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 Women's Gray/Purple:

      I ordered these shoes based on the asics website recommended for my running method. They are cute but runs way too small. I ordered a 9 and normally wear 8.5. This shoes was too tight and cut short around the toes. Had to return.

      Service and delivery comments:

      My delivery arrived in about 3 days from the date the order was processed. Customer service was average. I was shipping shoe to an address different from my billing address. They emailed me to confirm this wasn't fraud which was great however it was about 1 week after I placed the order. Once they sent the order out it arrived quickly.

        These are great shoes for,running. I need motion control shoes, and these are the only ones I can wear. My podiatrist recommended them for running so I can avoid tendinitis.

            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.

            Answered on 3/14/2013 by Ryan from Holabird Sports
          • A:

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