The Asics GT 1000 4 is the second update of the GT 1000 series released in 2015 so please do not expect big changes in one of the best value for money running shoe among stability ones. Well known for its durability and reliable cushioning.
Major change from its predecessor the GT 1000 3 is the engineered mesh upper with minimal overlays to improve breathability. Although the GT 1000 4 is not the fastest training shoe out there, response for heel strikers has been enhanced by increasing drop to industry standard's 10 mm.
The GT 1000 4 keeps the plastic shank (Trusstic System®) in the midfoot assisting double density midsole (Dynamic DuoMax®) to improve stability. Due to great durability and grip performance, outsole mantains previous design and materials. Different reflective elements from 3M® are present on both sides and heel counter in order to increase visibility under poor light conditions.
