The 10th anniversary of the GT-1000™ EARTH DAY running shoe takes a big step forward in what this model stands for. The previous edition set the stage in providing intrinsic value with the midsole, allowing this update to focus on the upper. Designed for the runner with an active lifestyle, they're seeking a lightweight everyday trainer with excellent cushioning. Part of our EARTH DAY collection, this shoe features recycled materials with neutral hues on the upper that require less water, inks, and dyes for the coloring process.
The upper has been reimagined with a new engineered mesh that adjusts to your foot's natural shape while providing a comfortable midfoot hold. With the addition of an integrated support system, this application improves the heel fit and creates a more secure feel.
Featuring a layer of GEL™ technology cushioning in the heel to improve shock absorption, the shoe also integrates a FLYTEFOAM™ midsole material that offers a softer and more supportive feeling at footstrike. Lastly, the DUOMAX™ support system consists of a firmer density of foam placed on the medial side of the midsole to help reduce the foot's pronounced inward roll (overpronation) while improving stability.
