Motion Control. Moderate to severe overpronators will love the ASICS GEL-Forte™. The GEL-Forte™ takes a new approach on maximum support with the Dynamic DuoMax® support system that reduces weight while enhancing stability, leaving you with a lighter shoe that doesn't skimp on support.

Upper: P.H.F.™ (Personal Heel Fit) system features two layers of memory foam that line the collar and mold the athlete's foot. Exoskeletal Heel Clutching System™ improves support and creates an improved heel fitting environment.

Midsole: Impact Guidance System (I.G.S.®) design philosophy employs linked componentry that enhances the foot's natural gait from heel strike to toe-off. Rearfoot and forefoot GEL® cushioning systems attenuate shock during impact and toe-off phases and allows movement in multiple planes as the foot transitions through the gait cycle. Dynamic DuoMax® support system is the next evolution of the DuoMax® dual-density midsole support system that reduces weight while enhancing stability and support. Solyte® midsole material is lighter in weight than ASICS' standard EVA and SpEVA while still enhancing cushioning and durability. The Trusstic System® reduces the weight of the sole unit while retaining the structural integrity of the shoe. Removable, ComforDry™ sockliner provides cushioning performance and anti-odor properties for a cooler, drier, healthier environment.

Outsole: Guidance Line® vertical flex groove decouples the tooling along the line of progression for enhanced gait efficiency. AHAR® (ASICS High Abrasion Rubber) is placed in critical areas of the outsole for exceptional durability.

*Recipient of the American Podiatric Medical Association Seal of Acceptance, which recognizes products that have been found beneficial to foot health, and of significant value when used in a consistently applied program of daily foot care and regular professional treatment.

        I love the neutral colours and are very comfortable.

        Service and delivery comments:

        Delivery as promised and product in excellent condition, if I buy again it was because product was on time and I love them but customer service was a nasty but Holabird Sports provided otherwise fab website and buying experience, it's the workers who made it a bad memory but one did try to redeem the others so that helped take the sting out. Thanks.

          Comments about ASICS GEL-Forte Women's Gray/Purple:

          For women who are insulted by wearing men's sizes and can't get wide enough women's sizes. Some working stock genes which provide for walking barefoot and crushing grapes aren't the marketing target of the fashion industry. The only real option is Asics Gel Wide. My wife finds these very comfortable.

              What is the difference between the Asics Women's Gel Forte and the Ladies Gel Forte?

                A:

                There is currently only one version of the ASICS GEL-Forte. It is available in two colors for women (http://www.holabirdsports.com/catalogsearch/result/?cat=740&q=forte). They are the same, except for the color.

              • A:

                There is no difference. Both pair of these sneakers that are available on the website have lady in the name, not women's.
