Following along with some cool gear released for Breast Cancer Awareness month is this Special Edition version of the Asics GT-1000 running shoe. It is simply another way for guys to show their support for an extremely worthy cause, and follows the Puma evoSPEED Project Pink and the Adidas BCA releases in terms of design. You get a bold Pink colorway that features a lot of pop, with a signature Pink ribbon located just behind the heel.
Here is more details about the shoes, directly from Asics:
ASICS is proud to help in the fight against breast cancer with the special edition GT-1000™ PR. Offering performance, fit, and cushioning for mild to moderate over-pronators, the GT-1000 PR is more than just a running shoe. ASICS has teamed up with the Christina Applegate’s Right Action For Women, a charitable services fund of the Entertainment Industry Foundation (EIF), to help provide assistance to women who are at increased risk for breast cancer.
For those interested in picking up a pair, you can get them at AsicsAmerica for $100. More images and details on the boot below.
In terms of performance, this is a shoe that has a lot going on. I haven’t tested this version, but I am currently finalizing a review for the , which offers an extremely similar experience.
- DuoMax® Support System
A dual density midsole system positioned to enhance support and stability, positioned sport specifically.
- Guidance Line®
Vertical flex groove decouples the tooling along the line of progression for enhanced gait efficiency.
- Rearfoot and Forefoot GEL® Cushioning Systems
Attenuates shock during impact and toe-off phases, and allows movement in multiple planes as the foot transitions through the gait cycle.
- Trusstic System®
Reduces the weight of the sole unit while retaining the structural integrity of the shoe.
And just to note, for every pair of the GT-1000™ PR shoes sold from October 1 to October 31, 2012, ASICS will donate $2.00 to the
@1capplegate Foundation, with maximum donation of $100,000.
Who likes the look and would be willing to run in pair this color?
