The industry's most popular running shoe returns in the form of the GT-2160™. This updated model maintains the stable platform, cushioned ride and exceptional fir that runners love. With the addition of Guidance Line™ for an efficient ride, this shoe will continue to meet and exceed the expectations of millions of runners world wide.
Upper: Mesh and synthetic upper is breathable and comfortable. The upper contains reflective materials designed to enhance visibility during low light hours. P.H.F.® (Personal Heel Fit) features two layers of memory foam in the collar that mold to the athlete's heel, creating a personalized fit.
Midsole: The Impact Guidance System (I.G.S.®) employs linked componentry that enhances the foot's natural gait from heel strike to toe-off. The Space Trusstic System® is a midfoot stabilizer that creates a pocket between the Trusstic System® device and the midsole, allowing for controlled midsole deformation and more efficient foot function. Solyte® midsole material is a lighter weight midsole compound than ASICS' standard EVA and SpEVA® that provides enhanced cushioning and durability. The DuoMax® support system features a dual-density midsole system positioned sport specifically to enhance support and stability. A Dual density Solyte® 55 last employs 55 degree density Solyte® lasting material in the heel and forefoot for improved comfort. Rear and forefoot GEL® cushioning system attenuates shock during impact and toe-off phases and allows movement in multiple planes as the foot transitions through the gait cycle. A removable ComforDry™ sockliner provides cushioning performance and anti-microbial properties for a cooler, drier, and healthier environment.
Outsole: AHAR®, ASICS High Abrasion Rubber, is placed in critical areas of the outsole for exceptional durability. A DuraSponger® outsole features a blown AHAR® rubber compound for enhanced cushioning and durability in the forefoot. Guidance Liner™ vertical flex groove decouples the tooling along the line of progression for enhanced gait efficiency.
Available in widths AA (Narrow), B (Medium), D (Wide), and EE (Extra Wide).

Runner's World Editor's Choice
"The 2160 wraps the foot in a soothing embrace that makes long runs feel much shorter. And the interior of this update has even more soft lining in the upper than the previous version, creating a snug fit without pressure points. Asics softened the Gel and foam midsole and added deep grooves in the outsole to provide a smooth feel through toe-off. Wear-testers loved the overall fit and not-too-mushy underfoot feel of this shoe. We recommend the 2160 as a supportive high-mileage shoe for normal- to low-arched runners."
