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.

Shoe suits me well!

By Anonymous

from Undisclosed

Comments about ASICS GEL-Forte Men Gray/Blue:

I'm a severe over-pronator and this shoe suits me well. I use these for work and I am on my feet all day. They provide the perfect stability for me and for extra cushion I slip in a Dr. Scholls insole. I'm currently starting to wear my 3rd Forte pair and the only downfall is they only last me about 3-4 months before the bottom of the shoe wears down. I absolutely loved the 2160s and 2170s models so it was hard to find the next Asics shoe for me.

definitely not a replacement for the evolution

By Anonymous

from Undisclosed

Comments about ASICS GEL-Forte Men Gray/Blue:

If I had never worn the evolution I might have given a better rating.But to say that this is a replacement is a great disappointment. There is minimal heel/ankle support and the hard base is killing my feet, even in low impact activities. I can't just cannot describe how disappointed I am. I have held off purchasing these, due to the other reviews but thought it best to try them myself. Needless to sayI will be looking to other brands for my running shoes now on.

I purchased 2 pair of Gel Forte assuming they were a step up from my aged Asic Kanbarras. They look great. However, soles are extremely stiff for gels, lateral support minimal if any, arch seems non existent.

  • Q:

    I currently have a mizuno wave alchemy 12 shoe. It's a size 9 1/2 2e. What size asics gel-forte would be similar to the minuno shoe. Thanks in advance for your help.

      A:

      The Mizuno Alchemy tends to fit a little bit on the snug side, especially in the heel. The GEL-Forte also fits a bit on the snug side, so you should be fine getting the same size; however, if possible, you may want to also order a half size up as well to make sure that you can find the optimal fit.
