The Asics GT-2000 line is very much like Liesl Von Trapp from “The Sound of Music”. Both are stable, trustworthy, and 16 going on 17. Anything around that long is bound to learn and grow more useful, except the current generation of teenagers. That’s why Asics trusts its revamped GT-2170 not to wrap the brand’s carefully detailed reputation around a telephone pole. Or date Rolfe.
GT-2170 is a Structured Cushioning running shoe, which means you get an equal mix of support and impact protection. It’s the lightest GT yet and features a new Discrete Eyestay as well as a one piece GEL unit in the heel.
Don’t be Baroness Schräder. Check out the Asics video rundown of the GT-2170, which is set for a Spring 2012 wide release.
