GT stands for Grand Touring after the car as they want any runner to go anywhere in comfort and style. The GT-2000 is one of ASICS’s most popular models. The updated GT-2000 9 has been redesigned with a one piece mesh construction for an improved fit over the top of the foot. This new upper material has been reinforced in key areas for added support as the foot rolls through the gait cycle. Runners looking for a soft-cushioned stability shoe, that works for any distance of run, will like the GT-2000.
