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.

      Comments about ASICS GEL-Forte Men Gray/Blue:

      This is the second pair of Asics Forte i have purchased. On my first pair, i mistakenly got a standard width and was not very happy. Got the 4e this time, much much better. Great shoe for a heavier walker/jogger/ 5k runner.

        I spoke to ASICS and the 2000, series 2 is the shoe I am needing. Either I did not understand the description or the description is not accurate. These so called running shoes have no give, no yield. Very tough on my feet.,

          These shoes work great with my orthotic inserts. I have very flat feet and these shoes support my serious over pronation.

            Asic discontinued the model of shoe I used previously and Holabird recommended the Forte in it's place. I was having discomfort in my knee which disappeared almost immediately after I began using the Forte. Thank you Holibird.

            • 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.
