition. Perforated mid and outsole (Magic Sole™) features extra breathability and AHAR+ rubber for better abrasion resistance increases shoe's durability.
